  1. I am the mother of a man who has been going through a difficult and prolonged withdrawal from a combination of ssri's. The last dose was just over 12 months ago, although he had previously reinstated to get relief from a range of intolerable symptoms, following his initial attempt at discontinuing ssri's. He found that reinstating did not have the effect of relieving many of his symptoms, and therefore decided to again withdraw. I am hoping that in joining this forum that I will be able to describe how I have been coping (or not) in a supportive and caring role. My son has been following the p
  2. Hi - My 10 yo daughter had acute stomach pain for several months (4/13 start). The GI put her on 25mg Elavil daily (7/29). She took it for 2+ months, but ultimately, it was surgery (9/23) that relieved the pain - they found and clipped an adhesion that was pinning her colon to her abdomen, and removed a normal looking appendix. The doctors won't speculate on which or what caused the pain to start or stop, however. She stopped Elavil 5 days before surgery (9/17) and had a very hard weekend, I didn't realize there would be a withdrawal effect, but her heart was racing (initial EKG w
  3. I would appreciate assistance on tapering. My daughter is taking Zoloft 200 mg, Topiramate 25 mg (mood stabilizer), and Trazadone 50 mg (sleep aid). I have done extensive research trying to find which medication to start the tapering 10% method first, second and then third. I've not discovered any information on which one to start with and the sequence order. Would I start with the Zoloft first, the Topiramate second, and then Trazadone last? Or should I have her start with Topiramate first? What are your thoughts of tapering the Zoloft to 100 mg and then starting the Topiramate
  4. Hi, I'm writing as the mother of a 21 year old son who was medicated throughout his childhood (age 6-18) for what his doctor described as the most severe case of OCD he had ever seen in a child that age. His life has always been difficult; before he was put on medication, his OCD was so severe he could barely leave the house, eat a meal, or even get dressed without major compulsions taking over. It was heartbreaking to watch, and I have to admit the medication did successfully manage his compulsions for many years. Unfortunately, he really started to degenerate by the age of 17, and the me
  5. Please see my signature. My son has missed most of grade 9 due to extreme anxiety and ADHD. He is also getting cognitive behavioral therapy as he feels uncomfortable now even in public setting with the sense that people are out to hurt him at any time. Our goal is to lessen his anxiety to get him back to school. SSRI's haven't helped nor have stimulants for ADHD. Dr. now wants to try "short-term" up to three months of clonazepam to treat his anxiety to allow him to function and attend school and then to very slowly taper him off. The other thought is that this would allow h
  6. I am here for my son. I told him to tell the doctor 10% But the doctor did not. He is going to go from 5 to 2.5. The dr went from 7.5 to 5 But only kept that for 2weeks. I am very concerned. My son is very passive and wants to get off this drug. He started Dec 2015. Should he be more asertive with the doctor?
  7. Hi, I have come on this forum to find help for my son. He was on Quetiapine for about 3 years for panic attacks and depression. He came off his last dose of 25mg in October after a gradual withdrawal. His anxiety level went sky high and he was very week and couldnt concentrate. He developed breathing ocd amongs other things and now worst of all he has depersonalisation. He is frightened of everything, including the planet, the sky and himself. His doctor initially says it is nothing to do with the tablets as withdrawal only lasts 3 weeks. All he can offer is more drugs and councelling,

    Hi all! Thank you for this site, it has been a wealth of information already! I am a mom to three teens, all suffering from depression and/or anxiety disorders as I do myself. What prompted me to seek out help is my heartbreak over my 17 year old son's difficulty sleeping. He falls asleep at night about an hour after he takes his clonidine dose of .2mg. No matter what time he goes to sleep, he can only stay asleep for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. If he goes to sleep at 11 pm then he is up for the night by 1 am. In the past week there have been a few days where he was then up until 10 or
