Phoenixmana: cold turkey after 3 weeks on Celexa

If the windows (feeling good) are longer than the waves (feeling bad), that is a very good sign. 

 

I don't know for sure if taking an omega 3 capsule can cause the symptoms you are describing.  If it has not caused these symptoms in the past, I doubt that it is causing them after missing it for 2 days.  Omega 3 doesn't cause the changes to the nervous system the way psych meds do.  

 

The feeling of doom could be caused by your system still going through withdrawal from the Celexa.  It could very well be a wave.  Here is a link about windows and waves: 

 

Windows and Waves

 

Hang in there.  It gets better, slowly, with time.

Hi I don’t know where to ask this question on this site , my boyfriend passed away from leukemia last aug 2020 and I’m wondering if it’s a bad thing to revisit our memories like pictures videos ect during withdraw ? I know I will cry and everytime I cry I feel good , I have often been dreaming about him a lot since I stopped taking celexa , it’s not sad or scary dreams but a nice calming feeling , please help I’m trying to do things that can help me get through this with draw and under everything

Hi @Phoenixmamaso sorry to hear you’re part of this club now, especially while taking care of a little one on your own. I left an update on my progress on my topic, but I’m afraid it’s not very encouraging this time around. The one thing that helps me at this point is that I’ve had so many ups and downs over the last year - and it’s been many more ups lately - that I know things will turn around for the better. I noticed that in one of your posts you said it felt like you had been poisoned, and that’s exactly how I would have described my situation when all of my symptoms first started. I do believe 3 weeks is more than enough time to cause withdrawals, but hopefully you will have a much shorter journey until you recover. Keep us posted on how you’re doing!

For the last three days I’ve been having anxiety like no other , having a feeling of meanness inside me , insomnia It’s now been 6 weeks that I stopped celexa after only using it for 3 weeks . I have a little girl that I keep hiding from because I don’t wanna be snappy or not fun with... is there any single parents out there going through this or has been through it .. I thought I went through the worse of it already but I guess not... I could really use some encouraging words right now , instead that it’s all in my head , HELP I know I haven’t done my signature yet but I tried and it kept saying it’s not right and I have no patients nor the mind to figure it out , I live in a home with my family six other people and I’m suffering in silence and really trying not to fold with all of these exhausted feelings and just don’t want to give up my life

Hi @Phoenixmama I don’t think you’re doing anything wrong. I can tell you that for me the first three months were the worst because I hardly got any reprieve and I constantly questioned if it was really withdrawal I was going through or something else. It was not unusual for me to feel worse in some areas and better in others then to have everything be worse again all in the same day. I analyzed every moment like, “Ok, I think I’m getting better. Nope, there’s that numb feeling again, this is definitely a neurological disorder!” There is a lot of advice about diet, supplements, giving up alcohol or caffeine, and I think all that can help, but the majority of your recovery will depend on time. It did help me to write down all the symptoms, including everything I could remember from the beginning, and focus on the ones that were gone or gradually improving. I think this can be difficult for some people because they have to revisit that time, and you may even be at that point where you feel like nothing has improved, but eventually you’ll start checking boxes off the list. And yes, nausea and weird feelings in my head were normal for me while going through this.

Hello phoenix, I'm sorry that we have not been responding lately.  This forum is run by volunteers who are also recovering from WD.  I would like to encourage you by saying that I truly believe you will get better.  This AD WD is the most difficult thing many of us will ever go through.  However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel (And no, it's not the headlight of an oncoming train 😉). Try reading some of the success stories in the forum. Healing takes a long time, it can take months, or even years.  I've been at it for over 3.5 years, but I feel so much better now than I did when I started out.  

 

Thank you for doing you sig!  It's looks great, and concise and easy to understand. 🙂

Yes, these are typical withdrawal symptoms.  Here is a link with a list of WD symptoms:

But I Only Took it for a Short Time

 

There is a slew of success stories on here.  Go to the home page, and you will see a section at the bottom.  The good news is, since you were on it a short time, it will probably take you less time to heal that it did those of us who were on it for years or decades.

Hi.  Welcome to SA, Phoenix.  I’m very sorry for the loss of your boyfriend.
 

My daughter was 5 when I stopped taking Zoloft.  It’s tough to be a mother through this.  I’m glad you live with other family members.  What I found to help was that if I felt well enough in a window, I tried to spend time with my daughter.  We did crafts or played with her toys, colored, or watched very calm kids shows.  (Puffin Rock and Tumbleleaf.)  Much of the time, I had to take care of her regardless of how I felt, because she wanted me, but my husband was there for us, too.  She started to rely on him more after a while.  
 

The evenings are better for most of us in this state.  All the activating hormones are abnormally high in the day, and they settle down in the evening for some of us.  So, I would read my daughter a story every night.  We would snuggle and talk then.  “Audible” has books that read to you, if that is easier for you.  We read the same books over and over.  We had Mary Poppins on Audible, and she loved that.  
 

I would go to bed at the same time as she did - 7:30 or 8, (and we slept in the same bed.  I don’t recommend that if you are not all ready doing that, but my daughter felt a lot of comfort because we had done this before, and changing that custom in the midst of my illness wasn’t something I wanted to do.)  So, she had a reliable time that she could be with me every day even if the day was rough.  If I felt crummy, no matter; I kept that time for her.  I think it helped her to not feel abandoned.


Mornings were horrible until at least noon.  The rest of the day was a crap shoot.  I might feel worse or a bit better at any time.  Mornings were filled with terrible, terrible anxiety.  Getting ready to go and getting my daughter ready to go were the most terrible times for both of us.  My anxiety was completely out of control.  There was nothing I could do but disengage and even doing that was hard.  Many days I had to get her ready anyway.
 

If at all possible, see if another family member can do a lot of the morning work with your daughter especially the rushing her to get ready.  Make sure that you set out everything for the morning the night before.  Clothes, shoes, hairbrush, hair ties, backpack, whatever you need for both of you. Absolutely every last thing you will need.   Searching for things in the morning caused me immense anxiety.  
 

You may want to cut your daughter’s hair short unless it’s thick and unlikely to tangle.  I did not do this, and I wish I had.  Her hair was one of the most difficult things.  It’s very fine.  If I had cut it short, I would have avoided so many of my own meltdowns.  She would have been furious at first, but that would have been preferable to the alternative.  Otherwise, keep it braided all the time if you leave it long.  No exceptions.  When she’s asleep, on the weekends, all the time.  Wash it, braid it, and never leave it down.

 

Another thing that going to bed early did for me was that I got more sleep.  I would wake up early every day.  Four, five am. The early morning wake ups are caused by the nervous system being dysregulated.  Each morning, around 4:00 am, a normal person’s cortisol begins to gently rise.  This is in preparation for waking up.  It rises gently, slowly until it reaches a point that wakes us.  For people in dysautonomia, like us, there is a sudden spike in cortisol during the process.  We wake up early and can’t go back to sleep, but we are so anxious that we can’t really do anything with this extra time.  In fact, I spent it worrying about how my day would go after my daughter woke up.  Going for a gentle walk is a good thing to do if you have other people who will stay with your daughter.  A gentle walk every day is very important.  Jogging or working out made me more anxious.

 

Some people have luck using a sleep mask or blackout curtains to help them avoid the early wake ups.  You should try it.  I didn’t have that luck.  Now, the mask helps me sleep or go back to sleep, but in the beginning it wasn’t useful.  
 

There are so many other tips I could give you about getting through this with a child.  I will think of more later, but showing love is the most important.  Show her that you love her every chance you get.  I have tried to make sure that whatever happened that day or however grumpy or angry or snappy I had been or would be, I took the time when I felt more human to show her that I loved her.

 

I hope your course of this illness is much shorter than mine has been, but feel free to write on my thread anytime with any questions you might have.

Don’t let my thread scare you.  My situation was made worse by years of mistakes, doctors’s prescriptions, etc. Please don’t read it and think your journey will be anything like mine especially in length.

You are not alone at all.  The people on this forum hear your story so often!  A bad reaction, told to keep taking it, your experiences dismissed.  The idea that we have to buck up and power through a bad reaction to a medication is what is crazy.  How it came to this!

Maybe you are using a phone?  I can see them in my phone, but I don’t know why.  There may be a setting either in SA or on the phone. Idk
