Melo88: cold turkey


Recommended Posts

(Post moved from farid-paroxetine-of-hell)



at first I'm so sorry for my bad English !!!

I'm from Germany and i need your help, please!

in january I had a cold turkey (because I don't know anything about withdrawal!!!)


but my question is another. in the last year I was so much better.

Like Farid in this Thread I stopped drinking coffee before 5 weeks.

since this time I'm back in a horrific setback.

it's like Farid's report an so much about it. I have panic, not from this world, the histamine problems are exploded.

Is there anyone who knows something about it and how long it will stay?

I'm back in bed since 5 week because coffee!!!

I'm suizidal because the panik is so so unbearable.

If you know something about it please answer me!


Best wishes

Hi Melo and welcome to SA,


We need to know more details about your drug history.  Please create your drug signature following these instructions.  Include ALL drugs/supplements, current AND previous.  Thank you.


Instructions:  Withdrawal History Signature


Once we have more information about what drug/s etc you have been taking we will be better able to offer suggestions.


This is your own Introduction topic which is the best place to ask questions about your own situation and journal your progress.



Here is a message from Altostrata, SA's founder.  And this is the link to a recent interview with her:  INTERVIEW with Altostrata, SA's founder

One of the things that's very important to each person here is knowing that healing is possible. Please don't just go away when you feel better! "Pay it forward" by updating your Intro topic with your progress and come back to post your success story when you are finally clear of all those awful symptoms.


Nothing is more valuable to the community than seeing how recovery happens. You have lots of people hoping you'll get better. Please let them know when you do.
