If you need to have any fillings or extractions, you can ask the dentist to use an injection which does not contain adrenaline.

Hello hanna, Iam very sorry i missed your message, i was about to reply to u the day u posted it in but i missed this. I hope you are fine. I visit SA from time to time to feel connecte

Hi @Gridley, and @Altostrata, Today and up on your advice, iam not fasting because this is the true decision; iam really shocked of being not fasting and eating during the day instead of fasting

Wouaw!!! This is huge ! how glad I am to read this! See how much you've healed?! Keep on the good work dear friend, we will get there ❤️

Iam so sorry @Altostrata,  but I only asked if visiting a dentist may be of relation to symptomts, iam sorry for bother ❤.

My dear @ChessieCat,

Yes, I wanted to ask about this but I dont think there is a doctor near me who can do the fillings without adrenaline; I think I will wait some more time until I see hiping to recover soon to be able to visit a dentist but I have a question too that how can adrenaline affect the symptomts?

Thanks alot chessica for u.

i wasn't on a certain drug all the period. i took many drugs many times and for no very long period but to simplify.

--fluvoxamine maleate100 mg + amisulpride 200mg------started july 2012 and total taper in february 2015 ( 9 months without drugs then)

--sertraline 100mg -------started november 2015 and total taper (withoud reduction slowly) in november 2016( 4 months withoud drugs then).

--sertraline 100mg + quetiabine 25mg ( started in mars 2016 and for 7 months) then fluvoxamine maleate 100mg again for another 7months and after that a something like to use every drug for 14 days and for about 1.5 years.

--my last drug was trintellix 10 mg ( used it in 12/2018and total taper in 4/2019).

symptomts i have now ( bad concentration and problems in short and long memory+ bad depersonalization).

Hi @mustafa

Just wanted to drop by your thread and send you healing vibes and hug🥰

Sorry to see you have these dental issues, hope it will sort out soon.

 

 

Prescribed Paxil 20 mg year 2000 for panic attacks.

Many attempts through out the years to quit.

2019 tapered from 20 mg to 10 mg. Got stuck there, decided to bridge with Fluoxetine. 
2020 March off Fluoxetine 

2020 Oct- nov started deteriorating, followed by severe crash. 2021 Reinstated fluoxetine by small amount, until I reach 9 mg

Tapering 10% every 4-6 weeks and longer holds if necessary 

12/5 2021- 8.5 21/5 8.0 15/6 7.5 20/6 7.2 changed to liquid tapering 10/7  7.0  19/7 6.5 20/8 5.8 20/9 5.2

Sorry you're having dental issues.  There's no other anesthetic in Ecuador other than novocaine (that of course has adrenaline in it).  I recently had some dental work done with quite a lot of novocaine, and it made me me more agitated for a couple of days, then it calmed down.  The next time the dentist didn't have to use as much novocaine and I didn't have any agitation.

 

I hope you're doing well, Mustafa.

My dear erell

Thank u so much for dropping here to ask about me, this means alot for me, alot of support.

Hmmm actually, no significant ups but there are some downs occur as a result of having drugs for stomach or pain killers but iam totally fine and of course I feel improvements however, they are slow but iam fine, slow improvements is better than being on antidepressants of course, I wont hesitate to bear anything because I want to be off antidepressants ( the deep hell).

I really think alot of u but symptomts make it hard to read updates of my friends on SA, I hope u are fine erell and take good care please of yourself.

My friend gridley, now I feel my topic is taking the right path 😂, I used to find support from u ❤.

I really expect that adrenaline will make symptomts worse and I based this expectation up on what happened to me when I had pain killer for my tooth, I suffered 4 days symptomts agitation so I should be careful; I hope the dentist isnt obliged to use adrenaline and I will tell him about this and I hope it goes fine.

Good day for u gridley, stay well.

Hello erell,

It is really a very long time since I last typed a reply on SA but I vusit it alot.

Well, there are ups and downs but I still suffer in withdrawals and the good thing is that there are improvements but, iam.not able to get assured about the symptomts and I dont feel iam secured.

I really think of u the most of time I spend on SA and read your updates but, u didnt type an update since alot too, the last update was that u felt partially normal while shopping, right?,I was too happy to read this.

I hope u are ok and feeling relaxed.

Generally for me, iam doing everything carefully, eating carefully and exerting efforts carefully too, I still with no work, imade an earlier decision not to go for work at all until iam.symptomts free.

Hello @Altostrata,

I hope u are fine. 

The last few months I was holding a full free sugar diet, I stopped eating all sources of sugar and this happened gradually. I was depending on avocados as my fruit need but I have a problem now. I cant get avocado right now. It is ok for me to stop all fruit( because their sugar content) but after some days from stopping fruits(45 days for example), I feel down and I feel also need to eat some fruit and here is the problem, I dont bear at all eating fruit and I dont know why, is this because I stopped sugar for alot of time and hince having it again is bad for me?. During writing this post, I feel severe synptomts as a result of having apples.

my own expectation is I felt bad because I havent eaten fruits since alot and if I continued to have fruits again and again, these effects will go away but, I cant dare to have risk to do this.

Do u have any advice concerning thia matter pls?.

How about eating vegetables? Vegetables are good for you.

 

I'm not a dietician, but they say the fiber, nutrients, and enzymes in fruit outweigh the risk of any sugar content (unless you have severe diabetes).

No, you don't have to eat fruits if you are eating vegetables. Are you also eating meat, cheese, or eggs?

For alot of times, I hoped not to have DP as my main symptom.the problem now is that I dont know at all what is going to happen. How it will look like after improvement. These are my main fears since I first typed on SA. I typed this post to get some support. Sometimes I feel very weak inside, physically and mentally and in my soul and other times I feel ok, iam ready to start life again.

I really hope I end up this journey safely.I dont want to resort to any other calculations of drugs. I hope to be, and for ever, drug free.

None of us know what symptoms are going to show up or how long they will last.  You will end tis journey safely and have made great improvements since you first started posting here.  You will be fine.  It just takes time, more time than we would like, but in th end you will be safe and drug-free and a stronger person after surviving withdrawal.

I need some filling in my teeth and when iam in a wave, my teeth start to give terrible pain for me. I hope the problem of teeth stay as it is for now until iam able to visit a dentist.

yes i can imagine how sever teeth pain is. Just try to keep yourself calm and relax as much you can. It will be alright soon. You are very near to heal completely.  what are your symtoms when you are in wave ?

 

my hunger pangs are still like before. i cant take alot of proteins as then i get constipation. i know because I started kieto diet in nov 2020 which really improved my hunger and also reduced anxiety upto 60 % but there are few drawbacks of kieto and severe constipation is one of them. So i m on regular diet. Please confirm can you walk without any cortisol surges and extreme exusation. if i walk i feel termers in legs with extreme sweating which makes me panic. Will this be alright with time ?

Hello @Altostrata, I hope u are fine.

I need your advice pls.

For a very long time, I stopped eating all fruits as they contain sugar. I think my brain used to the absense of the fruits and became sensitive to all of them. The problem now is sometimes I feel down alot of times and I feel a desire to eat fruits but once I start to eat them,I hit strong symptomts and I become obliged to stop them again. I dont know, can I gradually but these fruits in my body again to reduce the suffer from eating them!?, or it is no difference between eating little or eating alot, that my brain will be sensitive to any much of fruits. Do u have an advice pls?

12.2017-02.2018 Mirtazapine - started adverse reactions after 2 months use and stopped without problems

04.2018 Amitryptyline 25mg

01.2020 starting Amitryptyline withdrawal, after a month of too fast tapper (from 25mg to 10mg) developed migraines, didnt connect the dots. 

02.2020 went to ER with migraine, got IV torecan and developed severe akathisia (severe restless feeling throughout the body, panic, constant fear) and landed in psych ward. Was 4 days on benzos, they started Duoleksetine but after 3 days shaking that it caused wasnt improving so I asked to stop. They stopped and upped Amitryptyline to 30mg

03.2020 coming home and started Amitryptyline withdrawal again. I wasnt aware of need of slow tappering, psych alway told me to cut in half for few days. Decided to do it slowe then she recommended, but it was still too fast.Cut to 20mg when got home (so was on 30mg just a week). 

04.2020 Cut to 15mg. Felt amazing for a week, then cut to 13,5mg. Felt amazing another week. Cut to 12mg. After a week developed migraines again. Then connected dots that they are withdrawal migraines. Tried to up my doze again cause migraines were severe. Took 15 mg and got adverse reaction, akathisia came back, had jerking brain zaps all night long, didnt sleep. So next day took 12 mg again.

Since then (25.04.2020) Im on 12mg again. Im on 12mg since 14.04 total but was one updoze in the meantime that made me worse.

We've discussed eating fruit before. If you react badly to a fruit, stop eating it.

 

Please do not tag me about eating fruit again. Thank you.

Hello @Altostrata& @Gridley

Like every year, ramadan started in which iam fasting. During the moments iam writing the post i woke up 15 minutes ago and have to be fasting up to more 2 and half hours.

Well i dont feel too bad but my brain doesnt stop tricks and increasing my fears: what if i got so down as a result of fasting and what if my symptomts got too high!!.. the last time i had food was at 3:30am, this is called sohor and i got enough amount of food which i think them enough to make me bear the absense of food.

I know u can do nothing for me, this is just to get rid off some of fears.

Thank u,

Mustafs
