Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I have gone through your question in detail and I can uderstand what you are going through.
Firstly let me assure you that schizophrenia can never set in for you. Your age is not in the favour of the diagnosis of schizophrenia and you dont have even asingle symptom of schizophrenia.
Regarding pedophilia, you dont have any symptom of pedophilia. Some mild erection may occur when children touch the genitals but that doesnt mean your mind wants to have sex with children. From all what you have stated, you are definately not having pedophilia.
Regarding venlafaxine, its good that you have upped the dose of venlafaxine to 150 mg per day and the effect of increase in the dose will be evident after one week or so. Infact the dose of venlafaxine can be further increased to 225 mg depending on the requirement.
Please dont panic and things will be taken care of you.

Sir thanku.. so I hvent no pedophillic impulses.?.. and sir wat is the age of pedopjillia onset .. and have any chance to me to have an onset in my age.. 100/ surely I am saying I have no impulses towards kids in my life... and the accidental gentle touching on penis and its erction never leads to a paraphillic man, can I get a assurance from u..? And frm movie ( seen kids) any thing happen wrong erection.(never happend in my life).? Sir venlafaxine xr 150 mg up dosed yday.. how many days it take for working... and this anxiety about pedophillia and worries can lead to real pedophillia ( any chance)
100% assurance from my side that you will never develop pedophilia and your thoughts will not lead to pedophilia.
The age of onset of pedophilia is somewhere around 15-20 and you are past that age.
The upping of venlafaxine dose will take atleast 7 days to show any positive response.

When we come in life, we can get any kind of disease. But there is no use in worrying about 'n' number of diseases when we dont have it now. The diseases that you have mentioned, you are very unlikely to have them as none of your symptoms and age group suggests so. Sexual preferences do not change with time.
Do continue your treatment for the hypochondriasis.
