Wow, you guys. I've had the dream-like stuff from the beginning of this LOOOOOOONG episode (three years of traumatic treatment resistivity...finally, relieved with much improvement). I still have "the fog". But, I thought that it was just depression-related.

BTW, I told my pdoc about the brain fog. He said that the term was not the scientific one. But, he didn't have a scientific term available. ???Maybe, he has brain fog, too??? hee, hee, hee

Some literature says that the "dream-like" state is a psychotic feature. It may be associated with either schitzophrenia or bipolar psychosis. Other resources qualify this fog as related to other conditions. So, I'm not really sure what to do to "air out" this fog.

This Must Be London???

> Things outside the head seeming dream-like doesn't sound so wierd to me. When I was taking Serzone I felt that way all the time! It was if I was inside a cacoon and everthing outside was somehow distant. When feeling this way I would often be reminded of a phrase from an old Beatles song, Penny Lane, "She feels as if she is in a play, and she is anyway". The more Serzone I took, the worse it got. I presume the feeling is due to an excess of seretonin at certain receptor sites. I've read of others having similar feelings when on SSRIs.
