In reply to anxiety does this?, posted by daizy on January 13, 2003, at 12:54:29


I had really similar experiences going off of a different antidepressant. Feeling weird, feeling like stuff looks weird, all of that. I would say it took about a month for it to pass. I needed a lot of support from friends and my therapist and PB at the time.

You are not going mad. Your brain needs to re-set itself to normal without the meds.

There are 2 ways to see it:

1. You are not used to the normal of anxiety you would normally have as the drug masked it.

2. You are feeling more anxiety than you usually would because your brain chemistry is not where it would normally be.

But none of this means that you are going mad.

I hope you can find the best treatment right now. Your doctor may be wrong. It may be best for you to go on another med rather than ride this out right now.
