  • Anyone had creativity/productivity issues while take metoprolol?

    Anyone have any creativity/productivity issues while taking the beta blocker metoprolol? I Would love to corroborate my experiences with other creatives. Ever since I started three months ago, my ability to write has gotten so bad, it feels like I'm wading through mud to try and write anything, or follow inspired plot lines etc. This is effecting my livelihood. There is no evidence that this is a known side effect that I can find - but I'm hoping I'm not just crazy. Thanks in advance.
  • Has anyone "lost their creativity" on antidepressants?

    I am an avid, DAILY writer of fiction. It's almost an obsession but for me it is a healthy one because anyone who has known me long enough can tell you the pattern, when I am writing, I am generally happy. When I stop, I go downhill. When I start again, I get better almost immediately. It helps me to get out of my own head and world and problems and into someone else's.

    But since I have started a series of antidepressants over the past few months, I NEVER write. I think twice in January, three times in February and not once in March or April--and never even a full page. I strated with a tricyclic, followed by two others, Remeron, now Cymbalta. Does anyone have any such experiences as this? Losing creativity on a variety of antidepressants? It's like I can't even break into my fictional world anymore when I used to reside there half my life to escape being alone in my own head all the time.
