Should I take this medicine..?
Posted 14 February 2013 - 09:06 PM
This is the new medicine that I've been prescribed to take to help with my depression: http://www.drugs.com...uetiapine.html. It's supposed to work with/support my main antidepressant medication, http://www.drugs.com/venlafaxine.html (ER type), by stabilizing my mood. The side effects that it can have really frighten me, though... :/ Some of the /common/ side effects can be pretty bad, let alone the more uncommon, the rare, or the really serious ones... Idk..
If you guys don't mind skimming over the link I provided on the medicine, I'd like to hear your thoughts regarding the side effects and what you think I should maybe do with the prescription.
