Hi, my name is fightgirl, and I am a 55 years old female. I need help. I have a mixed personality disorder and was put on this polydrugged cocktail (Zyprexa, klonopin, risperidone, Lormetazepam, Cymbalta, Eutirox, Simvastatin, omeprazole,toviaz)

 

I was basically CTed K. In one month they took me out of K 1,5mgs. I was reinstated at 1,5mg of K again. Since that time I started having low blood pressure,blurred vision right now, and tachycardia every day when I take my morning dose of klonopin. I tried the K liquid dropping out from 5 drops to 3 drops for a while. Each drop is 0,1ml.I tried a different method seeing that I didn't improve with the Klonopin liquid. I felt dizzy and I had tachycardia.

I am trying dry cut. I take 3 pills in the morning (Cymbalta 60 Mg, Eutirox and Klonopin 0,30 mg dry cut with the scale),1 pill in the afternoon (Cymbalta 60 Mg)and 8 pills at night (toviaz 8 mg, Lormetazepam 1mg, Klonopin 1 mg, Zyprexa 10mg, risperidone 6 mg, Simvastatina 10mg, omeprazole 10mg). They are too many pills. Am I bad because of the Cold Turkey? I  dont stabilize. I tried Klonopin 2, 5mg / ml decreasing 1 drop each month, from 0,5 mg to 0,3mg. Should I  reinstate at a higher dose of Klonopin, 1,5mg? Should I stay at  Klonopin 1,30mg total dose? I have been at this dose a couple of months and I don't get better. I keep having tachycardia (100 to 110 bpm on resting) and low BP (97 to 100 systolic over 70 to 80 diastolic more or less).My tachycardia gets better as the day goes by,by the afternoon or evening.

I have akathisia too now when before I didn't have it.

Anyone experience with tapering very fast and reinstatement at a low dose and not stabilizing? Psychiatrist did a fast taper ( 2mg of Klonopin in 2 months), reinstatement at 1,5mg of Klonopin after the fast taper.I developed tachycardia during reinstatement. Went to psychiatrist he said none of the drugs I give you gives tachycardia.I am taking two neuroleptics ( risperidone 6mg and Zyprexa 10 Mg). She said risperidone can cause tachycardia. Before I took risperidone 6mg and Zyprexa 10 mgs and never had tachycardia.New psychiatrist wants me to go back to the original dose (1-1-2, Klonopin 0,5mg)and taper risperidone at the same time ( go from risperidone 6mg to 5mg). Can I get kindled if I up my Klonopin to 2mgs total)? I can't taper risperidone either because it is more than a 10 percent cut. This what she want me to take:

 

Klonopin 0,5 mg 1-1-2

Zyprexa 10 mg 0-0-1

Risperidone 4mg 0-0-1

Risperidone 1mg 0-0-1

Lormetazepam 2mg 0-0-1/2

Cymbalta 60 Mg 1-1-0

 

This is what I take:

Klonopin: 0,30-0-2 dry cut method

Zyprexa 10mg: 0-0-1

Risperidone 6mg: 0-0-1

Lormetazepam 2mg: 0-0-1/2

Cymbalta 60 Mg: 1-1-0

Can someone tell if if these sxs sound like protracted WD?

 

Good morning everyone.I need some help very badly as I don't know what to do. To be protracted you need to be one year off psychotropics (bnz, ad,ap)?I  was tapered very fast of K. I was taking off k in 2mg in 2 months. I  was reinstated at 1,5mg in March 2023. I don't stabilize and every day is worst. My sxs include tachycardia on resting, dizziness,low BP, tinnitus, cramping in the back like they pricking me,severe back muscle pain,heavy legs, can't get up my arms very well, unsteadiness, tachycardia while walking,muscle cramping,and tremors.Tachycardia when I take my morning dose of Klonopin (0,30 mg dry cut)

I am on 5 different psychotropic drugs (zyprexa 10 mg, Klonopin 1,30mg, risperidone 6mg, cymbalta 120 mg, lormatezapam 1mg), as well on Toviaz. My psychiatrist ( I hate her), wants me to increase my  Klonopin to 2 mg using Klonopin 0,5mg (1-1-2), and lower my risperidone from 6 mg to 4 mg. I know this is insane. I won't do it. I tapered 0,2ml (0,5ml -2ml =0,30 ml),in two months using the liquid solution in the morning (September 2023-October 2023).

 have stayed at this dose since October 2023 until today (April 29th,2024).I changed liquid solution to dry cut to see if better, but it doesn't.Does this sound protracted Withdrawal?

Hi fightwoman,

I find it helpful to refer to this WD symptom checklist: Daily Checklist of Antidepressant Withdrawal Symptoms (PDF) 

 

You'll see that many of the things you mention are on the checklist. These symptoms can linger for quite a while unfortunately.

 

Best wishes

Hi @fightwoman,

 

I am sorry that you where put on so many drugs. 2 antipsychotics, 2 benzodiazepines and 1 antidepressant + toviaz. Did your doctors tell you why so many? As far as I know personality disorders do not justify this.

 

Why do you want to stop omeprazole first? Do you have any adverse reactions or drug interactions with omeprazole? Taking so many drugs, your stomach might need some protection?!

 

I am no doctor, but I would not be surprised if you felt better with less drugs.

 

I think you need to tag moderators if you want them to help you (like I did with your name).

 

In your case I would do  a drug interaction check on this website https://www.drugs.com/drug_interactions.html 

and post the link of the result.

And I would discuss your next steps here without hurry and thoroughly, since your drug load looks like a mess to me.

 

All the best

Earlier drug history:

Paroxetine  2001 until 2003, quit cold turkey, don't remember dose; Venlafaxine 2005 until Dez. 2023, mostly 75mg xr per day, for about 4 years 37.5mg xr; quite a lot of Antihistamines because of allergy; there were other drugs that I don't remember all, but nothing what I consistently took over a longer period of time, for example Lorazepam 0.5mg prn.

Recent developments:

Dez 2023 - 03/13/2024 quitting Venlafaxine 75mg (skipping doses); 04/07/2024 reinstating Venlafaxine 12,5mg; 04/17/2024 Venlafaxine 25mg; 4/29/24 until 5/4/24 Trimipramine, 5mg going down to zero over 5 days

Drugs right now:

Venlafaxine 25mg; supplements: 500mg magnesium, 100mg aspirin and melatonin spray

 

I am no medical expert. I am dependent on Venlafaxine, trying to find and give peer support in this community and simply giving my opinion. Double check any information before you take action, for example with your doctor.

 

First they sell addictive drugs as harmless and then they leave you alone dosing fractions of a mg correctly or plunging into the abyss.

Hi @Alfred1977,yes, I have been diagnosed with limited personality disorder. Before I didn't know, but now I understand the big trouble I am with the polypharmacy.My psychiatry wants me to up my Klonopin to Klonopin mg because my previous psychiatrist did me a fast taper of Klonopin.I was taking 2 mg of Klonopin and he took me off Klonopin in 2 months. Since that time I have tachycardia what I didnt have when I took Klonopin 0,5mg (1-1-2). I was reinstated at 1,5mg. They don't acknowledge the harm they do with these fast tapers.Now the new psychiatrist wants me on Klonopin like I took it before (k 0,5mg 1-1-2).This woman is crazy. I might suffer kindling. Because I have tachycardia right now because of the fast taper or almost CT,she wants me to taper risperidone 5 mg instead of 6mg what is more than 10 percent. I can't taper 2 drugs same time.

@Alfred1977, I decided to cold turkey Omeprazole because I thought I was safe. I didn't know better. I was taking 8 drugs at night they interacted with each other. I was having constipation.Two weeks have passed, and now I am having acid reflux that goes up all the way up to my throat and down again.

As far as I know, Klonopin is one of the most powerful benzodiazepines and 2mg per day is a pretty high dose. This is a very powerful and dangerous drug that you cannot quit in a matter of 2 months. I think reinstating you on Klonopin was the right choice though. You need to get off this slowly.

Earlier drug history:

Paroxetine  2001 until 2003, quit cold turkey, don't remember dose; Venlafaxine 2005 until Dez. 2023, mostly 75mg xr per day, for about 4 years 37.5mg xr; quite a lot of Antihistamines because of allergy; there were other drugs that I don't remember all, but nothing what I consistently took over a longer period of time, for example Lorazepam 0.5mg prn.

As far as I know, Klonopin is one of the most powerful benzodiazepines and 2mg per day is a pretty high dose. This is a very powerful and dangerous drug that you cannot quit in a matter of 2 months. I think reinstating you on Klonopin was the right choice though. You need to get off this slowly.

I was reinstated at 1,5mg, but I tapered to 1,30mg.I did a 0,1ml decrease for 2 months (0,30ml-0-1mg) using Klonopin 2,5mg/ml.Months have passed by and I can't keep tapering below. I am at 1,29mg.

 

I am doing dry cut now.

March 2023

I was almost CTed from Klonopin 2mg. Using Klonopin 0,5mg pills.

1-1-2 (2mg) original dose

1-1/2-2mg (1,75 mg,10 days)

1/2-0-2 (1,25 mg,10 days)

0-0-2 (1mg,10 days)

0-0-1 1/2 (0,75mg,10 days)

O-0-1 (0,5mg,10 days)

O-0-1/2 (0,25mg,10 days)

O-0-0 end of taper of Klonopin.

Was reinstated Klonopin at 1-0-2 (1,5mg)

01/08/24 Klonopin 1,30mg, risperidone 6 mg, Zyprexa 10 mg, Lormetazepam 1mg, Cymbalta 60 Mg, toviaz 8 mg, Omeprazole 20mg, Simvastatin 10mg, Eutirox 75g

Don't know if tapering Klonopin or Omeprazole first is a good idea. Benzodiazepines protect your sleep and Omeprazole your stomach, those are possibly the things you want to taper last. I really would tag some senior members and ask them for help in your case. Your situation sounds complicated to me.

Earlier drug history:

Paroxetine  2001 until 2003, quit cold turkey, don't remember dose; Venlafaxine 2005 until Dez. 2023, mostly 75mg xr per day, for about 4 years 37.5mg xr; quite a lot of Antihistamines because of allergy; there were other drugs that I don't remember all, but nothing what I consistently took over a longer period of time, for example Lorazepam 0.5mg prn.

Recent developments:

Dez 2023 - 03/13/2024 quitting Venlafaxine 75mg (skipping doses); 04/07/2024 reinstating Venlafaxine 12,5mg; 04/17/2024 Venlafaxine 25mg; 4/29/24 until 5/4/24 Trimipramine, 5mg going down to zero over 5 days

Drugs right now:

Venlafaxine 25mg; supplements: 500mg magnesium, 100mg aspirin and melatonin spray

 

I am no medical expert. I am dependent on Venlafaxine, trying to find and give peer support in this community and simply giving my opinion. Double check any information before you take action, for example with your doctor.

 

First they sell addictive drugs as harmless and then they leave you alone dosing fractions of a mg correctly or plunging into the abyss.

Hi @Emonda,

could you help @fightwoman find the aid of some experienced members of this community? She seems to have a complicated drug history and an excessive amount of current drugs. Personally I had no idea where and how to start if I was in her shoes.

 You should add all drugs, also those that are not psychotropic.

 

If you have a hard time right now getting things together and writing in this community, maybe your boyfriend can help with that too?!
