hey guys!

 

so update: i'm doing great! :D

i've been  continuing to seperate my 900mg night dose of gabapentin into 3 even doses of 300mg 8 hours apart as per the schedule . today's dose schedule was:

 

8:00 AM:  0.25mg clonazepam, 300mg gabapentin (& supplements)

1:30 PM:  0.25mg clonazepam

2:00 PM:  (supplements)

8:00 PM:  0.5mg clonazepam, 50mg quetiapine + 18.75mg/H2O solution quetiapine, 600mg gabapentin (& supplements)

 

i do feel a sense of relief and calmness after taking the smaller (300mg) doses of gabapentin. i think this is going to keep improving as my night-time dose of gabapentin is gradually seperated into 2 smaller doses of 300mg each and moved to 4pm and midnite,

so that all 3 doses of gabapentin will eventually be taken 8 hours apart. i already feel improvement.

 

but i still have pre-existing mild bruxism/jaw clenching & mild headache immediately before & after each dose of my clonazepam at 8am , 1:30pm and 8pm. (this prexisted before ever changing my gabapentin dosage schedule.)

originally i was on quetiapine for over a decade before the anxiety caused an ulcer in my stomach (documented by a small camera inserted there 📷).

the clonazepam seemed to help the anxiety for a short time, then made the anxiety worse.

now that i'm tapering off of the SSRI, i find the anxiety and bruxism coming back and have to eat saltines for my stomach lining/stomach growling/churning just as i did years ago, when the anxiety caused an ulcer. 

should i continue to bite the bullet on the anxiety that's returning while i taper from the SSRI and wait until i'm done (in 2025) to begin tapering off of the benzo?

it kind of feels like i'm getting interdose withdrawals ...either from the quetiapine being all at once dosing at 8pm (with a half life of 6 hours, so by morning i'm in withdrawals already) 😒

or possibly from a reaction to my clonazepam doses...maybe the dose is no longer sufficient to prevent anxiety , maybe tolerance has been reached for the clonazepam and it just doesn't touch the anxiety anymore?

 

if the bruxism/mild headache is due to anxiety caused by the quetiapine short half life and nothing left in my system to prevent withdrawals when i wake up,  then maybe the SX of bruxism/mild headache could be mitigated by seperating my 8pm dose of quetiapine into 2 doses, in a similar fashion to the way that i'm using to seperate my gabapentin into smaller doses.

 

any ideas?

 

thx in advance 👍

(and on 4/01/2019 i'm gradually moving my progesterone 300mg from 8pm to midnite since it makes me sleepy...)

 

(start dose: progesterone 300mg @ 8pm)

(4 days to switch to midnite)

(last time i had troublesome symptoms, i tried to move the clonazepam mid-day dose before my symptoms stopped/stabilized, so i've had that dose on HOLD at 1:30pm everyday, even though it's an awkward time slot, it's just until i get these other more important time slot changes made. then i'll move the clonazepam from 1:30pm to 2 pm on 4/13/2019.)

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

*NOTE*  even though these schedule changes are only an hour difference each day, and sometimes overlap, i'm paying close attention to my SX and documenting them on my hourly/24 hour planner. i document what i eat, drink, SX, meds, accidents (like walking into a door in the dark and bruising my head lol), other unrelated illness e.g. urinary tract infection, etc, exercise and weather...sunny cloudy or mixed, (becausemy mood is significantly  affected by the amount of sunlight i get) and all of these things can affect my SX. I have made careful attention to NOT CHANGE ANY DOSAGE AMOUNTS of any of my meds while doing the dosage time switcheroo's. if i should encounter worsening SX, i will HOLD until SX reside/resolve before continuing the schedule changes.

so the newly formulated quetiapine 3x daily dose microtaper ala "Brass Monkey Slide Microtaper" officially begins on 4/21/2019. it starts out like this:

 

(start dose: quetiapine 8am: 25mg pill,  4pm: 18.75mg/ml H2O solution,  midnite: 25mg pill )

4/14/2019:     total daily dose:   68.75mg     8am:  25mg pill                             4pm: 18.75mg/H2O solution        midnite: 25mg pill

(64 days to switch to 3 even doses spaced 8 hours apart)

4/21/2019:     total daily dose:   67.03mg      8am: 24.14mg/H2O solution      4pm: 18.75mg/H2O solution        midnite: 24.14mg/H2O solution 

4/28/2019:     total daily dose:   65.36mg      8am: 23.30mg/H2O solution      4pm: 18.75mg/H2O solution        midnite: 23.30mg/H2O solution

5/05/2019:     total daily dose:   63.72mg      8am: 22.49mg/H2O solution      4pm: 18.75mg/H2O solution        midnite: 22.49mg/H2O solution

5/26/2019:     total daily dose:   62.13mg      8am: 21.69mg/H2O solution      4pm: 18.75mg/H2O solution        midnite: 21.69mg/H2O solution

(the measuring is easy from this date forward, since i'll only be measuring the same amount for each of the 3 daily doses of quetiapine. also my gabapentin will be taken in 3 even doses at the same times. annnnnnd... the clonazepam will be at a regular medication dose time that i take several supplements at with lunch, o it won't be hard to get into a routine everyday of taking my supplements and clonazepam together and dissolving my 4pm dose of quetiapine all at the same time. i'll be doing "chemistry 2x a day, once at 2pm and again at 10pm to prepare my midnight and next morning/8am doses of quetiapine. i will refrigerate the next morning's 8am dose right after i make it, so i won't have to get up early to work in "the lab" when i'm groggy and clumsy.)

 

my daily schedule will look like this,once everything is switched into the new dosing schedule, by 6/30/2019:

 

midnite:    drink 18.70mg/H2O quetiapine, set dissolved am dose of quetiapine in fridge overnight, 300mg progesterone, 300mg gabapentin, set non-digital alarm by bed (no emf's/blue light to disrupt melatonin production during night!), BEDTIME

i've successfully completed the gabapentin switcheroo!  YAY!! 

...and now for some much deserved rest and celebration...one milestone down :D

as for positive changes, i do feel more relaxed during the day and definitely not as dopey near bedtime as before. i think it will continue to improve as i get my quetiapine switcheroo completed and move the progesterone to midnite instead of 8pm. i also noticed the mild bruxism and mild headaches that i got at the beginning of the transition have lessened as i got closer to my 3x a day goal. the only negative SX so far during the transition to 3x daily instead of 1x nightly gabapentin has been weirdly waking up at about 4:30am, looking at the clock and going back to sleep.

but i still have pre-existing mild bruxism/jaw clenching & mild headache immediately before & after each dose of my clonazepam at 8am , 1:30pm and 8pm. (this prexisted before ever changing my gabapentin dosage schedule.)

originally i was on quetiapine for over a decade before the anxiety caused an ulcer in my stomach (documented by a small camera inserted there 📷).

the clonazepam seemed to help the anxiety for a short time, then made the anxiety worse.

now that i'm tapering off of the SSRI, i find the anxiety and bruxism coming back and have to eat saltines for my stomach lining/stomach growling/churning just as i did years ago, when the anxiety caused an ulcer. 

should i continue to bite the bullet on the anxiety that's returning while i taper from the SSRI and wait until i'm done (in 2025) to begin tapering off of the benzo?

it kind of feels like i'm getting interdose withdrawals ...either from the quetiapine being all at once dosing at 8pm (with a half life of 6 hours, so by morning i'm in withdrawals already) 😒

or possibly from a reaction to my clonazepam doses...maybe the dose is no longer sufficient to prevent anxiety , maybe tolerance has been reached for the clonazepam and it just doesn't touch the anxiety anymore?

 

if the bruxism/mild headache is due to anxiety caused by the quetiapine short half life and nothing left in my system to prevent withdrawals when i wake up,  then maybe the SX of bruxism/mild headache could be mitigated by seperating my 8pm dose of quetiapine into 2 doses, in a similar fashion to the way that i'm using to seperate my gabapentin into smaller doses.

 

This sounds to me like a paradoxical reaction to clonazepam, which makes sense because you're also taking two other "brakes" throughout the day: gabapentin and quetiapine. Plus progesterone.

 

What effect does daily progesterone have on you? Why do you want to move it from 8 p.m.?

 

What is your current drug schedule? Just the drug schedule, please, not the entire spreadsheet.

 

Since you've just moved gabapentin around, I would let that change settle before making any other changes.

actually i have figured out how to simplify this even further.   i will simply do all the "chemistry"...

  • dissolving pills into liquids
  • drawing out the appropriate doses with a syringe
  • placing each med dose in a seperate baby food jar (labelled with permanent marker and clear packing tape just as i do my syringes) 
  • storing the baby food jar doses in my little fridge in my office until needed
  • rinsing out the flasks & inverting to dry
  • rinsing & taking apart the syringes to dry                                                                                                        ...at 5pm each day.

 

it will take me a half an hour or less each day, freeing up my time to do other things, and it will allow me to have my med doses pre-prepared and easy to take first thing in the morning without fumbling for equipment. it will also allow me to take doses of meds with me if i am away from home.

s this also a "thing" in withdrawals? does anybody else have rather complex "waking dreams" where it makes you question reality because during the dream things seem exactly as real as the rest of the waking day? is this a "normal" part of the brain damage?

I also have similar symptoms. Dreams are very real. There is disorientation and diffusion between reality and dream. Plus, I have time delays. Lost memories and things turning up in odd places and then tasks I feel I have completed but have not. It’s like “Memento”. On top of this,  I have noticed my memories quite disoriented, uncovered memories that i’d forgotten and re-experiencing memories for decades ago as if they were now.

A basic assumption would be that the drugs affect to hippocampus which is the memory centre?? Plus, I read a bit some time ago about perception and possibly locus correleus??? part of brain.. don’t quote me on it. Obviously brain is incredibly complex.

my specific chemical lobotomy was performed over the course of about 2 decades by 6 different psychiatrists (plus those i saw inpatient.) their favorite weapon of choice was seroquel/quetiapine. also known on the street as "qwell" and "baby heroin". our insurance paid for mine. 

 

and yet it pales in comparison to the benzos. a whole other injustice done to me, and one i've yet to experience the horrors of withdrawal from.

i am  slowly weaning off of the antipsychotic, and after that, the benzodiazepine.

then  Neurontin (aka "morontin" for the way it shrinks your brain, and prevents new brain synapses from forming).

fun fun fun.

 

anyways, all of this drugging has been completely uneccesary, in my opinion.

what i really needed was some good counselling and therapy to learn how to deal with my anxiety, and a good tuition...in nutrition! 

had i learned the correct way to eat, to control my blood sugar levels, and prevent highs and lows which got mislabelled as "bipolar disorder", i would have had a much better basis for solid physical and mental health, than what was done to me in the name of "medicine" (or should i say Big Pharma). 

 

over the span of 24 years, 1995-2019, i've been on over 53 different prescription drugs that were supposed to treat "psychiatric imbalances".

that is a crime in itself. some of these drugs have already been yanked from the market due to dangerous and sometimes lethal side effects.

but most of them remain in modern psychiaty's arsenal against the public. in addition i was "floxxed" with fluoroquinilone antibiotics and others.

 

these neurochemically altering drugs  cause such horrible side effects for such a long time, that even opiate and meth addicts are afraid of withdrawal from them. 

 

my current meds: 

 

HOLDing at 61mg quetiapine. down from 400mg in 10/2017. 

am on 1mg clonazepam since past abt 5 years, will begin DLMT on 9/16/2019.

am on 900mg gabapentin since being misdx with MS (turned out to be seroquel damage), will taper of that last.

am on HRT post-hyst since 2007, take 300mg progesterone nightly.

am on 0.1mg estradiol transdermal patch 2x weekly.

my specific chemical lobotomy was performed over the course of about 2 decades by 6 different psychiatrists (plus those i saw inpatient.) their favorite weapon of choice was seroquel/quetiapine. also known on the street as "qwell" and "baby heroin".  our insurance paid for mine. 

 

and yet it pales in comparison to the benzos. a whole other injustice done to me, and one i've yet to experience the horrors of withdrawal from.

i am  slowly weaning off of the antipsychotic, and after that, the benzodiazepine.

then  Neurontin (aka "morontin" for the way it shrinks your brain, and prevents new brain synapses from forming).

fun fun fun.

 

anyways, all of this drugging has been completely uneccesary, in my opinion.

what i really needed was some good counselling and therapy to learn how to deal with my anxiety, and a good tuition...in nutrition! 

had i learned the correct way to eat, to control my blood sugar levels, and prevent highs and lows which got mislabelled as "bipolar disorder", i would have had a much better basis for solid physical and mental health, than what was done to me in the name of "medicine" (or should i say Big Pharma). 

 

over the span of 24 years, 1995-2019, i've been on over 53 different prescription drugs that were supposed to treat "psychiatric imbalances".

that is a crime in itself. some of these drugs have already been yanked from the market due to dangerous and sometimes lethal side effects.

but most of them remain in modern psychiaty's arsenal against the public. in addition i was "floxxed" with fluoroquinilone antibiotics and others.

 

these neurochemically altering drugs  cause such horrible side effects for such a long time, that even opiate and meth addicts are afraid of withdrawal from them. 

 

my current meds: 

 

  • HOLDing at 61mg quetiapine. down from 400mg in 10/2017. 
  • am on 1mg clonazepam since past abt 5 years, will begin DLMT on 9/16/2019.
  • am on 900mg gabapentin since being misdx with MS (turned out to be seroquel damage), will taper of that last.
  • am on HRT post-hyst since 2007, take 300mg progesterone nightly.
  • am on 0.1mg estradiol transdermal patch 2x weekly.

ORA-pro/HUMCO suspension liquid

Hey,

 

Just wondering.. do you know if these suspension liquids work for antidepressant tapering? And which brand do you think is best?

 

I heard recently that my luvox doesn’t dissolve well in water

Withdrew from Luvox in 2015 to fast (took 2 months). (highest dose was 800mg..tapered off 50mg every week)

...
(Klonopin 1 mg for a month, second time on it, in May 2016 and tapered .25mg through early aug)
(Tapered off Klonopin as i went on Luvox)  
-Off klonopin-
....
Back on Luvox in 2016 of June..400 mg 8/26/2016.. 350mg 8/26/2016.. 300mg 09/04/2016.. 250mg 09/08/2016.. (tried to taper to 225mg 03/07/2017 didn't work).. 240mg  04/04/2017.. 230mg 04/27/2017.. 225mg 05/12/2017...223mg 09/28/2017...222mg 05/01/2018...220mg 05/21/2018...218mg 09/01/18...216mg 02/21/19  (03/15/2019-08/30/19)had a serve drug interaction with going into ketosis and an far infrared sauna.. took a long time to recover and find the right dose)  08/30/19...199mg...09/24/19...198mg (feeling more human)
