Switching from one antidepressant to another
Hey, I am Olga and I'm new here. Sorry for any mistakes as I am not a native speaker. I've been on the Mighty for quite a while and honestly I'm positively overwhelmed by sheer amount of support and kindness people get here.
A few months ago I could proudly say I got rid of my depression (ha-ha) but it turned out now I am having another relapse. Fortunately I could afford to go to the doctor straight away and had to switch from SSRI to SNRI. It took some time to make a transition and tomorrow I start a new med. It was not all sunshine and roses and I guess I am quite exhausted and hope that I feel even the slightest bit better soon.
My question is how do you support yourself in this time of uncertainty when the old meds don't work as they should be and the new haven't kicked in yet?
