No longer seeing a Psychiatrist, I am seeing a Holistic doctor now.. She will start my taper of Lexapro 5mg. mid January.

 

I have severe anxiety and depression with panic attacks.  Being that I'm treatment resistant will i continue to have withdrawals throughout my taper? Also..will my withdrawals ease up with lesser & lesser tapers? Or will withdrawals be my new norm? I have been having withdrawals since Covid in August 2021 because of my resistance to antidepressant. Also having phantom smell of burning ash tray.

Hi @Chlo

 

Welcome to SA. We are a volunteer run site that helps members taper off of medications. Although I'm sorry you are going through this, I'm glad you found us.

 

This is your page where you will receive information, you can ask questions, submit comments, talk with other members going through symptoms like you are/or have been through it. We ask that members only have one page so we can keep all your information in one place.

 

Could you please create a signature for us.

 

Instructions:  Withdrawal History Signature

 

I'm going to give you some information in tapering lexapro.

 

Tips for tapering off escitalopram (Lexapro)

 

Before you begin tapering what you need to know

 

Why taper by 10% of my dosage?

 

Brain Remodelling

 

Fear, terror, panic, and anxiety

 

Brass Monkey Slide

 

Keep it Simple, Slow and Stable

 

Skipping Days vs Every Day Dosing Graph

 

We don't suggest a lot of supplements on here. But we do suggest magnesium and omega. Vitamin B can be very stimulating.

 

Magnesium

 

Omega-3 Fish Oil

 

Phantom smells are very normal. You can search the topic in the upper right hand corner of the front page and read about it. I had phantom smells of dirt for months. It finally went away.

 

Please read the above links, and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Hello Froggie, does it show my signature? Being new to the group some things are confusing to me. Also the Brass monkey slide, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. So if I taper 10% of a 5mg dose then that means for 4-6 weeks I will stay on that 10% tapered dose right? 

And I know everyone is different,  but can someone please tell me if I will ever smile and laugh again, I feel like I'm bringing my whole family down with me.

It shows your signature in a separate post. Just follow the link I gave you and you will be able to get it to the bottom of your introduction page.

 

Yes, if you do a 10% taper you would hold that amount for 4 weeks then taper 10% of that amount and hold another 4 weeks and so on.

 

So 10% of 5 mg of Lexapro would be 4.5 mg. Then 10% of 4.5 mg would be 4.05 mg and so forth.

 

If you do the Brassmonkey Slide you would taper 2% a week for 4 weeks then hold that last dose for 2 weeks before tapering again.

 

Yes you will laugh and smile again. I never thought I would, but I did.

I am wondering if I should start a low histamine diet or go with the GAPS diet. I'm having bad pains in my upper abdomen.  Also any suggestions on supplements? 

Has anyone done ice cold therapy or had the vagus nerve stimulator implanted?

Try going to the upper right hand corner where you click on the arrow to sign out. Go to Account Settings.  Where it shows Chlo that is where you type in your medications and information. Then on the left hand side click on signature. Type it in and be sure to hit "Save".

Can anyone recommend a diet to settle my stomach. I get bloating in upper abdomen and belching a lot. I have cut out most dairy and grains. Also my panic attacks and anxiety are causing me shortness of breath and yawning. I try to hold back the tears.

Hi @Chlo

 

The shortness of breath and yawning are very common symptoms of anxiety. I get it a lot, so please don't be alarmed.

 

Take a look at this link:

 

 

Here is a link on stomach problems:

 

Digestive problems:  Nausea, Diarrhoea, Bloating, GERD

 

 

 

We don't suggest supplements except the magnesium and omega that I told you about previously.

 

I hope this helps. So glad you were able to get your signature figured out🙂

Being that I've developed a resistance to antidepressants since August and still on them, I have been dealing with withdrawals since then, would I be able to taper at 10% and not feel the more severe withdrawals? I start my taper on the 12th of this month. Or should I still go at 5%? I'm just wondering if the withdrawals would be any different since I'm getting them with my AD that I'm still taking. 🤔 and do they make liquid droppers that accustom to our tapers?

Being that I've developed a resistance to antidepressants since August and still on them, I have been dealing with withdrawals since then, would I be able to taper at 10% and not feel the more severe withdrawals? I start my taper on the 12th of this month. Or should I still go at 5%? I'm just wondering if the withdrawals would be any different since I'm getting them with my AD that I'm still taking. 🤔 and do they make liquid droppers that is accustomed to doses below 5mg?

I can't tell you that you won't have wd symptoms. You can try 10%, hold for 4 weeks and see how you are. If you experience a lot of symptoms then go down to 5%, or do the Brassmonkey Slide:

I have been experiencing withdrawal symptoms since August, I think I will start at 5% taper. I just didn't know if the withdrawals will be the same regardless of starting a taper and having treatment resistant.

All "treatment-resistant" means is that you don't get any benefit from antidepressants.

 

Did you skip any doses of Celexa while you were taking it? Did you forget to take it when you were sick?

 

What times o'clock do you take Lexapro and mirtazapine? At what times of day are your symptoms better or worse?

I never skipped any doses when I was sick. I take lexapro 5mg 9:30 a.m.

and Mirtazapine 15mg. 10:30 p.m. My symptoms are worse from 11:00a.m. to 5:00 pm. They ease up in the evening towards the night.. @Frogie @Altostrata

You can try a 10% taper, but only 1 medication at a time. You never want to taper 2 at the same time because you/we won't know which one is causing problems, if any.

 

Then post notes so we can see how you are doing.

No, you have not developed a resistance. Sometimes other antidepressants don't help withdrawal syndrome from a particular antidepressant, which in your case is Celexa. You may be taking TOO MUCH Lexapro, which is 2-3 times stronger than Celexa.

 

How's your sleep? How has your sleep pattern changed in the last 2 months?

 

How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? How do you feel before and after you take Lexapro?

@AltostrataWell I sleep great only because I take Mirtazapine for that. I feel panicky when  I wake up. But in all I get approx 9 hours sleep. After I take Lexapro I I feel groggy. Then towards noon and mid afternoon I still feel panicky and anxious along with bouts of crying.

So you sleep soundly until you wake up, then you feel panicky? What time o'clock is this? How long does the panicky feeling last?

 

You do not feel groggy from mirtazapine in the morning?

Please explain more about this. Does it happen every day? When do these symptoms start after you take Lexapro at 9:30 a.m.? Do they gradually fade out in the evening?

 

Which of these symptoms are you calling withdrawal symptoms?

After I take lexapro in morning I start to feel groggy, panicky, crying, hard to breath. These symptoms stay with me through the day til around 6:00 pm. Then they subside the rest of the evening and night. 

My "withdrawals" are panic attacks, headache, no appetite, dizziness, lethargic, and crying depression.

Yes, you can take a Motrin. How often do you get a headache?

 

On 1/6/2022 at 6:20 PM, Chlo said:

9:30am-Lexapro 5mg, Atorvastatin 20mg, Omeprazol 40mg.

 

Why are you taking these drugs together at the same time? It looks like you're having a reaction to one of them, or maybe from the interaction of all three drugs.

 

How long have you been taking 0.5mg Klonopin at noon?

 

Please do this: Move the omeprazole an hour later each day until you're taking it in the evening.

 

Please put ALL your drugs in this Interactions Checker and post the report or a link to it in this topic.

What drug changes have you made since January 1?

 

Do you take Klonopin every day? If so, when did you start taking it every day? It's very important that you note when you take it, and the dosage, in your daily notes.
