I have been diagnosed with depression & GAD and had a relasp for 3 months now.. no improvment at all! Waiting for out patient referral.
Generally I can just about cope with it day to day.

About three week's ago when I went to pick up my medication there was a note to say my Venlafaxine (Efexor XR) had been changed to a generic brand of the medication - Enlafax. I didn't think too much of it at the time
