I have never had a psychotic episode but was prescribed an SSRI for depression.
Initially it did help with the depression but it caused insomnia and a feeling that I was in a fog, that I found unpleasant.
As my situation had changed, I chose to simply stop the drugs (against my doctor's advice). I found that I was able to manage my depression without
medication and had no adverse effects. The drug did not seem to "re-wire" my brain but merely provided some respite so that I could sort myself
Your symptoms are different from mine, you appear to be suffering from Paranoia. Here's a link to a site that explains it:
Paranoid Personality Disorder: Drugs and
From that site you will notice that SSRI's are one of the many drugs given to try and help sufferers.
You must realize that the nature of the ailment will make you distrust others. But the truth is that there are many out there who are caring, trained
and professional. These people can help you.
The condition of being distrustful is self-reinforcing and will damage relationships with those who care about you.
In all cases, you are the person who has the most power over your condition. You can acknowledge that your feelings of distrust may be just feelings,
with no real substance, and choose to work to get things under control. To do this you must begin to trust by effort of will.
Please seek out someone who is a good person to trust. Someone who is qualified like a doctor, counselor or psychologist. If they prescribe drugs as a
solution, think rationally, putting aside the emotions and feelings, and consider why they may be suggesting them.
Take heart, be courageous and do what must be done to improve your life.
