> I was just pondering about my de-realization bouts that I get every now and then, which I considered part of my GAD (my feeling of not being "there", of floating above myself or about to faint).It often happens in stores with a myriad of fluoresecent lights.
> Since the only med that has worked for me is Klonopin, which is prescribed for seizures too, maybe it works cuz I AM having mini-seizures or seizure-like brain excitablity??? Does that relate to the constant anxiety that is GAD??Anyone have any theories out there?

Yes, I believe derealization and/or depersonalization syndromes are subsyndromal epilepsy....the problem is they are created from functional and not structural problems in the brain, and hence not observable by modern brain imaging techniques.

However one with these conditions should definately get a sleep deprived EEG, to rule out full blown TLE.

I have much more to say on this issue, but i gotta get home!!

BTW, Nardil works great from general anxiety AND depersonalization/derealisation!
