I'm not sure what you mean Mike, do you mean you're not eating whilst on antidepressants and also cannot concentrate?
Or do you mean you've stopped taking antidepressants and now can no longer concentrate?

Hi Mike, Just read your posts in your other thread in the Schizophrenia forum.
If you doctor says you are not schizophrenic and you aren't really showing symptoms of that illness, then it is probably unlikely you have this illness.
We can't diagnose you on the forum, can you speak to your doctor about the possibility of antidepressant withdrawal? Your lack of concentration is much more likely due to that.

Be very careful when you stop taking antidepressants. You will 100 percent percent feel like a zombie, no motivation, no positive meaning in anything etc for weeks. That is until you start taking another antidepressant drug that can start improving your brain chemistry

Hi

If you quit the antidepressant abruptly, your brain will be in a shock. So it’ll cause serious withdrawal effects. Please google “antidepressant withdrawals”. Lack of concentration doesn’t suggest schizophrenia.

Once you restart the same antidepressant, withdrawal symptoms will disappear.

But please be careful. It may not go like that as it happened on me.

If you have uncomfortable side effects from the same med you’ve been on it, please contact your doc ASAP.
