  1. I joined this forum last June before I began an unsuccessful taper from Celexa, however, this is my first post. I honestly had no idea until then how horrific untethering from these substances is, and how devastating it can be long term. What I really need is some good news. Is there any good news in the midst of this real-life horror story? Right now I feel completely alone. I haven't found a medical practitioner to forge a partnership for helping me discontinue successfully--or even reach the psych NP who prescribed my meds for a change when things went really wrong. So, there is
  2. Hello Everyone! I feel like I am joining this community as part of the "last mile" of my journey to finally kick these SSRI in the teeth and I am excited to share and interact with everyone. At the same time, I'm incredibly scared as my support system (excluding my wife) doesn't believe that I should be off meds. I am from a family of physicians and my psychiatrist is very stuck in the "chemical imbalance" theory, as is my family. Yup... just like everyone else I started getting medicated as a kid as part of the ADHD brigade, and then I was diagnosed with OCD (whi
  3. Cigarettes at age 11. Alcohol periodically from age 13 to age 30. Valium episodically from age 18 to age 27. I have been on myriad anti-depressants since 1982 for major depression and generalized anxiety. Imipramine, desyrel, ativan. Off drugs from 1984 till 1995. Started Prozac 1995 till 2014 (did well from 1995 to 2011). Tried Wellbutrin, Cymbalta. Abilify and Trintellix from March 2014 till August 8, 2017 (depression free). Had to withdraw due to cervical dystonia and tremors which still persist. Terrible experience withdrawing from Abilify and Trintellix. Started Wellbutrin 150 mg. an
  4. Hi all, This is an amazing forum! I am so grateful for the years of knowledge accumulated here. It has given me the confidence and the reassurance that tapering is the right thing to do and that I will need all the patience I can get! My question: I am trying to slowly switch from 15mg Trintellix in pill form to a homemade liquid suspension (just in water). I am currently prescribed 10mg and 5mg pills. To be cautious, I have only dissolved 5mg in water, and I continue to consume the 10mg in pill form. I started this on Nov 22 and began to experience insomnia: difficulty f
  5. Hi, Came across this website trying to find others who've gone through withdrawal and experienced skin issues during the process. I took 5mg Trintellix medication for the last two years which worked wonders for me. Though, due to financial circumstances and having a shingles outbreak, I had to stop taking the medication cold turkey. My Dr. did blood work and everything came out fine. Chalked my shingles outbreak due to excessive stress. Over the last month and half that I've stopped the medication I've gone through crying spells, anxiety, ins
  6. I’ve been on antidepressants for 25 years. Recently started Latuda and weaned off Trintellix over a month while starting Latuda. (Trintellix 20mg daily decreased by 15mg for 7 days, 10mg for 7 days, then 5mg for 7 days) After being on Latuda for almost a month (Latuda 20 mg for 7days, 40mg for 7 days, 60mg for 3 days. A lot of restlessness on 60mg so dose decreased to 40mg. Felt great for about 6 days then suddenly got extreme restlessness and felt like I was going crazy. My doctor had me stop Latuda immediately. Now after 2 days I’m on no antidepressants or antipsychotic medic
  7. Hello, I would like to ask what i should do with my mirtazapine tapering. I started mirtazapine about 10 months ago with dose of 7.5 mg for sleep. I have tried multiple times to quit it cold turkey and i haven't succeed with this kind of method. My doctor prescibed me Trintellix (Vortioxetine) for depression 10 mg/daily which i ate for 13 days and i didn't see any benefit from it during that short period of time. When i started Trintellix i just stopped mirtazapine cold turkey and i slept ok and anxiety was manageable but at day 6 on trintellix + mirtazapine cold turkey withdrawal i exper
  8. Hello. I have been taking 10mg of Trintellix for about a year or year and a half. I am having cognitive problems (among other things) and processing information is becoming increasingly difficult. I write software, so this is becoming a major problem for me, to the point that I can barely do my work. I have to be able to think clearly and solve problems. Just now, I was barely able to decide which animal sings, a fish or a bird, in the registration form. I am confident that it is due to the medication and would like to stop taking it. My doctor suggested reducing the dose by half, but a collea
  9. Hi I took last dose of seroquel on 12/31/19 and now have insomnia. I've titrated down from 20 mg to 5mg of Trintellix and 15 mg to 5mg of lorazepam. That's the last of the drugs. I have residual tinnitus from going off Effexor too fast 20 years ago. Now I have 4-alarm ringing in left ear from Lamotrigine withdrawal. I know there's no cure for the tinnitus - so am going to ENT specialist next week for hearing tests and to look into use of new hearing aid to mask noise. I had cut the 5mg lorazepam in half - but was only getting about 2-3 hours of sleep, so I'm back up to the 5mg. I'm 72 and ha
  10. Hi. I am a 39 year old female with a history of major depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, excoriation disorder, PMDD, and PTSD. Took Zoloft from 2014 thru 2018. Switched to 20mg Trintellix in March 2018. Had two suicidal episodes in Feb 2017 and Feb 2018 (2nd prompted the switch). Trintellix helped greatly with anxiety, suicidal ideation, motivation, and cognition. Had mild GI discomfort for 1st few weeks that resolved with taking the med before bed. Fatigue and emotional blunting became noticeable in Summer 2019. Fatigue got significantly worse
  11. My Gemini scale arrived this week with a set of glass graduated cylinders. I've read that the transition from solid to liquid dosing can be a little hairy. Can anyone help with suggestions for making the switch? Am currently taking ~8mg, in pieces, with a glass of water. I would like to be dosing completely in liquid form by the time my dose gets down to 5 mg in a few months. Should I just start dissolving all 8mgs now, or divide the dose into liquid and solid portions. If so, is there any ratio I should be targeting? I also have 00 gelatin capsules that I can fill with solid porti

  13. After 6 weeks on Trinnelix at 10 mg the neurological type sensations have been insane. I am 3 months in dealing with this now. Worst part is I don't know if any of what I experienced was due to a bad reaction to the ssris or some underlying condition that was brewing already inside me. All I know 6 weeks in on trinnelix and I'm in a hospital with muscle enzyme breakdown called rhabdomyalysis. SSRIs can be a cause but so can some crazy neurological muscular disease among other things. I had to cave in and went on zoloft 0.5 mg to be increased to 0.25mg and clorazapam 0.5 mg last week as in my
  14. Hello everyone, Short history: I have a long history of On/Off misc. antidepressant use for various periods, icluding SSRIs & SNRIs and atypicals. In previous times, when I went off medication I didn't experience withdrawal but I guess that this bombardment of my brain with various chemicals left it scarred and vulnerable. My first withdrawal occured when I went off 150mg of Effexor XR (Venlafaxine). I took it for only 2 months (July-August 2015) and I experienced withdrawal over the course of 6 months (September 2015 - February 2016), in which I was pretty much disab
  15. Hi guys, sorry this may be a long post, I think it is okay to share my story on this. I am 21 years old, a college student about to graduate, and I have been on an SSRI for about 5 years now. I was diagnosed with ADHD and GAD when I was about 12, I have always been somewhat anxious and had issues with regulating my emotions. In 2013 my girlfriend broke up with me and I was really sad and feeling hopeless. After a few months of being down and also anxious, my doctor (pediatrician) decided to put me on 5mg of Lexapro. The Lexapro seemed to help (I think?) and I recovered somewh
  16. Hey everyone, I’m hopeful this site can help me figure out what to do or how to even cope. I’m a 37 year old, successful salesman, an extrovert, generally positive individual. I’ve always had anxiety as a big part of my life and also struggle with just excessive worrying. I was out on Paxil while in college around the year 2000. I was having major anxiety and depression with dealing with being gay and the 40mg of Paxil seemed to do the trick. Long story short, 17 years have passed and i had a bit of a rough year dating this year, and a doc decided to put m
  17. Hi, I found this site after watching the you tube video. I have been very concerned about the foggy headed feeling I always have. I also can't remember things unless I write them down. I also have blunted emotions and low libido. And even though I'm taking Trintellix I still feel depressed. It does control my anxiety and my running mind. I call it ruminating. I would really like to be off this medicine but after exploring this site I realize it's not going to be easy. I'm debating on when to start my taper because I have a couple of big events coming up. I have a family wedding in May and a b
  18. I was on 5mg of Trintellix for a little over a month to treat negative thoughts/mild depression. I had dealt with some anxiety before but stemming from rumination, not creating major physical symptoms. After a while on the trintellix I had a panic attack unlike anything I had ever had before. It really scared me. My psychiatrist said “hmm, that’s weird” stay on it if you can, so I did. The next couple weeks I actually felt pretty good. The trintellix gave me some space from my negative thinking. But then I had a couple more panic attacks and decided I was done with it - the panic was way worse
  19. ADMIN NOTE Please read this entire topic for tips about tapering vortioxetine. There are many reports on the Web about withdrawal symptoms from vortioxetine, despite their being overlooked by drug companies. Vortioxetine appears to have a withdrawal syndrome similar to almost all the antidepressants and should be tapered slowly to avoid severe or prolonged withdrawal symptoms. See Why taper by 10% of my dosage? According to https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/vortioxetine#section=Top According to https://www.drugs.com/pro/br
  20. Hello! About two months ago I have stopped taking Celexa (20mg) and Wellbutrin (150XR) and started Trintellix (5mg). For the first week, it was like a miracle. I was super clear and felt really balanced (not manic or just "better") then the itching started. If I don't take an antihistamine it is unbearable, but I really wanted this relief to continue so I figured it was a small price to pay. Unfortunately, over the last month I have developed vision and stomach issues, agitation, pain, swelling and numbness in my hands, arms, feet, major muscle spasms and a general feeling of dis

    Touchtheclouds87 off Paxil

    I was on Paxil for 6 years. The doctor took me from 40mg to 0mg in 8 weeks. I had to get off it because I was so depressed about sexual dysfuntion. Had a psychotic episode followed by the most horrendous depression and acute anxiety. Had to go back on paxil for a year. Then switched to lithium then switched to lamotrigine. I came off paxil the second time over a 6 month period and it was OK. No major withdrawal issues. It's just like everybody says come of the meds slowly and it will be OK.
  22. Hey everyone, I'm posting this in a relatively scared/anxious state. I've been doubting every day whether this will actually ever get better, and the thought of this lasting for the rest of my life is terrifying. So, my background: I took Trintellix 10 mg (started at 5 mg for a week, then increased) for about 2.5 months. It also has gone by the names Brintellix and vortioxetine. My psychiatrist at the time said that I didn't have to taper off, since it says in the accompanying informational booklet that there's no possibility of adverse effects when discontinuing such a
  23. I'm 32, I have a 6 year old, and I've decided I want to have another child finally. My GYN says, when you find out you're pregnant, just quit taking your medications. Wtf? I've been on wellbutrin xl, metoprolol, a beta blocker for heart rate associated with anxiety, and random benzos for about 5 years. I've been on and off of zoloft, which was rough. I take trazodone at night for sleep. And I've been on trintellix for a while now also, and I'm up to 20mg. Lately I've been so lethargic and having a hard time with any task, even getting dressed, brushing my teeth, much less actually cleaning up.
  24. Hi Courageous ones. I'm happy and frightened to be here. I'm new, 56, not tech or math savvy. Dx 1986 Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Major Depressive Episodes. Prescribed Xanax for 30 years beginning 1/4 mg 3 times per day as needed and ending prescription 1 mg/ day as needed. The highest dose I ever too was 1/2 mg, three times a day but always at least 1/2 mg per day towards the end, then hit suddenly stopped working, was taken off, experienced severe PAWS for 3 weeks and psychiatrist then put me on Klonapin 1mg, twice a day which I take faithfully and have been on for
