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 movements and brain zaps). As of yesterday I tapered to 15mg. I am feeling pretty bad today... and I understand I should be decreasing by 10% but for some reason that seems unreasonable to me.... ( in the past I have successfully tapered off of prozac, wellbutrin, celexa, zoloft and don't recall any of those being notable- I DO remember tapering off of Luvox was terrible) Any supplements or advice you may have to ease these taper symptoms? My goal is to be completely off of Lexapro in 1 month. Too soon? also- No i am not involving my doctors in this decision or this taper... I just don't trust that they know enough in regards to how to taper and they wont respect my decision to taper. Thanks in advance!
DaddyCee posted a topic in Events, controversies, actionsHi All. Kelly Brogan has a new book ready to come out but a lot of the booksellers are blacklisting it because it puts "big pharma" in a very bad light. The book can be pre-ordered here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mind-Your-Own-Depression-Reclaim-ebook/dp/B013XULIHM/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1458203506&sr=1-1&keywords=kelly+brogan And more information about the reasons behind the book having problems in coming out can be found here: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/why-media-so-afraid-woman-s-work-4 The book seems to be aimed at the female angle but don't let that dissuade the male forum members. I'm going to buy this book, and the more of us that do, we will start to change the attitude of doctors who are prescribing these poisons that have taken so many lives. Who's going to join me? If so then a request has been made below by Kelly which will garner more support. A Call For Your Grassroots SupportWe are asking you to join our grassroots campaign to get this book into the hands of as many women and men who need it, organically. Here’s where we need your help. In honor of our David vs Goliath fight, I am asking you to: 1. Call your local bookstore – the one you haven’t been to in a while – and ask if they are stocking the book (if not they will order it). Go grab a copy for yourself and every person you love. 2. Take a selfie with the book at your local bookstore. 3. Post this pic on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #amindofyourown and tag your location! Namaste, DC.
