Hey all-

I know everyone’s busy but I’m curious if anyone has experience with taking CBD in a wave when it worked before? Just trying to manage my anxiety and it’s been an ace in the hole for me in the past. I haven’t taken it in a week or so because I was afraid it would mess me up more. I’d love to hear anyone’s feedback!

I’ve been on the same dose of 4 MG of Lexapro after a fast taper for 10 months now. I continue to have issues. I know my journey hasn’t been typical because I’ve had surgeries and injections for back pain but I’m at my wit’s end. I’m trying to eat healthy and heal my gut. Yet I still get anxious for hours at a time and meditation won’t touch it. 

 

I’ve always tried to be positive but I’m sick of this and I feel like I won’t ever be able to restart a slow, safe taper. 

 

Should I consider an updose to 5 MG? I’m desperate to feel like myself again, all the time.

2017 (nov-dec?) -> Feb 2018 fast taper - flipped out in Feb. Reinstated with 75mg-150mg (?not sure) stabilized
2018 Feb Began year long taper - somehow made it to 50pellets, did fine
          Sept -  17 bbs <-- where I started keeping track
           Oct - 16 bbs, Nov - 15 bbs, Dec - 14 bbs

Hey @DogLover-

Thanks for asking!  I've found that CBD really helps when I'm not in a wave.  However, when I'm in a wave, it makes things way worse for me.  

 

One day we'll get through this!

Hey everyone,

I'm approaching my one year mark of my hold at 4 MG of Lexapro and I have to be honest, I would have expected to feel better.  I've absolutely had some medical procedures that have thrown me off track but I still feel pretty bad daily.  Questions for any mods thare are out there:

 

-Should I consider increasing my dose to combat the lack of serotonin in my body?

-On the flip side, maybe these drugs are making me feel worse and I actually need to start my taper again?

 

I get so anxious sometimes and I can't seem to handle stressful situations like I used to.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

ryan, you don't lack serotonin, please put that idea aside.

 

What is your daily symptom pattern? How has it changed in the last 6 months?

 

Were you prone to anxiety prior to taking psychiatric drugs?

Thanks for checking, Alto and sorry again for tagging you. 

 

I’m not sure of the science so I appreciate the reminder. 

 

Honestly, my days typically start with a lot of anxiety in the morning and work, something I used to really be able to handle, makes me super anxious. By the time I get home around 6 PM, I’m completely exhausted. I lose my patience with my kids and it’s just a really bad thing for my family. I used to not be like this. 

 

Yes, I’ve always been prone to anxiety but not it seems like I can’t handle any stressful situation at all. My back pain and nasal/breathing issues give me anxiety as well.

What time of day do you take Lexapro? Does it make you sleepy or is it stimulating? How are you sleeping?

 

Are you getting at least a half-hour of gentle exercise, such as walking, every day?

I take Lexapro at 8 AM and 8 PM for a total of 4 MG. I rarely miss those exact times. I can’t honestly tell whether it stimulates me or makes me tired. It just makes me feel...bad. I have this full headed congested, anxious feeling. 

 

I sleep OK. I have back issues so that can be a factor but I do OK for the most part. I have some nasal stuff going on and I have surgery in 2 weeks. 

 

Yes, I work out every weekday morning and do yard work on the weekend. I coach baseball too so that keeps me active. Really been watching my diet and I keep that very under control.

Do you think that it could be the fact that I'm on pills and not liquid?  I weigh my pills like everyone else but maybe I'm not getting a consistent amount of active ingredient?

No, the pills are probably okay. I am concerned about these symptoms that sound like allergy? What is your nasal condition?

 

Do you have sleep apnea?

Thanks, Alto. I have a collapsed septum and I can’t breathe out of my left nostril. It’s as fun as it sounds. Haha. 

 

Should I consider an updose of .25 or .50?

Another thought- I did get serotonin syndrome at the end of 2016 so perhaps Lexapro is essentially poisoning me? I've read some things that it's really difficult to take any med that affects serotonin after having serotonin syndrome.

Hey everyone- Been a long time and I wanted to check in. Still cruising on 4 MG, 2 MG twice per day, spaced out 12 hours apart. 
 

Doing well from an anxiety perspective. Been looking for stabilization for the last 1.5 years before I start my taper using the @brassmonkey slide. 
 

I had a sinus infection for which I had to take antibiotics and steroids for for about a month. Then I had a nasal surgery and subsequent cold and I was on all sorts of meds- Mucinex, Sudafed, Patanase, etc etc. The total timeline has been about 3.5 months. 

 

I’ve been off all meds for a couple weeks and ever since then, I’ve had the worst frontal headaches that last all day, every day. I’m definitely in a wave but I’ve never had symptoms like this. I’m considering taking B2 (Riboflavin) to help because Tylenol won’t make a dent. The neurologist suggested the conservative approach rather than Topomax or Neurontin, which I appreciate. 

 

Any thoughts on that approach?

Hey all,

It's been a long time and I hope everyone is doing really well and staying safe in this crazy world!  I wanted to provide a quick update and ask a question.  I AM STABLE!  It took about 2.5 years from when I got serotonin syndrome and tapered too quickly to finally stabilize.  I know that's scary for some to hear but it IS possible!  I've been enjoying the past 9 months but I think I'm ready to keep going.

 

The only thing is that I'm still on 4 MG of Lexapro and clearly I need to address that.  I have to be honest that I'm completely terrified to so since I've seen what life on the other side can look like.  Should I start with the @brassmonkey slide and see how I do?  Is that the best approach since I don't know how I'll react?

 

I appreciate your time.  Have a great day.

Hi @ryan1982,

 

I started reading this thread as you mentioned luvox (something I'm having issues with). Ended up reading through all 7 pages! So happy to read you have finally felt stable for the first time in a while. Can I ask how you're feeling now?


On Fluvoxamine since 2005.

 

2018 - Attempt One - Switching AD's

1 Aug - 26 Aug: 200mg Luvox to 0,         12 Aug - 27 Nov: Tried Brintellex, Valdoxan and Prozac,     *Ended up in psych hospital*       27 Dec: Rapidly went back to 300mg Luvox

 

2019 - Attempt Two - Goodbye AD's

2019:  Oct- Dec: Weaned from 300mg - 200mg

2020: 17 Jan: 175mg,       22 Jan: 150mg,          5 Feb: 125mg,          10 Feb: 100mg,          24 Feb: 50mg,       2 June: 55mg,      2 July: 60mg

Hey @mooki24-

Hope you're doing well!  It's been a heck of a journey and I'm still holding at 4 MG of Lexapro but I'm STABLE!  This site can be difficult to come to grips with when you're in the throes of withdrawal but they're right- time and stability heal. 

 

How are you doing?
