    I never felt depersonalization while taking it but when I tried to stop I had horrendous depersonalization that I never experienced. All the symptoms you describe, mental confusion and fog, feeling detached, problems with concentrating.

      I've had this for long time before starting venlafaxine, sertraline did nothing for me I'm hoping venlafaxine will help because it does something to the norepinephrine which helps calm the fight or flight

      How long have you had depersonalization hilda? Unfortunately depersonalization is a symptom of anxiety, your brain has been put on safe mode from all the anxiety and worrying thoughts and constantly checking in on yourself.

    It is a symptom of anxiety but it can be caused from side effects and/or withdrawal from anti depressants. In my case I never experienced it in my life until I tried to stop taking it.

      Yeah after the first 6-7 weeks the side effects mostly went away. I was just left with low libido, slight eye pain, grinding teeth and sweating.

      I've had it for 12 years but my citalopram pooped out last October and my depersonalisation got very severe to the point where I didn't recognise my family, I felt like an alien that has just landed on planet earth. Normally I could cope with my depersonalisation it was just a vision thing with me (everything felt flat, lifeless, dreamy) but by hell I think I had a nervous breakdown last October and that's when it got soooo bad! It was bloody scary, like I was gonna get lost in my mind and end up in some weird matrix. It has got a lot better and a pyschartrist said it's because of my childhood trauma and I need to be on venlafaxine so hopefully it might help, its only been 2 weeks.
