Mads1202: Sertraline WD?? Internal Buzzing/Shaking/Tremors


Recommended Posts

Hello all! I wanted to post about my experience with Sertraline WD and my story. I have a history of anxiety and panic attacks. I may have even had a mild form of agoraphobia in my early years. I was put on Zoloft 50mg back in 2015 for anxiety. I have been on it since then with some issues here and there but the real problems didn’t start until recently. I started having panic attacks and high anxiety again so I went to my PCP and told me to increase the Zoloft to 75mg. That only made things worse. I was then sent to a psychiatrist that wanted to try and switch me to Prozac 20mg. This did not help with anxiety at all and it started a weird symptom that I have had for months now. I started having this internal buzzing/shaking. She then thought it was a smart idea to increase to 30mg. After a few weeks, I could not take the way it was making me feel so we switched back to Zoloft 50mg. I decided to get off of all SSRIs at this point because the way I was feeling was terrible. 

I stopped cold turkey on May 11th. I really have not had any bad WD symptoms except for the internal buzzing. That is one that has not gone away, even to this day. I am almost a month off of the SSRIs. I have been taking supplements to help manage any symptoms and my anxiety. Omega 3s, Vit D with K, Probiotics, Daily multi, ION gut support, Glutathione, Magnesium Glycinate. 
 

I had blood work done and all levels were within normal range. 
 

Has anyone else had these internal tremors that are constant? My PCP and psychiatrist are stumped and don’t know what it could be.

Hello. I had internal trembling when I was in early withdrawal.  It did go away eventually.  I don't remember how long that took, as it was 6 or 7 years ago.  I would guess it took several months to go away.  It is completely gone now, and has been for years, so I'm sure yours will, too.  It takes a long time for these symptoms to subside.  As Lotus said, you are fortunate that this is your only major symptom.  

 

What are your symptoms now?  

 

Let me give you some information to help you understand why these things take a lot of time to resolve.

I hope you will be really careful about going back on psych drugs in the future.  The more we go on and off them, the harder it is to get off of them later, and the more likely we are to have adverse reactions to them.

@getofflex I am around 32 days of being off of meds and I am still experiencing the internal shaking. It can be more intense some days than others but maybe it’s in my mind? I am still trying to learn how to manage my anxiety without meds so it’s a journey. That is the only symptom I am having as of now

I see.  You are only about a month off of them.  I'm sure you will gradually feel better.  Be sure and completely avoid alcohol and other mind altering substances, even caffeine.  These can set you back pretty badly for a while.  Do lots of natural self care things - good diet, gentle walks if you can, plenty of fluids, avoid processed foods, sugar, excess salt, etc, avoid drama and toxic people if possible,  and horror movies, etc.  Do whatever calms and soothes your nervous system.  Be gentle on yourself.

I'm glad I was able to help.  🙂

 

Intense exercise will tend to make withdrawal symptoms worse - we call this exercise intolerance.  I can't exercise intensely yet myself.  Try walks outside.  That should eventually subside, too.

Lex,

 

Relating to someone else is nice. My PCP is stumped as well as my psychiatrist. They both are saying to see each other, almost dismissive and not wanting to deal with my physical concerns. They also both are saying it’s not withdrawal so it makes me think there could be an underlying issue. 

Did you do anything to help calm them down during the day? They are constant and sometimes so intense I can’t concentrate on what I am doing.

I strongly suspect you are still dealing with withdrawal.  You only just stopped the Zoloft a month ago.  It takes months, if not years, for the nervous system to recover. Please be cautious about doctors, they will likely want to put you on more drugs.  I've seen this many times in this forum, and it almost always makes them worse.  

 

What I did was do things that soothed and calmed my nervous system.  I didn't have this internal buzzing as bad as you did.  I noticed it more at night when I couldn't sleep.  The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to distract yourself, and try not to think about it and focus on it.  That will decrease your anxiety about it, and that will help your nervous system.  Doing artistic things is very therapeutic - adult coloring books, drawing, painting, knitting, sewing, building something, etc.  Even simple stuff like cooking, baking, cleaning, organizing, walking, etc are good activities to take your mind off of it.  I often found that a gentle walk outside would calm my nervous system.

Update:

I believe I have had my first window and wave experience. I had about a week or 2 of feeling amazing. I had little to no anxiety and my physical symptoms were nonexistent. I felt on top of the world and was excited about progress. But then, the wave came and it felt like I was back to the beginning of my journey. Terrible anxiety/depression. Panic attacks and constant anxiety. DPDR and wanting to sleep a lot. My internal tremors and buzzing is back. Legs feel weak. I have a vacation in a few days and I am not looking forward to going at all. This will be about 2 months completely off of Zoloft.

Yes, this sounds like classic windows and waves pattern of recovery.  I'm 2 years off Lexapro, and still have waves, although they are brief and less frequent now.  Hang in there.  It will gradually get better.  Unfortunately, it can take many months, and sometimes years to fully recover. It's wonderful that you had the window - it shows that you are recovering!

Hello!

I wanted to give a quick update on what I have been experiencing. 
 

I would say the past 2-3 weeks I have been in a GREAT window. It forgot am how much “normalcy” feels like. It’s a breath of fresh air and I am encouraged that I am healing. Now I know waves could be in my future but I will savor these moments. Now I will say that I went to a functional medicine doctor to talk about my overall health. I won’t get too into the details but she wanted to put me on supplements to help my anxiety. She put me on a B6, B-12 methyl, and Sam-E. I started taking those yesterday and today I had a panic attack. I had increased anxiety today and felt very off. I am wondering if these vitamins could have caused this anxiety/panic. I think I may stop these for now and not take anything since I have been doing alright for a few weeks.

 

Another question is, is hydroxyzine okay to take while healing your nervous system?

@Mads1202 Hi Mads,  I wanted to say hello. I saw that you asked about internal tremors a while ago on another thread while I was communicating with someone else that had that problem. I don't know how I missed your question but I saw this morning that I never responded to you and for that I apologize.  It appears that you have had some great Moderators answer that question here on your page, however I wanted to tell you about my own experience with it since it was a huge issue for me.

 

I see that you have had a few windows and the problem stopped. That is how it started to clear up for me as well. However what I have noticed is that while I am almost internal tremor free, when I change other medications or get exhausted sometimes it still comes back.  It is not bad and I know that it will hang around for perhaps just a day.  No doctor has ever been able to address it either so I just gave up asking.  You said in one of your posts it might be your imagination.  No it is not, it is very real and I know how awful it can be. If it comes back and you need someone to vent to please feel free to come over to my page and say hello.

 

I wish you the best of luck with healing. It sounds like you are well on your way and should have less and less problems as time goes on.

Has anyone traveled while they were in WD? I currently go through windows and waves (with the windows getting longer) but still experience anxiety and internal buzzing at times. We are traveling to Hawaii in 3 weeks and I am scared I am going to overdue it. But I also don’t want to let anxiety hold me back from living my life. Anybody have any advice? Or has anybody traveled while in WD?
