Depression/anxiety – “unreal” Feeling?

Question by RockNRollUK: Depression/anxiety – “unreal” feeling?
Hey guys,

I suffer from depression/anxiety and I’ve been taking Citalopram for about five weeks now. Sometimes I don’t feel like things are real – for example, I’ll do something and then a second later, it just doesn’t feel like it happened. It’s just like everything is “unreal” around me. It feels awful. I can’t think of any other way to explain it – it’s just the feeling that reality isn’t real or something – everything is unreal.

Anybody else suffered from this? Somebody once told me that it’s your nervous system that does it when suffering from depression with the medication.
