Yulia1989: Lexapro twice cold turkey sufferer- need help


Yulia1989

Recommended Posts

Dear peer forum members,

 

I am writing here searching for hope and your support and advice. My name is Yulia, I am 27 years old and I am from Russia. Here is my sad story. There was a unfortunate point in my life when I almost had given up due to the life situation. Therefore it happened so that I had to take Lexapro antidepressant not by my wish but by insistance of my parents. First time it was introduced it when I was in a psychiatric clinic - I was given phenasepam in glass drop water and 10mg of Lexapro.. for around 2 months. It was zombifying me, giving a flat emotional state and a brain fog. After I left the clinic - as I was not feeling good with Lexapro - I have cold turkeyed it without telling the doctor and parents because they would insist on continuing and increasing the dosage. Then when the doctor got to know -  it was reinstated, 5 days with 5 mg and then 10.. the reaction of the  was even worse but I continued. I cold turkeyed it again after 2 months..

 

I understand this sounds bizzare but at that point I was very weak and couldnt take my own individual decisions and was afraid to spoil relationships with parents who were my only closest people. I cannot imagine now how could I possibly be so careless with these drugs.. they are evil. I totally understand that agreeing for the drugs first and then quitting them was a big mistake.

 

My problem is that cold turkeying left me with severe brain fog and cognitive issues - my problem now is that it is very hard to think (blank mind), generate ideas, make plans for the future.. I just dont have any thoughts, they just do not appear in mind.. When I try to concentrate - thoughts just disappear. When I try to make a decision or weight between two options - brain doesnt give an argument for one or another.. there is just nothing. This is catastrophy.. I feel I can do well when I am told what to do, but when I need to think myself, this just doesnt work.. I feel my learning abilities decreased and the memory is not that sharp as it was before (( So far 2 months have passed since I cold turkued Lexapro the second time.

 

I do understand that I have totally screwed up the system by these meds but I pray to God to forgive me for this mistake and give me a chance to heal..Luckily I have a source of income with a remote work.

 

In an attempt to recover I have turned to natural methods and detox - tried dry fasting (5 days) and water fasting (planned 21 day, but I was doing this under supervision and was allowed to do only full 19 days because of the weight loss). I quit it with 5 days on juices and today had a raw dinner. I feel that the cleanse was not complete, that I need to do more.

 

I have researched the whole internet about healing and naturopathic methods same as about cleansing and drug withdrawals. I found Gerson therapy diet plans, raw vegan lifestyle, juice fasting etc. I plan to stick to all that, also physical exercise.I do plan running twice a day, they say it increases neurogenesis, drink distilled water to flush out the toxins and stay on juices. People do incredible things trying to recover - like 90 days juice fast etc.

 

Please tell me - do I move in the right direction? Is the detoxification the key to reducing withdrawal effect? Or do I need supplimenting? Somehow I think that detox is the key... Shall I do an orange juice fast? Distilled water, sport - what does help?

 

I would need any possible advice on how to help the brain recover and get rid of this horrible brain fog and blank mind as it is horrifying to live further life with such situation...I would appreciate any help.

 

Kind regards,

Yulia

Dear peer members,

 

I am trying to help my brain to recover with the help of nutrition plan. I am a bit confused - because on one hand it is recommended to take fish oil to help the withdrawal and on another hand - there is Gerson therapy that says - no oil, under no consequences...

 

Could you please help, as I am pretty confused and dont know which plan to follow.. I do believe no oil plan helps detox, but how to foster neurogenesis after these nasty drugs?

 

Really hope for your help..

 

Kind regards,

Yulia

Hi Yulia

 

Considering your state at this moment, I would suggest a reinstatement with a very small dose, like 1mg Lexapro. This *could* fix a lot of your withdrawal symptoms. If things are getting worse, do stop immediately. And taper very slow from there on.

 

Before you attempt this, please inform yourself first.

 

About Reinstatement

 

You are not a lost cause! You will get better, no matter what you do. But reinstatement could make it a whole lot easier to handle and most likely in a shorter timespan.

 

 

 

 

Origin of Panic Attack and Anxiety Disorder: Overdose of Hallucinogenic HOT-7.

2013-09 20mg escitalopram. In the 4 first months 0.5-1mg/day Alprazolam for sleep & difficult situations.

Tapered the first time from 20mg to 0mg in 17 months or so. Withdrawal 6-8 weeks after last dose. Didn't taper enough to low enough doses (+-1mg).

2015-01-02 Back on 10mg after one week of delayed withdrawal. Stable in 8 days.

Second time tapered 2 years from 10mg to 1.6mg. Stable for half a year in range 2.5mg-1.6mg.

2017-07-28 Measurement errors: went for 1-2 weeks on 2mg. Restlessness and anxiety. Tried back to go back to 1.7mg for 5 days. Anxiety stayed.

2017-08-03 - 2017-08-20 Switched to liquid Lexapro 20mg/ml (1 drop is 1mg). Updosed to 2mg hoping to stabilize. Horrible Panic and Anxiety. Hold for 17 days hoping to stabilize. Didn't work enough for me at the time.

2017-08-20 End of holiday approaching. No more time. Decision to up dose to 5mg escitalopram. Back to the pills. Tapering alprazolam.

A lot of side effects: Akathisia, more anxiety, very troubling sleep, every thought and movement gave me panic attacks. Worst time of my life. I did learn coping skills in this period. A lot. Mastering meditation, mastering floating technique and more Claire Weekes stuff... Can handle extreme anxiety pretty decent now.

2017-09-30 Going down again because holding got worse almost every day. ADVICE TO OTHER ESCITALOPRAM PEOPLE, if updose doesn't work in two weeks, go down again!!! WD is not as brutal as adverse updose effects! After every taper (while tapering pretty manageable, after couple weeks holding, akathisia and extreme anxiety came back)

2018-01-29 Got to ZERO. A hard way down for sure. And now hoping for improvements along the way... Tapering melatonin gave me dystonic reactions however.
14 months after zero: Alternating akathisia, dystonic reactions and WD. Very unstable. No meds whatsoever. 31 months after zero: dystonia got worse, still very high anxiety, and many symptoms... no healing in sight. Adverse reaction destroyed me.

Hi Yulia,

 

I'm not so sure that a reinstatement is the best approach to deal with your current situation.  As you were only on Lexapro, from what I can tell, approximately four months, I believe that it would be better to deal with your current symptoms in a more holistic manner.  

Unfortunately, before we can provide you with advice specific to you, it would be very helpful if you could complete your withdrawal signature history so that the moderators have a better understanding of what your current situation is.  If you could take a minute to complete your signature, the moderators will be able to provide you with more detailed information.

Would you summarize your history in a signature - ALL drugs, doses, dates, and discontinuations & reinstatements, in the last 12-24 months particularly?

  • Please leave out symptoms and diagnoses.
  • A list is easier to understand than one or multiple paragraphs.
  • Any drugs prior to 24 months ago can just be listed with start and stop years.
  • Please use actual dates or approximate dates (mid-June, Late October) rather than relative time frames (last week, 3 months ago)
  • Spell out months, e.g. "October" or "Oct."; 9/1/2016 can be interpreted as Jan. 9, 2016 or Sept. 1, 2016.

 

For now, I would not recommend fasting or detoxing, particularly as this is just going to add more stress to your already stressed and destabilized central nervous system (CNS).  It is important for you to have a well-balanced diet of plenty of protein, fats (including oils) and fresh produce.  I am not familiar with Gerson therapy but imagine that without the proper nutritional building blocks, in particular protein, it would just add undue stress to your already fragile CNS.    

There is no known cure for withdrawal syndrome and only time and a good healthy diet is going to help your CNS to heal.  If I were you, I would investigate non-drug coping strategies to help you deal with the stress both you and your body are under right now.  It can oftentimes take many months to recover after what sounds like two short stints on Lexapro as well as discontinuing Lexapro twice so abruptly.    It is never recommended to stop an anti-depressant abruptly, it is necessary to taper off of these drugs slowly so that the CNS can adapt to the changes in the brain.  

 

Please try not to panic, you are young and were only on Lexapro for a short time, if you take the steps to take good care of yourself by eating a healthy well-balanced diet and try to incorporate a few techniques to help you deal with the stress, you will speed up the healing of your central nervous system ten-fold and will start feeling better as time goes by.  To give you an understanding of what is going on right now, I am attaching a couple of links that will help you to understand.  Please be assured that what you are experiencing is completely normal under the circumstances and things will get better.  

 

What is Withdrawal Syndrome?

What is Happening in Your Brain


I am going to attach a few links for you to have a look at that will provide you with ideas on some of the strategies you can use to deal with the emotional stress it sounds like you are under right now.  Omega 3 fatty acids and magnesium seem to help many people in withdrawal for relaxation and to help calm the mind and I would encourage you to see if these supplements might benefit you.

baroquep has provided you with a lot of excellent information.

 

When trying anything new it is better to test them one at at time, starting with a low dose and building up before adding in a new one, just in case you have a bad reaction.  Here are the SA topics discussing:

 

Magnesium

Omega-3 Fish Oil

Hey Yulia - 

 

I will chime in - I think that Gerson is excellent protocol for life threatening cancers.  The vitamins & minerals  provided by the juices are excellent - but you will find here that we are extremely cautious even about vitamins.  And there is no fat.  You need fat to heal.

 

But I do not think that detox will help you - and may, in fact harm you.  The problem is not that you are toxic, the problem is that the drugs have changed your brain, your nervous system, your endocrine system and probably your digestive system, too.  To add a detox protocol on top of trying to re-regulate your nervous system - could be quite a shock.

 

Your brain needs fats and oils in order to heal.  In addition to fish oil, I added coconut oil to my diet, and eat eggs  (whcih Gerson doesn't use, either) to make sure that my brain is getting enough cholesterol and fat to maintain a steady mood.  Slow and steady - hang in there.  This will pass (it may seem like forever, but it will pass).  

 

Once you get healed, and are outside of any withdrawal symptoms, you can try cleansing diets.

 

It is not too late to accept a tiny reinstatement - but only if your symptoms are unbearable.  You will heal the same, but the symptoms can be eased by reinstatement.  If you can, as Baroqup suggests, hang in there and use Non Drug Techniques for Coping with Emotional Symptoms, this will pass.  

 

I hope you see the sun today!

"Easy, easy - just go easy and you'll finish." - Hawaiian Kapuna

 

Holding is hard work, holding is a blessing. Give your brain time to heal before you try again.

 

My suggestions are not medical advice, you are in charge of your own medical choices.

 

A lifetime of being prescribed antidepressants that caused problems (30 years in total). At age 35 flipped to "bipolar," but was not diagnosed for 5 years. Started my journey in Midwest United States. Crossed the Pacific for love and hope; currently living in Australia.   CT Seroquel 25 mg some time in 2013.   Tapered Reboxetine 4 mg Oct 2013 to Sept 2014 = GONE (3 years on Reboxetine).     Tapered Lithium 900 to 475 MG (alternating with the SNRI) Jan 2014 - Nov 2014, tapered Lithium 475 mg Jan 2015 -  Feb 2016 = GONE (10 years  on Lithium).  Many mistakes in dry cutting dosages were made.

Lost emotions/humanity, blank mind after celexa, what to do?

 

Dear fellow sufferers, friends,

 

I desperately need your advice... After the last drug Celexa I am left with a disability - total depersonalization, blank mind and complete loss of emotions ((

It was only 2 weeks of Celexa, 4 days 5 mg, 6 days 10mg, then 5-5-2,5mg - off...

 

I cannot perform cognitive tasks that require thinking, I basically have total absense of thoughts and cannot take any decisions even about treatment because there is no weighting of choices and I feel nothing towards anything ((  I can only do simple tasks on instruction, I can handle conversations and talk but that is all. When left with cognitive task - I am useless, I get the blank mind...cannot plan things... The inability to feel my heart, emotions is the most painful but I dont feel the pain... Its like a heavy fog is put on my brain and heart and it sticks there.

My treatment was really cruel, chaotic and disordered and was performed in atmosphere of stress, fear and pressure. Cant believe they did it to me. Cant believe I didnt run when I could. Now is a total collapse, I dont know what to do and left alone with this. I cannot even feel grief due to my condition as I dont feel anything.

 

I will not be able to wait years till it passes as I am in Russia as life here is fast paced and will only destroy me. I cannot just sit and wait till it passes.. I stay at home, only benefiting from the money I earned when I was capable of things. I used to have a brilliant intelligence with 2 universities graduation and working abroad... but now... its garbage (((

 

Please please, could you recommend anything that would ease the condition, as least giving me some thoughts or enabling to feel any slight possibility of an emotion.One of the specialists suggested Lamictal/lamotrigine as it is believed to work with a depersonalization but I am a bit hesisitant as it probably slowers nervous system even more and I am slowered to a maximum extent... I would probably need something activating but I cannot think at all to find a solution, searching for solutions require thinking... Anyone who experienced an easy of symptoms, any thoughts occuring etc.. I try to understand - do I need another SSRI or have to avoid serotonin? I was told - cognition is ruled by dopamine, noradrenaline and acetilcholine, so should it be a drug with this profile? I understand this is all very value but I need any slight sign of hope... I am afraid taking magnesium and fish oil wont be a solution at this stage..

 

I am afraid one more hospitalization to a new hospital as suggested might be fatal for me. I am only 32, I cannot believe this is an end. 

 

You are the last community I can hope for as local doctors have no wish to dive deep and find the cause...

 

Please help...

 

History:

 

Cymbalta 30mg, increase to 60mg

Effexor - 1 week 37,5mg, felt extreme derealization went off

Got hospitalized, got:

Quetiapin 3 days

Reagila - 1,5mg, 1 week, severe depersonalization, taken off.

Brintellix - 5 to 20mg 23.09.21 to 21.10.21. Severe apathy, brain fog.. Taken off 10mg cold turkey on 21.10.

 

Got hospitalized again:

Olanzapine

Luvox, 150mg - slowed speech

Went off 50mg CT

 

Last - Celexa - 4 days 5mg, 5 days 10mg, 5mg-5mg-2,5mg, off.

Not taking anything since 05.02.2022. Desperate and dont know what to do.

Hi @Yulia1989

we really need to know your drug history with dates (as best as you can) so that we are able to advise - our advice will be different depending on whether this happened now or four years ago. 

 

It seems from your description that you may have had adverse effects to these drugs and you are very sensitive to various drugs. Can you tell us what your current symptoms are? 

Once you can give us this information we can try to help you get some respite.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Dear OnMyWay and ChessieCat,

 

Thank you lots for your kind reply... I am most worried for the situation happened this time - as from May 2021...  My main concern what to do since celexa discontinuation - I practically dont feel anything and cant think, make initiative and organize my life. I am physically healthy, having a good sleep but the brain health is disastrous as well as my daily life routines. I have tried to list the dates as precise as I could...

 

I would be so extremely grateful for your advice on what to do... would a new drug and a regular stable intake give a chance of or do I need just wait... I wouldnt want to reinstate to be honest as I remember that terrible but the trouble is that living in this condition is impossible as I have impaired thinking and blank mind...imaginanation visuals are very weak. Is blank mind treatable at all? Please see below...

 

I wish to bring my life and treatment in order. At least as much as I could...

 

May-August 2021 Cymbalta 30mg- increased to 60mg, taken CT from 60mg

24.08.2021 - 31.08.2021 Effexor - 1 week 37,5mg, felt extreme derealization went off

 

9 September 2021 - got hospitalized, got:

11.09 Quetiapin 3 days

14.09 Reagila - 1,5mg, 1 week, severe depersonalization, taken off.

23.09.21 to 21.10.21 Brintellix - 5 to 20mg. Severe apathy, brain fog.. Taken off 10mg cold turkey on 21.10.

 

29.11.2021 - got hospitalized again, given:

29.11.2021-13.12.2021 Olanzapine, 5mg

Luvox, 50mg-100mg

24.12.2022 - Luvox increased to 150mg - slowered speech

27.12.2022 - Luvox 100mg

05.01.2022 Went off 50mg CT. Withdrawal anxiety daily plus disbalanced nervous system.

 

21.01.2022 - 04.02.2022 Celexa - 4 days 5mg, 6 days 10mg, 5mg-5mg-5mg-2,5mg, off. Foggy mind, uncapable to concentrate, severe emotional blunting

Not taking anything since 05.02.2022. Desperate and dont know what to do. 

Lexapro withdrawal survivor... Was given 10mg Lexapro for 2 months in the psychiatric clinic by insistance of relatives- March, April 2017. When got off the clinic - quitted it cold turkey as created brain fog and emotional anaestasia. Then was pushed to to reinstate it - took again 10mg for 2 months - May, June 2017. Cold turkeyed again.  Now suffering from brain fog, blank mind and cognitive impairment. Please help.

@Yulia1989 for what reason did you pursue additional drug treatment in May 2021?

 

How did you feel while you were taking Cymbalta? Why did you go off 60mg cold-turkey?

 

Since you kept going back for more drugs, would it be correct to assume none of these drugs "worked"?

That was a mistake of my life to do so...but I was trapped in a situation. I was guided by the wrong psychiatrist who practiced these severe methods and could not resist.

 

None of these drugs worked in fact, only created additional problems.. But I only need one last hope to recover and understand what should I do now, after Celexa and rest feeling brain dead and emotionless... is catastrophic, when I try to think in dynamics, my central nervous system just crashes.. as Im basically frozen - mental and emotional block.

 

Please please tell me, would an introduction of a new medicine and staying steady on it stabilize the system and if yes, what could it be? I wont be able to live long with this damage.

 

I would be very much grateful for your kind attention and advice...

 

Kind regards,

Yulia

Hello! 
I'm new myself so I definitely don't feel like I can give solid advice -  but from what it looks like you've been kinda jumping around with the medication a lot (I'm too in a situation with too many changes in my opinion), and my body needs to adapt to things. You should definitely stop going CT so many times, if possible !! 
Especially with those drugs it takes time to have an effect and balance out, maybe you should stay on something  for a while until you are fine again? The initial period is always the worst... I think some guidance would really benefit you, be it a doctor (hopefully empathetic) or going on some form of health cure where you have time to heal for a little bit and sort things out? 
I'm really sorry you are going through this, sending you love - hang on, things will be better eventually. 🌸

2011:  Sertralin (50mg) and Mirtabene (??mg) in a mental hospital not sure about the dosage, as they were just given to us

2012:  stopped Mirtabene,  Sertralin went up to 100mg  time in between 2011 and 2017 is unfortunately very blurry

2017:  > first attempt (CT) failed, reinstated on 50mg (?)

           > switch to Escitalopram (5mg, upping to 10mg)

2018:  > failed another attempt (CT?), back to Escitalopram (10mg). 

           >  Escitalopram (5mg), added Bupropion (150mg) best so far!

2021:  May: Escitalopram down to 2,5mg, October: back to 5mg

              > December:  Exchange of Escitalopram (5mg) with  Duloxetin (30mg, up to 60mg, down to 0); Bupropion 300mg -->  led to complete crash, still stuck to it

2022:  > February:  Microdosing truffles (1mg) twice

              > 6th March: reinstating 1,25mg Escitalopram 

             > 14th March: 2,5mg Escitalopram + 300mg Bupropion

             > 10th April: 2,5mg escitalopram + 150mg Bupropion

 Dear Alto, yes... body-wise all ok, my I just cant feel and think, cannot make a plan, I feel like dead... I can have a conversation but I practically have no thoughts and emotions. There is nothing in my heart. I lie in bed all the time. Plus the growing stress of possible job loss and disability..

 

I tend to agree with @panphyni (thank you!) that its all because of so many different drugs and CT.. maybe it could be a solution to choose a drug and stay on it long term but after so many trials Im so scared to start though i dont feel it. But what could it be? And is there a chance to reverse the damage? Trouble is, I am afraid of serotonin drugs now but if not them, what could it be...

 

I am only afraid that not doing anything might not be the best solution as I stress out because of this condition and there is a big pressure from relatives to go to get treatment again. I am not in a proper setting for healing... one cannot get well in the same environment where he got sick..

Dear @Yulia1989

in your case every new drug that you have taken has made you worse from what you are telling us and you have taken both serotonin drugs,  and antipsychotics (quetiepine, olanzapine). It may indicate that your system is sensitized and new drugs to mitigate withdrawal symptoms will be counterproductive. 

 

In either case we are not a forum that advises on drug changes/switches/additions. Our purpose it to help people get off their psychiatric drugs without harm or minimal harm if and when they want to do that. We may suggest drug addition to mitigate withdrawal symptoms such as reinstatement but not for 'treating' some perceived diagnosis. That is the job of your treating doctor. 

 

You may also wish to see this thread and search in the symptoms and care forum about any of your symptoms.

@Altostrata Alto, I did a deadly mistake of taking Zoloft for 2 weeks right 2 weeks ago... max dose was 50 mg... It was evil.

Two weeks not taking anything - since 2 May... but the condition is unbelivably bad... i never actually thought it could be that bad - feeling completely void, nothing... very blank mind and emotions, very depersonalized, lost my personality - basically no nerves, nerves burned out... I dont know how it is even possible to have the nerves burned out... I couldnt choose a colour of a toy I wanted to buy..

 

My parents want me to go to hospital - I dont even feel my attitude towards it because Im so void. No anxiety, no depression, just nothing. I spend days in my flat all alone. I cant think and work. I can read, speak properly, understand texts but I cant think, plan, analyze - all is some fog..

 

I want to self-organize and be disciplined somehow but Im falling into lethargy all the time, being blank I forget what to do. And I dont feel whats right or wrong anymore...whats good or bad for me... I am very calm now actually.. but severely disfunctional. And being suicidal in fact.

 

Alto, what to do? I'm scared of taking more meds but Im completely disfunctional, completely...chaotic, messy... I know stabilizing on something and making a very slow taper could be a solution but I dont know it the hospital now would be a dead end station. But staying like this I am dying as well because Im all alone, parents left me and people I knew too..

Cold turkeyed again.  Now suffering from brain fog, blank mind and cognitive impairment. Please help.

Honestly if I had only one chance... only one last chance for healthy brain... 

 

If i get to the hospital, it might be very toxic with diasepam and rest.. But with this loneliness and being abandoned and disability, lack of routine...i am ceasing too ((((((

 

Now the problem is - I cant follow something long... I take one supplement, go to one training, do one shot of something.. I cannot be consistent because of this damage..

 

I am at a point of giving up, but something deep inside me would crave for intelligence and soul.... which are destroyed now... can one raise up after such severe trauma or that is it..

I'm at a loss about what to suggest, @Yulia1989 We don't have any cure for protracted withdrawal here. You're going on and off drugs repeatedly makes your situation even more complicated.

 

If you're sleeping regularly, that's a good sign. We would suggest doing the best you can and allowing very gradual recovery rather than intermittent drug experiments. Be sure to get at least a half-hour of gentle exercise every day; keep regular hours;, drink plenty of water; eat good, fresh food; no alcohol or artificial ingredients.

It's time and waiting to stabilize.  People do heal but it takes time.   It is hard not to be tempted to try new things.   I reinstated my cold turkey drug and have seen partial stabalization but the moderators state it can be significant time for full stabilization.  It is so beyond hard.   I also have limited emotional range and some lingering physical issues.  I am seeing slow improvements.  I try to get sun walk in woods and do positive affirmations.  Hard to keep faith with no known end date.  Also wondering if I did right thing by reinstating but considering how many symptoms improved by doing so, I may be doing much better than I would otherwise.   Only thing that got much worse is apathy.  All the rest improved or stayed the same.  You can heal. There are multiple cold turkey stories off multiple cocktails who did.   I struggle with measuring progress on a daily basis which is stupid.  

Zoloft on an off since 30s with no issues. On and off for years  long periods 25 to 150 mg.  75 average dose.  (Current age 50).

Risperdal 1 month. 2018.  Various trials of other drugs but Never for more than couple of weeks due to poor tolerance and all over 12 years ago.  Script for seldom used klonopin.  Would take 1 month at most.  Off for years

January 2021 went off Zoloft 25 mg and supplemented with Fish Oil/L Theanine/L Tryptophan to keep up Serotonin level

zoloft taper 100 t0 25mg over one year. concerns of vision heart side effects jumped at 25

went off in january 

Off for three weeks, went back on at 25 mg after depression symptoms came back

February 12 2022- either med reaction/serotonin toxicity with Zoloft mix other serotonin natural supplements

February 16 - 21 2022 (two doses of Zoloft on advice to restart, one 25mg, one 12.5mg - nausea

Supplements. Fish oil magnesium mct oil cytokine suppress multi vitamin nac modified keto and daily walks

Over next 2 months re instated  Zoloft to 65mg with significant partial improvements steady sleep. 

June 7 Resume taper 62.5 on  6/21 60mg 7/9 57.5mg 7/24 54 mg
