I have had depression since 2nd week of December last year. First of all the general practitioner put me on following combination i.e. fluoxetine, tripiline (spelling?) and sleeping
tablet (Zolpidem).3 months ago I went to a Psychiatrist due to bad insomnia
. He put me on Mirteron, starting with 15mg, month later increased it to 30mg, and last month to 45mg – these I take at night 21h00pm. At 22h00pm I take a Zolpidem sleeping table (10mg). My sleep is average 4-5 hours (22h00pm – 03h00am). My depression has shown an increase but not desired effect. Therefore the psychiatrist prescribed Venlor 75mg. After taking my 1st tablet yesterday morning (08h00am), I felt so drugged, and I have no emotions whatsoever. Is this normal? I just want to make sure before I phone my psychiatrist tomorrow.
