My son had to stop A Levels when he became ill. He applied to do medicine and whilst feeling so foggy and down, did well in his entrance exams. Quite something.
since then, it was downhill for him. We saw quite a lot psychiatrists, who all had different takes on his condition, although within same field.
Then he tried a load of different ADs...prozac, vanlafaxine, sertraline, mirtazapine, which did nothing.
He continues to have extremely bad intrusive thoughts and music playing in his head on and on and on.
His sleep is horrible. He has such vivid dreams that he wakes up all foggy and dont know where he is, confused between dream and reality. His whole self is changed...no longer cheerful, hardly able to answer simple questions cos he is so far from reality he says,
We have been to cbt, nlp and emdr. You guess it. Did not work.
The doctor says he has resistant form of depression. So Clomipramine has been prescribed 3 weeks now..from 25mg to 50mg to 100mg, since yesterday. He says that his dream was so so strong. He is also given 15mg mirtazapine for sleep and 25mg quetiapine as anti anxiety, as and when he feels he needs. The quetiapine does nothing for him though.
please my son has been under these horrible intrusive thoughts for almost 2 years now. Will clomipramine be his chance to be well?
