Hi,
I'm 31yr. old female who has recently been "upped" to 225mg of effexor xr and 1mg of klonipin, because of increased anxiety and depression (go figure.) It seems as though after a year or so, I become "immune" to my meds. I've been on effexor for a year, and before that, it was a year of lexapro & ativan, and before that it was a year of zoloft and ativan, and before that...well, I can't remember - the golden oldies era of prozac etc.
I have been feeling extremely apathetic and doing the whole "why are we here?" "why do we bother" routine for a couple of weeks now. Instead of changing my meds, my psych increased them, and I guess I'm just waiting and hoping that these feeling will go away.
Does anybody know of any good depression chat rooms, or if depression chat rooms are even a good idea? I just need a good forum to vent and listen to other people...Not ready for the psych ward (again) just yet. All advice welcomed. Thanks

I have been on effexor for 3 years, at one point taking 300mg a day. I was down to 37.5 a day and then I went down the well again and am up to 150 mg a day along with Cymbalta. Not only do I deal with depresssion, I also have fibromayalgia which makes me even more depressed. I too am questioning "why we deal with it". I keep telling myself that my children would be lost without me. My husband wouldn';t be able to take care of them properly, OK not properly in my eyes. Somedays though, I think I need to be in the psych ward just to keep me safe. Just remember you aren't alone in this and pray that tomorrow will be a better day. Just take it one day at a time.
