    Recovery Success Stories from Around the Web

    Shea Carney From Paxilprogress, a now defunct site It's been a long time since I posted in the general discussion section of this forum. When I visit PaxilProgress, it is generally to answer private messages about how I am doing today. Have I completely recovered? I have received a great many inquiries, so I thought it best to post an update about how I am and what I've been up to. I want to pay forward the hope I gleaned from this site. I feel a great deal of respect and gratitude toward those who keep this site up and running because had I not been a part of this forum, wherein I could communicate with others who truly understood what I was going through, I can honestly say, I don't think I would have made it. I wish I could tell you I visit the site more than just sporadically, but, to be frank, I do my best to avoid pondering the experience, as the trauma still lingers in so much as the memories can stir dormant feelings of loss and disbelief at what occurred. I wish I could say discussing the subject didn't evoke strong emotion; that I could further distance myself from the abyss, but I am not there as of yet. I find myself in tears, at times, when I read emails from individuals who are suffering so terribly, as I once did. How do you tell someone it might take 2 years to feel human again, three years to start building a new life for yourself and 5-7 years to begin to sleep with some regularity? This was my experience, and by no means does it follow that everyone will take the same path to recovery, however, it was my experience and to convey this possibility is daunting at best. The good news is there is life after Paxil, even after a prolonged, severe discontinuation experience. Good life. You can come through this horror and thrive if given enough time. I am not completely unscathed; I deal with lowered stress tolerance (I am generally more reactive than I used to be) and an aversion to all conventional medicinals, save Tylenol and God bless it, as it got me through my last pregnancy. Mylanta has also been a pal, and I was able overcome my fears and accept that pitocin and an epidural was a necessity (at least for me) during labor and delivery. I cannot say I am surprised by my special brand of hypervigilance. My trauma involved trusting doctors and taking a medication I knew virtually nothing about. Today I ask A LOT of questions, fervently research, weigh the risks vs. the benefits (of any med prescribed to myself or family members) and do my best to cope with whatever somataform physical response occurs when I (or someone I love) try something new, be it over the counter or prescription. This new normal is directly related to my experience and, IMHO, not such a bad thing. If doctor's think I'm nuts, so be it. I endeavor to protect myself and those I love from making the same mistake I did. Always be informed. So there's the downside. Now on to the good stuff. I have two healthy, beautiful children that I love without measure and there was a time that I wasn't sure I'd ever feel love again or anything positive for that matter. I find that now I want to live life to the fullest everyday; some days I don't even want to go to bed because I want to savor the beauty of the moment....the feelings associated with a deep appreciation for those things I had once taken for granted.....the feeling of deep relaxation that comes with lying in the sun or taking a warm bath. The sense of wonder and joyful anticipation of taking a trip cross country or even to Disneyland...just being able to get up and go to new and exciting places. Not feeling sick all the time. Watching my children learn a grow is endlessly rewarding and fascinating. This is not to say I do not have my dark moments. I lost a great deal during the recovery period. Once in a while I find myself mourning the highly ambitious, carefree person I used to be, but that person took a lot of things for granted and perhaps lacked a bit in empathy and understanding of others. I am forever changed by the experience and grateful that I am able to grasp what is truly important in life. I have abundant blessing in that regard. AND I sleep 7-8 hours a night most nights. What a miracle. I lived for so long with only sleeping sporadically and then 4-6 hours per night was a "good night." Usually broken sleep to boot. Sleep is a beautiful thing and I cannot tell you how thankful I am that this essential aspect of my being has returned to me. When I wake up in the morning and see that it's 8am...that I'm not up at 3am for a couple of hours and unable to fall back asleep.....I smile and give thanks for such a blessing that I am rested and can enjoy the time I have with my family. I take vitamins & minerals (magnesium, a multi, vitamin D3, selenium, & inositol), a good probiotic, fish oil, and a couple bioidentical hormones (melatonin occasionally and progesterone cream regularly), which I think have added greatly to my general health and well being. These are not quick fixes by any means, and I was not able to tolerate all of these substances early on in my recovery, but, in the longterm, I believe they have been of great benefit. I work part time and completed a documentary about my experience. It premiered at the San Antonio Film Festival over the summer and, God and wallet willing, we will participate in additional festivals. You have to pay to enter each festival and with my stepdaughter attending college in Paris, two little ones, and the current economic climate, we do what the wallet dictates. So this is where I find myself today, far removed from the person who wanted to die every second or every day for so long. That poor individual who could not feel love or enjoyment in life; only fear and searing pain. I was broken, but I am here to tell you that you can put the pieces together again. You will no longer be the same, but you will learn to greatly appreciate the gifts you have been given in life when they return. I remember when I couldn't leave the house. Last summer I went camping...in the rain....slept in.....such a beautiful thing. I sincerely hope this update gives those of you who are suffering hope that you too will recover. Just give yourself enough time. And try not to identify with what you are feeling. It is not you. No matter how real it feels, it is a manifestation of an injured central nervous system and you can and will heal in time.
  2. I was able to use that Way Back Machine thingy..and actually find a post in pp where i commented and found my tapering in my siggie...it only went up to December 2013..so i guessed at the first dates of the months for the last few... 3rd attempt at withdrawal going slow..compounded pills Taper: 05/27/2010 - 03/12/12: Tapered From 20mgs - 6.2 (2years) 04/11/2012 - 6.0 - 3.4 - 05/05/2013 (Third year into Taper) 06/04/2013 - 3.2 07/04/2013 - 3.0 08/03/2013 - 2.8 09/03/2013 - 2.6 10/04/2013 - 2.4 11/03/2013 - 2.2 12/04/2013 - 2.0 01/03/2014 -1.8 02/02/2014 -1.6 03/01/2014 - 1.4 04/01/2014 - 1.2 05/01/2014 - 1.0 PAXIL FREE JUNE 01 2014
  3. WiggleIt, I was surprised when I saw your thread. There were countless success stories on PP from rapid tapers and cold turkeys. I don't recall anyone actually posting a "success story" per se until very recent years though. I was very worried and thought I was an exception who would not recover, after joining PP in 2007, almost a year after my last dose from a much-too-fast taper off paxil. At that time, normal recovery on PP was considered to be 12 months, possibly as long as 18 months. And the 10% taper was something one person was trying as an experiment after repeated failures to be able to go off faster,and not what anyone else on AD sites had done. At almost one year off, I was in the worst of withdrawal, and that continued for me beyond the one-year point. Anything beyond one year was termed "protracted withdrawal" and newbies especially would freak out if anyone mentioned their withdrawal was lasting that long. A thread started for protracted withdrawal1 yr+ was frowned upon but tolerated. Requests for a success stories section or thread were repeatedly refused on that site. (It was only many years later that some "success stories" were collected in some threads, and by that time most members were gone or rarely posted, and newer members were or had been tapering by the 10% method.) I am personally familiar with many, if not most, of the cases cited from PP in the thread about success stories from other sites, and most of them are from people who c/t'd (cold-turkeyed) or tapered very quickly, though their history is not given in those posts. Recovery from cold turkeys or too-fast tapers either are brief or relatively uneventful, in which case people don't generally think to seek out withdrawal groups, or can be slow, although - I cannnot overemphasize this - do not remain at the early severity for the duration, and this group (SA) is new enough (and deliberately started very small, with a membership consisting specifically of people in protracted withdrawal) that most people who went off quickly are still recovering, albeit with many of us having had substantial improvement. I think most members of this group, especially those who post actively, are doing slow tapers, or joined too recently to have recovered from their too-fast tapers or c/t's yet. There are many other considerations to bear in mind. And many reasons why many, probably most people, don't post success stories. (I am one who has never done that.) The reasons are not what you'd think, and may alleviate a lot of people's needless worries. I have drafted a post about why people don't post success stories (based on many years in withdrawal groups and having corresponded with countless people privately.) I want to proofread it later (something I should always, but only very rarely do!). I will post it in this section of the site soon.
  4. Wiggleit, I'm so sorry for your suffering. I quit cold turkey after 2.5 years of 40 mg paxil. WD was hell, my physical suffering was diminishing after a few months and after about a year it was mostly emotional/psychological suffering. Don't give up hope, you're on a healing journey that takes time. Send me a pm any time.

    Recovery Success Stories from Around the Web

    An update from Wallflower from Paxilprogress, a now defunct site Hello, Some of you may recognise my name, but I have to admit I've not been on here much at all for some time. I am sorry for this as this place was a lifesaver for me, as I have been very, very poory with paxil withdrawal. Coupled with a change in job which meant less access to the internet and a decision to minimise my time spent thinking too much about WD I have not been around. I am going to start by saying thanks to everyone who responded to my posts, there are people who have been so supportive and understanding, even when in difficulty themselves. So thank you!!!! So an update after 2 years. I would say I'm 80% recovered and that for me is absolutely amazing as cold turkey rendered me totally emotionally and physically in peices. I had more or less every symptom and associated with seroxat withdrawal syndrome. I don't need to convince you guys, but it was unadulturated hell. Don't cold turkey if you're thinking about it. It is not mind over matter. It is endurance which is dangerous and I had so much support from family, friends and professionals. Ok, I think you get the point - sorry. Even when I talk about it now, I get lost in it. Anyway, back the present - I am living, I am laughing, I am free and in relatively good health. I am able to generally cope with what life throws at me. It has taken so much personal rehabitation - from exercise, meditation, CBT, talking and grit and determination. So there is hope! I am a better person from the experience and I like the person I am now. So never give up hope that life will improve. I know you'll read it again and again here, but I really never thought my brain would recover, but it certainly is getting there. However, I have to say my memory (both short and long term) and cognitive functioning, including concentration is not great. My sleep is erratic and I have many ADHD-like symptoms. All of which are noticable and commented on. I am not complaining about this, but I feel I need to acknowledge these challenges. I have had to learn to live with it and hope that things will continue to improve. I also occasionally have head-shocks and vibrations, but rarely. I have to tell you I suffer from depression and anxiety disorders too. I did before seroxat, when I was on it and after it. I always bear that in mind and I do not blame everything on seroxat withdrawal. I'm hopeful about improvements in this area too. Anyway, I could go on and on, but you can read my previous posts to see how desperate I have been. I thought cold turkey would be bad for a short time, I never thought I would step into a personal hell that would last for months and still challenge me today. I am not fully recovered, but I believe I will and you will too. Take care of yourself, slow and steady, be your own best friend and when you can't go on, keep going. Thanks again to you all. You are my friends, for life x

    Recovery Success Stories from Around the Web

    WhatisNormal's Update 4/2/11 From Paxilprogress, a now defunct site Adding a dose of positivity I feel like some people might benefit from that right now. I am obviously not on here as much as I used to be. I try to stop by now and again to pay it forward. It so weird in a way to read these threads and have these memories that I was there too and to be so far from that now. It doesn't seem like such a big deal now, even though at the time when I was going through all the craziness it felt like the worst thing ever. I suppose if I really wanted to, I could sit around and dwell on all that I went through. There's obviously no point in doing so. For a while I did feel pretty angry about all that I felt my anxiety and subsequent SSRI use stole from me, but I am finally feeling over that. Life moves forward. I can feel angry and feel like something is owed to me... or I can focus on being happy and going out and getting the things that I want. 'Recovery' isn't a secret magical process that only a few of us can attain. It is about time. It is about acceptance. I went through hell too. I thought it would never end. But then, wow it did. At the beginning of the year I went through my first rough patch post-Paxil... and I came out on the other side of that too. No matter what you are feeling today, realize that it isn't permanent. Even when we are feeling on top of the world, that isn't permanent either (sadly enough). It is a constant ebb and flow. If you're willing to bend with that, even just a little, it will help immensely overall. 3/27/09-09/28/10...40mg to 0mg!!!
  8. On paxil i never went into that deep sleep stage as for some reason that medication does not get you there...so i was always tired on it...and now that i am off, i have had a couple of nights a month where i get that full night sleep..but 95% of the time i am sleeping and dreaming but half awake..cant explain it really..lol..i am just aware while sleeping what is going on ..outside of my sleep...hopefully the farther away i get from being off..this will start to adjust itself..
  9. Thank you, MapleLeafGirl, this topic is just right for a success story. When did the sleep problems start? How have they changed since you've been completely off Paxil?
  10. you will for sure get there:) 6 years is just fine as that is how you need to go...people thought i was crazy to taper that long at 4 but i had to go that slow myself...and i am so glad i did.... I take three magnesium every night so that helps with the initial sleep but i can basically hear what is goign on around me at the same time i am dreaming...i do however a couple of times a month get that full night sleep so that gives me hope that nomal sleep will come in the future at some point:) I did 5% and lower i think:) from 20 -10 i did the dose downs like this: 19.5 ...19...18.5..18...17.5 17...16.5..16..15.5...15..14.5..14...13.5..13..12.5..12..11.5 11. 10.5 ..10 ...first few ones i stayed on for 60 days then once i felt comfortable with my tapering i did 30 days each one.... when i got to 10mgs..everything under that i went each dose like this: 9.8, 9.6, 9.4, 9.2, 9.0, 8.8, 8.6, 8.4, 8.2, 8.0, 7.8, 7.6, 7.4, 7.2, 7.0...and like that all the way down to 1mg..every 30 days i only ever used compounded pills ..my doctor wrote all my prescriptions for those doses every 3 months i would go and get 3 months of prescriptions for each of the doses...and then took those to my compounding pharmacy:) it made it so easy..to just take the capsul everday, i didnt have to meaure out liquid paxil ect..or cut pills myself:)
  11. Hi Michele, I wish you could hear me cheering for you from Australia! Thank you for sharing your story and the keys to your success, slowly, slowly, gently, gently. Well done. I know what you mean by paxil sleep. I find I have deeper more restorative sleep when I take a combination of magnesium and taurine Dalsaan
  12. One member last year sent me this list ...i pin these kind of lists to the wall Light - 17 years on various drugs -last 6 years of them pollydrugged - 10 years off now 70% recovered Musicman - 12 years on paxil, also on steroids for 11 years. 10 years off still bad, but akathisia resolved and other problems getting better finally Healing - 12 years on antidepressants - 9 years off slowly getting better, mostly recovered Squirrel - 8 years - 9 years off, mostly recovered, still has very mild DR/DP, slight dizziness from time to time, anxiety and sinus problems. Nothing major Tryingtogetwell- 8 years off, recovered at 7 years off Alto - 10 years free - recovered, has minor sleep issues Also a member in a bad way who talked to Shipko [Dr. Stuart Shipko] was given this encouraging info..which they shared with me .....i think its ok to share this (i dont think this is a breach of privacy..then again maybe it is...i hope not ..i'm unable to contact the person directly to get permission.....i'm sure a mod will advise me.) "Your letter indicates that you are looking for hope. There is indeed hope. I never followed six patients for 7 years. Rather, there were three patients who did significantly improve after about 7 years. There were no patients followed for 7 years who did poorly. My experience is not the only information on the subject. I have spoken to people who tell me that they improve even after longer than 7 years. Do not despair. Rather, do what you can to promote good health - proper diet, exercise as tolerated, etc." I think Shipko is great. Here is a list put together on another site, there are people in this list taking over 5 yrs to recover. Not sure if this list is encouraging as not that many names over 5 yrs but even one or two gives hope right? rubberduckie - 3 years no fears - 2.5 years areoman - 4 years jonno - 2 years dottie - 6 years mightywarrier - 2.5 years blankets 2/3 years llhh - 3 years marebear - 3 years paxhell - 3 years akenew - 3-5 years hopeful 2.5 years saiff - 16 months wallflower - 2 years for 80% lov4k9 - 18 months banjodan - 2 years hope -- 5 years shea carney 3-7 years rickyjohnson - 3 years zoloftfree - 3-5 years SCHNAUZERPOWER - 2 years nolex - 3 years expaxman - 2 years nicoasg - 3 years whatisnormal - 2 years lossleader - 4.5 years WURSTBROT - 2.5 years EDROPHIS - 3 years goldenbawls - 2.5/3 years __________________

    Recovery Success Stories from Around the Web

    No-Fears 2 year update 5/14/11 From Paxilprogress, a now defunct site I haven't been on this website for quite a while, but just wanted to do an update. It has been about 2 years and 4 months since i stopped taking paxil. I can say that things have improved for me, i have no dizziness any more and the brain fog has improved a lot, my energy levels have improved slightly, but still room for a lot of improvement (probably have long term battle fatigue). My eyes are less sensitive to sunlight, computer screens, bright lights etc... I still have periods of feeling low and there is defo a pattern to that (feel worse during the day, then better at night). I find the things that have really helped have generally been doing things to take my mind off it, i choose only to come on here for information on supplements and not read the other posts because they put worries in my mind. I defo believe that i will fully recover from this and everyone will in time, just need so much patience. good luck to you all
  14. I've been off Paxil for almost 10 years now and I have to agree with this. And maybe that's why I never posted a "success story" at PP, because I never felt 100% recovered. I've always felt that my nervous system never quite bounced back and I am just more sensitive now. I don't think I'll ever be thrown back into withdrawal but something ain't right. Having said that, I do consider myself recovered and fully functional in life. Just not the same person as before. I think if that's the yardstick we use to measure recovery nobody will ever attain it.
  15. As Paxil Progress is closing, I wonder if we could add some of the success stories from that site here? I don't have all of them but I have copied some and could paste them here. If we added some here, this section would be bigger with more stories and this would give people hope.
  16. Hi BC.....this is my first post and I felt compelled to write to you. I am currently living the nightmare you describe in your post. I've been withdrawing from Ativan for the last 10 months and it's nothing short of a miracle that I'm still hanging on. I've successfully tapered from 2mg to .36mg and hope to be benzo-free in the next couple of months. This is a frightening, all encompassing and isolating experience and I have somehow managed to keep my job and family intact. I struggle every single day. Some days more than others. My biggest fear at this point is tapering off my remaining SSRI (Paxil) after this. I see that you were able to taper off Pristique about a year after your benzo withdrawal. Is there any helpful hints you can give me? Did you taper it slowly? Thank you for your success story.
  17. An update - I am now at -48 beads of effexor. 6 wks later than my post up there ^ Was able to slow down the taper as I finally was accepted for coverage in hardship. I am doing ok. Some days are tough. But that is more than likely due to my living situation etc. No severe brain zaps. When on paxil I was suicidal more often than not. Started happening with effexor. I can attest that it is very different now. I do not think about suicide near as much as when I was on full strength. Sad to actually read that part in print. If nothing else, it serves as a warning re what this med did to me. Thinking is pretty clear though I do not have the sensation of - - increased blood pressure to my head. Cannot describe. Some of my memory is foggy. I am optimistic and hope all of you are still holding down the fort
  18. Dear Unfoldingsky I am interested in your story, as i am now 21 months free and still in severe hell. I have severe DR/DP, Memory problems are very severe, i feel confused and dizzy, i dont really konw whats happening around me if you know what i mean. I c/t from 4 years paxil and when trying to reinstate a different drug, had a severe adverse reaction. Im looking for hope. Is 21 months too early? No improvements. Really if the DR/DP would just improve i would be happy. I am worried and scared to death.
  19. Alto, I went off Lexapro too fast, ending in mid-December 2011, but I never reinstated. I've been counting my period of withdrawal from the time I was completely off Lexapro (December 14, 2011), which would be 27 months, as I consider myself having healed when I ditched the magnesium in mid-March of this year. It would be 30 months if I include the period of time when I was speed-tapering and having withdrawal symptoms. I distinctly remember not being able to go to the door when I had some outside work done on my house in October of 2011, and my handyman knocked to ask a question. I thought I had severe hay fever at the time. So now I'd say 30 months is about right. In some ways I think I was fortunate to be put on Lexapro rather than something really awful, like Paxil or Effexor. I think Lexapro is not quite as terrible as most antidepressants. It's still crap, though. The magnesium was making me super-tired and wanting to sleep far more than should be necessary for anyone. I never felt rested and often cancelled out of social events because I felt so lousy. I just assumed the symptoms were due to prolonged withdrawal because moderate depression was one of them. As I said in my post in the magnesium topic (http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/1300-magnesium-natures-calcium-channel-blocker/page-8), I believe the bad effects were due to the combination of my blood pressure meds, a calcium channel blocker, and the Daily Value of magnesium, 400 mg., another calcium channel blocker. (I also discovered that 400 mg. is intended for a man--a woman's dose is about 330 mg. if I remember right) Too much of a good thing, I think. I now feel confident that I can keep my commitments as well as any conscientous, normal person and I'm quite energetic these days, too. As for the writing, I'm not sure when or how to go about that if I ever do, but I really would like to further the cause in some way. I honestly don't remember a lot of what I went through during early to mid withdrawal and don't want to, either. On the other hand, I would dearly love to get back at the medical establishment for all the harm they did to me and are still doing to others, and the specific incompetent, greedy lame-brains who "treated" me. Informing the public seems to be a good way to go. At the present time, I'm doing a one-on-one campaign with a friend who wants to go off Citalopram for the second time and who thinks her doctor knows what she's doing. She cold-turkeyed the first time and couldn't bear the withdrawal symptoms, and so stayed on the drug unecessarily for years. (She was given it for menopause--as if that's some sort of mental illness!) She found the idea of tapering over a year or two shocking, so I guess I'll just have to stand by and be there if she follows her doctor's advice, which will likely be to get off Citalopram in a matter of months, including alternate-day dosing. I've given her SA's URL twice now, and begged her to read a lot here before she does anything at all. So we'll see. As I said before, I don't plan to abandon the forum. I expect there will be quite a few questions about my success story, and always, more people in need of help.
  20. I am now about 6.5 years post-cold-turkey from Paxil/Seroxat and beginning to see the light at the end of a extremely long and dark-black tunnel. Thanks to some circumstances I did survive but without aome crucial support I probably would not be here anymore... But yes, I feel close to healed though still not free of some nasty symptoms. And after having been unempoyed for about 6 years, I am planning to remume work in the near future. Tapering the right way would probably have saved me from this utter misery but that knowledge came too late for me. So I survived, just as the rest of us here. But OMG what a unbelievable long and dark journey. But still thankful for the (almost) recovery and heading for the rest of my drug-free life!
  21. Everyone reading this has survived of course. As far as who has 'survived' and is completely off Rx and in terific health I am not sure, probably no one though I hope some replies say otherwise. For me the question is how is my health relative to before Rx and during Rx and what else has happened to me that has affected my health. Remember that we stop taking my medication but the world around us doesn't stop and wait for us to get better. I was exposed to stachybotrys and aspergillus fungi which infected my epithelial tissue -- this exposure and illness has nothing to do with that I took Rx but it complicates the picture for understanding how well am I now relative to the medications. Everyone is like this to some degree. Life goes on and other infections and injuries and so on will continue to happen. You don't live forever once you stop taking paxil.

    Rhi: Incremental success

    philjot, I moved your posts from Rhi's topic to your own Intro topic here http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/4689-philjot-on-lexapro-for-paxil-withdrawal/
  23. Interesting, maybe you were talking about me who was told by C that he was recovered after 7 years. I never knew which drug he had taken, always had assumed it was Paxil/Seroxat but apparently it was Prozac. Not the most notorious in terms of excruciating long-term WD I thought, but obviously it can be just as dangerous.
  24. Yes I rememeber Aeroman, he had a hard time but finally did recover. Also I remember Goldenbawls from the other site, he had horrific w/d from PAxil and recovery pretty quickly after about 3 years. I am no at 4.5 years, an extremely long time but feel that recovery is around the corner. I will post later this year...
  25. I remember reading posts from Aeroman on his journey from Lexapro and he was very inspiring. It was on another site. I sure would love to read Recovery/Success Stories. Alto you have a success story... I have a friend who sucessfully got of Seroxat (Paxil) and is doing well. Said she feels better now then she ever did. Trying to get her to join this site, but she has been drug free for a year. I will ask her to join the site and post her story Hugs
