When I moved and got a new GP, they switched my anti-depressant from a slow release formula to the standard tablets. Between that and the increase of my gabapentin (anti-seizure medicine for pain), I've been on a mental roller coaster. I'm just so glad that my depression is not breaking through much, and that I was able to switch back to the slow release version of venlafaxine.

Depression is a serious and life threatening illness with a stupid name that makes it sound like it's no big deal. Luckily, unlike CFS, it can be treated. If you think you are depressed, see a doctor as soon as you can. Don't be ashamed that you couldn't just 'snap out of it.'
