My son (student, 20 years old) was diagnosed with severe depression in January.
His doctor prescribed him cipralex a month later. He started from 5 mg, looked like it helped a little, he said that his anxiety
became better and he didn't look so sad
. However, when he was prescribed 10 mg and then 15, he started to act like a crazy person. He talks too fast, thinks too fast, forgetting the subject he is talking about, screams on people without a reason.
Also he started to work on some scientific idea, which to his opinion will completely change the existing physics and mathematics principles, and, as a result, the whole world. He is very obsessive with his idea and cannot discuss/think about anything else. Eats very little, doesn't sleep at nights, looks restless and still depressed. When he meets the doctor, he just says that he is OK, because the doctor may think that he is crazy.
My son never experienced anything like that, is it related to cipralex and what can be done? I am really scared.
