Ohhhh my head is not happy, I said in a past post that I was back on the antidepressants see ‘back in the saddle again’. I went for a review with the doc this week and said to him I thought I might not be getting on with them too well as I was having problems with being tired all the time and my anxiety was getting worse again. He gave me three options, one it was possible that I was just on too lower dose still so it wasn’t doing the job it should be and to increase the dose. Two was that I was right and the drugs didn’t suit me so I could come off them and try something different. Three was to come off them and see if it made any difference to the fatigue as it is possible that it’s MS kicking my arse not the drugs.
I’ve gone for upping the dose and after running around Leeds to try and fill the prescription, as no one seemed to have the pills I needed, I started this morning. It might just be I’ve chosen the wrong option, my head feels as fuzzy as a bag of cotton wool and all I want to do is sleep, my mouth is dry and there’s a suspicious ache in my back that says my liver may not be happy. Luckily I’m off work for the next few days, so Venlafaxine you have until then to behave yourself or you are being thrown away and never coming back. Anyone else ever feel like your being your own personal clinical trial? I do wish humans were a little less awkward and our reactions to drugs could be accurately predicted….but where would the fun be in that?
