I’ve been on 75mg+37.5mg venlafaxine for about 6 months, various other ssri/snris for 3 years, depressed for about 5 years.

I have never felt this way before, but for the last ~10 days I have had very persistent passive suicidal ideation. It’s like there’s a parallel train of thought stuck in the back of my head on repeat, a nagging feeling that I want to die.

No recent changes to my life or circumstances. Onset of wanting to die is consistent with a day after picking up my prescription refill.

  1. is anyone familiar with this constant feeling of wanting to die in the background?

  2. is anyone familiar with batch to batch variation in venlafaxine effectiveness?
