Does anyone ever meet virtually to talk about how they're doing?


Recommended Posts

I'm curious to know if there are ever any meetings organized where recoverees can come together to talk about their experiences, challenges and successes. Especially in this day and age of virtual meetings I wouldn't be surprised if something was already organized. Is this a thing already?

1998- Fluoxetine

2012- One dose of Escitalopram causes suicidal ideation. Started Venlafaxine. Successfully discontinued using a Fluoxetine bridge.

December 2021- 4 days of 5-HTP. Had some severe dysphoric symptoms trying to discontinue. Started Fluoxetine 10mg. Provided with five 1mg doses of Ativan as well.

January 6th- Continued to take Fluoxetine 10mg. Experienced deepened depression and suicidal ideation.

January 9th- 5mg dose. Experiencing deepened depression and suicidal ideation.

January 10th- Quit Fluoxerine CT
