Which drug are you speaking about?

Hello Shep

 

Escitalopram. 

I know I tapered it brutally. That's why I went on this forum. 

Even if I know that it is possible that I have consequences of benzo W/D too. 

 

(Last prazepam taper 2 September - 0,10 mg x 3, and before since month of may, I tapered 2% current dose every 21 days : usual protocol of French forum) 

 

Thank you if you had an advice. 

I think that antidepressant W/D Is the worse I have between Antidepressant and prazepam. 

 

If you don't know, I understand. 

 

Thank you

 

Vega.

Yes Shep I remember it well. 

 

I didn't made any change since and it is really really worse, like if I was cold turkey. Physical symptoms (back, neck, jaw, head , brain bad sensations aches, contractions, burnings, sensations of electricity  tremors) and  neuro- emotions are horrible. It is difficult to hold in my legs : muscles weakness, tremors

Arms and legs are burning too but I can bear it. 

Sensibility to light and noises again : it had disappeared. 

Depression again  it had reduced. 

 

I have the worst symptoms I have ever had. 

 

If I understand your point of view has not changed. 

 

I forced me to walk 20 mn today, really hard but I did it. 

 

Thank you so much Shep! 

 

Vega.

Vegalia, I believe all these tips you're sharing with the French forum should be helpful:

 

Everyone here has a trail of mistakes that brought them to this place, please do not blame yourself.

 

I can see you're trying to find a solution in your history in this post:

 

You need to attach your drug intake for each of the events you list. For example, what combination of drugs were you taking in July, August, September, and October? You've tried to explain, but the detail is too confusing for me to follow. You've made changes almost continually. You will need to put whatever events you consider to be significant in an easy-to-understand chronological form.

 

Even so, your symptoms may not be resolved by the perfect drug recipe. It could be that over the months, your digestive system has become more sensitive or experienced more erosion from the smoking.

 

I can understand why you would want to make a relatively simple change in your escilatopram dose rather than the more difficult task of quitting smoking. But because of the possibility some of your symptoms are from smoking, whatever antidepressant withdrawal symptoms you might have are unclear. If you subtracted the stomach-burning symptom, nausea, and some of the pain from your symptom pattern, what would be left? Can you try doing that by reducing smoking?

 

I can't think of a way to resolve your current situation other than 1) Keep your drug intake consistent, stop changing it; 2) Help your nervous system calm down with gentle exercise; 3) Work on the symptoms that may not be drug-related, such reducing smoking to lessen the stomach-burning and pain. As you know, long-term smoking has bad neurological effects, too.

 

After you are a few months off cigarettes, we can look at your symptom pattern again.

 

By the way, my brother was a heavy cigarette smoker all his adult life. He lost a lung to cancer a couple of years ago. The cancer may have just recurred. I asked him why he continued to smoke after our mother, also a heavy smoker, lost a lung to cancer. He said he thought it would never affect him. Please do not make this mistake.

Thank you Altostrata, thank you so much, 

 

Before to take benzo,  reduced cigarettes to 5-7 a day in intention to stop... All my work time I didn't smoked with no problem, only at house. 

My mother died of cancer of bladder which can related with cigarette, even if she stooped to smoke she was 40 years old. . My father has bowel cancer which can be in relation with cigarette and alcohol. I'm angry to smoke  you know... To smoke is now compulsive : I smoke but don't appreciate it, like a obsessional compulsive trouble... 

 

I already stop smoking 5 years. Stupid addiction, I know. I promised my father to stop smoking and a friend of my age (41 years old) who fight with cancer ( but not in relation with tobacco.,) 

 

I will reduce slowly in first time. I have a plan. -;1 cigarette a week like Shep Sayed could be good. To fast = to much stress. 

 

If I can't walk I have find exercises to do. I made today because my legs muscles are a catastrophe : they have reduce a lot, because of not enough activity since 3 months. I have made a fight to be able to walk with my mother: several surgeries and hard treatments and it was not sure that I can walk one day. . I began to walk I was 2 years old : victory. I  can always walk even if I can't run anymore since long time. I must not forget this and assure me to walk so old it will be possible. 

 

 

--> good motivations. 

 

I make gentle exercises for nervous system bevery days  :)

 

I will try to answer you more clear tomorrow. To  be concise and not say details is a difficult  : it is my personality and it comes of my literary studies too sometimes a problem...Not natural to be concise for me : I will do my best, I promise. 

 

I am sorry for your brother and your mother  Altostrata. 

 

Thank you so much. 

 

Vega.

Hello,

 

A small passage to thank you for the time spent with me

 

I try to keep the strength I have left to try to see which hospital I can go to. It's dramatic for me to get there.

 

My nervous system was very damaged and I arrived too late on your forum unfortunately. I can no longer fight and can no longer function to survive my basic needs. I'll be honest, I updated to 1.60 mg 5 days ago. I broke down.

 

I am in an emergency because I no longer want to live. I have had a lot of great things in my life and I  what I want to is just die in peace now. 

 

It is too hard  psychically, psychologically and physically. To much symptoms and too hard 

 

I would only like one thing ... which I will not say....but I do not know how to go about it for it to succeed. 

 

I am not as strong as many of you. My life is wasted as well as that of those I love, starting with the man I love, love of my life. I can't bear see him suffering anymore. 

 

And I can't suffer so hard anyomore. I make self care all day hypnosis : almost all day, little exercises, I force me to walk... but...

 

Thank you to those who supported and helped me. You  couldn't make more for me. 

 

With lot of love ❤. 

 

Vega

Vegalia, are you reducing your cigarette smoking? Withdrawal from that can cause a lot of emotional discomfort, too.

 

Prazepam can cause fatigue and depression.

 

More chronological history after July 31, 2019 would be helpful.

Hello Altostrata, 

 

1. I reduce but a little. 13/14. 15 before. 

 

2. Yes. I have things of agressivity by myself again too. 

 

3. Ok. It will be long for me to find it. I didn't made diary but I can find what I wrote on French forum tomorrow morning. It is late in France and I have a migraine. 

 

I have had information to the "best" Clinic I can find, even if I know it isn't a good solution. 

 

Thank you so much. I didn't thought have an answer. 

Thank you. 

 

Vega

My CNS has a lot of damage. I feel me like I'm crazy and definitely lost. My aches and  emotional spiral are too hard. Don't have strength to fight anymore. 

I can't live to alone and make basic self care anymore. For my companion it is too hard too take care of me. He is in depression. 

I think I have made error with prazepam today and 3 days ago but not sure... These two day maybe 4,75 mg x 2 an morning. A lot of confusion... I didn't want to do it... : confusion. I forget to record my doses when I always did

Since two days I have compulsive obsessional troubles. I never had. 

I think I can be violent and dangerous.

Hi, 

 

Nobody can know but a bad reaction is possible.

Escitalopram reinstatement at 1,60 mg + what I did with prazepam (and don't wanted to do) 

Stomach less burning.... Nausea. 

Muscle a little less contracted. 

Neuro-emotions less awful. No anxiety! 🤨 I am more motivated to do activities but... 

But all body more and more burning ++++ since today, with tinglings, tremors. It is burning legs, aches and arms under the skin 9/10 or more? 

Little palpitations.

A little tinnitus (new) but not important. 

 

Head ache very very hard. 

I think I must see a doctor. 

 

Good luck to everybody! 

 

Kisses

 

Vega

Good evening, 

 

I have a question if someone had  a point of view. 

 

I have always very hard burnings in back, shoulders, nape, until temples, migraines. 

 

I have burnings in arms and burnings and now  itching under the skin of legs. However, Il don't have any rash. 

Could it be intolerance, adverse reaction? Or is it a frequent symptom? 

 

Thank you. 

 

Have a good day. 

 

Vega.

Coucou, 

 

Rien de bien nouveau... Toujours en enfer...Ça stagne avec des vagues et énormément de symptômes physiques : toujours ces brûlures corporelles et sensations désagréables dans la tête et troubles emotionnels très costauds. Retour d'akhatisie interne parfois. La liste serait tellement longue à faire... 

 

Je ne peux pas vivre vraiment à mon rythme pour me reposer entre toutes les prises à faire et mon conjoint... 

 

Je n'ai plus de troubles visuels. Je dors mieux : 6-7 h. Moins de brûlures d'estomac, mais beaucoup de soucis digestifs. 

 

J'ai beaucoup de moments de grosse asthénie voire confusion. 

 

Hier soir j'ai eu une quasi fenêtre de deux heures avec symptômes supportables. 

 

Je reduis doucement l-tryptophane. 1/4 de la gélule actuellement. Toujours à 1,60 mg d'escitalopram. 

 

J'ai enlevé le gluten et le lactose de mon alimentation. J'essaie de moins fumer avec plus ou moins de succès, on va dire que c'est plutôt plus que moins,  de succès.^^

 

Bisous. Courage à toi. 

 

Lætitia.

6 am : wake with legs burnings, nausea, no more pics of cortisol. Back, nek  nape burnings and contracted. 

it has a little reduced, it increase again.

Hello vegalia,

How you feel now!!❤️.

Hi Mustafa :)

 

I feel me always very, very bad...

aches and burnings are very hard. Terrible yesterday.

Today I am very nervous, agitated with internal akhatisie again...

I am so tired and often hopeless. Have terrible mood and thinks...

Always in hell...but it seems hell is not forever.

 

I hope improvement since September and I don't have, on the contrary 

Little symptoms have disappeared but only bearable symptoms... which I could live 

The worsted are always here, never desappaered always too hard and increase with waves. Each wave seems worse the that the last.

 

I am sorry to be so negative... That's why in don't write here anymore. Nobody has solutions with my drugs.

My psychiatrist prescribed me Laroxyl for aches... I don't take it of course.

 

I don't know if I should increase or reduce seroplex, so I am always at 1,60 mg...I don't know if it is a good choice.

I feel me like a cold turkey... but I m not.

 

Monday a friend drived me to osteopath, but I am not sure it was a good idea...

I try a lot of things for going better and don't have success. It is difficult to accept.

 

I'm fighting to have help with no other drugs for my aches in a center for aches with multiple therapies. I live in country, can't drive and therapist are far... I try to find solutions but administration is very complicated in France. However I know we are lucky for a lot of things with our health system, but not for all. 

 

I feel me alone, very alone with my suffer. My friends and my family are far. My companion don't help me for nothing and make my situation worse with his attitude. Don't drive me to doctor or care, don't make shopping, or go to pharmacy for me : nothing. Of course no support. He is very angry if I cry. He is toxic for me, it is not new but it is worse.

I try to find social help for housework. I don't manage to do it anymore...the aches are too hard.

 

 

Thank you for your words. Thanks a lot.

I hope you are better.

 

kisses

 

Vega.

I don't know whether you are meaning to say that u believe in improvement and I hope you are .

Unfortunately, because we stay long in WDs, this becomes disturbing for people around us but I always assure myself that this condition isn't very disabling for us and other people could live through the same conditions; I was back to my parents today and got upset when mom told me iam wasting my age without work, this was very, very upsetting but I rembered again that this will be a memory and I will be effective again.

I know how upset and hurt and isolated you feel but when we remember that not only us are feeling this way, then the feeling of isolation is hiding and we become ok with our suffer of isolation.

It is our challenge, I always say, when iam ok, I would be a leader because I would accept more adventures, I won't be afraid or avoid anything like before that I actually faced very hard things and was able to endure.

You just update your accepting for your challenge again ; hard times may be coming for me and for u but every time we can motivate ourselves, don't waste it.

Good night my dear ❤️.

Hi

 

I didn't write since long time.

My situation is worse and worse.

Always waves and each waves is stronger... Stronger with aches and emotional spiral : in particular internal akhatisy it is horrible. Suicide ideas  I wanted to go in clinic which I had phoned it was ok. But with coronavirus it isn't possible anymore. Natural cares for my aches are no more possible with coronavirus... All  cancelled : logical.

( J'ai vu un médecin acupuncteur la semaine dernière, nous devions nous revoir, mes séances de kiné sont annulées au moins jusque mi avril voire plus ..

J'avais RV aussi en centre anti-douleur aujourd'hui pour prise en charge non médicamenteuse.

Tout, tout annulé par les médecins et praticiens qui suivent les consignes ce qui est normal)

 

I will write maybe longer tomorrow. And complete my signature : 1,60 mg escitalopram since January and 4,50 prazepam 3 times a day 

 

I feel worse and worse since September. 6 months and no improvement on the contrary...

 

Good evening all. Take care of yourself.

 

Vega

Hello, 

 

Since my last post, I knew 4 weeks improvement, even if it was difficult. 

But since 10 days I feel me worse and worse. 

 

J'ai du mal à me concentrer pour écrire en anglais et même en français. ^^

 

Les douleurs sont revenues pires avec des noeuds musculaires de part et d'autre de la colonne : bas du dos, trapèzes, nuque, cou et céphalées de tension atroces. 

Parallèlement à cela, les crises d'akhatisie internes qui s'etaient bien estompées sont revenues. 

J'ai aussi un très gros énervement, une rage comme j'avais eue au démarrage des Anti-depresseurs au bout de deux semaines. Elle avait diminuée quand j'etais passée d'effexor 75 à 37,5 mg. Elle avait augmenté quand je suis remontée à effexor 75 mg. Elle s'etait estompée lors du pont vers sertraline puis avait Re augmenté peu de temps après être à 50 mg de sertraline. 

J'ai ensuite diminue la sertraline jusqu'à 25 mg progressivement et cet énervement, cette rage ont bien réduit puis disparu. 

J'ai alors gardé 25 mg de sertraline 3 mois et réduit lysanxia comme vous pouvez le voir dans ma signature. 

Mais en juillet cet énervement est revenu. 

J'ai fait cette erreur de changer sertraline pour escitalopram, cet énervement constant à empiré encore. 

J'ai suivi les mauvais conseils de diminuer trop vite. Mais malgré des symptômes terribles cet énervement était parti et plus revenu. 

Sont apparues des crises d'akhatisie interne en octobre, probablement dues au cone bien trop rapide. 

Cependant ce sentiment d'enervement fort et constant avait disparu et il revient très fort... 

Je dois me contenir. J'ai envie de tout casser.Je ne peux toujours pas pleurer ou si peu. 

 

J'ai augmenté escitalopram à 1,60 mg la première semaine de janvier. Je prends toujours cette dose de façon constante tous les matins à 8h30.

 

J'ai fait de micro réductions de prazepam. Actuellement 4,385 mg x 3, soit une réduction de 1,095 mg en 7 mois. 

 

Je ne prends plus aucun complément alimentaire. Je pense avoir totalement stoppé l- tryptophane fin janvier. J'y suis allée tout doucement. 

 

Je ne sais pas si c'est encore une vague mais pire. J'ai l'impression que chaque vague est pire que la précédente et je désespère. J'ai de très mauvaises pensées que je n'avais plus. 

Je ne sais pas non plus si c'est en effet direct d'escitalopram. 

Bref, je suis en enfer... Cette dégradation est survenue très brutalement et Empire. 

 

@Erell

Si tu as un moment et si tu as la santé pour aider, saurais- tu traduire?  S'il te plaît? 

Mais pense à toi d'abord surtout. 

 

Je vais vraiment essayer de mettre ma signature à jour et décrire mon schéma de symptômes. 

Je suis tellement mal que cela m'est très difficile et également avec les problèmes aux yeux pour écrire. 

 

Bisous

 

Vega

I'm absolutely sûre I have adverse réaction with anti depressants. But WD too...

Hello, 

 

Since my last post, I knew 4 weeks improvement, even if it was difficult. 

But since 10 days I feel me worse and worse. 

 

J'ai du mal à me concentrer pour écrire en anglais et même en français. ^^

 

Les douleurs sont revenues pires avec des noeuds musculaires de part et d'autre de la colonne : bas du dos, trapèzes, nuque, cou et céphalées de tension atroces. 

Parallèlement à cela, les crises d'akhatisie internes qui s'etaient bien estompées sont revenues. 

J'ai aussi un très gros énervement, une rage comme j'avais eue au démarrage des Anti-depresseurs au bout de deux semaines. Elle avait diminuée quand j'etais passée d'effexor 75 à 37,5 mg. Elle avait augmenté quand je suis remontée à effexor 75 mg. Elle s'etait estompée lors du pont vers sertraline puis avait Re augmenté peu de temps après être à 50 mg de sertraline. 

J'ai ensuite diminue la sertraline jusqu'à 25 mg progressivement et cet énervement, cette rage ont bien réduit puis disparu. 

J'ai alors gardé 25 mg de sertraline 3 mois et réduit lysanxia comme vous pouvez le voir dans ma signature. 

Mais en juillet cet énervement est revenu. 

J'ai fait cette erreur de changer sertraline pour escitalopram, cet énervement constant à empiré encore. 

J'ai suivi les mauvais conseils de diminuer trop vite. Mais malgré des symptômes terribles cet énervement était parti et plus revenu. 

Sont apparues des crises d'akhatisie interne en octobre, probablement dues au cone bien trop rapide. 

Cependant ce sentiment d'enervement fort et constant avait disparu et il revient très fort... 

Je dois me contenir. J'ai envie de tout casser.Je ne peux toujours pas pleurer ou si peu. 

 

J'ai augmenté escitalopram à 1,60 mg la première semaine de janvier. Je prends toujours cette dose de façon constante tous les matins à 8h30.

 

J'ai fait de micro réductions de prazepam. Actuellement 4,385 mg x 3, soit une réduction de 1,095 mg en 7 mois. 

 

Je ne prends plus aucun complément alimentaire. Je pense avoir totalement stoppé l- tryptophane fin janvier. J'y suis allée tout doucement. 

 

Je ne sais pas si c'est encore une vague mais pire. J'ai l'impression que chaque vague est pire que la précédente et je désespère. J'ai de très mauvaises pensées que je n'avais plus. 

Je ne sais pas non plus si c'est en effet direct d'escitalopram. 

Bref, je suis en enfer... Cette dégradation est survenue très brutalement et Empire. 

 

@Erell

Si tu as un moment et si tu as la santé pour aider, saurais- tu traduire?  S'il te plaît? 

Mais pense à toi d'abord surtout. 

 

Je vais vraiment essayer de mettre ma signature à jour et décrire mon schéma de symptômes. 

Je suis tellement mal que cela m'est très difficile et également avec les problèmes aux yeux pour écrire. 

 

Bisous

Translation :

 

After my last post (March 19th), I've been through 4 weeks of improvments. But since 10 days I feel worse.

 

It is difficult for me to write, in English and in French, can't focus.

 

Physical pains are worse than ever, mostly spine pain : lower back, neck, trapezius muscles, and awful tension headaches.

 

In the mean time, internal akathasia crises are back, whereas they had faded.

 

I also feel rage, jitteriness : exactly like I felt when I started AD (with Effexor).

At that time, the rage fadded when I dropped Effexor from 75mg to 37,5mg. It increased when I went back to 75m Effexor. It fadded when I switched to Sertraline, then disappeared when I went from 50mg Sertraline to 25mg

 

But last July, this rage came back.

I switched from Sertraline to Escitalopram, and it was a big mistake. With this switch, rage increased again.

And then I followed bad advices and tappered Escitalopram too fast.  

 

I'm scared because the rage came back ten days ago, and it is very strong.

I have to temper myself. I want to break everything around me. I still can't cry.

 

I updosed Escitalopram to 1,60mg first week of January 2020. I'm still holding at that dose, I take it every morning at 8.30 am.

 

I've made little drops of Prazepam. Currently I take 4,385mg x3 (that equals to a 1.095mg cut in 7 months).

 

 

I don't take any supplement anymore. I think I've stopped taking l-tryptophane in the end of last Janurary. I tappered very slowly.

 

I don't know if I'm in a wave, or if something worse is going on. Every wave feels worse than previous ones, and I feel desperate. I have very bad thougts.  

I don't know either if it's an advere effect from Escitalopram.

 

In short, I'm in hell...this deterioration is very brutal and is getting worse.

 

 

I'm gonna try to update my signature, and to describe my symptoms pattern.

But I feel so awful right now, it is very difficult to type.

Thanks you so much dear Erell.

 

I reflected a lot with benzo tolerance today, and read about it

Tolérance exist. I have been addict very fast with benzo.

But how can a réduction help for it? 

Even if my taper of prazepam since September is very small. I think now as Shep told me that taper very slowly prazepam was maybe not à good idea. 

Benzo can help for antidepressant  WD and adverse réaction liké rage I think. 

 

I did an error. I feeled worse since 2 weeks not 10 days .

When I had improvement I Hopedale to taper escitalopram again maybe un june if my situation were stable or betterave, liké " Normal" WD, but now I think différent and I'm confuse. 

 

Return of almost permanent rage and feeling me maniac again worries me. Effect of antidepressant + micro taper of benzo.? 

If I hold prazepam and escitalopram stable is it good, Or should I try to reduce a litlle escitalopram ? 

I think I have adverse effects and WD together : the worsted situation. 

 

Thank you for advices if somebody can tell me. 

 

Take care of yourself. 

 

Vega.
