Feeling lack of emotions-Kadwa

Good morning, I've been experiencing lack of / flat emotions/ numbness. It has been close to a year. I do not feel sad, I dont feel much nothing moves me happy or sad..I don't feel excitement.it's scary to be this way.. maybe this is apathy/anhedonia. Prior to this happening I had feel depressed a year ago and on medication but the depression was mild.Inability to enjoy life, inability to form close and fulfilling relationships, disconnection..no feelings inside..
I am well functioning, dont look sad, I have no other complaints, 48 yr old female from the US, any help is appreciated! TY

Hi,
Kadwa has not been on here for some time.

Are you still on low dose Paxil?

You are having “ Emotional Blunting” which
Is a side effect of anti depressant medication.

One has to decide what system to use.
Homeopathy is not going to work right as
A constant antidote to allopathic side effects.
You have to slowly get off Paxil and get the remedy
That matches your state and most likely what matches what
Was going on when you first became depressed.

You have to follow dr instructions about reducing
Paxil and then having none at all. There have been
Numerous people on here in the past, who got off
Anti depressants. When they started getting off it,
They took nux vomica a few times to help flush it out of their system.
But, they did have to put up with some body symptoms
And anxiety while doing it.

After they completed withdrawal, they were given a remedy for
Whatever was left. Homeopathy works, because
It is based on the fact that the body will not tolerate
Two similar states. The body reacts to the correct
Remedy - which is highly diluted as if it is a second
Similar state. The body ups your life force to clear
The remedy. At the same time it is also clearing
The real problem.

Feelings of depression, sadness etc can come up
For some hours and then release for good.

But coming daily is a strange symptom.

Hi Ibrahim,

She is not having “feelings” at all due to Paxil.

I am trying to explain that After not taking Paxil,
Using the right remedy for symptoms at that time-
Old feelings may come up for a short time.

Thank you , Simone.So no remedies can help restore my feelings at least somewhat?

They will not work right because Paxil is actively
Dulling and suppressing - so it is like saying
I want to have a bottle of wine and I want a remedy
That will stop me from being drunk while I drink it.

Simone, I took your advice and got off the paxil.It has been 4 weeks now.I see no improvement in my ability to feel pleasure.


(how I feel inside like I am made of stone)
I've been experiencing lack of / flat emotions/ numbness. It has been close to a year. I dont feel much nothing moves me happy or sad..I don't feel excitement.Inability to enjoy life, inability to form close and fulfilling relationships, disconnection..no feelings inside.. i feel dead on the inside..

Can you recommend any remedies?

Hi,

I would start with nux vomica 200c. Take one dose,
3 pills, in the evening . Observe for a few days
And report. This is to help get Paxil to release
From your body.

Simone, I forgot to ask you if there is a remedy to restore my feelings? Did the paxil lower dopamine levels because my reward system of feeling pleasure on all levels is non existent? ty

Definitely fatigue there are remedies to address what you define as a state where you are not able to feel emotions.

Simone, I thought Nux 6c either alone or in conjunction with sulph. 6c would have done the job. However you are free to go ahead with 200c if you feel so.
