    My observation is the fickle fingers of fate leave few lives totally untouched by hard times. The survival trick is to focus on where you want to be, not where you are in the moment. Keep reminding yourself that this too will pass.

    Up to you, but as I understand it you've only been on 30mg for a week which is nowhere near long enough to draw any conclusions about its likely effectiveness.

    Get back to your GP and ask for something to tied you over until mirtazapine becomes effective, Tristan.

    Your doctor is correct, Tristan. It may even take a little longer than 4-6 weeks. ADs are not instant meds such as say aspirin.

    Re: Advice needed

    I know itís hard waiting but you really need to give it more time. Iíve started to realise looking back that Iíve never gone more than 4/5 weeks before increasing/adding anything so not giving the meds enough time to settle down which could be why this episode has been going on for so long.

    Iím currently 4 weeks and 4 days into an increase to maximum dose of 375mg ven and still feeling like shit with the occasional ok-ish day but Iím determined to wait it out until at least the 6 week mark. Seeing the psychiatrist on 2nd March and wonít be surprised if she suggests increasing my mirtazapine to 45mg or quetiapine to 300mg next (although she was keen to get me off these last time)
