I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and since he has a history of drug abuse, the shrink would only use anti-depressants to treat this. SWIM kept complaining that he didn't like how they made him feel. The unpleasant feelings were hard to explain, but were sort of similar to psilocibin or LSD "coming up" discomfort. Has anyone here observed strange feelings from lexapro, zoloft, effexor, or other anti-depressants such as the discomfort one experiences from "coming up" on a hallucinogen? That's the only way SWIM can describe it. I am concerned because his old symptoms are returning and he feels that he needs to seek treatment. The shrink looked at SWIM like he was crazy when he complained of these unpleasant feelings. I am not so sure if he is willing to try any more ADs as in his previous experience they kept switching him from one to another, but each produced the same side effects for him. The shrink suggested that maybe I am hyper sensitive to them.
