My Final dose 37.5mg of effexor was February 20, 2020 and the withdrawl have been dibilitating waves and windows ever since. Lost job, home and hoping to keep my family around.

 

Which of the above symptoms is new since February 20, 2020.

 

Did you ever try re-introducing a few beads of Effexor?

Did you have withdrawal symptoms after going off Effexor? Did you feel okay on Zoloft until July 11?

 

Were you taking oxytocin or Oxycontin? What does [v] mean? If it's a drug, please list the dosage.

 

Why do you call your condition serotonin syndrome when you were taking only 50mg Zoloft until July 11?

I have had withdrawl symptoms since starting the taper on September, 7 2019

Originally I was ok on the zoloft but it didn't do anything for withdrawls. July, 11 to July,15 I went from 50mg Zoloft to 100mg.

Then developed parkinsonism or serotonin syndrome? But idk im just assuming to be honest not sure what eles to call it if it were PLS i don't think it would have developed overnight then have wave and window symptoms. But I will be going for further neurological testing in November.

 

And it was Oxycontin 

 

The [v] are just hash marks

Things seemed to have gone terribly wrong on July 12, 2020. On June 13, 2020 i dropped the zoloft to 50mg. One month later I was hit with an inability to walk or maintain any strength.

 

So you had Effexor withdrawal symptoms since you started the switch to Zoloft in late 2019? Did taking Zoloft ever make you feel better? Why did you decrease Zoloft to 50mg on June 13?

 

Did you take Valium and oxycontin irregularly June through September?

 

Please post the Drug Interactions report from your current combination.

MrM got the interactions posted here, Alto(back on page one, and here is that post):

 


Started with psycho meds circa 1988 I think 27 or 28 total.

AD's, antpsychotics, antiseizure mood stabilizers. Lithium, lamictal ,benzos, and stimulants. Some med. for narcolepsy once(Provigil,) Gabapentin........probably more.  Ask me?......I probably was on it.  Haphazard W/D's by Dr. recommend or uneducated self.

10/2014- off Lexapro--had been on highest dose 10 mg. then 5 mg. for a couple of years, went from 5 mg. to 3 mg. liquid and then CT in hospital(voluntary).  I got out of the hospital on a combination of low dose adderal salts x1/day and trileptal 150mg. x2/day.

5/28/2015-off Adderal salts 2.5mg. (I had been on that since hospital 10/2014)

12/2015---just holding, holding, holding, with trileptal/oxcarb at 75 mg. 1/2 tab at hs.  My last psycho med ever!

 

3/21/2016---I did some unwise updosing of trileptal/oxcarbazepine with some stressful stuff......doubled the above dose x2 during this last wave but began liquifying again and on approximately 68mg. starting today.  11/12//2016 24 mg. oxcarbazepine  12/9/2016 off oxcarbazepine/trileptal!!!! :) optimistic  2016 December 9- completely off all medications!!!!!

Omega3's,EPA +DHA= 1800 mg/day. Magnesium complex, orally, diluted in a liter of H2O(that I can shake up.....it usually dissolves more completely as the water gets down to room temperature) and/or Epsom salt baths prn.   Vit. C, D3, and E.  B12, melatonin tapered to 1mg., and bioidentical hormones sublingually.  Trace mineral drops.  L-lysine.  L-methylfolate=400 mcg plus daily spinach. Totally ready for a good long window to hit soon and getting better strings of full days and partial days along the way.  Definite improvement overall since I first arrived on the SA survivor ship.  Herb and alcohol free since 5/15/2016.  None of my posts are intended as medical advice.  Please discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical provider. manymoretodays

Please put the drug dosage next to each dose.

 

Please pay close attention to the symptoms that appear after you take a drug compared to before you take the drug.

 

Do you feel markedly odd or worse after you take Zoloft?

Yes withdrawal since the start of the switch Zoloft only took some anxiety away during the taper. But did nothing for the physical stuff.  I decreased the Zoloft as I only wanted it to cushin the taper off effexor and not to stay on it.

 

 

I took june oxycontin and valium Jun, 13 to Jun, 30 regularly with a slow taper to  0 on June 30

It would seem one hour after Zoloft I get worse. But im still early in on my notes since moving the Zoloft away from the Valium dose to have enough proof I also  have not made it to a noon dose of zoloft 50mg. yet as was planned.

Yes looking at my notes it would seem that way and my notes show most symptoms are about 2 hours after my Zoloft dosage on most days atleast. I'm going to keep the symptom notes going.

 

Thank you so much for checking up on me Alto 😊 I appreciate it.

Do you have less body pain and fewer body symptoms before you take Zoloft every day?

Judging by the notes it would seem so but scares me to think of lowering it again after that major crash 4 months ago. Valium starts the Lethargy and chills. After Zoloft I seem to have an increase in anxiety depression spasm Dp/Dr and twitching in calf muscles. I am also researching the possibility if during the withdrawl my body is recognizing the titanium hardware from my fusion as an allergen. Perhaps this could be the increase in leg symptoms like twitching. I'll have to wait until November,24 for new neurologist appointment.
