The Chemistry of Calm .. How to support your brain with safe, nutritional supplements.

Hello,
I am tapering Lorazepam, and my daily dose is 1.125 mgs.

I followed a long hold for 5 months, ( Nov-March 2019) hoping to find some stability, 

but it did not work. So I resumed my taper and hold pattern.
For the last 3 years, I have been using a daily microtaper, cutting .001mgs per day, with holds as needed.
Symptoms are head pressure, labored breathing, palpitations, abrupt surges of dizziness, this being my worst symptom for now, internal tremors, my latest nemesis, unsteadiness, anxiety, plus many other symptoms that cycle in, and cycle out consistently. Not a day passes, without grief :(

I take no other meds.

January 2013 - 15 day quick taper off 10 mgs of Lexapro, and 25 mgs of Sertraline,

at a detox clinic.

all of those supplements are fine to experiment if you're healthy.

 

a lot of them are highly problematic for those of us in psych drug withdrawal...though a few are generally good as well.

I'm very uncomfortable with the author's reliance on a pseudo-"chemical imbalance" theory to justify his recommendations. For example, you cannot get "depleted" in brain serotonin.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.

oh, right, Alto...I didn't read the text....just looked at the diagram...

 

the chemical imbalance theory has been shot to hell...a long time ago  :lol:

 

Chemical imbalance myth takes a big public fall (no, antidepressants do NOT correct an imbalance of serotonin, nor do other psychiatric drugs correct anything at all)   http://beyondmeds.com/2012/01/25/chemicalimbalancemythfalls/
