    Hanna72: I will be free

    Oh, Reykjavik, I used to dream of going there, very much. I Still am, in an other time... thank you so much for your words. I got tears in my eyes. so good that you have found out some food that works! I really think that is so importent. I don’t know if you have nettles growing? we have a lot, I Will try to use nettles in my food more often. So much good stuff in them. I also went to have acupuncture the other day. He was very understanding when I explained everything. I don’t think it could do any harm at least. It felt quite good. Hoping you have a better day today! Thinking of you from Sweden. with Love, Ronja

    Mimetz16: Tapering question

    Hi Mimetz and welcome SA. It's really good that you found SA because skipping days to taper is not recommended. Please see: never-skip-doses-to-taper Have you noticed any withdrawal symptoms during your taper? How are you feeling now? Are you sleeping okay? We need some more details about your drug/s, doses and how you made your reductions. Please continue to take your current dose at about the same time on a daily basis until we have the information about your taper. Please create your drug signature which will allow us to see your drug history at a glance. Please keep it simple. This topic explains what we need. please-summarize-your-withdrawal-history-in-your-signature This link will take you straight to your signature. Remember to Save once you have completed it. Account Settings – Create or Edit a signature Once we have more information on how you tapered and how long you took to reduce to 10mg of Paxil we will be able to suggest when it would be okay for you to make another reduction. I will provide some information below that you can read. SA recommends tapering by no more than 10% of the current dose followed by a hold of about 4 weeks to allow the brain to adapt to not getting as much of the drug. Why taper by 10% of my dosage? If we reduce our drug too quickly we can experience withdrawal symptoms. This topic has a list of common withdrawal symptoms (Glenmullens Symptoms). There are also Excel spreadsheets to use on the computer and PDF sheet of the same symptoms so you can track you symptoms if you wish to do this. Dr Joseph Glenmullen's Withdrawal Symptoms Post #1 of this topic explains how to got the doses you need: tips-for-tapering-off-paxil-paroxetine One of our moderators has successfully tapered off Paxil. This is the link to his success story: tao-of-the-brassmonkey There are other success stories here: success-stories-recovery-from-withdrawal This is your own Introduction topic where you can ask questions, journal your progress and connect with the community.

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    I feel tired and don't want to do everything after I took 50mg pristiq and 0.0625mg rivotril at the morning..
  7. @Altostrata Hello Altostrata Sorry for disturbing again. Now i am 8 Weeks off paroxetine, i think you can imagine that my condition is dying the worst is sleep I've had problems since the first incorrect reduction, but now it's completely different and even worse Maybe i can explain its Not easy Go to bed at 10:30pm close my eyes but I am very nervous because I know that it will be bad. I go to the toilet a few more times but do not know whether I slept in between, I kept thinking in between that I can not remember shortly afterwards, it is as if I was perhaps on the threshold of falling asleep then coming back to me and I can’t remember what I was thinking. sometimes it takes a couple of hours until 4 a.m. I don't know if I have slept or not. Then in the morning I try to close my eyes because I'm broken Then it happens again I think of something and then I forget about what I get scared of it and then it starts all over again until I get upset and broken up I had this also for the last Month if i tappered and also before when i was back on 10mg paroxetine but Not no itense I read about hypnagotic hallucinations but i think ist different Its a really poor sleep at the Limit of sleep. Did you hear something like this From other members. Normally i read a Lot about insomnia but yes sleep or Not. I am so afraid that it will never get better and I will go crazy for lack of relaxation. I still take the Dominal 45mg at 10pm dont know if this have something to do with that

    Do not change your drugs. Please let us know how you're feeling.
  9. So I have gotten down to 10mg now of the paxil after six months and the Dr wants me to do 10mg one day and skip the pill the next day ect. Like take the pill every other day......is this ok I'm having anxiety about doing this
  10. Thank you for creating your drug signature. That's a really great list of research that you've provided Alto. You didn't make any response to the post by Altostrata. Does what Alto provided answer your question?

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    Because I am too worry about myself and stupid. Sorry😢
  12. Altostrata

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    No, Mike, I'm talking about listening to me. Why should I answer your questions if you don't listen?
  13. Mikefeelworst

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    I mean my doctor doesn't listen to me about emotion numb..
  14. I'd wondered about that, was anyone keeping a record of blood types! And if this is an inflammation auto immune like response people are having, if they have it once, will it be WORSE the next year or so if they get it again? Like a kindling response? I wonder how this will play out with reinfections possibly being more dangerous as the years go by. Like people who have a mild reaction to being stung by a bee the first time but the second time it almost kills them. Hopefully they will have it sorted out with treatments sooner than later, as their is a vested interest in having one, since this could strike anyone. I'm sure they could have already done so long ago for withdrawal, but why bother for people who they don't feel are productive to society? We're an unimportant subset that's not worth their time, sadly.

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    Not sure why you're here, Mike. You ask questions but you don't listen. If you don't want to listen, don't ask questions. That makes sense, doesn't it?
  16. Mikefeelworst

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    I will meet my doctor on June 17th, I have no words to say. I think I told him my emotion numb, He should told me to decrease rivotril at night and don't need to eat at the morning...But he don't trust me... So I keep following him. I already took benzo over eight weeks...I think benzo is short-term drugs. Not recommended to take over four weeks.

    Mikefeelworst: Need help. I am so scared.

    I'm glad you're feeling better, Mike, and I hope you continue to feel better. You are still taking a lot of drugs. Please do not change your drugs again, until you find out the effect of the last change. If you continue to change your drugs, we cannot help you.

    I sleep well. But still brain blank. Still emotion numb. Good news is rested than before.

    Coronavirus and psychiatric drug tapering & withdrawal

    @Colonial: I know, I'd love to see research on the questions you posed. The latest on Covid is that TypeA blood folks are more likely to get hit harder (need oxygen, ventilation) from a study. But grain of salt as it seems like info changes rapidly. Anyways, I hope that there is an increase in scientific studies.

    How do you feel now?

    the night before last night
  22. Thanks ddub; out of curiosity; what was your experience on Celexa re side effects. One side effect I have to date is somewhat of a lack of libido, which some doctors attribute to depression, but I noticed it disapear with Celexa, and hasn't come back since (although slight boost with wellbutrin)

    Hanna72: I will be free

    Hello hanna, I hope you are feeling well. Good food can change almost everything and every one here should keep his food always good and not eat any thing. For alot of times, avocado salade rescued me from a bad suffer and also pecans, pistachios and olive oil . I used to use these types of foods instead of drugs to calmen my CNS and it succeeded almost every time i did it. I dropped by to say hello and know how are u doing and also wanted to stress the importance of good food . Sending hugs for u ❤️
  25. @wellb1989 I too had no problems if I skipped a dose or two while taking Wellbutrin regularly (I did NOT skip doses to taper, I did cold turkey which was one of the worst mistakes of my life). I felt just fine for a few months until one day it hit me like a ton of bricks. I’ve come to learn it’s not at all unusual for people to have a “honeymoon” period when eliminating a drug or reducing its dosage, and then get railroaded by withdrawal. I would not recommend skipping doses to taper. You might very well end up with a situation that is much more difficult to manage. It’s not as simple as just reinstating a medication once a certain window has passed.

    I’m reading a very inspiring story, Baylissa Frédérick’ s story, « With hope in my heart ». She has been through hell of Benzo WD. She is so inspiring, her story gives me hope for my life during and after WD.

    bmi197143: Help trying to taper 2

    What about Losartan? Please list the schedule for ALL your drugs. Gridley thought you were taking 0.017mg of the drug, not 3.4mg. Please take your regular dose of 3.4mg amitriptyline right away.
