    Why does Sertraline zombify me?

    My brief period (6 months) on Sertraline has been that it sapped my creativity and basically made me not want to do anything, not feel anything. I just sit at the computer and watch videos and occasionally walk around, or eat, or go to the bathroom. I just don't have any drive to really do very...

    Sertraline is making me "numb" and indifferent.

    Hi guys, I am suffering from Dystymia and SAD and have been taking Sertraline 50 - 75mg for over a year now. It helps with psychosomatic ailments and moderately attenuates the anxiety & fear. My problem with Sertraline is: It makes me an apathetic zombie, indifferent to life and very...

    Quetiapine Woes

    I went up from 550 mg quetiapine to 600 mg, which helped me fall asleep a bit easier and took the edge off my stress at work, but then I felt like a frickin zombie all day. Went down to 550 mg, and then to 500 mg, and now, instead of being dopey all day my anxiety is increasing, and I self...

    Is there a medication?

    That you could take loads of that would make you not notice/feel things so much? I have this theory that the less intelligent you are possibly some things in life are slightly easier, the lack of knowledge about things means you are blissfully unaware! Are there medications that knock you out so...
