I was on antidepressants for years and at first, I felt numb. But after a while, the numbness went away. I still felt emotions and even still got depressed at times. It was just not as bad. And it helped me come out of the depressive moods more easily and I had them less.

Emotion numb can make someone think less?

Hm. The numbness lasted about 3 weeks. Basically just as it's getting into your system

Medication doesn't work for everyone. And the same medications don't work for everyone. I know a lot of people for whom meds did not work. They just happened to be the right fit for me. You need to talk to your doctor. Even something else you are taking could effect it

Maybe it is good for me, I am extremely fear I will get schizophrenia.My doctor said that I am not. I hope that I will get better few days later.
It worked on me one year ago, I believe that it can also work this time.
