After a significant life event nearly 10 years ago i started having strange episodes. The GP told me it was depression and put me on Fluoxetine which i took for a year or so. My symptoms ( lethargy, walking through treacle, feeling drugged) come and go and i have never had suicidal symptoms. I went back to the doctors recently and he put me on 20mg of Fluoxetine but the side effects were more debilitating than the ' depression' symptoms so after consulting him i stopped taking it. i have just started CBT too. Anyone had similar experiences?
