So I’ve had derealization from weed for about 3 years now I have tried all ssri and I figured out they don’t work for me so I am on abilify and it works so great I just have one side effect which is decrease in appetite I am upset because they medication works but I need to eat in seems like atypical antipsychotics work for me what is the next one I should try that maybe won’t give me that side effect?

I have been on Risperidone and lithium for a few months now. They barely help me for DR (it might be more an effect of Risperidone rather than lithium, but I have never taken them separately), but I have no appetite problem. In general maybe side effects can vary a lot from person to person. For SSRIs, in the case of Sertraline, for example, both loss of appetite and increase in appetite are listed as possible side effects.

I will switch to Amisulpride (Solian) in a few days, I can let you know what I experience.

Otherwise, I have just started taking naltrexone and it seems to help me more regarding DR, at least for now.
