Hi Peta84 and welcome to SA,


SA is staffed by a small number of peers who are unpaid and unrostered.  SA is an extremely busy site with a lot of members needing assistance.  Due to these things, it is highly unlikely that a live chat room will be added.


SA strongly encourages members to support and encourage each other in their Introduction topics and sometimes they make a connection with another member and they PM (private message) each other.  Also see:






Please create your drug signature following these instructions.  Please update whenever you make a change.


Instructions:  Withdrawal History Signature

Post #1 of this topic has links to many of the helpful topics on SA:


Important topics in the Tapering forum and FAQ


There are many existing topics on SA.  You can use the site search function or an internet search engine and add site:survivingantidepressants.org to the search term.


This is your own Introduction topic.  Each member has only ONE.  Your Introduction topic is the best place to ask questions about your own specific situation and where you can journal your progress.  This keeps your history in place and means that you do not need to repeat your story.

Please DO NOT TAG me - thank you

PLEASE NOTE:  I am not a medical professional.  I provide information and make suggestions.
