Carrie Ann Inaba once hallucinated and thought she was stabbing herself after taking antidepressants.

The 'Dancing With the Stars' judge was taking medication to get her through a difficult time in her life but experienced some unusual side effects.

Speaking on 'The Talk', she recalled: ''There was a time, a few years ago when my father died, four days before 'Dancing with the Stars' started, and I went through a whole bunch of problems.

''I moved and my fiancé and I broke up, and I had to go on antidepressants.

''You can't judge people for being on meds because it's very personal and you have to make the choice that is right for you.

''I want to share something, when I took the med it caused me to have this weird hallucination of me stabbing myself over and over again.

''I was lucky that I was healthy enough and had a good support system that I could say, 'What is this? It doesn't feel like me.' ''

The 50-year-old star worked with her doctors to find a new medication that worked for her.

She continued: ''Then I changed the meds; I was on them for three months. They helped me find a new homeostasis and remember what it felt like to feel good... for me it was very helpful, even though I had some struggles.''

Last year, Carrie Ann opened up about being sexually assaulted by her martial arts teacher and admitted she felt ''great'' about the fact she confided in a friend immediately afterwards.

She said: ''Something happened to me when I was studying martial arts with the person training me. He did something inappropriate and pulled down my pants. I froze.

''Because I froze, I felt guilty. I felt guilty, but what was so great is that night I went home and I said, 'I'm going to tell somebody because I didn't do anything.'

''They actually told me to wear baggy clothes, nothing sexual, and I did. I was wearing a sweatshirt and the baggiest pants I could find.

''I knew maybe something in there told me it wasn't my fault that it had happened. I told my friend and he said, 'What are we going to do about it?' Because of that, I walked away from that with no shame.

''I still have emotions about it, but I didn't feel shame for me. If I didn't, I would probably still be living with that kind of shame inside of me.''
