How have you found augmenting Venlafaxine with Quina? It is a combination my DR has suggested to me in the past.

Re: Hi all.

Many thanks, Sally. Yes, germophobia is a debilitating fear of germs. (Mysophobia is the actual medical term for the illness.) Often, as in my case, the illness leads to a fear to come into contact with anything from the outside world, and, thus, agoraphobia. There are so few useful online resources...

Re: You don't have to go through this alone.

Public services are poor for mental health suffers. In addition, I've found many of the websites of charities and organizations to be completely useless. There's a paucity of active forums for suffers to engage and receive/offer mutual support, and inadequate actual support groups; in my area there ...

Re: Quetiapine?

Any update from the OP?
I'm interested in learning more about the efficacy of this med. I think it is most efficacious when used to augment another med. However, I'd like to know more from actual people with experiences, rather than psychiatric journals!

Re: medications

Has anyone else taken these drugs and had this affect? Sally Hi Sally. I've taken both meds and can't say I noticed any analgesic benefit. I'm not sure how either the SNRI or the hypnotic could have efficacy vis-a-vis long-term pain relief. Anyway, good that it's working that way for you! (FYI, the...

Re: Self Help Books and Websites Can Benefit Severely Depres

I'm always skeptical about 'self-help' books. However, I recently read Lewis Walpart's 'Malignant Sadness' and also Tim Cantopher's 'Depressive Illness'. Both were pretty good. Syron's 'Darkness Visible' remains a good narrative to give to family members, to help understand what the sufferer is goin...

Hello all, I've been periodically visiting the site for months but have always been too hesitant to join, until today! I suffer from debilitating phobic anxiety and depression. Depression and germophobia/mysophobia have been the proverbial soundtrack of my life, but they really took over about 4 yea...
