    Feeling a bit paranoid at times

    I just stated taking Celexa's and Abilify it will be two weeks Tuesday. I always give meds a full 30 days, or longer so hopefully things get better. I don't have racing thoughts anymore but feel a bit dull.

    I'm almost sure the 'dull' feeling is from the Abilify. I took it for a while and it also stopped the racing thoughts for me. I hope you have good insurance because it is one of the most expensive of the mental health drugs. I took it for about a year and a half but only because my pdoc gave me samples. When he ran out, I was done. I do not remember ANY withdrawl symptoms from suddenly stopping the med.

    I tried Celexa but it didn't work at all for me.

    I hope you get along well with your meds. Isn't it a shame that we depressed people feel bad enough already but then have to experiment with all kinds of drugs and combinations to get any relief from depression!

    I'm happy for you. I wish I could get rid of my paranoid feelings. I heard people in the basement again this morning. It's kind of scary sometimes.

    Mary could you understand audible voices in your basement and what exactly they were saying? I spent time in a basement this week due to an f4 tornado in my neighborhood in AL.

    This is what I have heard in the basement when I am upstairs and alone:

    Doors being closed.
    My name.
    A voice saying "be quite, she's still here"
    The outside door being opened and closed.
    Foot steps coming up the stairs and then quickly going back down the stairs.
