  1. Hi, all. Thank you so much for providing this site. I’ve been inspired by the stories here, and look forward to my own recovery and hope to help others as I can along the way. It’s been a hellish year… I have a rather long story – 99% of which takes place within the last year – so please bear with me. I’ll write this out in a timeline for organization’s sake. In essence, I have a history of anxiety and depression, and have OCD. I have been suffering from severe postpartum anxiety (PPA) and depression (PPD) since delivering my son in May 2018 – exacerbated by a move out
  2. Hi Everyone, I've been reading the site for a few hours and am really grateful for so many of the contributors who share so much of their time, heart, and knowledge to help others come off medications they no longer want to be on. I am going to start tapering off this weekend of 75mg of Venlafaxine, which I found out through another Dr. I never should have been on to begin with. I have an estrogen problem that cannot be solved with SSRIs and became diagnosed with severe depression after the birth of my first and only child who is now 6. I went untreated for 2.5 years until I had a
  3. Hello everyone. I wanted to jump on here and hopefully gain some perspective on my situation. I started Lexapro 10 mg in Oct. 2012 for situational depression. As that situation resolved, I questioned whether I still needed to be on it and began tapering in April 2014. I went down to 7.5 mg for about a month, then discovered I was pregnant. I really wanted to wean off Lexapro for the duration of the pregnancy. Sadly I miscarried at 10 weeks. I was still on 7.5 mg for a little while. Felt I processed the miscarriage as much as I could, then went down to 5 mg for awhile. I was doing okay
  4. Hello all I am so grateful to find this site. I’ve been vacillating about joining, but now here I am. I feel kind of silly posting because when I read some of your heartbreaking stories mine aren’t as bad, but still, here I am and I’m suffering in my own way and would be honoured to get help or insight from those who have gone through this (going through this!) before me. So, I’ve had life long anxiety, which I never got help for (say, 25+ years). This all came to head after I had my baby late 2012 in about March 2013 with an EPIC nervous breakdown after months and months of gruelli
  5. Hi all, I'm so happy I found this site! After experiencing absolutely horrible anxiety/OCD and extreme insomnia (literally didn't sleep a second for more than a week), I was put on Paxil 5mg and Trazodone + Ativan to help me sleep. I was able to get off the Ativan quite quickly and weaned the Trazodone down to the lowest dose (50). After a few months on that, I decided with my psychiatrist that it was time to wean off the Paxil. I did a month at .25 mg and had no problems so I thought it'd be easy to go completely off. Not the case at all! It's been 5.5 weeks now and all of my anx
