Hi everyone, I’ve just come across this website and sounds like there is some great forums and support. So hoping for some guidance and assurance! So I’ve taken 100mg of Sertraline for approximately 10yrs. Initially prescribed for post natal depression and anxiety. While on medication I experienced a traumatic incident, therefore medication was increased to support with the depression and PTSD. I’ve attempted to taper off Sertraline before, without success. I had recently forgot to collect my prescription and after around 3 days of no medication. I thought it could be an opportunity to cold turkey from the medication. I am now on day 7 and having the worst withdrawal symptoms ever! Feeling tired, headaches, brain zaps, feeling so irritable! I’m awful to be around! And so emotional, just breaking down and sobbing. I feel helpless and and so low. I’m being irrational and not being thinking straight at all. Now I suppose my query is, has anyone else experienced this, how long for, is it worth trying to hang in there? How long does this awful feeling last? I’m a senior manager at work and need to be focused, I can’t take time out either, it’s a new promotion. Any support or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated! Thank you everyone 😊
ShakeyJerr posted a topic in Symptoms and self-careYou know that crying we all get that has nothing to do with depression? They tears that well up uncontrollably as we recover from the effects of these insidious psychotropic meds we all took? Well, it has a name: pseudobulbar affect. And of course, it already has an approved drug to help mask it. Because big pharma is more than happy to take advantage of what there other drugs did to us. I'm in too much of a crying bout right now to write more about this. Do some googling. But don't let what you read lead you to thinking you should take any medication to cope with this. As we have all learned, powerful brain chemistry altering drugs is not the answer. SJ
