I've tried many medicines for years and every time I give up. I've tried many for depression and anxiety but the one that worked the most was fluoxetine (prozac). But all of these medicines including the ones that didn't work ended up making my thoughts go haywire and crazy in a couple of days. It really scares me when that happens. It feels like I will become permanently crazy and scarred and I give up the medicines.

All the therapists I've seen have said that they have never heard of any thing like this. So is any one there who faces such things?

I've been prescribed Prozac and Zoloft. I never took one of the Prozac pills, and I didn't take the Zoloft long enough to know if it made me disoriented or not.

mikanike23, you're the first person besides myself who has said they had similar side-effects with medicines.

I would feel like my mind would go out of my control and work on its own, thinking up visuals of people crowding around me and talking to me from the air (yeah sounds crazy and I don't think it was hallucination, because I was aware that my mind was thinking them up).

Can't take medicines because of that. Prozac worked great for me otherwise :/

Yes, they're out of the question for me now. They're just strong drugs, with the exception that they are prescribed legally.

I was on antidepressives/anti anxiety (Cipramil) for 1 year. I didnīt like it. Felt strange and unreal. Donīt ever want to do that again.

Most medicines I've tried have had no effect except for bad side effects. But I think I am noticing a reduction in anxiety on 60mg of Celexa.

I think this is pretty much it. Being legal doesn't make them any different.

I'm on Celexa 40mgs, I have been on it for 2yrs. The first few days are tough, you feel or at least I did, kind of stoned. Also I was nervous about side effects and I think that made matters worse. But after a while that subsided. After about 6months of steady taking it I noticed an improvement. Fast forward to a year I was doing much better.
You can't give up to easily while on medication. I haven't had a problem or side effects with the Celexa except when I first started taking it. I'm very thankful my psychiatrist on the first try picked a drug that has helped. I know not everyone gets so lucky. You also can't let yourself get freaked out reading about side effects and worrying etc. You just have to let the meds do it's job.

If it is the right medication it will neither make you feel crazy nor nervous. You will fee so called, "in you normal/comfortable state of mind.".
