Hi! Lasik induced depression is very common when the results are bad or when the healing process is very slow and difficult. I experienced that. It`s very difficult. You basically can`t function for a long long time and you start losing patience because the healing progress is so slow. I noticed slight changes for the better around 7 month mark post op! Now it`s 12 months post op and I feel a little better. Patience, patience, patience... You need to search for different drops and remedies to help the healing, and time is the best remedy. The most important thing to remember, no matter how bad the situation is, is that over time things should get better. In the mean time try to stay calm, and always hope for the best.
Hi! Your experience is familiar. All of that after bad Lasik, right? Celexa, trazadone... I`ve been through all of that. Unable to sleep, depressed, etc. Never had any success with antidepressants though, hated them! Never tried trazadone, probably should have. I was using Ambien, but that stuff will make you really crazy after several months of nightly use. And finally overdosed on Zoloft, just out of despair after 6 months of hell of depression and not being able to sleep. Hurt my stomach, gallbladder, it`s been 6 months since then and it still hurts. Well, it should get better over time, just hanging in there! Find yourself good eye drops, that may help with the eye healing. Sleep should return, so as depression will go away once the eyes start feeling better, give it about 7 months or so.
