Moongirl, when you said everything looked brighter did brighter settings cause that dp feeling? When the sunshine into a room through a window, or looking up at the bright blue sky , all bright sunlight can cause a complete dreamlike feeling... dis u feel this? It's been lingering with me for a while. Mostly that derealized dreamlike feel.

Yes! That is the one thing that still lingers with me. When I am in a setting with really bright fluorescent lights and am in close proximity to other people like for instance in restaurants I start to have that detached feeling but it fades away whenever I get in a different setting

Another +1 for Atypical / SSRI combo.... It works wonders for me too...

Im so glad you are feeling better Moongirl........

Just be very careful if you decide to come off the meds...Very very slowly and very very steadily...

But my advice when it comes to this horrible condition is if you find something that works stick with it...

The truth is different people experience different results with meds when it comes to treating DP especially...Meds are not for everyone but when they do work they can be life saving....They definitely were life saving and still are in my own case....

Thank you and yes I am so thankful this combo worked for me! I’m not planning on coming off them anytime soon but if I do for some reason eventually I’ll keep your words in mind. I agree about the life saving comment, don’t know what I would have done without them

Congrats! Glad you found something that worked for you and thank you for coming back tot share your story

Weird that combo works although in the uk I would struggle to get an antipsychotic I think.

I have been on Imipramine for almost 4 weeks now and am starting to feel it is helping. Strange that it obviously acts on serotonin and also norepinephrine, but it is also blocks D2 receptors similar to antipsychotics. Will update my progress on the thread I started, but just wanted to add that as the SSRI/Atypical antipsychotic combo seems to have worked for many as have clomipramine/imipramine

Glad you are feeling better and hope you reach full recovery soon! And yes it seems this combo is very helpful for some, but sadly not for some others :(
