Well, he said exactly following: "Yes recovered but it can sometimes return when under stress."

In a YouTube comment he said SSRI's are what sent him on the road to recovery. Disappointing answer, I know.

Thank you! :)

Maybe you could also ask him how he was cured and if he is still on medication.

Where did he say that?

Just a maintenance dose. But I have gone long periods without

On the YouTube video called "Depersonalization in the news" he responds to a comment asking for help by saying "try to get a doc to prescribe Anafranil or the powerful MAO inhibitors parnate or marplan." I assume that means those helped him recover.

I know, but these are not SSRIs but other antidepressants.

I have tried Marplan for 12.weeks at a dose of 60.mg. That is a very high dose. The normal dose for major depression is between 20-40.mg. It is very difficult to get a psychiatrist to prescribe a irreversible MAO due to the risk of fatal rise in blood pressure if the dietary restrictions is broken. There are many psychiatrists who do not prescribe them at all for the same reason. My estimate from Denmark is that 90% of private practicing psychiatrists have not prescribed a MAOI. They have their place in the treatment of major depression and should likely be used more for people who do not respond to other antidepressants. But, I don’t think that MAOI is a treatment for depersonalization. He is the only one I have heard of who have benefited from it. He could have suffered from major depression with secondary symptoms of depersonalization and not depersonalization disorder in its primary form.

One of the antidepressants with the fewest side effects in me. It lowered the blood pressure so I became more dizzy. Then there the dietary restrictions but one gets used to them. I tried before it was known I had depersonalization. It was thought I had a form of atypical depression then.
