Re: venlafaxine for fibro and depression

Over the past 13 years I've been on several anti-depressants. Most will work on me pretty good for around 2 years or so. It sucks having to change meds and trying to find the right one I know. I started 1 last Sept. that I thought was great at first, by, I think it was May, I had to have a new one as it had totally quit working, usually when 1 stops working I get in grouchy ugly moods, this time I was either weeping, crying or bawling all the time. As it stands now I take 2 different anti-depressants although 1 is supposed to help with going to sleep.
Anyway, we are here for you, most if not all have had to switch meds of some kind at various times, we understand. I wish I could say something that would be really helpful, but hopefully this will help a little.
