That's pretty much how I feel on Dramamine, Benadryl, Phenergan and worst of all, Desyrel. I have never tried anti-psychotics but somehow they don't sound too tempting.

> > I've been told it feels like a very strong antihistamine. That would make me think it does indeed dull the senses because even something as benign as Benadryl does. But I have not tried it and you have, so perhaps you're correct. Still I don't think it would be good for dysthymia, especially combined with Prozac and even more especially if Prozac has not worked in the past.

> I thought Zyprexa felt like a really strong antihistamine. 2.5mg knocked me right out (it was a danger to drive home...I was not even warned to take it at night). I took another dose the next day despite how bad it made me feel. The third day, I took no more, but I was paralyzed with fatigue for about three days after that...just couldn't function whatsoever.

> to tell you the truth, I can't tell the difference between antipsychotics, tricyclics and plain old antihistamines...they all feel the same...I pass out for 24-48 hrs, then suffer fatigued insomnia: all I can do is lie there, but I can no longer sleep...just lie there immobilized. If i stay on them for more than a few days, I get relly bad restless legs...it feels like someone has injected itching powder deep into the muscles, and it's excrutiatingly itchy and uncomfortable not to wiggle, kick and writhe.
