I usually keep this personal stuff to myself, but I thought maybe someone might have something positive to say, some help? I have a history of major depression, anxiety sometimes with psychosis; I am currently taking Zoloft 50 mg, Ativan .5 mg as needed. My therapist has stated that I need to go on something like abilifry for delusional thoughts. I have severe intrusive thoughts at times, that crush me. Only on occasion do these occur, and when they do, it's usually severe. I am permenantly disabled due to a neck injury, so I am dealing with all kinds of stress too. I am very scared to go on an antipsychotic drug. I have taken geodon 20mg in the past and it has heavily sedated me. I currently have a 3 year old son who I stay at home with and am his caretaker. I can't afford to be that sedated...I feel like I am stuck between a rock and another rock.. My therapist says I need to trial by error find one that fits for me. Any ideas? Thx for hearing me out! Peace
Definition Delusion: A false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence. My question is; Is it possible to have delusions while hypomanic? Or is it solely a symptom of a manic episode? From what I've researched I could not find anything regarding a hypomanic delusion, only manic delusions and psychosis.
Hello all, I was diagnosed with Dysthymia/Major Depressive Disorder, GAD, and Social Phobia back in September and started on 20 mg of Citalopram in October. I seemed to respond really well to the meds at first, because I had an increase in mood, energy, and lower anxiety levels. In fact, I managed to lose around 25 pounds. I maintained normal sleeping patterns. I would occassionally have a short little episode of dysthymia symptoms but nothing that that lasted too long. The problem lately is that I have formed a romantic obsession with someone I barely know. Obviously, I have insight into the fact that it's a problem, but my obsession borders on delusional (ever heard of erotomania?). I'm extremely dysphoric/anxious/depressed and have been having some suicidal thoughts. I can hardly stand to be in my own skin right now due to the anxiety and obsessive thoughts about this person. I'm feeling a little better today (thank god) and I actually have the attention span to come on here and ask about what's going on. Basically, I just want to know if this is (somewhat) normal or if I need to be evaluated. Does anyone know what the hell is wrong with me? I read that if someone has what they call "delusional disorder" that antidepressants can trigger an episode due to too much dopamine in the brain. Any help out there?
