Good to here bout your success bruh . Congratulations. More healings coming your way in Jesus name . 

 

Please wanna ask your nutritional guide and how does your tinnitus and head ache stopped. Thanks 

 

Thanks, I really appreciate it. 

 

I follow The Plant Paradox by Dr.Gundry. It was the best $15 I ever spent in my life. He has all the foods outlined in his book. I am sure you can find a list of the Yes/No lists online. 

 

They haven't completely stopped..but I had a solid 5-6 months of constant headaches/tinnitus. They are now dramatically reduced and only happen every couple days for a few minutes here and there. I just keep going and power through as I know the windows are on the other side of the waves! Have a great day!

 I have been getting hammered with fatigue/anxiety for the last two days. 

 

Coco, hope you get relief soon. Fatigue is really hard. Anxiety also. Hang in there!

Bro don’t really have fatigue . I had it while I was taking the medication , my brain went cloudy suddenly, my muscles disappeared, kidney pain , chest tightness and pain , body fell flat and some weird stuff . I just wanna detox from marijuana but was placed on a psychotic drug. 

 

I thought I had MS BUT IM SURE I DONT . Just don’t know why they did that to me for no reason but sure Gods not dead and his watching . I hope I recover from this soon , is so not comfortable. Thanks for the sweet and encouragement bruh . We are in the dark but sure it won’t last cause light always prevails .

Thanks, It has been way better the last few days. I feel really good lately. 

 

On a sidenote, I quit my job. I am going back into the field I was educated in. I am a Journeyman Electrician. I feel way better than I did and am confident I can get back into this line of work with its physical and mental demands. I start on Monday... here we go :)!

Yes, this was my first week back. It went really well! My symptoms have been very minimal. Slight anxiety and fatigue has almost disappeared. So here to hoping I keep trending in the right direction! Everyday that passes is another day closer to being healed!!!

Today is 9 months Paroxetine free! Emotions are slowly returning and focus as well. Energy levels are WAY better than they were during the taper and for months afterwards. 
 

I have been able to play sports and workout. Which I was unable to do for many months during initial WD.
 

I had a bad evening of nutrition over the weekend and the next two days I had a few WD symptoms return. Headaches, tinnitus and the feeling of fire going through my veins. They have subsided now. It’s kind of mind blowing to me how much nutrition effects the WDs. But it is a nice reminder that I need to be disciplined with nutrition. 
 

I attribute being able to stay off of paroxetine this time to this forum, nutrition and a positive mindset. I had none of those variables in my previous attempts.... which all failed miserably. 
 

Time to keep it going! Remember everyday that passes is one more day closer to being healed!

I stick to the Dr.Gundry lifestyle which is a lectin limited food consumption. I went back to eating some lectin heavy foods (processed chicken(with tons of premade batter on it), bread, and some ceasar salad at a year end sports gathering and then some fast food afterwards. Next day I felt awful and had a fairly big spike in my WD symptoms. Went back to my regular eating habits and they subsided. 

 

Awesome! Thanks! :)

 

Absolutely, I fully plan on it! I have also almost completely reversed my autoimmune disease after coming off this drug. Which I was told had no effect on my body.......lies tell me sweet little lies. But now I know the cause of it and why my body did what it did.

Well last night was a huge eye opener for me. I originally went on this medication for social anxiety disorder, which I definitely had. I would just have big panic attacks in public spaces.... especially when alone, so crippling that I would not leave my house at times.  So i agreed to go watch my friends boxing match. Little did I know it was a massive event, tons of people in a tight environment. I was alone and before medication I would of not been able to do it, but now I am off the medication and have controlled my nutrition. I went for 4-5 hours and did not use alcohol to calm my nerves as I have in the past. Went there and had a blast, socialized with a bunch of strangers and had fun! 

 

Each day that passes is one day closer to being healed! :):):):)

Return of slight headaches and tinnitus. Very mild throughout the day. I did physically exert myself last night in sports. But this is the first time I have noticed a correlation between exercise an uptick in symptoms.

Hey @Cocopuffz17, wanted to ask you, have you followed a specific diet? I'm trying refined sugar-free. I'm not vegetarian either, also trying to eat as unprocessed as possible.

Great question. I absolutely have, I follow The Plant Paradox by Dr.Gundry. I have been following it for over a year. It is what made me feel so good that I had the courage to come off this medication. I have been around 94% compliant on following it. I definitely know when I don’t as I almost always get WDs after eating crappy food. His results and success stories speak for themselves and I have completely changed my view on standard food guidelines. 
 

It is the only variable I have changed since my other attempts of coming of this medication that did not succeed.

I notice you take fish oil at 1200 mg is that the pill total amount or the DHA amount ? I have been taking 8000 mg with 1000 mg of that being DHA, I am fairly confident that is why I didn’t get brain zaps like so many people say as they mention fish oil helping. I had been taking that supplement before my tapering started.

Things have been going good. Today I had a strong metallic taste in my mouth for most the day. Reminds me of chewing on tinfoil. Slight headache, fatigue, and brain fog. Everyday that passes is one day closer to being healed!

Yes, I am extremely happy that they are improving! There were times I thought the symptoms would never get better and wanted to reinstate. So glad I had the guidance/help from the members/mods on here! 
 

My long term memory was never really effected, but short term was brutal. I could not focus or remember anything directly after doing it. It has improved a fair amount but I know it will get better. 
 

You have a great day as well Mustafa!

10 months off wooohooo! 😁😁
 

Things have been well. Minor symptoms compared to the worst part of WDs. These minor symptoms are headache,tinnitus and metallic taste in mouth.
 

My job has been going well. Working 12-14 hr days. A few short months ago I could barely function on a 8 hr day. I have returned to playing all my sports and doing my workout regime..... there was a point when I didn’t have the energy to do one push up. I now do 80-100 each day!

 

Remember everyday that passes is one day closer to being healed! Mindset has helped me a ton going through this journey. I’ve always viewed it as these symptoms have come to go, not to stay!

This is an interesting side note. I always had trouble with blood not wanting to clot. Since I’ve been off of the medication my blood clots way better on cuts. Did anyone else notice a similar result ?

Thank you! 

Yes, this is true. Work definitely helped me be distracted from the brunt of WDs, although very challenging at times. Yes, going through this has reattached me to my body and I pay very close attention to how things effect it. Ty!

Well, this is interesting... I feel awful, but relieved at the same time. Because the feeling is not from withdrawals. I caught a cold and it is whooping my ass! But yay it is not WDs!
