Hello. I just joined and am trying to learn how to navigate this site. This is the only forum that I seem to be allowed to post in. 
 

Short introduction - I am 34 weeks pregnant. I stopped taking cymbalta around 2 months ago and switched to buspirone at the direction of my doctor. He tapered me off way too fast and now I’m in living hell and unsure what to do. With a baby coming really soon my options are limited and there seems like no good choices. I really need help.

Hello, and welcome to Surviving Antidepressants. We are a peer support forum to assist in tapering off psychiatric drugs safely, or recovering from psychiatric drug withdrawal. Could you follow these intstructions and fill in your signature for me? Thanks.

 

Your first task is to create a drug signature, with the following:

 

  • All current medication you take, the dose you take, when you started the drug, and when you made dose changes
  • All current supplements you take
  • An accurate history of recent drugs, taken in the last 12-24 months
  • Dates for recent should be written as 7 Oct 2023, or Oct 7 2023, or early Oct 2023, or mid Oct 2023
  • A history of drugs taken 24 months ago and beyond - if applicable
  • Dates for historical drugs can simply be listed as start and stop years
  • Please do not use 07/10/23 // 10/07/23 as this is intepreted differently around the world

 

  • Please leave out symptoms and diagnoses. See my signature for example of clear and concise information.
