I’ve had mental health issues for 23 years now, clinical depression, but it’s difficult getting good help on the NHS. I’ve been prescribed a number of different drugs and eventually got prescribed Venlafaxine 300mg. Been on that now for 20 years.

In the beginning my constant thoughts were, please let me die, it was a very dark place. Thankfully I’ve got a handle on it these days but I know it’s just there bubbling away in the dark recesses of my mind and can break through into my consciousness when I’m feeling low. I can cope now but it does make life pretty painful at times.

      I share your pain, as I’ve also struggled with mental health issues, most of my life. Have been on numerous medication, finally found one what suits me. Mirtazapine 15 mg.
      Hope you get the help you need and soon feel better.
