If they make you worse, stop taking the drugs.

 

As you were seeing slow improvement without drugs, you may recall I suggested you might stay calm and allow your body to heal itself. We discussed the possibility taking additional drugs might make you worse. Then you took additional drugs.

 

We provide peer support for going off drugs and withdrawal syndrome. If you do things to make yourself worse, we can't help you.

 

You have to let your nervous system settle down.

@Altostrata all my symptoms subsided but I’m worried about just one thing , seem my brain is bouncing inside my skull . Please as anyone experienced that , is it going to stop ? Cause now I’m very stable but seem like a big hit at the back of my head though not painful but hope it will not break my brain 

Please something scary just happened today , My right eardrum were actually beating drums, about 8 times also . I

stopped the additional medications and

not taking anything as of now . I have a loud tinnitus, snow eye on my right, head/neck stiffness, my postures are whack and not just certain of my options no more . I don’t want to live my life in misery. My head turn suddenly while I was napping this morning got scared and now I’m not sure if I will ever be me again. I’m lost . I want peace ☮️ Please @AltostrataI’m having a lot of jerky movements , they aren’t pleasant at all please

Thank you alto , wasn’t sure I got a response cause I’m still learning how to function on the site . My progress is rapid as I can tell to the stories have read on here . My libido is back , my muscles seems going on and off which is strange and I lost them on my very first those on risperidone. It was all of a sudden my body dropped and my body structure was whacked though I didn’t know it was due to risperidone and the anxieties are minimal , tremors reduced . Got used to the pains , the Brian zaps has shakes reduces but worried about the head shake. Flu symptoms almost gone . Subsided after 3 days of blue vervain and neck tighten reduced but the my head tics or shakes I don’t know . Seem like a dystonia reaction and don’t really know how long for me . I was on the drug just for 3 months on and off 2 mg tops . I sense my body is trying to reorganize but not really sure anymore and I need ask if Canabis could help cause I don’t want to take any medication and I’m done taking drugs whatsoever till my last breath on earth . This is not fair. All I wanna do is make some good music and make my mama happy cause she had suffered a lot . I will clock 30 by dec . Can’t believe is gonna be in agony and disbelief. 2019 wasn’t a good year for me at all but I’m wiser and stronger maybe but I’m just fed up with life and those around me can not even see my sufferings . They sometimes make jest of me cause they do not know what I’m really going through. Even fam thinks I’m being making lots of things up . I’m messed up but sometimes ; 

Pain sometimes could be a lesson . Don’t be lessened. 
Every sorrow as an ending keep withstanding 
Understand this and be hopeful cause;
Every Phoenix rise from its ashes.
A hundred years of pain would end one day 
Times as no limit ; The roads full of patches 
Weakness will thread on you if you can withstand it 
ONLY THE STRONGEST CAN RELATE
We All Can Deny It 
Life is all Mazes . Find the route and Escape the lapses 💪🏾🤴🏾🏽🐐🧠

keep encouraging my brain . Hope my brain won’t give up on me . It’s all I rely on 

I hope this dark days won’t cloud my life forever thanks 🙏🏽 Just too late before I found here. TOO LATE TO GO BACK NOW 

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Damn dirty and all foul words to risperidal .😡😡😡😡😡😡

Henryk,

After all this fatal experience, I feel to suggest you that, introducing very low dose of olanzapine would help to eradicate present symptoms.

Then systematic taper of olanzapine would lead you to the state of before meds.

Free from all fatal symptoms.

This experiment worked on me.

If some others succeed in same way,this method would be successful to all the survivors.

I request you to concern with moderators before considering about my suggestion.

If after life ,rebirth is possible , I would like to take birth as self operating magic wand.

Lots of support from India Henryk.

Even though we have doubts on Gods very existance at this fatal moment,All we have to do is to pray for each other.

God Bless you.

SA does not recommend introducing a new drug, such as the antipsychotic Olanzapine, to deal with symptoms from a present drug.

I had pain earlier, though not lethargic but just overwhelmed by every straight symptoms I have . I’m so confused and lost and this all beyond me. I have every symptoms. Name it I have it . My neck freezes a lot and I have wierd sensations whenever I touch a part of my body and chest feels open. 

 

 

Just dont want those movements, spinal cord injuries hardly heals you know it ma . 

I appreciate your efforts and support but I’d appreciate you more just to be straightforward with me and not let me have false hope . My nature can’t just digest that .

 

 

@brassmonkey seem you know the truth about my predicaments , I see why you gave no response to my reply cause I’m so complicated. I need to know the truth about my condition, I’m so messed up and fed up and scared . Not scared of death , just don’t wanna live miserably. I’m the first son , I should be the back bone . Just sad 😔 now cause I can’t even brace myself , I’m so broken .

I haven't given up on you Henry, I've just had to direct my attention in other directions.  SA is a very large site and we only have a few moderators to go around.

 

The symptoms you are describing are pretty typical for a CT.  Even if a person has only been taking a drug for a few months they can experience very intense WD symptoms especially if there have been several large dosage changes thrown in on top of it. Alto has noted that you have shown some improvement recently, this is a very good sign.  Things will take a very long time to stabilize from the CT, after which healing will be a long and bumpy road, but it will happen.  For the time being working on acceptance of your situation and practicing self care and calming techniques will be the best thing you can do.  They are the base the the best healing in built on. 

 

Having the backbone to do what is needed to care for your self and get through this will show enough strength to make any first son proud.  By the time you have healed, although not many will understand what you have been through, you will know you can withstand anything life has to throw at you.  And that is an amazing thing to know.

Spending even 2 days on a full cocktail of an antidepressants and two benzos likely affected your nervous system. 

 

It can take a few days or even weeks for this to settle down.

Benzos such as Ativan and Nitrazepam can cause breathing problems, so it may not be the pre-existing tardive dyskinesia. This could be something called "air hunger," which is extremely common with benzos. 

 

Please give your nervous system time to stabilize after being exposed to these other drugs. The more self-care you can do in the form of a clean diet, plenty of fresh water, taking a walk every day, etc. the better you'll feel in the long run.

Thank you ma but I had the same issue while on risperidone. I will wake up suddenly in the middle of the night and eating seem hard then and now my throat opens and closes at will and I have some movements inside. Whenever it happens I wheezes and I have pressure on one side of my face , my cervicle spine make different sounds like is going to break any moment from now . My jaw gripes so hard all day , hand always claw like and had tremor. My head freezes like it’s going to fall and stuffs like that . I’m lost really , only God seem to understand why I deserve this hell while alive. Wish death could take my pains away since I can’t just kill myself . How long do I have suffer for before I get little relief. I’m too young for this but thanks for responding to my rants . Life as been cruel to me where I do not deserve no hope , no hope for joy , no hope for love , no hope of a better tomorrow. Under this circumstances, how can I cope ?

Henryk, you need to remind yourself to stay calm and not dwell on your symptoms. When you look at something for too long, it can seem larger than it is.

 

If you have always had trouble breathing while sleeping, you may have a condition called sleep apnea. This is not related to withdrawal symptoms. Please look up ways to cope with sleep apnea.

 

Otherwise, I don't think I can recommend anything other than I've already posted in this topic. Please re-read my posts.

Sleep Apnea do not happen when you’re awake. This happens while awake too but I will have to ride on but how about my spine issues, does this medication changes everything in your systems?? Breathing, spine , shape, face , head etc . How do I get my spine stability back ? Will it just happen? So confused right I have to be sincere with myself ma . Thank you ma
