Recommended Posts

i took citanew 10mg first time in 2010 for 6 mothes mainly for panic attacks and ct . once again i took it again in 2015 for 5 to 6 monthes and stopped it ct without any withdrawals effects.

 

In april 2020 i took antibiotics which increased my heart rate and i got panic and doc gave me xanax .25 mg for 30 days generally for relaxation and keep my panic under control but it gave me adverse reaction . i did not realize i m having panic attacks breathing issues anxiety just because of xanax. its half life is 8 hours and i was just taking 1 tablet .25 mg at night time . i switched my doc and new doc started me on citanew and said ct xanax when citanew kicks in. anyway on 13th May 2020 i ct xanax and citanew really controlled my symtoms. i did a big mistake and again ct citanew in august 2020 . In September i started to have severe panic attacks , sugar crashes, full body weakness, fear to go out side, muscles spasm.  i dont know now these are withdrawal of xanax or citanew.  i need advise from you all . what i should do ? should i reinstate citanew with minimum dosage or face the withdrawal. its almost 7 monthes from the time i have ct citanew and i m living in hell. please help.

Welcome, @saimshah

 

What is the pharmacy name for citanew?

 

We often see that B vitamins or other supplements can cause worse withdrawal symptoms because your system is sensitized by the adverse drug events. Stay as calm as you can and let your nervous system settle down.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.

its Escitalopram. just before taking vitamin b12 and vit d i was able to walk 4 to 5 km a day with minimum withdrawal and now even a slight walk put burning in my whole body and i feel extreme hotness and sweating. I get up in the morning  right at 3 or 3.30 AM with full of sweating and anxiety. will this be alright please give me some assurance. also anyway i can calm my nerves ? should i reinstate Escitalopram with minimum dose to taper things properly or i should bear the wd . I m still confused is it xanax withdrawal or Escitalopram i used xanax .25 mg between april and may 2020 for 4 to 5 weeks. As soon as  Escitalopram kicks in i stopped facing wd from xanax at that time. I just took 10 mg Escitalopram for 5 monthes between April to august 2020. please help.. my 6 monthes old baby girl on ventilator due to lunges infection and i even cant go to hospital to see her. i m very miserable right now.

My dear @saimshah, as altostrsta(the administrator) told u, supplements like b vitamins or d may cause the symptomts to be worse so a first step is to stop having them. I dont think altostrata would advise u to reinstate escitalobram because it is too long from your last dosage so reinstating wont be helpful as I always read here. As u stop b and d vitamins, you would come to good point again. After that, try to schedule your main bothering symptomts and go to forum (symptomts and self care) to see how people coped with these symptomts with non drug techniques.

 

i wasn't on a certain drug all the period. i took many drugs many times and for no very long period but to simplify.

--sertraline 100mg -------started november 2015 and total taper (withoud reduction slowly) in november 2016( 4 months withoud drugs then).

--sertraline 100mg + quetiabine 25mg ( started in mars 2016 and for 7 months) then fluvoxamine maleate 100mg again for another 7months and after that a something like to use every drug for 14 days and for about 1.5 years.

--my last drug was trintellix 10 mg ( used it in 12/2018and total taper in 4/2019).

symptomts i have now ( bad concentration and problems in short and long memory+ bad depersonalization).

salam mustafa really nice to have a reply from you. i took vitamins last time 5 days ago total for 3 days and as soon as i started to face insomnia i stopped both of the vitamins but still after 5 days i m facing cortisol surges all the time, fast heart beat, no sleep more then 2 to 3 hours and get up every night at 3 to 3.30 AM with full of body sweats like i just took a bath. if i try to walk i face extreme exhaustion and anxiety. just 1 week before taking vitamins i was walking 4 to 5 km a day and withdrawal symtoms were very bearable. will i be able to walk again. is it withdrawal or i am facing some life threatening dease. i never faced such issues in 7 monthes from the time I ct AD. please tell how i can improve my symtom if u know something. i heared some people are talking about magnesium for CNS relief.  are they talking about magnesium vutamin or something else. will it give me any relief in my anxiety if i take it.

It takes time for CNS to settle down even after u stopped the vitamins, so dont worry, your system will stabilize again but give it the time.

There is no fast solution to solve the problem, it is only to care yourself to be safe as much as u can until u recover from these withdrawals. This can be by eating healthy foods, avoid soda, caffine, alcohol and sugar as much as u can and smoking too.

Time still the only choice and the only way to recover from symptomts.

One more thing to add iam sorry.

I think magnesium will bring the same effect like b vitamins so avoid it as well. @saimshah

I really cant give a definitive reply for this. For me, fruits were ok and became bad and I still cant determine why this happened. But if u are eating them and no problem, then dont cut them from your diet. You may also try to depend on vegetables instead of fruits, it is your choice.

Yes iam still living alone. Sometimes I go to visit my parents.

Ah, I need to add: if u are muslim, never miss your pray, it is a powerful key for u to end the journey of withdrawals.

My dear saimshah, I think binge eating is one of the common symptomts of antidepressants( taking , tapering them and stopping them).

If I were u, I would select to eat some foods that take long time to be digested, in order to stay full alot of time. And also select the foods that gives the feeling of fullness.

Try this and see.

After some months, you may be able to start vitamins again, starting with very low doses.

My dear @saimshah, sometimes u may hit waves and u may be suffering a wave now.

My advice is not to panick. Some herbs may worsen the symptomts by the way so be careful too at this point. Dont forget caffeine, soda and sugar are known to increase the symptomts and finally yes, your system may suffer ups and downs after u stop vitamins until your brain calms down. And dont forget again, u are living windows&waves patterns .

Are you taking any drugs or supplements?  If yes, what are they?

 

Have you taken any Xanax this year 2021?  If yes, when and how much?

 

Do you drink alcohol or consume caffeine (eg energy drinks, cola drinks, coffee)?

@mustafa @Altostrata please help me i beg you. i have no one else to help me except you guys. i need your support. can i start AD again and then slow taper it when i am stabilize. please atleast advice me something. it is very very hard to stay like this. i have intrusive thoughts, fear of dieing, fear of going out side, too much weakness in whole body, severe anxiety, depression, no sleep from 4 days. heart palpitations (skipping heart beat), heavy head.

My dear saimshah,

Can u reduce sugar in your diet?

I suggest u dont eat too much fruit as it contains alot of sugar. You may also be sensitive to some types of fruits, strawberry for exapmle. For me, when I eat fruit or any sugar source, I feel like u and I dont feel any comfort unless I stop this sugar source. So I advise u to stop and eat vegetables instead. This wont be harmful to u because vegetables can give u the same benefit.

Gradually after u stop the sugar, I think u are going to be better.

Have a good day, dear.

i wasn't on a certain drug all the period. i took many drugs many times and for no very long period but to simplify.

--fluvoxamine maleate100 mg + amisulpride 200mg------started july 2012 and total taper in february 2015 ( 9 months without drugs then)

--sertraline 100mg -------started november 2015 and total taper (withoud reduction slowly) in november 2016( 4 months withoud drugs then).

--sertraline 100mg + quetiabine 25mg ( started in mars 2016 and for 7 months) then fluvoxamine maleate 100mg again for another 7months and after that a something like to use every drug for 14 days and for about 1.5 years.

--my last drug was trintellix 10 mg ( used it in 12/2018and total taper in 4/2019).

symptomts i have now ( bad concentration and problems in short and long memory+ bad depersonalization).

One thing to add is that u must stay away of all spicy foods. Like sugar, spicy food can raise your suffer to a hard level.
