I'm on week 3 on 75mg of lamotrigine and sertraline 100 mg....and I swear I think this stuff is working! When I go out things seem better with my perception! I'm sat here watching t.v and things feel more real, it's quite weird cos I've had this nightmare 24/7 for 12 years. Anyways the past 5 days I've noticed little bits of more realness! But today is freaky but a good freaky cos I've been living in a dream state for so bloody long! The thing is I think about dp non stop which I have done for years I've decided just to call it brain fog now, god I hate that word 'depersonalisation ' ! Anyways will be back for an update ????????????????????

Sertraline is what worked for me! I upped my dose when it started to feel like the effects wore off. Enjoy every good moment/day!

Hi everyone I'm just having a few moments of reality! My dp is so severe at the moment I don't know whether it's the mirtazapine that is causing it! I'm in a constant panic all day feeling really really detatched it's so scary! Normally I lived a normal life with this disorder but I can barely leave house only to go to shop and pick my son up from school. I went cold turkey off mirtazapine (only 7.5mg)in September and my dp got severe I only lasted 6 days cold turkey and I thought if I go back on them it would ease off again but it hasn't. It's literally like living in hell every day for the past few months ( remember I have had derealization for 12 years but I could bear with it) I'm just hoping sertraline will help! I've only been on it 3 weeks. I had such a good morning yesterday for the 1st time in months! I literally feel like im not here...I pray to god this lamotrigine does help me!

Stick with it. Mine got worse after I was adjusting to the meds but I was happy I stuck it out.
The small moments of reality are a good sign you are heading in to the right direction
A tip abi used when recovering was to say to myself, 'ok so this is just a sensation I am experiencing, I'm not diying and Ben though it's uncomfortable it won't hurt me' I kept telling myself that and it helped me get through the rough times
