  1. Hi, Still taking the Zoloft... the severe depression did eventually fade although I still sometimes experience waves of despair. It does help with the anxiety so that's a bonus. I sometimes feel a bit better and happy but I've come to realize I'm intolerant to certain foods. Probably no wonder it's taking so long for me to start feeling better. But the Zoloft definitely helps. It takes the edge off so to speak and makes things more controllable. Best regards Ken
  2. I only have deja vus when I either start or come off antidepressants so I know they are caused by them. But the psychiatrist told me it's probably because the meds need to get used to. Depersonalisation is not a big problem for me when I'm off the meds, however it's tolerable as long as the medication is really going to kick in. I know I have gut dysbiosis so I'll keep approaching my anxiety on a dietary level as well. All the best to you guys
  3. Hi, Currently 50 mg. It's a bit better now but I'm getting deja vus sometimes. Everything seems so odd at times. Could depersonalisation be a side effect or is it just a matter of getting used to the meds? Thanks

    Hypnosis

    I sometimes listen to hypnosis sessions on youtube before I go to bed. It will help you sleep deeper and is definitely worth looking in to. It's supposed to change your subconcious mind, although you shouldn't expect a miracle, it will definitely help you relax in the moment, and if you do it quite often, could help in the long run... Not sure about professional hypno therapy, but I can imagine that if it's done right, it should pay off. The thing I really like about hypnosis is that it directly adresses the subconcious mind, which could be feeding the anxiety and probably is in a lot of cases. They say that the subconcious mind outnumbers the concious mind 9 to 1. So most of the stuff you do and feel happens without you even knowing it. If that makes sense. Regards
  5. Hi, I've been having GAD (agoraphobia, social phobia and panic) for a couple of years now. I've been on and off medication and never came across something that actually makes me feel good, something mood-lifting (except for benzo's). But some medications do help with the anxiety and coming off them only makes the anxiety come back, unfortunately. Right now I've been taking zoloft (for a couple of days) and I feel that I am getting depressed on this particular medication. I'm seeing a psychiatrist in about a week and I'm not sure what to do in the meantime. I could probably use counseling but I'm afraid of experiencing panic again, especially in the presence of strangers, even doctors. I still have cipralex and temesta from previous prescriptions and think that I would probably do better on the cipralex, although it might just need time. I'd really like the doc to just prescribe me something to take away the physical symptoms first before starting talk therapy but I'm not sure if I should ask or just see it through regardless of symptoms. Please advise. Thank you! Ken
