      Anhedonia and lack of emotions can be negative symptoms of the illness. So it might not be caused by the medication. The only way to know for sure is to stop taking medication but you might not want to do that.

      Thanks for the responses I really appreciate it and find it so useful. In the case of wanting to be right...I don't want to win or just be "right". It's not the battle in my eyes, it's that I don't want to be painted a different color. My heart is in the right place and I care deeply about...

      Hi everyone, this is my first post. Forgive any rambling or the history, but I thought it might help to describe. This is long. :( Before a few months ago, I didn't really know anxiety or stress to this degree. I'd had some moments, sure, but no attacks or obvious symptoms like I am getting now....

      I am so sorry you are going through this. I think that if he won't talk to a counselor, it would greatly benefit you to see one on your own to help you deal with these behaviors. It will make you a stronger person and you will feel better about everything. I hope things look up soon. You can be...

      I talked to my doctor she said i should wait at least another week and see how i feel. i've only been on 100mg for 10 days so i'd say i might just have to be patient and wait for my body to adjust to the new dose.

      I strongly suggest that you talk with your doctor about this and maybe have a medication review. Don't just do it yourself. It takes time to come off higher doses and sometimes you have to be titrated off psych meds. I don't Know about Zoloft - I am not an expert on any of these medications...

      I did talk to my sister over Christmas about how I felt and she is with me but thinks we should wait and see if things calm down first before making a decision. The main thing would be finding a place where I could afford rent. I could stay with my sister for awhile but not long term.
