I have had depression for a number of years and usually manage but a few things changed in my personal life about a year ago that shook me a bit more than usual.
Was at my wits end and after trying exercising, cutting down alcohol, reading self help books, meditation, i decided to go the anti depression route.
Have kept up all of the above, but stuggling really bad. I am definately more level headed on the meds, but everyday i feel like i loose a little bit more of myself.
Today felt like a was in a dream world and not in a real world (if that makes sense). Looked in the mirror and hardly recognised myself
Started meds and felt a quite high for first few days, then a little sick, but seemed to level out. But last 3/4 weeks just feel nearly dead and disconnected from my own self and life.
The wife has also told me she feel that she has lost me to depression and that i am no longer the same person.
Thinking about stopping the meds as at least without them i was myself, a stuggling self but still me.
Has anyone else had this on Fluoxetine. I have been holding on as everyone says takes time to level out on these. But 70 days in on 20mg i really was hoping for relief.
What is is like coming off these things, is it ok just to stop?
