  1. Hi. I've been on Pristiq since 2014. I've taken varying dosages but have been taking 50mg for a long time now. I've been trying to wean off unsuccessfully since early 2019. The withdrawal symptoms are too serious and long-lasting. It makes it near impossible for me to continue working due to my need to be alert and aware enough to safely drive a vehicle regularly. My GP has just given me Loxalate 10mg. I'm to begin this over the weekend on the "off" day I've been trying to wean off my Pristiq and continue on Loxalate for a month everyday. I was wondering if anyone has any additi

    Hello.I’m taking 2 ladose (prozac) of 20 mg every day. But I realised that previously when i was taking one cipralex (lexapro),I was feeling much better and I want to start taking again this peel. But I don’t know how to pass from prozac to lexapro. I heard that the best is to reduce the prozac before I start taking the Lexapro.Could you please help me and tell me what I can do? (Now I’m taking one prozac when I wake up and one at night at 10 o’clock. Please answer me if you can!
  3. I've been in a bad place lately and I could use some advice. Since April I've been going through a relapse of mental health issues, and right now they're the worst they've ever been. It started when I was coming to the end of a stressful postgrad, I started getting panic attacks, something I used to get in the past but managed to overcome through therapy. I then broke up with my girlfriend, which was a stressful affair. The month of May I spent entirely searching for a job in the field I went to school for. I did this while I battled through my symptoms, and
  4. Hi everyone. I've been dealing with severe derealization, panic, insomnia, anxiety, depression, dizziness, vertigo, migraines, agitation, irritably etc. for 3 years now. I'm scared out of my mind. I am on geodon 20 mg 2x a day zoloft (I'm weening. Just went from 25 mg to 12.5 mg) remeon 7.5 mg 2x a day scheduled Ativan (5 mg total per day) i am at at the end of my rope. I believe be chronic insomnia is at the heart of the way I feel. I have recently come to the realization that the derealization could be coming from pharmaceuticals. In an attempt to feel bet
  5. I'm curious but was anyone here born with mental problems that function fine now without "Medications"? Meaning as young as you can remember? I ask because I had a lot of anxiety growing up as a child, mostly separation anxiety from my parents but I was never medicated. As I grew older I started to out grow it until one of my parents died in front of me when I was 15 which led me down this path, so really I am just curious. I almost feel like I got trapped and there is no way out. The withdrawal from this Anafranil is horrible, I just don't know if I got trapped on the Klonopin and mig
  6. I've suffered from generalised anxiety and depression since I was about 13. My parents were against medication, so it was diagnosed but it was never really addressed. I was first started on Lexapro at 17 because of a serious eating disorder. The Lexapro was amazing in helping my anxieties around food, within a couple of months I was able to eat with fairly normal regularity. Before the Lexapro I wasn't eating anything more than an apple or a slice of bread a day. I was taken off Lexapro after a year because I felt I didnt need it anymore. The anxiety continued, just not around food. Over s
  7. Hi Everyone, The intent of this post is not to say "Oh you're trying to come off that drug that you're actually supposed to be on and need, you should stay on it, you're a bad person for trying to come off it..." etc. I'm curious if the drug you are trying to come off of is one you actually need or supposedly need or if it is one you don't need (maybe you were misdiagnosed, you no longer have the condition, you have developed coping skills, etc). What you decide to do with your body and your life is your choice. I'm just curious. Would you be diagnosed with the disorder that the drug you'r
  8. I'm just interested in whether anyone has done research in to why most of us can be rapidly titrated up to a large dose of an AD or AP without the brain having the complete melt down that it does if these drugs are rapidly removed? Surely the initial introduction of them throws just a bigger wrench in the gears of our brains' delicate neurochemistry, yet if this caused the dilemma that rapid removal does, none of use would have ever tolerated any psychoactive drug for more than a week.
