mandypandajoe Posted July 27, 2005 Share Posted July 27, 2005 I'm new here and I'm desperately looking for help. Ok. I was on Zoloft for five months at 50mgs. I was increased to 100mgs. abotu five or six weeks ago. And I slowly became more and more depressed until I was having frantic crying spells, can't eat, can't sleep, when I do pass out I dream of killing myself, I think about killing myself. My therapist said it was some signs of hypomania, but I didn't have anything that would show a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. My doctor dropped the dosage down to 50mgs again, and then I heard my brain squishing around in my head and I stopped about two weeks ago. I think I might be getting a little better, but it's still not gone. My therapist said sometimes antidepressants cause this, but I'm not sure why I still am having problems. The doctor wants me to go back on Zoloft and then going to add bipolar meds to it, even though there's not enough to diagnose bipolar. Does anyone have any helpful comments or have experienced this and can help me. I'm sick of feeling this way. I did have and still do have a diagnois of dysthymic disorder and was abused for seventeen years. I do cycle in that I've gotten to the point where I'm fine for three or four months and then I get depressed for about two weeks. It was getting better and better, I would be depressed for shorter lengths of time and my therapist was fairly certain that I might keep going until they disappeared. I've never had anything like this that has lasted this long since I started therapy, and even when I was in the abuse, I was just depressed, I never felt this bad. What is the problem and what can I do to fix it. Amanda Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
