These sound like WD symptoms.

 

Have a read of the Drug Interaction Checker (google it) and put the drugs you take into that.

 

You should have a read of this link: Taking multiple psych drugs? Which drug to taper first?

 

A few other helpful links to digest?

Emotional Spirals

We don't suggest many supplements, but two that many of us find helpful are magnesium and omega-3 fish oil. Here are the links for info about those. Add one at a time and start with a low dose to see how it affects you. 


Magnesium

 

Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil)

 

Avoid alcohol. 

 

Don't change the manufacturer of your AD.
