ShakeyJerr posted a topic in Symptoms and self-careYou know that crying we all get that has nothing to do with depression? They tears that well up uncontrollably as we recover from the effects of these insidious psychotropic meds we all took? Well, it has a name: pseudobulbar affect. And of course, it already has an approved drug to help mask it. Because big pharma is more than happy to take advantage of what there other drugs did to us. I'm in too much of a crying bout right now to write more about this. Do some googling. But don't let what you read lead you to thinking you should take any medication to cope with this. As we have all learned, powerful brain chemistry altering drugs is not the answer. SJ
Did anybody else have that symptom? I noticed that my memory is a lot stronger now (been off of fluoxetine for a year, so my symptoms are improving). I also noticed that while I was on the medication, my short-term memory wasn't too great. My memory was even worse while/after withdrawing.
