  • 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.
