Thank you Kate for your kind concern. I have recently had my thyroid tested twice; once before going on Lithium and once after a week of starting on the same. I think the weakness is mostly due to Effexor. I just hadn’t noticed it until I came off the drug and went on Mirtazapine.

Right now I am really confused because the old muscle tension is getting worse and again it could be because of Effexor or just the frustration I feel. Anyway I am reluctant to give up so soon on the combination of Venlafaxine and Mirtazapine.

Doctors say, as well as the labels on most of the antidepressants that it takes up two weeks or more before the drug starts to have an effect. However in my experience either a drug starts working within a week or it never gets going. So I’ll give it a few more days and see what happens.

Thanks again
