My husband has been depressed since last June. Was in hospital three times and recently diagnosed with psychotic depression. He is on Abilify and clonazepam in the morning, clonazepam in afternoon, and clonazepam and Effexor at night. He doesn't have hallucinations or delusions, just gets confused and says he can't get his brain to work. He 'spaces out' and can't talk and seems lost.
A few times he thought we were still in the past, many years ago. He sees the devil inside his head (they say it's OCD) and he thinks things like he should hurt me or himself but doesn't want to and never acts upon it.
Could it be the meds? He's been on many that only seem to make him worse once he's been on them for like six to eight week periods. I am desperate for help.
