The worst part I think was having akathisia. Thankfully that ended  a long time ago and never returned. 

How are you feeling now? Hoping for a positive update as I am almost 3 months in

I've improved a lot, thank you for asking.  I can't seem to find my intro thread but if you can, I posted a detailed update last year I believe.  I no longer have akathisia, tardive dyskinesia, dissociation, derealization & depersonalization, memory has improved, cognition as well.  Lots of other improvements too but I can't recall them all at the moment.  It does get better!

I found the update!! So glad to hear you’re feeling better! I had a severe immediate reaction so this definitely gives me hope of healing.

You'll get there, I have talked to quite a few people who had immediate severe reactions who recovered too.

Hello, my son (11 years old) is having severe adverse reactions few weeks after taking fluoxetine (prozac)- nightmares, nausea, dizziness. He has never had any other psych drug or alcohol, of course. His doctor said to stop taking the drug immediately, but it's not getting better yet and I started to worry we shouldn't have cold turkeyed. So now, besides the depressions, he probably wouldn't be able to do any sports or go out without risk fainting. I really hate these drugs- I think that if he would have done coke or meth it wouldn't ended as bad as this :(

I had a severe adverse reaction to Lexapro 7 months ago. I’m still physically debilitated and housebound daily, unable to live my life at all. Has anyone else dealt with severe body weakness? I can’t sit, stand or walk for long without needing to sit, just the thought of leaving my house terrifies me with all of my symptoms and how sick I am. I’ve yet to find a post with someone who has had trouble to stand or walk due to weakness.

Hi @rebeccaannxoI have dealt with weakness for 18 months, particularly my left leg & foot and my arms & hands. I have struggled to walk, lift my daughter or chase her at the park. I know how scary it is dealing with weakness but from what I have read on here, it is a common WD symptom. Sorry you are going through this. I hope a window opens for you soon. 💞

Mid-August 2020 - started 15mg Mirtazapine, increased to 30mg 2 weeks later. Late-September 2020 - switched to 20mg Paroxetine as Mirtazapine exacerbated RLS. October 2020 - stopped Paroxetine because of worsening RLS, muscle twitching and general restlessness.

Mid-October 2020 - Switched to 50mg Sertraline. Restlessness, muscle twitching and other symptoms even worse. Stopped taking it on 18 November following advice from GP - took every other day for a week before stopping completely. Mid-November 2020 - GP prescribed Propranolol to take as and when required for anxiety. Have only taken a few times as it makes me very light headed. January 2020 - currently taking magnesium citrate powder in evenings to help with RLS. Also taking high strength omega-3 fish oil.

It’s weird because my body doesn’t feel weak, but I can’t sit up, stand or walk for long without feeling tired, weak and just not good. So I’m guessing it’s from internal weakness? It’s so scary to not know what’s going on! It makes it so I’m housebound everyday, unable to walk outside or leave the house

What dosage was it, and was it your first time on Lexapro? How did the symptoms first come on? Was it solely body weakness, or were there other neurological and physical components? 

 

Have you gotten any testing done, any blood work, scans, etc? I took a very high dosage of Lexapro for years, and when I tried reinstating after a cold turkey, I got many adverse problems, including body weakness, which I still have, albeit not as severe.

 

Have you been tested for COVID?

It was my first time on any medication, I had a 10mg dose. I had about 30-40 neurological symptoms. Completely bed ridden for 8 weeks and now housebound ever since. Went to ER twice and had numerous tests done and blood work about 4 times. It was just a VERY severe adverse reaction. 
 

no I do not have Covid, I had it in January but my Lexapro issues started in October.

Have doctors actually said it was an adverse reaction, or are you guessing that Lexapro was the cause? How sudden was it when you started taking it, within the first few days?

Yes it’s from the Lexapro. It started after the second pill. Do a search on adverse reactions on this site before you feel the need to question what someone is going through.

Considering I've posted on here because of possibly having a severe reaction to getting back on Lexapro, you don't need to be condescending to me. I'm asking because I'm curious.

 

Being rude to people isn't going to make your issues go away, especially on a forum of people in the same, if not worse situations than you.

There are not many medical professionals that seem to be able to diagnose adverse reactions to psychiatric drugs, which is one of the reasons why this site and other like it exist.

That's true. I thought maybe they were lucky and had a doctor more knowledgeable in this sort of thing.

I don’t think your case sounds like the type of instant adverse reaction that this thread is referring to.  This is a body of people who only have very fleeting involvement with antidepressants, and suffered more or less immediate negative consequences.  

 

Your medication history is longer term, including 2 attempts at cold turkey.  Maybe lexipro is causing the issues you are dealing with, and we know these tablets can cause both health issues and long term withdrawal symptoms, but it isn’t an immediate adverse reaction. 

 

I only make the distinction because I see a lot of people saying they had an immediate adverse event and have not recovered, when their drug history is a lot more complex than that.   It scares newbies who have had an immediate AR and think they too will not heal.  

 

Genuine immediate AR has followed a fairly similar path to full recovery in everyone I have spoken with who has suffered one.

 

March 2003 took two sartroline tablets after a traumatic incident and had a reaction so stopped.  I am not sure now whether what I had for the next 18 months was WD after the reaction or the emotional fallout from the traumatic event.  Some of it was very similar to WD in hindsight.  

 

February 2014 - Took five pristiq (50mg) tablets and three Ativan and had a severe reaction.
Extreme withdrawal symptoms for three weeks compounded by visit to naturopath -

One week later took 900mg St John's Wort x 3 daily for six weeks - more negative effects and suspected serotonin syndrome - before tapering over three weeks. Last tablet late May 2014.

Waves and windows cycle of recovery with longer windows and manageable waves.

May 2015 - already in a mild wave, following a usual pattern, I took clarithromicin and amoxicillin for two weeks for a sinus infection which I also seem to have had quite a reaction to.

 

February 2016 - Feeling much better.  I still have waves and windows but they are manageable.  I'm largely enjoying life again.

Hi there, I have fully recovered now. I had ADR from sertraline in 2018.

January 2018 - 50mg sertraline for only 2 days, had adverse reaction.

On 0 psych drugs now.

Took a very long time for symptoms to go away, got better mentally 100% in April 2020.

Turns out also had low vitamin d, low calcium and low thyroid in August 2020.

Treated with colecalciferol and now all physical symptoms gone. Possibly overlap between this issue & sertraline symptoms?

May 2021 Still taking colecalciferol, all physical symptoms gone. Unsure if this will return if I stop vit D for long time ?

Now consider myself fully healed.

Other medication: 5mg certirizine for allergic rhinitis once a day or when needed, cut down from 10mg just in case that was causing issue too since i've taken for over 8 years now.

FULLY RECOVERED NOW 🙂

Yes, I did not have memory loss as such; I had more difficulty in thinking and brain fog but my memory wasn't impaired. I definately had dpdr, emotional blunting and body weakness; I did have GI problems which I no longer have and I was told it was IBS and that lasted quite a long time, I didn't connect it to the SSRIs but maybe it is related somehow? The drdp took the longest and body weakness came and went for a long time. I still sometimes get fatigue in my body but I think there may be some other reason though when I took the SSRI the fatigue I got afterwards was waaayyy greater than what I get now. I had pain in my skin and pain that I couldn't really place but it hurt more if I moved too quickly, especially if I turned my head quickly or my arms and body. I do not know what that was but I also felt distress if I moved too fast though I don't know why.

 

 

I will link my introduction because most of it is in there; I hope that it might help somewhat

I have

Was on Lexapro for 66 days starting in early January.  5mg for a week, 10mg for 3, 7.5 for 3 days, then 5mg and 2.5mg for approx two weeks after.  

Was on Lithium for 60 days starting in late January. 1 300mg ER pill a day.  Stopped CT

Was given a .5 ativan script in early Jan.  Took it maybe 20x total from early Jan to beg of June, 2020.

 

-Fall of 2019:  had two vertigo attacks for the first time with no warning, each followed by 4-5 days of morning dizziness.

-Last Friday of 2019:  had first ever, out of the blue, panic attack.  Went to ER- didn't know what was happening.  Was diagnosed w/GAD, even though had never had anxiety or depression problems before.  Basically no health problems at all prior to this, and in very good shape emotionally, physically, and mentally.

-4 days after panic attack given lexapro.  That's when the hell began.  Was on it 66 days.  Reacted badly to it.  Gave me suicidal ideation 4 wks after starting it, plus exhaustion, off the charts anxiety, dizziness, and fatigue.  Did a fast taper over 5 wks.  Was on it 66 days total.

-been off lexapro completely since mid-March, 2020.  First 3 weeks I got better and better.  Then, week 4 into WD got slammed.  Since then, over 64 side effects/symptoms.  Can't drive.  At times, barely surviving.

-since Jan., have been to the e r 16x.

-was given lithium after experienced SI from lexapro to as a "mood stabilizer".  Never really noticed anything from it, nor anything after stopping it, except for a few days of heightened depression about a week after.

-was given low dosage ativan script 2nd week into lexapro to deal with the anxiety/panic spike caused by the lexapro.  Took it perhaps 20x between Jan and June, 2020.  Always made me feel better, but last time it was taken (early June) experienced intrusive thoughts after so stopped it.  Didn't feel any negative reaction from stopping it, perhaps b/c it was taken so infrequently and the dosage was so low.

Have you had any blood work like an ANA screening? I recently had it come back positive. antinuclear antibodies attack the healthy parts of the nervous system from what I read, which can explain my symptoms. I'm not sure if Lexapro can do that, though, but I had recently been back on Lexapro after a cold turkey of it a few months before.

I’ve had blood work but not ANA screening. I’m not sure if that’s caused my Lexapro. Unfortunately I’ll never know, just hope I eventually recover
