Hi OldASchool and welcome to SA.

 

The profile that you completed when joining is not public.  Please tell us more about your situation in a post and also follow these instructions to create your drug signature:

 

A request: 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.
  • Link to Account Settings – Create or Edit a signature.

 

This is your own Introduction topic where you can ask questions and journal your progress.

Please DO NOT TAG me - thank you

PLEASE NOTE:  I am not a medical professional.  I provide information and make suggestions.

64 year old male. Sober since 1984. Used alcohol to self medicate. Tricyclics from 1986 till 1994. 22 years on Zoloft and Klonopin for anxiety and depression. Tolerance in 2011. 3 mg K, 150 mg Zoloft daily. Started to dry-cut K in 2014 and Zoloft 2016. Benzo free since August 28 2017 and Zoloft since December 2 2016. Retired in January. The battle has been horrendous.
