What is your daily drug schedule? Do your symptoms follow any daily pattern? 

 

Please keep daily notes on paper about your symptoms, when you take your drugs, and their dosages. Use a simple list format with time of day on the left and notation (symptom, drug and dosage) on the right.

Thanks Alto will do.

Hi Rus, 

 

Yes, holding is just as important as how much we taper by. I remember once I only held for three weeks instead of four or more and it certainly caught up with me. Sometimes we have to do longer holds too. The best indicator is listening to your body, our body knows best.

 

Getting off these meds is a very slow process. When I take the Seroquel in the evening by body buzzes and tingles. The meds themselves cause symptoms, it’s not just the withdrawals. I remember Alto saying to someone recently that Seroquel is a lot worse than benzodiazepines as regards the harm it can do to our bodies. I’m glad I’m down to 7.5mg now. I was on 300mg before. The lower the dosage the better, as it may not cause as many symptoms, and one day it will be out of our system for good. Yay!   Take care💚

Hi Rus, 

 

I’m so sorry you’re going through such waves. I find the way I get through waves is to distract myself, I’ve got hobbies, I watch DVDs and Netflix, go out in nature, explore, listen to music etc. Even if the anxiety is high or I’m totally anhedonic I still make myself do these things. It’s better than having all my focus on the withdrawals.

 

Hope you can find some distractions to help you cope💚
