To all Antidepressants give you a foggy / numb head?

Hello

Have been on mirtazapine for 4 months which didn't agree and am due to start Dosulepin tonight - ahh shock.

Do all antidepressants give your brain that numb / foggy feeling / can't think straight (not dizzy but a bit out of it)! I'm sure you have a better description! I seem to fight it thinking its just me.

I have a fuzzy head which Dr says is anxiety and think that the ones I have been on make it worse!

Can't take citalopram and Dr says probably all SSRI's will have same reaction for me.

Thank You for your time.

ahhh yes i remeber this from my citalopram.
Not nice, but apparently it does get better with time. It did for me, but then came back as i weened off them.

Thank you, think i'm going to have double wammy as having withdrawal from mirtazapine.

Venflaxine - does that help with sleep / anxiety?

Escitalopram = no fuzzy head

That was supposed to be Escitalopram.
