Thanks, I’m just so desperate to feel better. I’ve never had any health issues before I went into withdrawal. 😪

Maybe I should try 3 mg?

 

That has to be your decision.  As I wrote earlier, you've been at 2.5mg for a bit less than three months, and often it takes longer for an updose to work.  I would give it longer.

Ok Thank you, it’s so difficult when I’m feeling desperate for help. I really appreciate your help. I think I will try to continue on 2.5 mg and hope it gets better with time. I’ve never felt more ill in my life. I hope this withdrawal hasn’t caused me more health problems besides withdrawal. Thanks again.

I';m wishing for good results on your tests.  It''s good you're having tests done.

Hi Bigbird,

 

I'm sorry and will be following your posts. The health issues may be coincidental  - not related to WD. ?

 

Hugs,

Thanks Guilietta. I’ve been nothing but healthy most of my life. Hopefully my blood work is fine, maybe it’s just my anxiety. Thanks for reaching out, I’m just feeling so low today.  I don’t see my doctor again  until Monday, but I can see my blood test results on line. Not that I will understand them, but they show flags.  Thanks again I really appreciate it.😊

Sometimes getting your lab results online is not always a good thing. ;)  It can fuel 'what if' and (more) anxiety.

 

Some/many lab results that are flagged as high, low, etc. -  may mean nothing. One simple example is a CBC - complete blood count. CBC,  which as you probably know, consists of many types of blood cells. Values  may outside the reference range - and still not have 'clinical significance.'  Thyroid too - the number is on the low side of normal most of the time - and a few months a patient gets a Low flag because the value is .1 outside the reference range.  I dont' really know too much else about it. :)

 

Maybe you can call the MD's office  for a call back or be on a cancellation list.  Sorry about more distress on top of everything. 🤗

Thanks Guilietta, I don’t have much choice except acceptance. Not much that I can do if something is wrong. He’s a nice young doctor and not at all pushy. Thanks for your kind words. 😊

Just an update, blood work shows everything in normal ranges. I’ll talk more with my doctor on Monday. Just need to understand the urine issue more, it may be nothing major. Just my anxious brain. Thanks for the support Gridley and Guilietta.😊

See - nothing wrong with the labs. :) As with the labs - having anxiety about the results of the test of the urine specimen) won't do anything but fuel anxiety. One thing at a time.

 

AAF: acknowledge, accept and float (I am still trying to learn this - and should right it on the back of my hand. ;)

Thanks Guilietta, anxiety is my problem. That’s how I ended up on the antidepressant in the first place. Lots of work to do on my part. AAF takes some work, thanks again.😊
