hi all after many years of being well and having  my deppression undercontrol it has come back with a big hit!!!!
im getting the same old feelings of "unreality"if you know what i mean fell like this is not realy happerning everything is familiar yet unfamiliar.
just been to local doc as ive been on venlafaxine(effexor) 75mg for many years and said to up it to 150mg is that a high dosage!!!!
ive just got married to my loverly partner of 5 yrs but just 2 weeks after the wedding her farther died and we had to do all the arengments etc.
so from a major high in my life to a deep low in a matter of weeks.
i have a real phobia of death and seem to have depressive episopes every few yrs.

Well, Welcome back to Healing Well.  I'm sorry that you have had a setback in your depression.

You asked about your dosage of Effexor being upped from 75mg to 150mg.  This is not a high dose at all.  Many people take 300mg daily.  I was kinda of surprised that you were stable on 75mg for "many years".  I take 225 mg of Effexor XR (150mg cap & 75mg cap) and I feel great.

It seems that you have a lot of insight into your disease process which is good.  I believe that some times you have to fall back a little to keep going forward.
