Hello Everyone,

This is my first post.  I have been lurking on this site for over a year.  I wanted to share a success story.  I have been on every anti-depressant you could ever imagine for the past 30 years.  To put them in my signature would be a waste of time as there would not be enough room.  LOL.    Recently I tapered off of Klonopin and then Gabapentin using NAD+ Therapy.  This was the only way I could get off and it worked great.  I had protracted withdrawal which was bad.   I have tried to get bank on anti-depressants recently and I am just too sensitive.  I read about using Fish Oil on this site and the post that "AltoStrata" has made about fish oil.  I went to Trader Joes and purchased exactly what he was taking and implement the same thing.  Guess what.  I feel amazing.  I cannot thank you enough AltoStrata for sharing this.

Hi, Mentalhealth1. 

 

Welcome to Surviving Antidepressants.

 

I'm glad you're feeling so well! Yes, fish oil is a good supplement to add for many of us during withdrawal. 

 

Are you completely off all psychiatric drugs now? 

 

Please add a signature. While I understand you've been on a number of them, the first post in this thread describes how you can add them all in:

A little bit.  It's mainly used for alcohol and opioid withdrawals.  I never heard back from the SA member that I tagged to hear what they had to say about it.
