    Antidepressants won't work.

    Hiya, I've tried three I think different meds for my depression and anxiety over the last year and none worked. First it was low dose citalopram, no effect. Increased dose twice over about six to eight weeks, no effect. Switched to venlafaxine, no effect even with increased doses. Came off them...

    Paranoia - Any advice

    Hi, I've joined this site as my Mother is becoming increasingly paranoyed and any advice I can get to help her would be more than welcome. It started around 8 or 9 years ago when she believed she had fleas from one of our dogs. She would spray herself with all kinds of stuff to try and deter...

    So I've only just started takingMirtazapine after been switched from a different SSRI that wasn't working. Anyway it made me sleep for like 18 hours and I feel really spaced out and groggy. Is this a permanent side effect or does this stop and if so what are the timelines?

    Recently diagnosed with phycotic depression

    Have been put on anti phycotics and do not feel the same anymore. Feel like I've been switched off and not feeling my emotions. Also that I may now be addicted to them. Very confused alone with no one who I can talk to.

    Today I went to meet my mum by train, I'd gone about 15 miles in one direction & she'd come about 100 miles in the other direction to meet in the 'middle' (her train does go faster than mine), anyway I got it in to my head that I'd left the iron on, I couldn't remember the precise moment I...

    Have always taken celexa with success for my anxiety. Except for that dreaded sexual dysfunction side effect :( switched to lexapro hoping it would be less but no luck.

    Haldol side effects

    I am on six different medications at the moment, which I find a lot and it's really driving me to the edge. I think the worst side effects come from the Haldol, so I have Artane against those side effects but the problem is I feel constantly zoned out, I can't move freely I'm really stiff. My...

    I have previously harmed myself many times, I self harmed and tried to kill myself. I have not harmed myself for over a year now... But I can't get this voice out of my head telling me to do it.
