Hi Iamaperson,


Welcome to Surviving Antidepressants (SA), I am glad that you found the site.  It sounds like you are dealing with some horrible symptoms and I hope that you find the information Surviving Antidepressants provides helpful in your situation.  I certainly understand your desire to talk with your doctor to reduce your dosage and am providing you with a couple of links on how to talk with your doctor and find support from him/her to help you safely taper off of these drugs.


How do you talk to a doctor about tapering and withdrawal?
What should I expect from my doctor about withdrawal symptoms?


Before being able to provide you with any specific information with respect to your current situation, we would ask that you summarize your withdrawal/drug history in a signature - ALL drugs, doses, dates, and discontinuations & reinstatements, in the last 12-24 months in particular?  


We ask all members to provide their drug history as a signature.  This will be a permanent part of your introduction and It helps moderators to be able to see all of your details at a glance.  You can find the information on how to complete your signature at the link below:
Instructions:  Withdrawal History Signature
    •    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.


Please feel free to connect with other members of the community in their introduction threads.  Surviving Antidepressants is a very supportive community who share their experiences tapering off of antidepressants and are here to help.  Please take a moment to complete your withdrawal history signature so that the moderators have a better idea of what you are dealing with and can make recommendations specific to you.
