Salut Nyfa,

Dans votre cas, vous avez pris des médicaments pendant une courte période. Vous avez donc une meilleure chance de récupérer.

Attendre !

 

C'est tellement dur, ces médicaments ont semés le chaos je n'en reviens pas....


June 25 - July 8, 2020 - 2 weeks on Brintellix, suffered an adverse reaction.

Hello Nyfa,

 

I've read a lot on SA and from what I've seen, people who suffer from an adverse reaction after a short time on drugs tend to recover.

It may takes time, but people do recover and go on with their lives.

 

Hang in there, one day this will only be a memory ❤

Hi @Nyfa25

The intrusive thoughts are just thoughts. They have got nothing to do with the person you are. Try to ignore them. You dont have to be scared of them. 

You have been on the drug for such a short time, you will be fine. Give your body time to heal, and it will. 

I would try not to focus on your symptoms and distracting yourself as much as possible

Do you have a tv show you love to watch, take gentle walk or just having a conversation with someone close to you

 

All the best to you, you can do it💪

Salut Nyfa,

je sais ce que c'est d'avoir ce genre de pensées, et l'angoisse horrible que ça procure. Plus tu vas leur donner de l'importance, plus elles vont t'obséder. A un moment donné tu vas t'y habituer et alors elles vont s'atténuer et disparaître.

 

Hi Nyfa,

I know what it is to have this kind of thoughts, and the awful anxiety it provides. The more you will give importance to them, the more they will obsess you. There will be a time when you will be accustomed and then they will lessen and disappeared


- 2002 -> 2012 Paxil, 20 mg for anxiety

- January 2012 : 1 month withdrawal -> depression, burning sensations in my legs

- February 2012 : reinstate 20 mg -> back to normal

- January 2014 -> August 2015 : « alternate days » tapering from 20mg to 2,5 mg -> anxiety, back pain and trouble focusing

- 4 september 2015 -> panic attack, psychiatric hospital for 1 week, stop Paxil, get Clomipramine, Abilify, Domperidone for 2 weeks, then stop everything

- 20 september 2015 try to reinstate Paxil 20 mg -> permanent tinnitus with only one tablet

- Free from paxil since september 2015 ->suffering from permanent side effects : tinnitus, hyperacusis, neuropathic pain, prostatitis, depression, suicidal ideations, akathisia.

J'essaie de ne pas me focaliser dessus mais c'est dur.. J'ai aussi beaucoup de pensées suicidaires en ce moment, dur d'essayer de se raisonner et de se dire que ce n'est pas moi! 

 

Il m'arrive aussi d'avoir le matin quand je me réveille en étant encore légèrement endormie, non pas un pic de cortisol mais une sudation excessive ainsi qu'un "emballement de pensées", je ne sais pas si c'est un symptôme aussi ? je n'avais jamais eu ça avant...

Salut Nyfa,

je suis désolé que tu te sentes si mal. J'ai moi aussi parfois des pensées de désespoir, je suis dans une période horrible en ce moment. Il faut essayer de vivre un jour après l'autre, mais tu as raison c'est parfois très dur de se raisonner.

Au sujet de ce que tu ressens le matin, oui tu peux considérer tout ce que tu ressens de nouveau et de bizarre comme un symptôme, surtout si tu ne l'as jamais ressenti avant.

Courage.

 

Hi Nyfa

I'm sorry that you feel so bad. I have also sometimes thoughts of despair, I'm in a horrible period actually. We have to try to live one day after another, but you're right it's sometimes so difficult to reason ourselves.

Concerning what you feel in the morning, you can consider everything new and weird as a symptom, especially if you never felt that way before.

Courage.

I feel the same way Nyfa :(

Just to hang on during these hard moments I think about my parents and my sister and the pain this would be for them.

Do you have any family, or friends that care about you ?

Yes I have my parents and my boyfriend but they don't understand my behaviour and they don't trust that Brintellix did this

Yes, in addition to our suffering, we have to deal with the misunderstanding.

I'm lucky to have my family that believe this drugs can cause all that mess, however I lost some of my best friends because of that.

This kind of misfortune reveal sometimes the true face of people around us.

Sad.

It will get better Nyfa, really.

I've read a lot on websites during those last years, and even if it can take time, people who took psychdrugs for a short time after an adverse reaction always report they get better.

I'm sorry this is so brutal, but remember this only temporary : you have a many years of a drug free life ahead you ❤

@Erell merci pour ton message c'est vrai que pour moi qui suis une personne sans antécédents d'angoisse ou de problèmes psychiatriques c'est très dur à accepter, comment passer d'un état normal a cet état pathétique, tout ça a cause de médicaments c'est extrêmement difficile pour moi!
