I suffer from social anxiety as well. This is why I kept taking antidepressants, hoping that one would improve my SA (they did but i was anxious and worried instead about how unreal the world looks!!) and dp or at least doesn't worsen it. on them, it was like my soul was taken high up the sky and I'm just watching from above. How would I not be anxious about this? Now realized it's not worth it.To me also the ssri do me badly. I realized after years of taking them.
I am taking a very low dose of duloxetine, it will be 15 mg, if I increase the dose it makes me feel worse.
I suffer from social anxiety and also bupropion greatly increased my anxiety.
May I know how long you've been on duloxetine? will you continue be on it? what are the effects? Also, does it numb you and affects your sex drive?
