  1. I'm rating my symptoms and trying to decide when to make a reduction. I switched from Wellbutrin extended release to immediate release, same dose, and had quite a few increased symptoms for a few weeks (suicidality, headaches, sleep disturbance, low mood). Now I'm wondering how I decide I'm stable enough to try a small, like 3% cut. I'm only a little suicidal, no headaches, still sleep disturbance and low mood. But, I wasn't all that stable when I started, so... I may never get to a more stable place... When is stable enough? HA
  2. First, excuse me for my English, I speak just French. I’m new on this group and would share my story. My story with shrink medications: It’s the most important rules, the golden rules if you want quit all this crap with minimal damage: stay on the original molecule and taper SLOWLY. I’m destroyed now because I have follow my Dr in this process: 1. Ten years on Tramadol and two years on Klonopin due to neurologic pain after a failed surgery. 2. Almost CT withdrawal of the two molecules , at this time I don’t know a clue about Ashton Manual and withdrawal, I trust my doc 3. Resu
  3. Hi, I just recently found this website and I am hoping to gain support and insight into healing. My journey with medication withdrawal began 2 years ago when out of the blue after getting my prescription for Mirtazapine refilled I began to get extremely sick. At the time I was taking 15 mg of Mirtazapine (had taken this for 20 years) and I was also taking 50 mg of Tramadol twice daily. (Taken for 10 years) For those who don’t know, Tramadol is a synthetic opioid medication that also has SSRI attributes, which at the time I did not realize. For years I felt great on these medication. I have su
  4. The story is long and I apologize in advance for the length but I believe it is important to tell the whole story. In 2009 I broke my hand in 4 places and since then I have had pain in my wrist. In 2012 after I had my last child my doctor gave me Tramadol for the pain 3 times a day (50mg). It did help and I noticed I was sleeping better, had energy during the day, pain was gone, and mood was great. I have always been a somewhat bored and depressed person so it was great to rather enjoy things that previously I would have found boring. Well, I wound up needing more medicine to continue to feel
  5. Hello, Part 1, Intro. I would like to start by sincerly thanking websites such as Survivingantidepressants for essentially helping me to understand my plight more accurately. I have found the success story sections to be particularly helpful, and have turned to these wonderful stories to help raise my spirits in times of utter hopelesssness. After lurking around on these websites, often too incapacitated to do much in the way of meaninful writing, I decided that it might be helpful to someone out there if I shared a little bit about myself. This is going to be a long post, and I unders
  6. I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg along with 50mg of Ultram/Tramdol for the past six years after surviving a ruptured cerebral aneurysm with no issues but had a recent supplement interaction that landed me in the ER. I was terrified to take anything after that interaction and my doctor indicated that I would have no problem quitting both medications cold turkey (Wellbutrin and Ultram). Note I mention the Tramadol because of the serotonin and norepinephrine affects. I also have a prescription for .25mg of Xanax but literally only used half a pill a few times a year. First week
  7. Hi, I'm new here and have a little different story (I think). I was taking Tramadol for 3 years for RLS, Fibromyalgia& Neuropathy. Because of increasing physical dependence, I decided it was time to come off. I tapered over a 3 month period and have been off for about 5 months. Because of the SSRI properties in Tramadol, I'm still having ongoing post acute withdrawal symptoms of nausea, anxiety, sweating, etc. Does anyone have any experience with recovery from Tramadol????? Need help!
  8. Hi, I've been reading some threads on this forum to try and better understand what has happening to me for the past weeks and I decided to create my own topic so that maybe typing out my experiences and getting some feedback might help me. About two weeks ago I took some Zaldiar because I was experiencing some pain. At the time I was not aware of the anti-depressant properties of the Tramadol that Zaldiar contains. I took about 4-5 pills the first day with a couple of hours in between (one pill has 37,5mg Tramadol). The second day after waking up I still had
  9. I am a 65 year old recovering female alcoholic with history of amphetamines, hallucinogenics, cocaine and cannabis. I have not used any of these substances for 34 years. In recovery, I went into a full-blown four week unrelenting panic attack in 1985 three years sober, and was put on pamelor for the first time for depression and was given ativan PRN for panic disorder. When prozac came out, I was switched to that in 1988 and was on prozac for 8-9 years. I got off prozac and was put on the newer SNRIs off and on for the next ten years, the usual ones, as each new brand arrived on the market
  10. To make this short and sweet, I got put on these drugs by my doctor that was treating me for Lyme Disease as a way to help me feel better through the symptoms and problems of Lyme disease. And of course I believe that this actually made all the problems MUCH worse. Cut to now, I'm ive been on: 1 mg of Klonopin a day, split into 2/0.5mg doses. 450 mgs of Lyrica a day, all at once before bed for sleep. 100 mgs of Tramadol a day, split into 2/50mg doses. 60 mgs of cymbalta a day taken all at once in the morning. Basically before doing my research into the proper speed to taper,
  11. Hello Friendly people! I just wanted to put this out there and ask for some advice on behalf of my lovely wife. Very quick history of her. SHe has suffered quite bad depression a lot of her earlier life. She lost both parents by age of 16, and fell into deep depression. By age 21 or so, she got herself together, got a job and started in a positive direction. After her first marriage breakup, she went on 20mg of Citalopram, around year 2000. I entered her life a little after this. We moved out to Australia 2004. I can't quite remember the situation, but she started getting depres
