  1. Hi, I've yet to do my full signature story, but need to ask this quickly as I'm worried I'm in a time race here. Is it possible I've not been on Mirtazapine long enough to need to do a slow taper? Roughly three and a half weeks on 15 mg - was on 30 for four days last week but cut back down to 15 the last 3 days. Do I move fast now to get off it before it takes hold in my brain or is it too late and best to go slow? Thank you.
  2. Hey all, have been lurking for a couple weeks and am in a pretty rough place as to withdrawals. had recently been on fluvoxamine for a long time, roughly 3 years on and off. Managed to quit around March this year with no discernible side effects. Feeling relatively good, OCD(reason I had been taking drugs) was up and down, but life was good. Family was unaware I had stopped, kept telling them I was taking the dosage even when I wasn’t. One family me ever was insistent that it was the be all end all and that I need to take the medication. To this day I am so angry at the glorification
  3. Hi there, I'm new to the forum and wanted to say hi. I've been on Fluvoxamine for 16 years. I've also been on lots of other medication due to a traumatic event that happened a few years ago which caused a lot of stress. So I've been on benzos, migraine blockers, vertigo tablets, other antidepressants / anxiety tablets, etc. However currently I'm only on Fluvoxamine and trying to get off it. I was in hospital for the recent taper and felt okay during it, however since I've gotten out I've had extreme headaches, vertigo, lethargy, sore eyes and ir

  6. Hi everyone, I’ve read this site for a number of months and I wanted to tell you all how helpful it has been. I’m a happily married father of two and I am starting down the path of weaning of Luvox. Here’s my med history: 2005- Post-college I was diagnosed by a GP as having Generalized Anxiety Disorder and a Panic Disorder. I took Lorazepam every evening for 3 years and didn’t do the research to understand how dangerous that was. I got off of them cold turkey and you can imagine how that went. 2008- After finally getting off Lorazepam, my GP prescribed me Zoloft,
  7. Hello, and many thanks to this website for being so informative! I only wish that I had known about this site a few years ago (or even a few months ago). Here is why - My 19 year old daughter is, I believe, now going through Bupropion withdrawal. It's hard to know for sure because a virus *could* be partly to blame. Either way, she is too out of it to be her own advocate right now so I am trying to learn as much s possible so that I can best help her. My daughter began taking Bupropion (150mg) in the summer of 2016 for pretty severe depression. In the winter of 2017,

  10. Hi everyone, I`m new here and for abroad with not very great English - so excuse me for any of my mistakes... I`m reducing my dose of Fevarin from 50 mg to 37,5 mg. It`s only third day right now. My question is if I can use any herbs and f.e. ginseng to help myself during this prosses? Can it go easier this way? Would it be safe?
  11. Happy Holidays! My name's Mike and I'm 40 and I've been taking SSRI's for OCD/anxiety/depression most of my adult life, save for between 2003 to 2009. Since 2009, after years of doing quite well, I crashed and ended up back on fluvoxamine. The drug seemed to help more in the beginning, but as time went on I've increasingly lamented my loss of libido and what I feel are very dampened emotions. Even on 25mg., my current dose, I'm still missing my full range of emotions and feelings. I've been tapering for about 9 months now: Under the care of a psychiatric nurse, I've slowly reduced my dose
  12. Admin note: link to benzo forum thread - Pattypan: Benzo Taper when it's only PRN Hello, I am new here. I have a diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive DIsorder- I have had this for as long as I can remember. I was first medicated for it ( in my teens) 20+ years ago. I was on and off meds throughout my teens/20's. In 2015- I had an OCD "episode" that scared me to death and back on medications I went. After a few trial and errors I was stable on Lexapro for 4.5 years. I recently took myself down from 30mg to 20mg ( over the course of 1 week- yes- i had headaches, involuntary mov
  13. So this whole disaster started when I was in high school. I had been recently diagnosed with ADD, and was prescribed Retalin (a form of Adderall [for you Americans], and a sh*tty one at that). Before long I started having tachycardia, lack of appetite , I was jumpy and irritated and and was not fun at all. Now, the same neurologist, (as I believe he was) who prescribed me the drug, didn't not prepare me for all of this; the bastard didn't even scheduled a follow-up appointment or something, and didn't inform that there are other drugs at this family of drugs and if I develop any of the symptom

    Hi! I am also a pp refugee. I am a 30 something y o woman from Tennessee. I am a nurse, wife, and mother. I also have been fighting the good fight with withdrawal for several years. My signature tells the story. I am currentlydown to 10.9 mg of luvox, which is supposed to be equivalent to approx 2 mg of paxil. I am so glad this site exists, support is tremendously important during this. I have family that loves me and knows that I am going through this, but no one understands like those going through. So glad to see familiar faces, so to speak. So glad that I could keep my support f
  16. Hello everyone. Although I feel like maybe I'm not as bad as many many people here, I would still like to share my story, since I have been through some suffering lately. Hope I don't bother you. Tl;dr: When I reinstated Luvox I started having depression, terrible feelings of hopelessness, dread and doom, no joy in activities or life in general, lack of purpose or meaning in life, and no love for my boyfriend, which troubles me the most. I never had depression before. Wondering if it was the Luvox and starting to taper, but afraid... So it all began when I was 9 years old. I starte
  17. For someone on 50mg of fluvoxamine for only 2 months, would the 10% rule still be sufficient? Or is that for people who've been on an SSRI much longer?
  18. I'm having a hard time taper off 2.5 mg of zyprexa. I went every other day for 7 days then quit taking it and only managed to go two nights before insomnia and anxiety kicked in. I'm on zyprexa for sleeping anyway, is there hope for me getting off this drug?
  19. Hi, I've been on and off every antidepressant for the last 22 years . I started antidepressants when I was 13 because my parents are pill freaks and I was being bullied in school and not happy about it. I've taken every antidepressant ever made and gone off most of them very rapidly. Over the years my insomnia, anxiety, and depression have gotten so severe I can't even function or see straight. I have trouble focusing my eyes. The fatigue is overwhelming and I only sleep 3 to 5 hours total a night. I took a break from meds for the last 1 year and 3 months from all meds and none of my problems
  20. Hi, I have been taking the generic Luvox CR (Fluvoxamine ER) 100mg every night for years--the cost is ridiculous and I would like to taper off ....it is in capsule form. Has anyone successfully tapered off of this drug? This is the extended release form, and only available in 100mg and 150mg capsules. Thanks!
  21. Hi, I quit 50 mg of Luvox in February of 2016 and ever since my nose runs constantly. Has anyone else quit antidepressants and had a similar reaction? Why does this happen? I know antidepressants do act on histamine somewhat, but I wouldn't assume they effect histamine enough to prevent allergy symptoms.
  22. I am 42 years old. I vent to the doctor with chronic headache,he prescribed me Luvox (Fluvoxamine) 200 mg/day, 1.plus 5mg Xanax/day. I had been taking these for 8 years. In 2016 april i got tolerance for luvox. For the doctor recommendation started tapering the drug and came off in 4 months but during this time i had burning sensation in my intestine. I had really serious withdrawal-symptoms like dizziness,hypersensitivity,depression,tinnitus,insomnia,arthritis,etc. My symptoms are like PAWS. While i was coming down from luvox i had withdrawal-symptons for xanax ,because luvox makes xanax
  23. Hi! I'm Britt777. I joined this site to figure out what is causing me numerous symptoms. Here is my brief story: Took Lexapro for about 3 years or more, came off of it Tried Trintillex and Brintillex, didn't like the way it made me feel Doctor then tried Fluvoxamine 100mg and took that for 7 months. He decided to add Wellbutrin (Bupropion XL 150mg) along with it. A month later I ask to stop Fluvoxamine (Luvox) because I felt like I was experiencing "depersonalization" or pretty much felt like life was not real and was a dream. So, at that appointment he told me to stop the Fluv
  24. Hello, I am a 29 year old male who struggles with panic, anxiety, and depression. I've always been an anxious child (choking phobia episode in 2nd grade in which I only ate baby food for a period of time) but it did not become disabling or diagnosed a disorder until the end of high school when I was getting panic attacks in class and not know what was happening to me. After about a year of not knowing what was going on and suffering immensely I was finally diagnosed with Panic Disorder and put on Lexapro in 2005. Once on Lexapro I felt absolutely incredible, as if I was a new person. It was
  25. I am trying to find my way to a medication free life. I am currently on 50mg of Fluvoxamine and have not been able to get lower without significant problems. I am worried about how much to share. I have spent 12 years on a variety of medication, with worsening symptoms and new problems. I was a "good" patient, I followed their advice and their prescriptions. It didnt work. My story is long, complicated and painful. I would like to communicate with others who understand. Chirstmas day 2015, I discharged from a psychiatric hosptial. My medications at that point were - Lyrica 150mg, Fluvoxami
