Hello everybody,

 

uhhhh-last sunday I did fall on glaze an broke my shoulder.I can tell you I was terrified like hell-and still...

 

when i did fall I could not move anymore and was screaming like hell because of this terrible pain.The emergency doctor arrived and because I could not move because of the pain he gave me a infusion of Benzos and Novalgin. I did not help...well finally we arrived in the Hospital it took about an hour until we got the radiograph because the pain was unbearable.I got 2 more Infusion of novalgin and I was scared of hell what it would do to my nervous System.

 

so my left shoulder was broken i got a surgery immediately.

 

I was last Weekend,today I m back home and I feel very very weak,sick and depressed.I can go to my moms house for one week and I really pray that I will feel better soon.I also realize that I just don t have any reserves left ..

Hello solida,

 

I'm so sorry for you! I hope you're doing a little better and that you'll recover soon.

 

I really can understand that this is too much for the moment and that you feel you've no more reserves left. I already feel the same if something unexpected happens.

 

Get well soon!

So sorry to hear this.

It's difficult when these things happen that are so out of our control.

Quick healing to you! I hope you are able to rest as much as possible. You will get through this.

Started Fluoxetine Jan. 2010

Tried to go off of it in Sept. 2010

Weaned too fast and was back on it by Nov. 2010

Didn't work as good the second time around.

Started to wean again in Nov. 2011 and was off for good by April? 2012

Thanks,

 

it s just so stirring.I m very very sensible to all kind of medication and even supplements still send me to hell..and now due to this accident

I got shots of pain killers,benzos,antibiotika,cortison and the anesthesia. all at once and in high dosis--i m so scared right now

 

.

my nerves are burning,i m trembling and feel so off and overwind.it is a real nightmare.

Solida,

 

That is terrible! I'm so sorry this happened to you. I pray you mend quickly and perfectly. I understand your being afraid with the reactions you've experienced with medications.

 

Hugs,

Solida, I really, really, really feel for you!

 

I fell about 6 months ago and didn't break my shoulder, but tore cartilage and developed frozen shoulder. The pain is quite debilitating and sleep was almost impossible. Is it in your dominant arm? Is your arm in a sling?

Started in 2000 - On 150mg most of the time, (but up to 225mg at highest dose for 6 months in the beginning)
Reduced off easily first time - but got depressed (not too much anxiety) 6 months later
Back on effexor for another 9 months.
Reduced off again with no immediate w/d - suddenly got depressed and anxious ++ again 3 or 4 months later.
Back on effexor - this time for 3 years
Reduced off over a month - 6 weeks later terrible anxiety - back on.
Rinse and repeat 4 more times - each time the period before the anxiety comes back got shorter and shorter
Jan - July 2012 75mg down to 37.5mg;, 8/3/12 - 35mg. 8/25/12 - 32mg. 9/11- 28mg, 10/2 - 25mg, 10/29 - 22mg, 11/19 - 19.8mg; 12/11 - 17m,
1/1- 15.5mg; 1/22 -14mg, 2/7 14.9mg, 2/18 - 17.8mg - crashed big time: back to 75mg where i sat for 2 years....

4th  March 2015 - 67.5mg;   31st March - 60mg;  24th April - 53mg; 13th May - 48mg; 26th May - 45mg;  9th June - 41mg; 1 July- 37.5mg; 20 July - 34mg; 11 August - 31mg; 1st Sept - 28mg;  1st Dec - 25.8mg;  28th Dec - 23.2mg; 23rd Jan-21.9mg; Feb 7th- 21mg; March 1st - 20.1mg, March 30th - 18mg

Solida,

 

I'm really sorry you're struggling and in such pain.

 

I hope you feel better soon.

July 2001 prescribed 20mg citalopram for depression;
On and off meds from 2003-2006.
February 2006 back on 20mg citalopram and stayed on it until my last attempt at tapering in September 2011.
By far the worst withdrawal symptoms ever. Reinstated to 20mg citalopram
October 2012 - found this forum!
Nov 2012 to Feb 2013 did 10% taper, got doen to 11mg - was going great until stressful situation. Cortisol levels hit the roof, hideous insomnia forced me to updose to 20mg.
March 2016 - close to 100% back to normal!

Thank you all very much,

 

Peggy, no it is not my dominat arm-thank god.it is in a sling yes,but i have to get Physiotherapie every day-the doctor told me that it can happen very quickly,

that a shoulder gets frozen.but well i m glad it weren t my hips.

 

i also had a urinary retention from the meds .

 

so, i m off now to my mom and can t wait to see my dog again.she was with me when it happened-a friend i called carried her away,she didn t move one step from my side.uh makes me weepy.

Solida, I'm so sorry for all your pain. It seems so unfair to have these problems in addition to withdrawal!

Psychotropic drug history: Pristiq 50 mg. (mid-September 2010 through February 2011), Remeron (mid-September 2010 through January 2011), Lexapro 10 mg. (mid-February 2011 through mid-December 2011), Lorazepam (Ativan) 1 mg. as needed mid-September 2010 through early March 2012

Solids, so very sorry. What meds are you on right now? When and what were the most recent changes?

1st round Prozac 1989/90, clear depression symptoms. 2nd round Prozac started 1999 when admitted to dr. I was tired. Prozac pooped out, switch to Cymbalta 3/2006. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder due to mania 6/2006--then I was taken abruptly off Cymbalta and didn't know I had SSRI withdrawal. Lots of meds for my intractable "bipolar" symptoms.

Zyprexa started about 9/06, mostly 5mg. Tapered 4/12 through12/29/12

Wellbutrin. XL 300 mg started 1/07, tapered 1/18/13 through 7/8/13

Oxazepam mostly continuously since 6/06, 30mg since 12/12, tapered 1.17.14 through 8.26.15

11/06 Lithium 600mg twice daily, 2.2.14 400mg TID DIY liquid, 2.12.14 1150mg, 3.2.14 1100mg, 3.18.14 1075mg, 4/14 updose to 1100mg, 6.1.14 900 mg capsules 7.8.14 810mg, 8.17.14 725mg, 8.24.24 700mg...10.22.14 487.5mg, 3.9.15 475mg, 4.1.15 462.5mg 4.21.15 450mg 8.11.15 375mg, 11.28.15 362.5mg, back to 375mg four days later, 3.4.16 updose to 475 (too much going on to risk trouble)

9/4/13 Toprol-XL 25mg daily for sudden hypertension, tapered 11.12.13 through 5.3.14, last 10 days or so switched to atenolol

7.4.14 Started Walsh Protocol

good news Solida!

 

I am 6 months healing so far from a frozen shoulder. It is so debilitating. I probably have about 75% range of motion back in my shoulder now, not too much pain, but i have a tear somewhere that probably exacerbates the pain when i stretch - it may or maynot require surgery in the future to repair.

Started in 2000 - On 150mg most of the time, (but up to 225mg at highest dose for 6 months in the beginning)
Reduced off easily first time - but got depressed (not too much anxiety) 6 months later
Back on effexor for another 9 months.
Reduced off again with no immediate w/d - suddenly got depressed and anxious ++ again 3 or 4 months later.
Back on effexor - this time for 3 years
Reduced off over a month - 6 weeks later terrible anxiety - back on.
Rinse and repeat 4 more times - each time the period before the anxiety comes back got shorter and shorter
Jan - July 2012 75mg down to 37.5mg;, 8/3/12 - 35mg. 8/25/12 - 32mg. 9/11- 28mg, 10/2 - 25mg, 10/29 - 22mg, 11/19 - 19.8mg; 12/11 - 17m,
1/1- 15.5mg; 1/22 -14mg, 2/7 14.9mg, 2/18 - 17.8mg - crashed big time: back to 75mg where i sat for 2 years....
