  1. I had started this heavy headed ness in December 2018..The feeling was like someone tying strong knot around my head and its getting tighter...with NO relief in site....I ddint knw at that time , it was related to depression. So i kept hoping that it will ultimately subside after diet change, sleep patterns etc.. but nothing worked ....After 6 months of this unbearable pain.I visited psychiatrist.In our society and family , visiting psychitrist is taboo, so visit was late...I feel if I started this early, i would have better by now. He has Started off with amixide-h, SSRI...it helped me ...I got recovered to some extent .But not completely. then my doctor advised me to visit another doc at metropolitan area. so i did... he started with having SSRI and betacap 20 ....and increased dosage gradually... I recovered but new monster arose infront of me 'ANHEDONIA/emotional blunting/numbness' ...It was making me disassociated from everyone i am closer and affecting every relations i have.There was no feeling, no interest in activities which i enjoy, ....There was like no feeling of emotions except anger, rage, hate , frustration etc negative one.. Then i talked this to doctor, he changed tab to Dulexetin , buproprien and betacap for this emotional apathy .....This has really helped me in relieving some symptoms of depression ..Anhedonia but remained ... After 4-5 month of treatment , Now i am recovered to the extent but last problem for me remains. In between i tried supplements like MUCUNA pruriens for dopamine, its very effective for me with libido increase, sexual pleasure, but not helped much with anhedonia.

  3. Hi-new member here. I am 59 and was on and off ssris for a number of years for peri-menopause. I am suffering from lingering apathy and anhedonia and it has been a little over two years since my last round with meds. I did not realize this was due to withdrawal. Also suffering from insomnia-this started about a year ago when I upped my normal 2,000 mgs of Vitamin D to 3,000 just to see if I could feel less numb. I felt great until the insomnia hit. Now I take only 250 mgs of Vit D/Calcium/ Vit K as more only interferes with my sleep. Overall my sleep has slowly improved and recently periods of free floating anxiety came hit me from out of the blue. I have restarted on 100 mgs of Magnesium Glycinate which helps me to chill out and also has fluffed up my brain a bit motivation wise. I hope the effects are not short lived as some of the other supplements I have tried. I exercise and meditate but that has had little effect on the motivation, etc. Am seeing a therapist and it has been difficult to get her to understand the amotivational syndrome and that I am not depressed. I am trying to force myself to find pleasurable social activities but it is hard with the low motivation. I also journal daily to recount any pleasurable moments in my day. I have seen some improvement over the years but I just want to feel normal again.
