Coucou @Erell 

 

Merci :)

 

J'arrive toujours pas à croire à mon histoire...

Me retrouver à attendre sans savoir si remonter aurait été mieux.

J'ai tant de regrets... J'ai tellement eu de malchance. 

C'est dur avec la famille... Toutes mes pensées pour toi

On a parlé avec mon conjoint hier un peu de W/D. Il sait en gros que les médicaments me rendent malade. Il m'a dit que j'aurais jamais dû prendre l'AD, que les médecins prescrivent trop de médicaments... Alors que les tous premiers jours de l'AD en août 2018 que j'étais très mal que je voulais arreter il me disais : écoute le médecin, arrête de regarder internet. Alors je n'ai plus regardé sur Internet et malheureusement je n'y avais pas à l'époque encore trouvé leurs méfaits et difficultés de sevrage. 

 

Ayons espoir ma belle. Courage.

 

Bisous

Coucou,

 

Je sais pas trop dire si ça a un effet... C'est très dur de toute façon. Peut-être que je dors un peu moins bien, mais ça dépend des nuits, je sais pas si c'est lié, je pense baisser très doucement. Après c'est parfois mon conjoint qui me réveille aussi.^^

Règles aujourd'hui, ça peut jouer.

 

Là je vais aller pleurer dans la chambre, je sens que ça vient !

Émotions, émotions ! J'apprends à l'instant que ma belle-sœur est à la maternité : petite nièce arrive, trois semaines en avance. ❤️  

 

Courage à toi @Erell

 

Bisous.

 

Hello,

 

I can not really say if it has an effect ... It's very hard anyway. Maybe I sleep a little less well, but it depends on the nights, I do not know if it's related, I think to drop very slowly. After that my spouse sometimes wakes me up too.

Periods today, it can play.

 

I'm going to cry in the room, I feel like it's coming!

Emotions, emotions! I learn at the moment that my sister-in-law is at the maternity ward: little niece arrives, three weeks in advance. ❤️

 

Courage to you @Erell

 

Kisses.

I started with +/- 180 mg on 29 november for 5 days and now +/- 150 mg. All is in my diary.

Difficultés to be précise to taper.

OK understand now, thanks @Erell

I am sure you know L-tryptophan affects Serotonin levels.

Your current taper means you have reduced by 25% quickly.

If you feel any uptick in symptoms be sure to pause the taper until they pass.

OK, comprenez maintenant, merci @Erell

Je suis sûr que vous savez que le L-tryptophane affecte les niveaux de sérotonine.

Votre cône actuel signifie que vous avez réduit de 25% rapidement.

Si vous ressentez une légère augmentation des symptômes, assurez-vous de mettre le cône en pause jusqu'à ce qu'il passe.

Yes. Ok Sass.

Hi,

 

Months after months, stomach burnings, spasmes and nausea are worse and worse on the base line. Pancréas is burning again. I think I dont tolérate escitalopram... (Very sensible with stomach and bowels since a lot of years). But with sertraline în caps  I didn't had such problèms, but when I tryed to titrate it I had.

I take a lot of care with what I eat or drink, I drink only water since one month, even on morning for breakfast.

 

I suppose to go back to sertraline   masterful preparation   could be a big risk?

 

For L-tryptophan, how slow might I taper? It seems to be too fast as @Sassenach say.

The 2 last times I tapered it in one week : no problèm.

 

Thank you So much, if you had some advices. :)

 

Vega.

Mon amie,

Comme je te comprends! Depuis 3 mois j'ai passé tant de journées dans cet état! Les pensées suicidaires sont très très dures à supporter, mais on peut les dépasser et c'est exactement Ce que l'on va faire.

Ce qui m'aide un peu quand je suis en état de crise : me répéter sans cesse que tout ceci n'est que temporaire, même quand je n'arrive pas à y croire, je le répète inlassablement. 

 

Tu n'es pas en train de devenir une personne toxique : tu es une personne qui souffre actuellement, et pas par ta faute. Laisse les autres voir ce qu'ils peuvent supporter, toi tu ne dois t'occuper que de toi.

 

Je sais à quel point il est dur de se raisonner dans ces moments là. 

Si tout ce que tu peux faire aujourd'hui est d'attendre que la journée se termine, alors c'est ok. Parce que le principal c'est de faire en sorte que tu sois en sécurité. 

 

Souviens toi : tout ceci n'est qu'une étape.

 

Je t'embrasse, très fort ❤

 

(How I understand you ! Since 3 months, I spent too much days in this state. Suicidal thoughts are very very hard To handle, but it is possible To go through, and that's exactly what we are going To do.

What helps me a bit when I'm in crisis is To repeat To myself that all this is only temporary. Even when I can't believe it, I repeat it, untiringly.

 

You're not becoming a toxic person: you are a person who suffers for now, and it is not your fault. Let others décide what they can bear, you only take care of yourself. 

 

I know how hard it is To be touched by logic in crisis, so if all you can do today is To wait for the day To end, it is ok. The most important for you now is To stay safe. )

Coucou @Erell

 

Je sais mais j'y arrive plus.

J'ai laissé un message à ma psychiatre pour avoir un RV urgent. Dernier recours avant l'hôpital.

Je vais peut être prendre un gros risque en tentant de redemander Sertraline.

Tout mon système digestif est en feu en plus du reste.

Je suis de pire en pire. J'ai même failli prendre 2 gouttes d' escitalopram et me suis ravisée : il me brûle de toute façon.

Je connais ce que donnent les ravages de mon système digestif : ce sont eux qui m'ont tout déréglé en juin 2018 et m'ont donné envie de mourir. C'est là que j'ai commencé le xanax...qui m'avait vite calmée à petites doses...

Je pense que ces PB digestifs aggravent W/D.

Pourtant, vers 9h je me visualisais aller voir en voiture ma petite nièce.

J'ai été interrompue en séance d'hypnose alors que j'étais bien et tout est parti en vrille. C'était mon père qui m'appelait. J'ai pas répondu et j'ai voulu terminer ma séance d'hypnose mais impossible : trop inquiète. Je l'ai rappelé et comme je me doutais : mauvaise nouvelle... 

 

Faut dire aussi que j'ai mes règles depuis 3 jours. ^^

 

Je voudrais être seule à la maison aujourd'hui !!! 

 

Je m'en veux même d'avoir posté tout ça car je sais que tu lis. Et il ne te faut rien d' anxiogène, que tu prennes soin de toi.

 

Pense à toi, ma chère Erell, pense à toi surtout. ❤️

 

Bisous

 

Vega 

 

 

Hello @Erell

 

I know but I can not do it anymore.

I left a message to my psychiatrist for an urgent RV. Last resort before the hospital.

I may be taking a big risk trying to ask for Sertraline again.

My entire digestive system is on fire in addition to the rest.

I am getting worse and worse. I even nearly took 2 drops of escitalopram and changed my mind: it burns me anyway.

I know what the ravages of my digestive system give: they were the ones who upset me in June 2018 and made me want to die. This is where I started xanax ... which had quickly calmed me down in small doses ...

I think these digestive PBs worsen W / D.

However, around 9am I saw myself go see my little niece by car.

I was interrupted in a hypnosis session while I was well and everything went into a spin. It was my father calling me. I did not answer and I wanted to finish my session of hypnosis but impossible: too worried. I called him back and as I suspected: bad news ...

 

Must also say that I have my period for 3 days. ^^

 

I would like to be home alone today !!!

 

I even blame myself for posting all this because I know you're reading. And you do not need to worry, you take care of yourself.

 

Think of you, my dear Erell, think of you especially. ❤️

 

Kisses

 

Vega

greeting vega 
You have to hold on, it's hard but you have to go through it. 
 your digestive problems may be due to your weaning. 
then you can always go to a gastroenterologist to reassure yourself.  Get these ideas out of your head, be confident and you will succeed. 
and just come here when you're not well. We'll always be there for you.
and thank you for passing through my wall. 
I kiss you and think about you. 😘

salut vega 
il faut que tu tiennes le coup , c'est dur mais il faut passer par là . 
 tes problèmes digestifs c'est peut être du  à ton sevrage . 
après tu peux toujours aller voir un gastro pour te rassurer.  Enlèves toi ces idées de la tête , sois confiante et tu vas y arriver . 
et justement viens ici quand tu n 'es pas bien . on sera toujours la pour toi .
et merci d'être passé sur mon mur 
je t 'embrasse et pense fort à toi .

Coucou @rola

 

Je suis persuadée que seroplex me brûle.

J'ai connu ça avec d'autres médicaments anti-inflammatoires + IPP ça m'a donné d'abord horrible fatigue, puis diarrhées, puis brûlures et pancréatite. Ensuite angoisses et envie de mourir soudaines qui ont mené à prendre xanax.

Sertraline en titration m'a brûlée aussi et bien d'autres. Cela détruit mon estomac et mes intestins.

 

Là : même schéma.

 

Si je réduis pas cette inflammation ça n'ira pas. Je le sais. Je suis pliée en deux.

 

J'ai déjà vu un gastro. Je connais ce problème d'inflammation. Il me conseille de la glutamine qui m'a bien aidée par le passé, mais c'est pas compatible avec mes médicaments. Précurseur de glutamate qui agit sur les récepteurs GABA.

Je ne peux pas prendre non plus du charbon activé : incompatible aussi 

 

 

Hello @rola

I am convinced that seroplex burns me.

I have experienced this with other anti-inflammatory drugs + IPP it gave me at first horrible fatigue, then diarrhea, then burns and pancreatitis. Then anxiety and sudden desire to die that led to taking xanax.

Sertraline in titration and other médications. It destroyers my stomach and bowel.

Here: same scheme.

If I do not reduce this inflammation it will not go away. I know it. I am bent in half.

 

I have already seen a gastro. I know this problem of inflammation. He advises me glutamine that has helped me in the past, but it is not compatible with my medication. Precursor of glutamate that acts on GABA receptors.
I can not take activated charcoal: incompatible too.

 

 

Merci :)

 

Bisous.

greeting vega 
try to ask here if you can change the seroplex with another antidepressant
because if it causes you all these problems, it's better to change it maybe the prozac. 
even if I'm against it because you don't know how you're going to react with another antidepressant. 
courage I am with you wholeheartedly 
kisses 😘

salut vega 
essaye de demander ici si tu peux changer le seroplex avec un autre antidépresseur
car si il te cause tous ces problèmes vaut mieux le changer peut être par ,le prozac  . 
meme si, je suis contre car tu ne sais pas comment tu vas réagir avec un autre antidépresseur . 
courage je suis de tout coeur avec toi 
bisous

Oui, on ne sait pas la réaction :(

 

Quoique je fasse c'est risqué.

Sertraline me causait moins de problèmes que Venlafaxine et seroplex. Prozac, jamais pris alors... Encore plus hasardeux.

Les changements ne sont pas du tout bons, je le sais maintenant et comme je regrette...

En plus, je sais que je pourrai pas faire de diminution plus petites que le mg...Quelle galère... Peut-être que la titration passera à faibles doses ? Aucune idée.

Je n'en suis pas là. Il faut que j'empeche mon système digestif de se deteriorer et espérer une stabilisation. Pas question de sevrage pour l'instant 

 

Dans quel pétrin je me suis mise en écoutant des conseils farfelus. 😧.

 

Bisous et merci à toi.

 

Vega 

 

 

Yes, we do not know the reaction :(

 

Even though I do it is risky.

Sertraline caused me fewer problems than Venlafaxine and seroplex. Prozac, never taken then ... Even more hazardous.

The changes are not good at all, I know it now and as I regret ...

In addition, I know that I can not make a smaller decrease than the mg ... What a problem ... Maybe the titration will pass at low doses? No idea.

I'm not here. I must prevent my digestive system from deteriorating and hope for stabilization. No question of weaning for the moment

 

In what trouble I started listening to wacky advice. 😧.

 

Kisses and thank you.
