  2. I just saw this and I am going to hold myself to not use swearwords. Ommmmm... Note: This has graphic descriptions of the situation in Europe and you might want to stop reading if you are worried it might trigger you. But I feel like it is necessary to take this seriously. That is the only reason that they are there. So that we start taking this seriously. TRIGGER WARNING! I live in Europe and have friends who work in ERs in Spain (recruited from other specialties such as neurology) and this is not a joke, this is not overblown, this is absolutely terrifying. In Madrid they converted an ice rink into a place to store the dead bodies because the crematoriums can't handle them. People are dying and being buried without being able to say goodbye to their loved ones. Ventilators are rationed often not given to older patients with informal rules in various hospitals of age 65/70 and above disadvantaged. *ALL* these measures of social distancing are absolutely necessary. And we were late in implementing them. And this is NOT *like* THE FLU. Have you ever heard of ventilator shortages on this scale with the flu in a developed country? Yes, the economics of it are terrifying and will have a long term impact. Yes, it will hurt some people more than others. But we can implement policies to not have that happen and support the economy. The alternative is much much much worse. And no, in Italy it is not reaching a plateau. Some regions of Itay have been in lockdown since March 9th and it is still not slowing down much.

    I'm sorry you're feeling bad. There are going to be windows and waves for some time, unfortunately. It can take a while, as I said, for things to level off. Have you tried the magnesium or omegas I mentioned earlier? They are helpful in calming the nervous system. Magnesium, nature's calcium channel blocker Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) Add in one at a time and at a low dose in case you do experience problems.

    Pens: Starting Over

    Oh Pens, and you are not alone in that.......the not having the support of your doctor, with withdrawal. Your Candida overgrowth may have been caused by the Pred forte. Or if it was present before then, aggravated by that. Are you doing the nystatin topically, for your thrush? Swishing it around. And then, it had sounded like it was clearing some too, when the doctor had you go another week with it. The antifungals can be tough on ones system too. Have you had a chance to check on the nystatin and side effects and all? Alto went over some of them. You can do this. Be really in charge of your own healing and health. So very nice......when one CAN find a doctor who is a partner in this, and so unfortunate that many can't find this kind of relationship with a doctor. Just one doctor. Maybe you are getting too many inputs, from too many doctors and more alternative practitioners now. I think it can be tough too, if you do too much at one time. For example, you've been considering many angles. I think, if I were you, I might just work on getting the thrush cleared up now. Pens, you only got an hour of sleep last night too!!!! Oh boy. Of course your anxieties are sky rocketing this morning......or were. Was it present before the cataract surgery? Signs of Candida overgrowth. And wow, I'm finding 3 topics on it here, on site. I don't know if you found them yet. Candida Albicans overgrowth/Yeast infections ^ this one was started by JungleChicken, who is also active recently on her Introduction thread Works hard on the HA issues too. ❤️ I hope you are having a restful day. And I know it's real hard right now......darn it! I'm so sorry. (((((Pens))))) Sending encouragement too! L, P, H, and G, mmt

    LostInSpace: Help with Lexapro withdrawal :(

    I was diagnosed with blood work, urinalysis (checking for DNA of pathogens) and Autonomic Response Testing. Issues are Lyme, co-infections, herpes, Epstein Barr Virus is a big one, and possible intestinal parasites. I treated with many powerful herbs, binders, coffee enemas, saunas, other supplements, strong drugs from a compounding pharmacy, etc. 0 progress made. I'm moving onto rife and PEMF treatment which at this point may be my last hope, since these modalities can reach areas of the body herbs and other remedies can not. I have severe stabbing, kneading, throbbing, pinching, vibrating and vice like gripping all up and down the left side of my head and face. Primarily in the jaw, teeth and gums, undulating and radiating in every direction. In some spots it is like several electric sewing machine needles bunched together drilling down that never shut off. It causes my face to contort. This has been going on for 5 years, nonstop. There is never relief. To accompany it, there is temperature dysregulation, bilateral tinnitus, cognitive challenges, severe anxiety, paranoia, confusion, racing and intrusive thoughts. I’ve considered this next problem to be an atypical psychosis, a non-hallucinatory dissociation. I am not fully connected to the same world everyone else is. I do not perceive all the aspects of life exactly how they are happening although I know they are there. It’s like I’m living life with my hands up against the glass of room I cannot get out of. I do not comprehend things fully. At work events like trainings, I see people talking but often cannot assimilate the information. I am trapped in a dark and torturous place, far away from where you live. I cannot communicate properly. I often look crazy or angry and have a difficult time with the simplest of conversations. I am easily misunderstood which is very painful. I repel people. I never feel joy, calmness or peace of mind. There is no relaxing to watch a movie. No sitting down quietly to read a book. Sitting across from someone having a meal is a very difficult task. Relationships are impossible. I experience anger and frustration but have very little feeling. I cannot be in the sun for very long, exercise much or let my body temperature rise. I cannot be on my feet for more than about 30-45 minutes due to inflammation. Lately, I spend most of my day horizontally just trying to make it to the end of the day, bewildered at the severity of my condition. I have acquired enough Nembutal to kill me twice, but I've had a spiritual awakening recently, and what I've learned about the soul's path and potential blow back from exiting early has stopped me from taking the final steps. Also because of the shock wave it would send through the family, leaving them with an awful mess to clean up. But my suffering is ineffable and not sustainable. We shall see.

    Thank you @Gridley for getting back to me so quickly. Looking back through my journal, I would say that I have declined over the past two weeks. When I started in February, I had more windows during the day and didn't have trouble eating. Since March 14, I've had fewer and shorter windows and the waves are deeper, increased anxiety is also making it hard to eat.

    Rozon1: Effexor withdrawls

    Hey @mstimc it’s actually amazing how well I’m doing mentally compared to just 4 months ago. I wanted to legit just sit and die. You could tell by the posts that I’ve made. I was in 24/7 panic mode. Resting heart rate of 110-120. Using this forum as a crutch to help. I’m very glad with the progress I’ve made, no doubt. My mental state is 65% there. Compared to 1%. I say 1% because if it was any lower, I’d be brain dead basically lol. I didn’t know how I was doing it everyday. It just seems everyday seems to get better and better mentally but the physical symptoms continue to remain. Unchanged. But I understand, it’s part of the healing. I think my chest to starting to clear up so my cough isn’t as bad anymore. I am grateful to everyone here. You guys can’t physical help me or tell me what to do but the fact that you guys listen to me and respond with your honest opinion is better than nothing. My mom wasn’t even taking me serious. My kids mom wasn’t taking me serious. I can’t blame them. It sounds so bizarre and unreal. People go on and off anti depressants all the time. So of course it’s a stretch to believe me. I sound crazy. Before all of this, I was 100% functional normal person. Productive, great personality, attitude, etc. then for the past 4 months, if you exclude the last 4 months of me being on the drug and feeling doped up all the time, it’s just been a living nightmare. one thing that I’ve learned. I’m grateful that I’m not where I was but I’m still wanting to be better. But this isn’t enough healing. I need more. thank you guys
  12. Hey Mars15, I think it's up to you. Good points by brassmonkey really. Not meant to scare you. I do see that you had gone on and off Lexapro a couple of times, before the fast taper to off in December 2019. And sometimes, that can set ones nervous system up for kindling. And yes, the 0.1 dose you are considering reinstating, is nice and low, and if things went South, or you got worse, you could just quit the reinstatement. I think the first post, in the reinstatement topic, covers the risk factor pretty well........the humpty dumpty analogy, and then there is a paragraph at the end of the first post too. And so......if you are doing "well enough" now, and only you can really be the one that determines that, then if I were you, and I was "well enough".......I wouldn't reinstate. Sometimes though, it can be pretty miraculous, a small reinstatement too. I mean I've seen that, in my time here. We've got that antibiotic reaction to consider with you too. That might just take time to recover from. And I don't know, or have no way of knowing, if your increased symptoms were specific to the ABX, or delayed WD. Me, I was a mess, completely non-functional, after a too quick taper.......and only wish, I had known, or some provider had known, to try a wee reinstatement, way back when I presented to them, barely able to put words together. By the time I got here, I had a hospitalization, and then remedication with different meds/drugs, and was at least 6 months out from my ill fated coming off Lexapro. So that's part of my more recent story. I had a long history of drugs/medications and diagnonsense. And it sounds like, you are, right now, in one of those more challenging life situations..........graduation from college? And the uncertainty of the "rest of your life", as well. We haven't gotten into too much with you, as far as non-drug coping goes either. Sometimes, this huge opportunity arises, in the form of WDsyndrome, in which we do GET to learn and try new ways of coping with life. Not to undermine, the stark severity of WD syndrome at all. I mean I lived through it, and it can be intense, acutely. As I began to learn and grow into trying new non-drug coping skills though.......it did get better. And it has continued to. Symptoms and Self Care forum ^ you'll find most of the non drug coping there, and happy to direct you as well, as far as finding good stuff to deal with certain symptoms And you should, get familiar with the other forums too, when you get a chance to. So much good stuff here, helpful stuff.......got me through some tough times. Oh Mars, I hope that helps. And it does get better......always, or at least I think so. I know that I probably did not touch on all your points, and apologies. Good luck too, with final exams, and graduation! That's exciting. L, P, H, and G, mmt
  13. Welcome to SA, Mooki24. Yes, that was a very fast taper. Unfortunately, doctors invariably taper their patients far too fast, causing the withdrawal symptoms you're now experiencing. You're wise to hold off on any further taper until your withdrawal symptoms subside. This may take some time, so please be patient. We recommend tapering no more than 10% of you current dose every four weeks. Why taper by 10% of my dosage? This link is specifically about tapering fluvoxamine, including how to get the smaller nonstandard doses you'll need for your 10% taper. Tips for tapering off Luvox (fluvoxamine) So that you have a better understanding of what you're experiencing, here is some information on withdrawal and healing. The symptoms you describe are typical withdrawal symptoms. What is withdrawal syndrome. Daily Checklist of Antidepressant Withdrawal Symptoms (PDF) When we take medications, the CNS (central nervous system) responds by making changes over the months and years we take the drug(s). When the medication is discontinued, the CNS has to undo all the changes it made. Rebuilding the neurotransmitter production and reactivating the receptor and transporter cells takes time -- during that rebuilding process symptoms occur. These explain the healing process really well: Video: Healing From Antidepressants - Patterns of Recovery We don't recommend a lot of supplements on SA, as many members report being sensitive to them due to our over-reactive nervous systems, but two supplements that we do recommend are magnesium (glycinate is a good form) and omega 3 (fish oil). Many people find these to be calming to the nervous system. Magnesium, nature's calcium channel blocker Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) Add in one at a time and at a low dose in case you do experience problems. This is your Introduction topic, where you can ask questions and connect with other members. We're glad you found your way here.

    Pens: Starting Over

    I’ve read some of the posts on Candida overgrowth caused from antidepressant WD. Mine doesn’t want to clear up. If I can’t get it cleared up by taking nystatin and watching my diet, how and when will I be able to taper again? I’m taking probiotics and vitamins C and E to build up my immune system. I’m sorry I’m on the verge of tears. If I taper too quickly I can’t sleep. I don’t feel like my Candida is clearing up and maybe won’t because I’m still withdrawing and I can’t withdraw any more right now because on my second week of nystatin. Sorry, I’m feeling panicky. Can’t sleep if I taper too fast. I don’t have the support of my doctor he wants me to quit but is willing to prescribe Benzos for lack of sleep. I’m feeling discouraged.

How were you diagnosed? And what other conditions, if you don't mind saying? But oh, so very sorry, as it sounds just really, really tough at this point. Yes, please hold on, for improvements. And I will keep you in my thoughts, as well. For healing. What did you do, in the way of treating aggressively? Stronger Windows sound good, but not stronger Waves. Can you give us, or would you like to give us an idea, of some of the symptoms you deal with now? (((((LostinSpace))))))) L, P, H, and G, mmt
  16. Thanks for the update, Heath. Even with a 10% taper there are going to be some withdrawal symptoms. As you said, they are temporary as your body adjusts to the new dose. It's fine to hold until your appointment. We recommend a gradual crossover from tablet to liquid to allow your system to adjust. Absorption rates are often different with liquid. 3/4 of your dose tablet, 1/4 liquid for 3 to 7 days 1/2, 1/2 for 3 to 7 days 1/4 tablet, 3/4 liquid for 3 to 7 days all liquid thereafter Do not taper further until you've made the crossover--our old rule of making only one change at a time. Then, if you're feeling stable, you can continue with a 10% taper.

    Victor3 going off Lexapro

    Hi Victor3, And thank you for getting your signature done. How are you doing today? I'm going to give you some links today too, to some of the general information here, on tapering, and WD(withdrawal). The 10% taper recommendation is a harm reduction approach to going off psychiatric drugs. *Why taper by 10% of my dosage? Brain Remodelling *What is Withdrawal syndrome. Dr.Glenmullen’s withdrawal symptom list The Windows and Waves Pattern of Stabilization When we take medications, the CNS (central nervous system) responds by making changes over the months and years we take the drug(s). When the medication is discontinued, the CNS has to undo all the changes it made. The CNS likes stability. Rebuilding the neurotransmitter production and reactivating the receptor and transporter cells takes time -- during that rebuilding process symptoms occur. And sleep is really important during withdrawal. So, in partial answer to your question there about natural deficiency of neurotransmitters.........I don't believe that the answer is in neurotransmitters, or ever was, or a lack somehow of them, leading to various states. I don't think it's that simple. Take a look at this: Again, chemical imbalance is a myth. Stop the lies, please. We don't recommend a lot of supplements on SA, as many members report being sensitive to them due to our over-reactive nervous systems, but two supplements that we do recommend are magnesium and omega 3 (fish oil). Many people find these to be calming to the nervous system. Magnesium, nature's calcium channel blocker Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) You'll see, from the main page, or Home page, all the forums lined up.

    Hello - I have not improved much at all. But about a year into withdrawal, I found I had Lyme disease and other chronic conditions. I started treating aggressively but did not notice any improvement there either. Just recently, over 5 years past cold turkey, I'm starting to have stronger windows and waves, but overall my condition has worsened. Now I cannot tolerate any supplements, meds, etc. I feel the end is very near. I"ve made all the preparations but will hold on awhile longer to see if things improve.

    LostInSpace: Help with Lexapro withdrawal :(

    Hi LostInSpace, @LostInSpace I found your post in Success Stories and moved it back here, for now. You could, if you haven't already done so, scan through some of the Success Stories, and then ask specifically in the topics, your question again. How are you doing? And welcome back. I have not seen you about the site for some time. And.......so hope that you are seeing improvements. I was off everything, after a very long history of psych drugs, in 2016 December. I think I have followed a fairly typical Windows and Waves pattern of healing. And believe that I started healing pretty much from the get go, to some extent. At this point out, I really have to say, that I am doing Well, with a capital W. I did get a Wave back last fall that lasted a couple of months. And it did have some high intensity symptoms included. Which resolved. And oh, so hope you are doing pretty good right now. Do tell. Symptoms now? Have you hit a wave? I hope not, fingers crossed on that, but do tell. Best, L, P, H, and G, mmt

    Rozon1: Effexor withdrawls

    Rozon If you're recovery arc is anything like mine, your physical symptoms will begin to diminish as your mental and emotional condition improves. I think this is true for two reasons: 1) anxiety and anxious behavior can effect our bodies in any number of ways, and ways that often change (one day its stomach problems, the next day achy muscles, etc,). Work on your mental state and your physical symptoms will begin to slowly fade. 2) The remaining aches, pains and issues will fade in importance as they're crowded out by more positive inputs. As Alto and Colonial said, it takes time and patience, but you've already proven to yourself you can heal.

  26. @GridleyThis last week started feeling tired and sleepy more and not wanting to do anything no get up and go. Not talking much and forgetfulness. Also the last two days sugar cravings and dry sinuses and mouth more. I have noticed all of these being side effects or wd or start up side effects of these ssris over the years. So I believe these are from body adjusting to dose change from 03/07/2020 ? I wished I felt more energy like on the week of the 18th but I know it’s only temporary with these meds. It’s gonna be a couple of months till I go back to dr so I may hold at 10 until then we’ll see. Thanks
