I can't cry on meds

Is this happening to anyone else? I’m on Olanzapine and Cipralex. I wish I could have a good cry right now but I can’t.

Yes, I find it very difficult to cry…whether it’s the meds or the sz I don’t know.

I can’t either I finally miss it too it’s been a really long time now. I thought it was blunted affect but maybe it’s the meds

My brother’s dog died and we live together, and I couldn’t really cry when I wanted to then, I forced it out eventually but the medicine was making it very hard.

It’s bad sometimes life throws a touching story your way - I had a moment with my dentist and we shared stories and his(thank goodness) made something in my eye get reflective he made such a warm smile when it went down like that … you need moments like that you know? He just retired too, he was my dentist for like 35 years.

Listen to sad songs maybe or songs you listened to when you were desperate etc Listening to songs I used to listen while psychotic makes me have some tears.

I can rarely cry but have an unfortunate problem crying at inappropriate times which can be quite embarrassing

I cry some on meds. When I was in the hospital I cried at least 3 times Idk what got into me. But it was probably whatever got me into the hospital

I’ve been listening to sad songs and I still can’t cry. I’ve also been thinking of how I might be homeless soon and even that isn’t making me cry. Fu-ck!!!

I can’t cry, either. I might get one or two tears out, but that’s it. And it sucks because sometimes you need a good cry.

@ZombieMombie - I agree, I think its healthy to let out a good cry every once in a while.

Yeah, it is good to cry at time. I wish I could.

I barely cried when my mother died. And I was devastated. It just wouldn’t really come out as tears.
