started on venlafaxine for deep depression. I'd stopped sleeping. in the first week I started sleeping normally again. it only worked for the depression after about 7 weeks. so be patient. now and then I still get episodes of hypomania but that's controlled with oxazepam. really happy with this medicine. I used paroxetine first but it made the hypomania much worse.
