> Some people on p-babble (such as Zeugma) have reported that psycho-stimulants such as Ritalin and Dexedrine/Adderall have relieved DP/DP. Zeugma does find that Ritalin aggravates his anxiety though, even though it relieves his DP/DP. Not everyone suffers increased anxiety on stimulants though, a few people even find them anxiolytic, especially Dexedrine.

Hi Ed (and Brian),

Yes, Ritalin definitely relieves DP/DR even as it makes me tremble uncontrollably with anxiety. My DP is definitely a perceptual deficit of some kind. The locus of self-perception is in the temporo-parietal junction and Ritalin stimulates that region, while benzodiazepines, antidepressants, and miscellaneous drugs do nothing there. I know my DP is not produced by anxiety as I experience it on its own, just as I know my anxiety is not caused by depression, as I have experienced anxious states in the absence of depression. But I don't doubt you when you say your DP is anxiety-related. I have to say that the DP is at a lower level when my anxiety is controlled. It is more a feeling of bodily numbing and not being completely 'there' which persists, not the full-fledged feeling of 'nothingness' that severe DP produces.
