When I came off my 1/4 pristiq I starting to be a zombie. So I ate back. Today is five weeks on it and added zoloft since 28th.my brain is empty, emotions numb. And nothing want to do. Is that normal? I scare that I will develop Intellectual disability. Someome experience the same? I am just 18....

I lost two years to Sodium Valproate, left me a zombie just watching T.V without being all that aware of what I was even watching. If something is making you feel like a zombie; that is not how it is meant to be. You should bring this up with your psychiatrist. Being a zombie is not a good quality of life outcome. Sadly medications are a gamble and you may have to keep gambling to find the right one. I hope you can find what you are looking for.

But it worked on me last year. I came off it then become a zombie. I am taking it again. Hope it will prove later
