salut vega 

par quoi tu as remplacé le café car moi j y arrive pas 

comme je fume aussi la clope va avec le café 

et si j en bois pas j ai mal à la tete 

je t 'embrasse fort 

 

J'ai progressivement réduit les doses puis rallongé avec de l'eau.

Parfois il m'arrive de boire quelques petits grains de deca mais très peu dans de l'eau chaude. Ca donne une légère impression de boire du café, mais j'avoue pas facile.

 

Bisous

My physical symptoms in back, arms, legs etc...are reducing when I lie down and they increase when I get up it seems.

I think thar sensation as I will faint might be indices by my hard back and neck symptôms.

 

However, yersterday evening at 9.30-10.pm : I felt good ! All symptôms were bearable. 

Unfortunatly, supermarket was closes, I'm sûre I will have be able to go there. 

 

This morning : aches and umpleasant sensations again.^^ I lied down it reduced. When I got up again it increase...

 

Thank you

However I have made 2 little changes thèse 2 last weeks :

-progressive réduction of coffea : 3/4 a little cup to 0.

-I smoked +/- 20 cigarettes and  now +/- 15 because I spent long time in bed.

 

Please be as consistent as you can. Caffeine and nicotine are also drugs.

 

It's good you are off of coffee now. Try to smoke the same number of cigarettes every day and if possible, at the same time of the day.

Hello Shep,

 

I know, I have stop Coffea very slowly for this.

For cigarettes, I can say that I smoke the most : early on morning, early afternoon, and of afternoon and evening...

Hard to régule as you say me but I will try. Before benzo I smoked 5-7 a day... 

 

I take care with my alimentation : very little sugar, no more spices, no detox, very little wheat and lactose. My alimentation is inspired of foodmaps diet since several years because I have intolérances and irritable bowel syndrom. I try to eat varies so I do not have a deficiency (carences) and do my possible to have a régularité transit.. I make myself my bread not with wheat but spelled. 

 

Thank you

Hi Vega

 

That is good news.

Once the improvements start, no matter how small, it means you are responding well to the changes  you have made.

Since you take take any drugs or supplements until 8 am, you may want to set your alarm for 8 am instead of 6 am. This would give you more sleep, which may help a lot with your symptoms.

Are you able to sleep in another room? Sleep is so important during withdrawal. A lot of pain and burning symptoms come from lack of sleep, so please do all you can to be in a quiet space for as many hours as possible each night.

Today physical symptôms : aches, burnings etc..., fog in brain  were very hard as yersterday but I felt me strong today to live with my very hard pains.

I have hope that my suffering will be les hard in several days or weeks. Maybe it will not, but I préfère today to hope, because to be affraid will change nothing for the futur.

I dont know if I will think like this Every days, but today I did. Pains are terrible, very hard but today I am stronger than pains.

Problem : I  need to cry  , really cry.  but I don't or juste 2-3 tears sometimes. Not to cry is my personality since I'am children. I know it's bad.

When did the itching start?

 

Of course you can't cry, you're drugged with prazepam all day long.

 

If I were you, I'd stop the probiotics, to start with. Please continue to post daily notes.

I had itching 10 october on scalp and no more.

Since 29 october I have itching again every day on evening, essentially in scalp but a little on face and legs too.

 

I know that drug can avoid to cry but...I am a personne who dont cry since ... more of 30 years maybe. I'm 41. It is current for me not to cry during more one year, I am very sensible but not cry. I know why. I can say that since one year I think have really crying 3 times, which is a lot for me. ^^

 

For probiotics, I though to finish my cure, juste 5 days again and stop. I make 2-3 cures of one month of probiotics/ year. It help me. ( irritable bowel since several years)

 

Thank you.

What is causing the scalp itching? Did you try a new shampoo recently? A change in drug manufacturer?

 

I would like to see you stop taking all the things that are not absolutely necessary: lithium citrate 1 mg, probiotics,  homeopathy, L-tryptophan 220 mg. Any of these substances may cause reactions that confound your symptom pattern.

 

The lithium and tryptophan need to be tapered.

Hello Altostrata,

 

No new shampoo, no change in drug manufacturer, no new laundry etc.... I have scalp itching sometimes since several years but it is better to be carefull. 

 

I'm agree to stop compléments.

I think is better. Just finish 4 days probiotics.

Stop progressively lithium and L-tryptophan : Yes, I wanted to stop it.

 

Thank you.

Hello,

 

This morning I feel me very nervous and agitated. Very hard to stand and I'm affraid.

It's worring me a lot. I try to tell me that it will not last and to calme me. But is difficult in relation in my history with antidepressant. I was very much stable with sertraline, but after 3,5 month of escitalopram, I think I have no other choice to stay with it. Take sertraline again should be worse for my CNS... And we dont know what dose will be correct ?

 

I see my psychiatrist this afternoon. Wish me good luck. No lamictal ! 

I will say her that I'm little less dépressive, to have escitalopram again, but that all is is not ok. I wouldn't like that she tell me to reduce Prazepam. But I managed to accumulate +/- 300 days of prazepam in advance.

She think that I have increased escitalopram to 3 mg. I hâte to lie, but dont have other choice...

 

Have a good day

Do you mean you will taper off lithium citrate gradually and then taper L-tryptophan? That's okay.

 

Do you feel better or worse than you did two weeks ago?

Hello Altostrata,

 

Thank you very much to reply me. :)

 

1. Yes taper off lithium citrate gradually and then taper L-tryptophan.

 

2. I try to résume, as you know well and explain : symptôms are not always linear.

I have a little bit less dépression and anxiety, however they are a little harder two last days. Intrusive images and hypnagogic hallucinations reduced.

Sensibility to light and noise, physical difficulties to speach, Brain zaps, bruxism, diarrhea, legs aches, headache reduced a little. I dont have had sensations of needles stinging any more.

 

But : other symptôms are always very hard : espacially in back, neck, spine, arms, umpleasant sensations in head and nose, nausea, weakness. Sensation i will to faint less often but still every day.

 

I have other symptôms which appears or increase : derealization/ dépersonalisation, confusion, problèms of memory, fog in brain.

 

To résume : I feel me no better, maybe worse. My physical symptoms are more permanent in the day except the evening in general

 

This morning 7.30 am : I have tremors : new symptôme. I have little itching in scalp (I washed my haies yesterday)

I wonder if I am not in wave since two days. I feel me very bad since +/- 1,5 month, worse than I ever been.

 

Thank you Altostrata 

 

Vega.
