    Can't cry

    I feel kinda bad right now. I don't know why.. I don't feel as depressed as I have before. But I feel like I really need to cry. And I can't cry. It's really frustrating. I started taking Prozac a few weeks ago and I don't know if that has something to do with me not being able to cry. I really need to cry!

    Antidepressents can make it so it's difficult or impossible to cry. Talk to your doctor about trying a different one.

    Re: Can't cry

    oh i'm sorry, i know that feeling so well, you feel tense and ready to burst.. for me it was sort of the opposite though.. i hadn't cried for literally years when i was very depressed, but now that i found the right medication i've regained that ability.. pretty weird, i don't know how that worked.. but i do agree with unicorn430, definitely talk to your doctor, because it is important in my opinion. good luck..

    ps. maybe for now, you could try to substitute with something else somewhat satisfying? i know it's not the same but exercising to the point that you are just dead tired can sometimes make you forget at least temporarily.. or doing art of some kind.. that has helped me in the past, to get feelings out in a different way.

    Re: Can't cry

    I wish I could cry also. I've never been a crier. I hold it back to the point that I get a headache. There are times when I do want to cry though but it just won't come out no matter how hard I try. I'm on Paxil and was told by my pdoc that it can stop people from crying so it might just be your meds. You might want to talk to your doctor about it.

    Re: Can't cry

    when i was on prozac i cried ALL the time!!! im still on it and occasionally ill sniffle but i know how irritating it is when u want to cry but cant. altho it COULD be the meds, it reacts differently with every person. if this is really effecting u, go and see ur doc and ask if it could be the prozac affecting u like this

    Good luck and take care
