Obviously, you basically need to discuss this in detail with your psychiatrist, who will know all the most relevant details. I haven't come across Valdoxan causing increased anxiety, though some antidepressants certainly can, but with the added psychological and hormonal components of a PND, one needs to be flexible in considering alternative treatments. Within 4 weeks, let alone 8, on any AD, one should have seen its full potential benefits, and if its not adequate, one would then consider trying an original tactic.
Sometimes, too, its worth adding some CBT style counselling from a psychologist to the mix, to help deal with the inevitable psychol;ogical aspects of such illnesses.
