I've been having some DP lately I also have real bad anxiety. I've been trying to find a antidepressant that will help with the anxiety. Currently taking 20mg of lexapro and it seems to help with the anxiety but still having some dp.

Should I try to find another antidepressant?
Is my anxiety causing the dp? Or do I just have dp disorder. I'm all messed up and it's exhausting. Thanks for any help

How long have you been taking the Lexapro?

Midnight...meditation...hmm, please tell us more. I am extremely interested. I had some crazy semi-psychotic stuff happen thru meditation but I would love to know what effect it in precipitating your dp/dr.

I believe mine is from being isolated. I was very active in my career and then retired, so started up an online gift shop. That went well for several years, kept me very busy here at home and then business took a nose-dive for some reason, so I closed the store. Then the anxiety/depression struck while sitting here at home and depersonalization and derealization hit me when I would take a short drive with hubby to a store across town or whatever. Idle minds are the devil's workshop and mine sure turned on me when it had nothing else to do. I have to make an effort to get out every day, even if it's just to drive around town a little bit. I will conquer this. I will not let my life be controlled by this.

Can someone please tell me if this is Dp?

One night I woke up with a panic attack. I was currently taking celexa at the time for panic disorder. This was my first panic attack in over 3 years. Anyways. Fast forward today. I'm currently taking 20mg of trintellix for depression and anxiety. The medicine has helped my depression a lot but I still feel I have some anxiety attacks. Anyways, here goes. I still don't feel like myself, it's like I'm spaced out all time. It's a weird feeling in my head with pressure sometimes. I just don't feel like me anymore. I've felt like this since the middle of January of this year. I experience this feeling the most when I'm driving at work. I've read the symptoms of dp but don't feel like I really have them. I mean. I still have emotions and don't see the world behind a glass. I feel overwhelmed all the time. Is this part of dp or is this just because of my anxiety and depression. I plan on making a appointment with a psychiatrist this week. Any help would be greatly appreciated

what do you mean by dp as a symptom not the disorder? I have the disorder (constant 24-7 for 6 years) has been better at times though, would none of this count for me?
