One year on Pristiq, left two weeks and brain starting blank and I ate again 34 days. At first, I still can feel angry and sad. Now, I am fully numb I don't know what I am going on. I scare that I will lost my IQ forever. Someone tried it before? I am hopeless now.My doctor said that it is depression and anxiety. I don't think so. I think that I have schizophrenia'negative symptoms. Although my doctor said that I am not and he must be cure me. But my symptoms still not go away. He told me wait one week and motivation will get back. Tomorrow is one week. It is very hard for me. I just want laugh and enjoy my life again.

Tough time, hopefully it will pass. Is there someone in your family you trust and would understand? Had experience in mental health?

Definitely trouble the doctor! It's his job, it's what he gets paid for.

More than likely the problem you're having is that there's not enough of a certain chemical in your brain and that shows itself in the form of depression. You won't destroy your life. Mental health problems usually start in young adults and I started feeling depressed at 18, your age. The fact that you're on here reaching out for help is a huge step forward. We're all here to help you. Ask your doctor if you can try a new medicine for schizophrenia, a low dose, and keep us updated.

That's good to know. Did he say anything about a different diagnosis? Or different medicine?
