Update

Its been over a month since i posted. Started on Rexulti and still take xanax .50 2x a day. Still overwhelmed with intrusive philosophical thoughts. Like when i think about eternity or what our true purpose is or afterlife and not existing anymore. Also if life is all in my head. Have been able to leave house everyday and just recently started driving but I have to have someone with me. Reading a book on how to stop intrusive thoughts so i hope that helps. And actually it mentioned intrusive philioshical thoughts and meaning of life thoughts in the book so thats good to know im not the only one😂 trying to be more activr and eat healthier and lost and 5 pounds the last week and a half so far

I found that Zoloft works very well for those thoughts such as life not having any purpose, feeling down, ect. I’m on 100 mg currently. I was on Buspar before but it didn’t work

For me the Zoloft helps all those negative thoughts disappear. I’ve never felt so good in my entire life. I’m now on week 6 and I’m pretty much symptom free except for at work which causes me stress all the time.
