A 38-year-old member asked:

My fianc has autoimmune hepatitis and recently she's been suffering from severe anxiety and depression. Ssri's may have made it worse. What's wrong?

Meds and hepatitis: There are many possibilities. Some ssri's can "activate" people and make them feel worse before they feel better. Or, the medicine may not be a good metabolic fit for her, an important consideration given that ssri's are processed in the liver. It could also be the course of her anxiety and depression is worsening. In any case, please have her follow-up with her doctor to get to the bottom of it!

Please clarify: Are you saying your depression is in remission on effexor (venlafaxine)? If so what dose. Are you saying while on the Effexor (venlafaxine) you still have social anxiety? What else have you tried for the social anxiety?
