Hi Ed,

It seems to affect me so differently to how it affected me when I first ever took it. After my last so called episode (I'm not even sure that's what it was as it's still going on) I took 20mg of it expecting to react the same but the 20mg made me feel awful. Every antidepressant I tried after that at a low dose made me feel awful, extreme anxiety and loss of concentration. I went on like that for 2 years, with Zyprexa now and again to help. Then it wasn't until a psychiatrist put me straight on 40mg that I responded.

I definately feel better on 40mg of Seroxat than I do off it but there is something different about the way I feel now on in, I can't explain. Maybe it's the fact that for the first time ever I felt suicidal when I was 35. There is still a part of me that feels suicidal. Just thinking of how bad I can feel off drugs makes me feel like killing myself.

I'm so grateful for the medication but I'm not grateful for the fact that I seem to need it so much.


Denise
