    Thumbs down Stuck in a rut with Efexor XR and a psychiatrist

    Looking for advice...

    I'm in Australia. I see a psychiatrist, mostly because I was having trouble managing medication. I only see this particular psychiatrist because he doesn't charge an out-of-pocket fee.

    I would like to change medications 'cos Efexor XR sucks hard!!!

    I find that it works OK for a bit but at certain points in the day I go suddenly, sharply downhill.

    It's like for periods of time it just stops working and I feel unwell and a lot of the time I get exhausted and angry and just turn into a jerk. This stuff never happened when I wasn't on the Efexor.

    Psychiatrist seems reluctant for me to come off.

    I'm desperate to change.

    What should I do? How do I plead my case? I'm desperate to get out of this rut!!

    What's the dosage of effexor xr you're using?

    Are you in therapy at all?
