How to cure anxiety and depression?

i recently changed prescription medicine from Paxil 30 mg to Effexor (not sure of spelling) 37.5 mg. My dr. advised that it was ok to just make the switch. Stop paxil one day and start efexor the next. It has been almost a month now and I have become angry, no tolerance, and depressed all of the time. Is this normal and will it take more than one month to begin to take effect?

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. Many researches and researchers confirm that medicines alone cannot cure mental disorders. Life style changes, change in thinking pattern, relaxation etc are as essential as medicines. Psychotherapy can help you changing your lifestyle and thinking patterns. Yoga and meditation help you to streamline your metabolism and neurological balance. Please consult a psychologist for further information.

If you require more of my help in this aspect, Please post a direct question to me in this website. Make sure that you include every minute details possible. I shall prescribe the needed psychotherapy techniques.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
