I had given up on medication, ive been on effexor for years and it wasnt helping, ive been on a dozen other drugs that never helped. But i went to the doctors 3 weeks ago and they added lamotrigine and hydroxyzine and the blank mind is gone, my dp is clearing up after 6 years of having it.

 

update, it's about a month later, i think the lamotrigine has made my nausea worse in the mornings, it had helped my depression and the hydroxyzine was helping my anxiety when i made this post. i'm going to wean off medication and attempt a more holistic approach.

great to hear OP! wish i could tag people on this site, i'll post this on a few of the blank mind threads, i know a few of us that if we only had this symptom gone the rest would be a lot easier to deal with!

The thing is, i was feeling pretty good for a like a week, and eventually i got an anxious feeling and started questioning how much better was i really feeling and im starting to get in that cycle of overthinking. The lamotrigine did help my depression though, im able to leave the house now and im running every night,still have work to do to get myself better.

Only 50, i've been feeling not so great lately though. I dont know if i should up it because i know its very low or if i should drop everything. I've been on effexor for 3 years and im interested to see what it would feel without medication.
