Londoner,   No, I didn’t go to hospital.  I was afraid they would make it worse, and that that would kill me.  I’m more convinced  that I was right every time I read about someone going to t

@Londoner, Just wanted to stop by to say I am following your posts and I am rooting for you. Your suffering sounds so terrible and I know how it feels like to feel like you would do anything to make t

Thanks Alto,   I will certainly keep you updated. I have now taken 3 daily doses of 1mg. Initial effects seem to have been a significant improvement in mood, sleep, eating and vomiting, with

Thanks so much Rosetta 🙏 I'm really just trying to hang in there. Doing my best to keep a journal and diary of how I'm feeling and trying to keep on top of negative thoughts. It's so easy for me to spiral. Gratitude lists have also been helping me somewhat. I just need to get through the days.

Sending much love your way. I hope you are doing ok?

In summary, cycled through a number of SSRI/SNRI medications in 2010, stayed on 100mg Sertraline for 5 years followed by 5 years on 200mg.

Valium started in 2011-2018 up to doses of 16mg. Tapered off slowly over years. Difficult to distinguish withdrawal symptoms from the symptoms I was already experiencing due to Sertraline tolerance withdrawal

Briefly tried Lamotrigine and Bupropion in 2020.

Started withdrawing from Sertraline in August 2020. Came down by 50mg every 2-3 weeks. Med free since mid Sept 2020.

3 April 2021 - reinstated 1mg Sertraline, April 13th increased dose to 2mg Sertraline, April 16th increased to 5mg for one day. Stopped reinstatement on 19th April.

Main symptoms as of Nov 2020: Chronic headaches accompanied by feelings of deep despair, stomach ache/nausea, brain fog and memory issues, disturbed circadian rhythm.

End March 2021 symptoms: Extreme suicidal akathisia and restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, morning surges of panic, panic throughout the day. Unbearable.

April - suicidal akathisia, cortisol surges through the night, insomnia, shaking, GI issues

Supplements: Melatonin 2.5mg a night

I’m fine, thank you.  The gratitude lists are very useful.  That’s a good idea.
