Thank you for chatting to Amanda167. You should not be reticent about posting as long as you are respectful and follow site rules.

    Good morning Amanda I will leave Alto to answer your questions. You can see from your drug signature thet you have been pretty much varying the doses of 3 drugs during that time. It will take time for your CNS to settle but follows Alto's advice and it will happen. I do have a concern regarding Zopiclone. Your last diary says Zopiclone is prescribed as a sleeping pill and you are driving after taking it. You are also taking Zopiclone at 8.30 pm and not going to bed until midnight, by which time it is 3.5 hrs into its half life and by the early hours ineffective. I was on it for a while and took it 30 mins before bed. You do not need to post diary seperately to Alto just on here. It was just that Alto posted before you did. Hope you are feeling a bit better today. Sassenach
  4. Today
  5. Helllo, Today is fourth day of the switch over. Feeling ok ok. Sometimes low sometimes fine. Let's wait for some more time before I actually know how my body is adapting to it.
  6. Catherine, you know I'm thinking of you. I know moving is such an ordeal while in withdrawal. Try to look ahead to afterward. What an accomplishment this will feel like from the other side!! You are stronger than you realize. I'm in your corner, rooting for you always. You've got this!!
  7. Hannahe, for what it's worth, I completely concur with Alto. You have way too many years ahead of you to spend them in misery. I think you will find DBT or ACT very helpful. You need help to stop obsessing on your symptoms. You must learn how to accept and distract, and while I'm sure that seems impossible to you right now, it is a skill that can be learned. That's why we believe therapy will be so beneficial to you. We very much want you to recover, but we cannot want it more than you do.

  8. Thanks for these, it helps to know I'm not alone.
  9. Hi Catherine, I know how much you’re struggling with such severe akathisia. I have been there myself so my heart really goes out to you. You’ll be moving house soon too, that is such a major accomplishment when you are this sick. If anyone is reading this could you please give Catherine some encouragement, I’m sure she could really do with it right now. I haven’t been on this site much myself because I’m going through lots of stuff unrelated to withdrawals. I feel so much for you Catherine and for everyone on this site. These meds are the most evil things ever. 💚💚💚
  10. Thanks Brassmonkey. I use one for travelling, so I will just increase usage in winter. (It's winter here in South Africa).

    Cannabis, marijuana, THC, and CBD or Hemp oil

    Hello, Yes, Consumer Lab just posted their update on interactions. This is from behind a paywall, but I have re-ordered and retyped it, and it's only a small exerpt: Please note how many of the psych drugs - "mood stabilisers," "antipsychotics," and "antidepressants" are included in this. Taking CBD while going through withdrawal, especially during tapering, could very well alter the dose you are getting. Consumer Lab reports that Kannaway "Revive" was not recommended as it did not contain enough CBD. 0.5% of the oil in the bottle was CBD. Their "Pure Gold" might be stronger, however, if they skimp on one product, they might skimp on their others. It's a wild west of CBD oils, and there are many oils which either a) don't advertise the potency of their product, or b) don't provide the potency that they claim on the label. I would posit that Kannaway is one of these, and if they do it on one product, I don't trust any of their products. Yes. These supplements are expensive! A subscription to Consumer Labs is not. You will waste a lot less money if you subscribe to Consumer Labs and follow their reports and recommendations.
  15. Hi Sassenach, Hope you are doing well. Yes I started from scratch on a laptop. When I first put up my signature I was using a cell phone. Could this be why it won’t update my signature? I read a thread on here that using a cell phone isn’t the best way to navigate this forum. I appreciate your help. Best wishes, Anthony

    Hi Amanda167, Hope you’re feeling well. Yes I’m still on Paxil unfortunately. I don’t know why but I assumed you were new to this site and new to withdrawals. Didn’t mean to talk to you like you didn’t know anything. I just want to help. If you ever need to talk I’m here. I hope the best for you and your son. Best wishes, Anthony

    manny03: withdrawal from Trintellix

    I thought also I'd be done with it after a year. though, were still here. With Sedation, I don't have anyone to take me to the colonoscopy, plus I don't want to be sedated seeing how some Drs mess up. I just want to be done with it, and leave. I hate being in Hospitals. Just get it done and go home.
  18. Anxiety, massive fatigue, headaches, tinnitus and anhedonia today sucked. But I know it will get better.

    manny03: withdrawal from Trintellix

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. Yup. Most of the time after three days that's when I discover if my gut has heal itself and I'm able to eat foods that I became sensitive to due to W/Ds. Though, with others its within minutes after finishing a meal I discover if I'm good to go, or have to cut again. When the G.I. /mental symptoms occur. It's weird. In my case it feels like my mind/brain or external sources are triggering my gut. I'll just give you an idea what's happening now. For example, today. When I got into the car, turned on the engine, and drove...something in the engine rumble triggered my g.i. with cramps...which is weird...that Kinda goes with the idea it's my nervous system being loco LMAO! I got to the store. It calm itself down. Then, suddenly I saw a large group of people. Then, it began to occur again. This time it was trapped gas cramps. Then, came across a young mother with two children who has cancer. That's when I had my last cramp, then my G.I. shut off and the mental symptoms began to occur with the intrusive thoughts...though mines are bordering auditory hallucinations (I asked to be tested to see if I had schizophrenia and thankfully I don't have the main symptoms) were my thoughts or voices taunt me telling me that I have cancer, and I'm going to die. That's you in a couple of weeks bald with welts. The thoughts or taunts sound like smirks, shriks, laughs. I literally wanted to scream out loud to my mind to shut up or wish I bashed my head against a window to stop it all. Hence, why I mention these symptoms are scary. After that, I ate a meal I had some electrical activity in my g.i. when I began to eat, then it went away. Though, before I went to the Specialist the aches and pains were at a 7-8. Now, its at a 1-3.
  20. I wish you the best of luck during your withdrawal process. My story is very similar. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. You CAN do this!
  21. I see that you're a year out in this thing. Mine was at the end of May in 2018 so I'm a year out also. I thought I'd be a lot further than this myself but I have probably expected more than I should have. The good thing is I've had a chance to change my diet and my lifestyle and way of thinking so I feel like I've progressed all around. I think that's what matters in the end. I was reading a little bit back in one of your post and you were talking about having to be sedated. When I was sedated it was a drug called Propofol and no benzo. I was worried but when I got home I took a three-hour nap and it felt like I was asleep for a week. There was no After Effects whatsoever only positive

    manny03: withdrawal from Trintellix

    To be frank, if it weren't the for the G.I. symptoms, the intrusive thoughts, or slight off balance sensation (its a 1.5 out of 10) I feel like I'm almost out of it. That's how drastic the recovery has been ever since I went to the Specialist. I try to listen to music, watch movies, listen podcasts to cut myself from the world. Since I hear something bad, I'm around a large group of people, my entire system goes haywire, I become anxious or have fits of rage that triggers my G.I. and brain and from there the intrusive thoughts occur. Hence, I do my best to avoid any stressful situations.
  23. That's funny you mention that about trying new foods. Every once in a while I'll do that. It takes about 3 days to register. When you're having GI symptoms do you ever feel like you're getting mental symptoms also at the same time with a weird feeling in your gut like it's coming from there? Manny happy late birthday
  24. I'm glad you're doing better. I think your colonoscopy results will help you understand better what's happening also. Understanding what's happening seems to be pretty crucial especially if you're having intrusive thoughts. Music seems to help me quite a bit when I have them. I'll just Loop a song for a while until it starts playing in my head and then off I go LOL How are you doing from your last post presently? Thanks for stopping by man Russ

    manny03: withdrawal from Trintellix

    Tomorrow I'm going attempt and eat some foods and see if it triggers my G.I. since I've noticed that certain sensitivities have gone away. If it goes well, then I thank my lucky stars since I could start losing weight. If not, oh well. I'll just let my brain and gut continue to heal itself. Never thought I'd still be going through this after a year. Though, oh well. Roll with the punches.
