Venlafaxine - as bad as duloxetine?

Hi all,

It's been a while since I last posted. Now under Dr Lambru, a splendid chap, and receiving a much better standard of care. However, I am now trying Venlafaxine with little or no success and the usual side-efects. I am not keen on pursuing this drug as it affects my ability to function for my job and was wondering if anyone else with SUNA has had success with it so that I can make a judgment as to whether to continue in th ehope of some relief.

Also, for the record, I have had two lots of Botox (without any benefit other than taking years off me and looking like Spock).

I'm not sure what the next treatment will be but keen to hear if anyone has found anything non anti-depressant drug that has worked for them. I find the anti-depressants alter my personality and sitch me off and the anti-siezure drugs turn me into a zombie.

Anyone out there with SUNA having any success?

All best
