That they used to feel alot better before thay started on anti-depressants? Yea I used to feel dp'd but I was anxious because I thought what the hell is wrong with me. I used to feel strange yea, but 3 months in and I feel like physically strange like weird sensations in my head for the first hour or so when I wake up and I believe I would have been alot closer to reality, if I had of realised what was wrong with me before I started the effexor.

When I say 3 months in, I mean 3 months into effexor. Ive felt dp'd since july. But I didnt know what was wrong with me till I found this site about 2 months ago, by then I was well into my effexor course. I honestly think I wouldnt feel this strange if I had of tackled this problem in my natural state (without effexor).

you'll never know.....you might have been 10 times worse.....i held off taken anti d's for 10 months and no i am not right yet but the symptoms appear to be slowley calming down.....when i first started on the meds everything increased but now its on a constant level...no ups and downs....but blunted emotions.....only only way to tell if you'd be better off without them is to talk to your gp and reduce you dosage slowley to see if you feel any better

Aside from the physical side effects (mostly strange head and chest sensations, numbness, and diarrhea), Zoloft makes me feel even more "dead," both emotionally and consciously. I've dropped myself to 25mg (from 50mg), and the physical symptoms are less pronounced, but I'm still practically a zombie. Sure, my head was a *little* bit clearer and I was more talkative while taking 50mg, but what's the point when I can't even enjoy it?

I hope there's some other med that would be more effective...
