Hi. I'm new here. I've been suffering from severe & serious WD symptoms for almost 4 years now. My body is in chaos still. I don't know all the abbreviations yet do excuse me for that. I was on highest of Zyprexa for 6 years and also 40mg of Prozac. Told to taper off Zyprexa in 2 weeks!  Tapered off Prozac in 6 months. I feel lost as my body continues to be banged around from odd symptom to the next, zaps, twists, spasms, ears ringing at 3 different levels, tics, balance issues, jackhammer esophagus, Dystonia, TD...immuno suppressed. I catch the craziest illnesses and am lucky to be alive! I'm a fighter and came here to find help and even terminology for my overall set of issues, too. I'm very confused from what has happened, but also what to do about it to get better! My Dr abandoned me after he hurt me and I've been trying to fight thru the discrimination to find my own specialists but it's been a tough journey! I'm here and will continue to read on. Hope you don't feel alone anymore and maybe I helped in some way? IDK. I was on Prozac for 26 years and had no idea until about 15 min ago that may have been a contributing factor also? Not sure.
