Have any of you ever, while unmedicated... ?

Just wondering if anyone else has done anything regretful while off your medication? If I forget to take my medication for more than a couple days, it seems like my "common sense filter" doesn't work. I often will say things I normally would think but not say out loud. Then my mouth gets me in lots of trouble with my family, friends, coworkers, etc., and I end up looking like a jerk.

I feel like that's "not really me" saying those things. Can anyone else relate?

Hello OakChamp.

I haven't abruptely gone off my medication before but I've tried to reduce my dosage. When I tried this my depressive symptoms returned, one of which is withdrawing from talking to people. I don't think I said anything mean to people but rather I lost interest in people and ignored them. I suppose this could indirectly come across as being a jerk.

Oh, yeah, I've done the whole "withdrawing from society" thing, too. I'll try to avoid social occasions at all costs, like company parties, birthday parties, etc. Or I'll just try to avoid talking to certain people.

Other times, I'll just be angry at everybody. The smallest thing will just tick me off. I have different moods every time I'm unmedicated. Weird...

Yes,I can completely relate.My daughter who is 14 is also on meds (prozac) and if she misses a few days she becomes aggressive and moody.

Myself,I get agitated and impatient.What might normally not seem like a big deal,suddenly stresses me to no end.I snap at people easier and it's just like I cannot control it.

The times I've come off of medication or weaned from it,I basically cannot function and shut myself away from people for a while.
