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

As Allison said, if you really had DP, you would freaked out and be convinced something has drastically change in your perception and feel impaired with reality. What you're feeling might have something to do with your anxious condition, depression and maybe most importantly the drug you're taking. It doesn't seem you have either DR or DP since you sense your feelings / emotions / environment / social environment. How long is your treatment supposed to last ? Maybe you should wait and see how you feel when it's over.

Take care
