Our expert says:
This can indeed be an occasional side-effect of many antidepressants. Presumably your psychiatrist considers your Depression to be still highly active and in continuing need of AD medication, hence the plan to switch from Remeron to Venlor.
This would be unlikely if this has been your first episode of Depression, so I'm guessing that maybe you have had two or three previous episodes, and have previously relapsed on stopping ADs ?
Loss of libido is also a potential and occasional side effect, esp[ecially of some Ads, and this also needs to be taken into account.
There is no Ad reliably fre from side-effects - although, as I keep emphasizing, we differ individually in how we respond to them, and SOME individual Ads are virtually free of annoying siode-effects in SOME people. But the best combination of drug and person is only findable by trial and error.
I have still found no good reseach evidence that Omega-3 isreliably useful in depression or any other condition, or that the benefits reported are anything more than placebo effects
