Depression from medication withdrawal?


I'm wondering if it's possible a medication I was on 3 years and 8-9 months and have been off for six months could be producing depression as a withdrawal effect? Or perhaps, my healthier eating is undoing some of its (flupenthixol) lingering antidepressant effect and causing depression that way? I ask because I've heard it can take 6-24 months for emotions to return to normal after some psychiatric medications and I feel this is at least part of the cause for my emotional pain.

Depression is uncommon / rare for me in general and I still can't feel the full range of emotions after being off this drug for just over 6 months.

Thanks in advance,

Andy 🙏

I think it is probably possible. Can you speak to whomever was prescribing it to find out? It can definitely take a while for things to sort of recalibrate.

Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.

You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

Perhaps speak to your shrink or prescribing doctor.

Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.
