Speaking as someone with withdrawal syndrome.

Is the mini pill neuro-active?

And could it cause problems for someone who has withdrawal syndrome?

Thanks

Hello @Helenrowena58

 

Welcome to SA.

I'm sorry to hear that you're going through the effects of withdrawal syndrome.  I hope you're doing ok.  There has been some conversation on the site regarding the use of progesterone.  Here is a link:

Hello, @Helenrowena58

 

From what drugs is your daughter suffering withdrawal syndrome? 

 

Lots of people have odd reactions to birth control pills. If she has withdrawal syndrome, this may not be the time to add another drug, may rock the boat further.

Did she go off a drug recently? From what drug is she suffering withdrawal syndrome?

 

We really need this: Please summarize your drug and withdrawal history in your signature You may need to use a computer to do this.

I don't know what this means.

 

If your daughter is on a cocktail of drugs and is having unpleasant symptoms from them, you and she need to talk to your doctor. We can't advise you about what drugs to take to compensate for adverse drug effects.

 

We can counsel you about what drugs to taper to reduce the adverse effects, but we have to know what these symptoms are.

She is suffereing from withdrawal syndrome after coming off Fluoxetine too quickly,  The symptoms have been lasting approx, 4 years

It was the doctor who gave her the wrong information in the first place that got  her in this situation and so not going to ask him again,

 

If she took CBD oil would it make her symptoms worse, ?

SA helps members to taper psychiatric drugs.  You could do a site search to find other members who are taking this drug.  However I think the best thing to do would be to find support groups/forums for IBS since that seems to be one of the (main?) reasons people take it.

 

I did a search and found this one:  https://www.ibspatient.org/community/
