•Current supplements:

B12, Magnesium Glycinate, Ashwagandha,  Multivitamin, C, D3, Nac, CoQ10, CBD.

 

 

How is that ashwaganda treating you? I read an amazing study about how much cortisol it reduces, and I am thinking of taking it at night, this was the study, incredible results, I love seeing stuff about supplements in paper!

 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3573577/

Klonopin Mar 2013 - Feb 2021 - used .000 gram scale to cut pills did very slowly from 2017-2021, had no issues stopping after final dose that was sub .5mg diazepam equivalent (If anyone wants advice for tapering Klonopin with a gram scale, feel free to ask!)

tapered off zyprexa twice over 2 weeks in my 20's, had little issue with that after about 3-4 years of use both times.

Prozac 40MG for 5 years - 2016 - 2021 (Total of 13 years of consecutive use)

(Most recent after last break, been on cumulatively in my life 14 years all times combined, 3 separate on/off occasions, all successful except most recent 3/4)

Recent Issue:  Tapered gradually from 40MG down to 0MG from May 7th - Aug 18th

Felt fine through Oct 5th, slowly started getting depression, panic, and anxiety (Was original thing I was treated for)

Decided to go back on SSRI Nov 1st, reacted very bad to 20mg reinstatement, day 1 was fine, day 2 had ADR. Doctor said to drop dosage.

Took 5mg for 2 weeks, 10mg for 2 weeks, still felt physically sick, could not take 20mg for more than 3 days, looking for advice going forward (ADR)

Not happy about it, but on 1.5mg 3x ativan and temazepam 15mg for sleep

(Was sleeping 2-3 hrs nightly prior to temazepam, was first thing that broke 2-3 hr then wide awake sleep cycle)

Main symptoms: headaches from certain foods and meds, sleep is broken, anxiety and agitation is extremely high, cortisol spike sensitive, bad in morning better at night, panic attacks, concentration is awful, focus is awful, anhedonia is awful, sensitive to light and noise, especially noise, extreme depression, intense bouts of fear, every looks and feels 'scary' at times, stress tolerance extremely low, have bouts of extreme anxiety, and bouts akathesia, and bouts extreme anticipatory anxiety over basic events/tasks. Nervous system is clearly crashed.

No Prozac for 249 days.

Haven't really noticed a difference as of yet. I'm still having bad withdrawals or reactions to my medication. But it doesn't hurt to try it.

Do you feel better or worse after taking 5mg Lexapro in the morning?

Worse.  I have been posting notes for the past 5 days. Are they not showing up? Alto I have been feeling the same since August...just miserable 😢 All these withdrawals or whatever it is wont subside or stabilize. The antidepressants aren't working anymore.

It appears you are having an adverse reaction to 5mg Lexapro. Suggest you start tapering with the liquid form. See Tips for tapering off escitalopram (Lexapro)

I see my Holistic doctor tomorrow to start that. Do you recommend 10% or less?

If I were you, I'd reduce 5mg Lexapro to 4mg Lexapro (20%).

@Altostrata     Okay...thank you for your advice❤ Why do you think nothing is helping me stabilize? If I could feel like I did before I had covid and was on celexa for 20 years I would do it, then eventually wean off, but I can't even stabilize on anything because it doesn't work. Why is that?

Also...I just got message from my Holistic doctor and she wants to do this  1.5 ml daily for 3 weeks then wean to 0.75 ml for 3 weeks.

Is this too much too fast?

Her protocol is from Kelly Brogen Holistic Psychiatrist.  But, I trust your opinion 🙂

As explained to you numerous times, it appears you are having an adverse reaction to Lexapro, that's why you haven't "stabilized". Your other drugs may also be contributing.

 

Your decision about what to do. If you follow your psychiatrist's advice, please discuss complaints with the doctor, not with us.

Yes ma'am, I will discuss with her about doing the 20% instead. Thank you!

@AltostrataYes ma'am, I will discuss with her about doing the 20% instead. Thank you! I'm sorry you've had to explain numerous times, I'm just a mess at the moment. Do you think reducing the lexapro will ease the adverse reaction and then I will stabilize? Sorry for all the questions.

@brassmonkeywould you please help me figure this out.. so on your scale I put. 5mg in beginning dose,, then percentage to decrease each week would be?? And hold for how many weeks? I am not math savvy at all, even though you have the scale already available, i am still baffled.

If I were you, I'd reduce 5mg Lexapro to 4mg Lexapro (20%).

So start at 4mg and stay at that for 4 weeks, then 3mg for 4 weeks, and so forth?

I don't know. We need to see how you do at 4mg first!!!!

@Chlo it sounds like you are trying to use one of the spreadsheets we supply. For a standard Brassmonkey Slide the percentage would be 2.5% a week with a hold period of 2 weeks. This will yield a reduction on 10% every 6 weeks.

 

Starting with a dose of 5mg the first reduction cycle will look like this:

 

Week 1    5mg X 0.975 = 4.875mg

Week 2   5mg X 0.95 = 4.75mg

Week 3   5mg X 0.925 = 4.625mg

Week 4   5mg X 0.9 = 4.5mg

Week 5   5mg X 0.9 = 4.5mg

Week 6   5mg X 0.9 = 4.5mg

 

Your second reduction cycle would look like this:

 

Week 1    4.5mg X 0.975 = 4.387mg

Week 2   4.5mg X 0.95 = 4.275mg

Week 3   4.5mg X 0.925 = 4.275mg

Week 4   4.5mg X 0.9 = 4.05mg

Week 5   4.5mg X 0.9 = 4.05mg

Week 6   4.5mg X 0.9 = 4.05mg

 

From there on you follow the same pattern for your calculations.

 

20 years on Paxil starting at 20mg and working up to 40mg. Sept 2011 started 10% every 6 weeks taper (2.5% every week for 4 weeks then hold for 2 additional weeks), currently at 7.9mg. Oct 2011 CTed 15oz vodka a night, to only drinking 2 beers most nights, totally sober Feb 2013.

Since I wrote this I have continued to decrease my dose by 10% every 6 weeks (2.5% every week for 4 weeks and then hold for an additional 2 weeks). I added in an extra 6 week hold when I hit 10mg to let things settle out even more. When I hit 3mgpw it became hard to split the drop into 4 parts so I switched to dropping 1mgpw (pill weight) every week for 3 weeks and then holding for another 3 weeks.  The 3 + 3 schedule turned out to be too harsh so I cut back to dropping 1mgpw every 4 weeks which is working better.

Final Dose 0.016mg.     Current dose 0.000mg 04-15-2017

Alto recommended to do a 20% taper. Would you mind figuring this up for me like you did the 10%, please ma'am?

What @Altostrata is asking for is your notes now, so we know what is going on before you even think about tapering. 

PREVIOUS medications and discontinuations: Have been on medications since 1996. 

 Valium, Gabapentin, Lamictal, Prilosec and Zantac from 2000 to 2015 with a fast taper by a psychiatrist.

 Liquid Lexapro Nov, 2016 to 31-March, 2019 Lexapro free!!! (total Lexapro taper was 4 years-started with pill form)

---CURRENT MEDICATIONS:Supplements:Milk Thistle, Metamucil, Magnesium Citrate, Vitamin D3, Levothyroxine 25mcg, Vitamin C, Krill oil.

Xanax 1mg 3x day June, 2000 to 19-September, 2020 Went from .150 grams (average weight of 1 Xanax) 3x day to .003 grams 3x day.

19-September, 2020 Xanax free!!! (total Xanax taper was 15-1/2 months-1-June, 2019-19-September, 2020)

I am not a medical professional.

The suggestions I make are based on personal experience.
