I saw my psychiatric doctor this morning and met with the entire team. My mum attended the appointment and explained that I have symptoms of withdrawal from social situations and feel incredibly depressed.
I have been trying to convince my psychiatric doctor that I need antidepressants because I do not feel 'normal'. We shared a brief joke about the word 'normal' and concluded that I don't feel 'usual'. I mentioned that I have never felt 'usual' and that I don't exactly know what 'usual' feels like.
In the end, my psychiatric doctor prescribed me Sertraline in addition to my regular Risperidone.
I just wondered whether anyone has taken the antidepressant Sertraline and whether or not it made much difference. I also wondered what effects it has on mood.
Essentially I want to know how I will feel when I obtain my prescription from the pharmacist and take those tablets for two months or so.
