> Where do you think this comes from? Mild brain damage? The brain seeking a stimulus that is now gone?

That was actually my concern..and i'm still worried about it today...It seems my brain is way to dependent on the meds because everytime I go off them..even if it's enough time for my brain to fully recover from the withdrawal this "blank" feeling seemingly persists...

I don't remember ever being like this...The initial reason I came off the meds in the first place was because I was having trouble with concentration and slow thought procces..when I come off them though my mind seems to operate much slower then on the meds..My main problem seems to be slow thinking..everything seems the same except for the fact that it takes me substantially longer to do anything...answer people in conversations...complete homework....problem solving...My brain is just going much slower ever since i've been on these meds...Most people will say it's depression but I have NEVER felt this way when I was depressed prior to taken the meds....

I'm glad you say the blank feeling resolves it self after you're done with the taper and everything...because it didn't for me..Maybe i needed more time off the med i dunno..

I'd say you're symptoms were worse after you've come off a med because you were use to confronting the situation with ease due to the meds making things easier...contrary to how you feel off the's just that sudden change ur not use to i guess..and it's just much worse in comparison Could be something else I dunno..Many people say they feel things more intensely in general when they come off.
