Chicken made it to the other side of the road!

Well, it has been over two years since I took the final dose so I suppose I am a success story now. By the grace of God, I've made it here with no symptoms now. It was a nightmare at the time. You can read it here.

I started on an SSRI back in 1999. Looking back I don't think I ever really needed it, I was only magnesium deficient.  All my brain functions have returned to normal. It seems as if everything is as it was before taking the drug, minus just getting old. Hang in there people you will make it.

When on the SSRI I did, but everything is normal now.

Congrats on making it to the other side! You mention in your introduction that you used to deal with GAD. Did that also go away as well?

I don't have any GAD issues now. I truly believe that I was originally magnesium deficient. But of course, doctors are ready to throw a drug at the problem rather than find the root cause.  I have taken Magnesium Citrate now as a supplement since coming off the drugs and I will probably always take it.

Congratulations for your recovery. You mentioned you have had erectile dysfunction while on the drugs . Have you had them in withdrawals too? And when did it exactly resolve?
