My reaction to antidepressants (any SSRI) deviates from the expected reaction. I feel an antidepressant effect within hours of taking the antidepressant (and not weeks). However, it comes with a feeling I don't tolerate. I would describe this feeling as a kind of emotional numbness, but it is really difficult to express in words what I am actually feeling. Obviously I went to several doctors, but they have difficulties with my situation,as it does not match a typtical reaction to antidepressants.Has anyone ever had a similar reaction to antidepressants or does anyone (partly) recognize my description? I would love to find people in a similar situation or find more information about my condition.
