Any you should make sure you still brush your teeth gently with a soft toothbrush.

My dear chessiecat and @brassmonkey, thanks for the technique recommended, it works very good and salt water is very ok to make the gengitives very gentle.

I really appreciate this, gingitives was very bothering but now iam ok so thanks again and again.

___________________

Gernerally I still suffering with DP, I feel like lost and yesterday was bad for me.

What makes me bothered is that I feel iam 2 persons and the two are separated, the first one is who facing the current withdrawals and the other is who will complete the life after recovery.

I feel that the two persons are separated with a barrier and I dont know how the transition from one side of the barrier to the other side will be like. The big trouble is to accept this transition without a problem and another trouble is that I dont know, will I accept this easily or something else( I cant control to determine whether I will be like this or that).

Iam sure that I will be myself again at a time but the process itself is bad and silly, very silly.

I know all message is negative but, I know the next day will be better so, wait and see❤.

You're welcome.  I'm glad we were able to help and that it is working

 

You might be feeling worse at this time because of the antibiotics that you took.

Thanks chessica for the rapid reply of my prob. The next day replied to me fast and iam better today so I have to find out that the antobiotic was responsible for the hell days I lived since 3 days and till today.

Incredible for me that this antibiotic can make the WDs very bad to the limit of thinking of suicide and after my CNS become stable again, iam ok agian and want to complete; I think you have to stress the words of ( non drug techniques to cope), thats because it is very and top important not to put any type of chemistry to your brain while in withdrawals.

Thanks chessieca for giving me again the key of remembering not to add any chemistry at all until iam recovered.

Glad you are doing better! Antibiotics are awful for your microbiome. Broad spectrum antibiotics destroy all bacteria.... good and bad. I personally will never take one again in my life.

Thanks erell for always being supportive and before I had the notification that u commented into my thread, I wanted to pass by yours to remind u with your goal from the beidge from paroxetine to fluoxetine; bridging didnt fail and remember that u are doing something for making the withdrawals easier and easier.

Both of us will have a success story🙏.

Take care of yourself

Yes coco and really the difference from having antibiotics to not having them equal suicidal thoughts; not only antibiotics but alot of drugs that motivate the brain( peracetam for example), so a mistake of having these chemicals can make it further worse.

Being in WDs make us continue make mistakes( having bad food and taking drugs) but I think any one who is in withdrawals must be highly warned from any type of drug and it isnt a choice at all whether to take a drug or not.

Absolutely, live and learn! That’s how I learned about nutrition and how to get off these meds.

One of the suggestions in this link is to see a physical therapist.  One post mentions exercises to help with the dizziness.  A physical therapist might be able to suggest some exercises.

Dizziness, vertigo, light-headedness, rocking or swaying ...

Regarding heart problems, that's beyond our expertise here.  We do suggest if you have heart issues, have them checked out by a doctor.

The most common form of saltwater used for an antiseptic is called an isotonic solution and contains 9% salt. The easiest way to make it is 1/2 teaspoon salt to 1 cup warm water.

 

So, please forgive me if I"m incorrect on the math as I am in the middle of withdrawal! I'm trying to sort out making my own liquid and I'm reading contradicting information. This is a quote from a post from altostrata

"Your best bet would be to use a homemade isotonic saline solution (9% salt in water) which is made by dissolving 9 grams of table salt in 100mL of water. This mixture will last for a month or so in the refrigerator if you haven't added the drug to it.  Once the drug is added it will keep for about a week."

 

9 grams of salt is roughly 1.5 teaspoons. If you were making a 1 cup solution, which is 240ml, That would need about 3.5 teaspoons, no 1/2 a teaspoon. Again, I might be wrong! I just want to get it straight in my healing brain!

Hello eljay, 

Iam so sorry, I dont think I understand what u mean, do u ask the help.of brassmonkey?, here is my own information.

Yes, salt water helps me alot with gingivitis but to be honest, I dont consider the math but as I understand, 1/2 teaspoon is little and more salt is needed yes.

I add salt to water until I feel the water tastes salty and this help for sure( but I dont consider the math at all).

Do u think it is wrong to do this?

There are a lot of instructions online to make isotonic saline solution.  Most of them are using some variation of 1/2 teaspoon per cup of water. Unless you need a laboratory grade solution that will get you close enough. We are looking for a 9% solution which would involve dissolving 9 grams of salt in 1 liter of water which is just about the same as dissolving 1/2 teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of water. There are just under 4 cups of water in 1 liter of water, so 1/2 x 4 = 2 teaspoons plus a little to make the volume conversion.

Hi mustafa,

I'm sorry. I thought you were talking about the 9% salt solution used for proper tablet dissolution in a liquid titration. Apples and oranges. My apologies. 😕

Hi Brass Monkey,

Ok, now I'm really confused! This quote from altostrata's instructions "which is made by dissolving 9 grams of table salt in 100mL". 

But you're saying 9 grams in a liter of water. A liter is 1000ml, not 100ml. These two instructions are 10x difference in strength. I am a bit brain fogged so I may be missing something. Can you clarify?

Never mind dear❤,

I still have my advice to u not to consider math ; focus on having a not very salty solution and it should works.

This is only my experience and I hope nothing dangerous I say.

Dont mention any apologies please, we are one community and all friends.

Hi Brassmonkey,

It's in the 'tips for tapering off Lexapro' post here: It's toward the bottom of the post under 'do it yourself liquid'.
