Any thoughts on venlafaxine vs duloxetine or anything else? I’m not currently on an AP anymore since I don’t need it to stave off severe positives (I do have certain tendencies which indicate I might benefit from low dose AP but that’s for another time and another cost:benefit analysis). I suffer greatly at the hands of negatives (you name it, I got it) though and am looking for something to help make my life a little easier, even if only slightly. I feel like even a small improvement would be appreciated. Within the realms of possible and helpful improvements I was thinking something to help tiredness, which led me to think of an SNRI.
I just want some little tool to help ease the incessant reminders of my inadequacies whilst retaining as many functiona/productivel faculties as possible. I’ve been on quite a few SSRIs in the past and though I always ended up coming off them, I recognise their usefulness though and I did find them quite good for anxiety-reduction, not so much in other domains, back then I mistook my anhedonia and zombieness as being caused by the SSRIs though.
