Does anyone have depersonalization with depression and anxiety. With every bout of depression I have had and there have been many I always have this feeling of depersonalization/derealization. I have been symptom free for 10 years, thank God. But for the last 7 weeks I have had it. I went to my psychiatrist and she upped my paxil to 40 mg. and also put me on buspar, and klonapin plus depakote. I desperately need to know if anyone out there suffers from constant depersonaliziation with depression and anxiety. Thanks, and God bless.

Re: Help

the medication you mentioned makes me feel that way. I think most anti-depressants just kind of numb us from the real world. I for one would rather feel this way than to be depressed. Depression is way more painful than anything else.

Re: Help

I have been on all of these combined medicines before and they never did make me feel like that. The depression causes the symptoms of depersonalization for me. Not the medicine. Last time the meds are what got rid of these feelings.

Re: Help

For me, depression is a more acceptable way to make me aware. The drugs took away all emotion other than increasing anxiety and what I can only describe as madness because I no longer could recognize myself, my personality, my responses, my temperment.
At least depression is a recognizable part of me. And, like an unwelcome visitor, always departs, eventually, on it's own.
