Depression board


I have been on 50 mg Zoloft and 1.5 mg Klonopin daily for depression and anxiety for 4 months now. A couple months ago, I broke up with my boyfriend of over a year and felt very little sadness (not a bad thing.) But lately every guy I have met, some of them AWESOME guys, I have felt nothing for. No butterflies, no lust. Really, I feel emotionally numb. It's so hard to explain. Is this possibly just because of the bad relationship I ended? Or could it be the drugs? If so which one, the zoloft or Klonopin? I am weening off the Klonopin now, but plan to be on the zoloft for a couple more months. Please help! Thanks!

Tshont, I suspect the problem is caused by one of the drugs you are taking. I am not familar with Klonopin, but I know that I have friends that been on different AD's and said that some of them had affected them that way so they had switched to another because they didn't like that feeling. Calmness is one thing, but no feeling is another. I would talk to your doctor about this, and maybe they can suggest something else for you. Good luck!
