Is someone going through this alone?


Recommended Posts

I would be interested in knowing if there is someone going through withdrawal alone and with the necessity of keeping a job as well.

(19 years old) More or less 2011 Citalopram 20 mg one year for depression following stress by death of my mother quit cold Turkey

 

2012 rmore or less relapse depression after CT, new psychiatrist put me on Citalopram 20 mg, Depakin 300 mg, Efexxor 75 mg

Don't remember between 2016-2017 tapered over a few months all the drugs with the assistance of my psychologist 

 

2018 relapse (or withdrawal?) depression started Cipralex 20 mg until july 2020 when I tapered during a period of about 4 months until November 2020

 

February 2021 (29 years old): feeling depressed, can't sleep, anxiety, paranoia, agoraphobia, hardly functional

 

Currently (since March 4 2021): Lithium Resilient 83mg extended release 2 capsules (forced to take it)

Hi Marta. I hope you are doing ok. I am going through my journey alone. I think people don't understand unless they have been through it themselves. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other each day. Be proud of yourself for what you are achieving. On the really low days any little thing you manage to do is an achievement. Even if it's just that you managed to brush your teeth. 💜

Aropax 1993-2004 Citalopram 2004-2020 Lexapro 2020-2021 

Ativan Occasional use since 2017

Aspirin 100mg daily since 2015

Zopiclone 7.5mg Half a tablet When needed

 

Lexapro taper February 2021 10mg to 5mg then 5mg to 2.5mg then stop 16/4/21

Zopiclone 7.5mg Half a tablet 2-3 times a week.

Supplements 5HTP, Magnesium, Vitamin B Complex, Melatonin, Zinc as advised to take by Doctor.

Homeopathics Aurum, Nux vom, Aconite (Prescribed by a Homeopath)

 

My Taper was short on the advice of my Doctor due to my reaction to Lexapro. I took it slower than the 2 week taper he advised.
