Switching to a new medication. My behavioral psych person said she could tell just by looking at me that something was wrong. My smile didn't reach my eyes. There was no sparkle.
Idea #1: up the amount of sertraline I am taking from 150mg to 200mg. Try this for 3 weeks and come back for a check-in.
Idea #2: change to venlafaxine HCl in place of the sertraline.
Originally the plan was to try idea #1. I was all set to go with that, but then I hesitated. I told my behavioral psych nurse practitioner that I would feel psychologically better (even if it made little pharmacological sense) if I were trying something new.
It would make me feel more like I was DOING something. She also mentioned that she was not certain that it would make much of a difference to up the amount.
