Hi Pb,

 

I exercise mostly during the day at 17.00-18.00 sometimes 18.3 no later than 19.00.

I did that some years when I was and exercised at 22.00 ,was a habit but I don't do it anymore

The restlesness was very bad and pressure in my head due to stressful events  and made it worse with very poor sleep to no sleep. I was and am in bad shape and went to my GP , I had no sleep , he suggested to take benzo xanax , I was really helpless and hopeless , my close environment saw me have mood swings and they showed no compassion and understanding , on the opposite , that stesssed me more and my reactions were very compulsive , that made things worse, and they said I had quit the meds, the problem was/is they are not aware of acute withdrwal from th AD and AP, caused more stress to have them think that I needed to get back to meds,

 

My plan for now is to improve my sleep and adjust some things so to be more relaxed.

S0 I added a benzo , I went to my GP, Th e acute withdrawal from the seroxat and AP, I am not sure if its the stop of the seroxat 2 months ago, What is your opinion? Is it the seroxat and the reduction in the a/p zyprexa.I dont want to get back to AD to relieve stress. I have an appointment tomorrow with the GP and want to tell him about the benzo anxiolitic, how I sleep tonight etc.

 

Take care.

Take care Miko ,good luck with the GP .

Thanks Pb.

 

I started taking xanax, I take it for 8 days now. I had panic attack from stress on Friday( heart racing, sweating,couldnt sleep at night,worried about blood sugar , thought was going to die), was at the parking station and panic hit me.from accumulated stress ,I called my GP and went to see him, he said to take 1 in the morning(0,5mg) 1 at nigh(0,5mg)t, for 10 days and then 10 days tapering to 1/2 dose.Isnt that too much? Then after the panic attack next day I went to talk to him , he saw me I was cool and calm, I slept ok, but not rested, I told him its a benzodiazepine and needs tapering, its addictive, he said yes  its addictive  then he said to take it for 1 month more, wtf?

Ill go one more time to talk to him.then I plan to quit after a week after tapering

I checked blood sugar at the pharmacy  on  Friday  was 9,0 in fasting and  Monday  was 1,03.

Hi all

Struggling with severe anxiety, poor concetration, and  dizziness,

I'm off seroxat 2 months now,

It took 3 years to taper from 10mg to 0mg. I've read others that taper in 2-3 momnths from 10mg to 0mg.

A wave that I have to ride it out. Withdrawal from the seroxat or the xanax?

I could use some help

I have to stay up as long as possible.

Stay up ? ,hopefully the mods are around ,my advice wouldn't be any use on meds Miko sorry .

try find a documentary and listen to it under the covers ,I did this last nigh and I was fast asleep . the opposite of what  you want I suppose .

 go to the symptoms and self care and find something to ease the anxiety or you could do what miT talks about and don't fight it ,let it run its course  .

You'll be ok it will pass .

Hi Miko

I reinstated 0.625 of olanzapine and settled.

Will taper with 10%rule after stabilizing.

Even if you jump to zero at zero , sleep will be a big problem to get rid of these drugs.

I felt ,very low dose of previously tapered drug is better than introdusing antihistamine or benzo afresh.

 


Cold turkeyed risperidone (1m.g)and trihexyphenidyl combination drug out of ignorance,In August 2016 after one month use.

Withdrawal symptoms settled at dreamful,disturbing sleep.

Thus introduced to olanzapine for sleep.Started using olanzapine out of ignorance.

Tapering olanzapine 10 m.g from February 2017.

May 2018 :Still suffering dreams,Still tapering olanzapine at 0.625.100ml water+2.5 mg olanzapine. June 2018 22.5ml=0.57mg.July 2018 20ml,August 2018-17.5ml,September 2018-15ml,October 2018 10 ml,December 2018 7 ml, BrassMonkey slide method so far at lower doses.2 nd December cold turkeyed , only to reach minure doses as reinstatement to cutshort endless tapering process.4rth December started 1ml.

Almost no symptoms and sleep is better,So started 0.5 ml from 17-12-2018.

"0"from31-12-18.Re birth would happen from 2020,as rejuvenation would take 2019.

So,  what happened yesterday when I was returning from the hairsaloon

I fell down yesterday,  a dog bite me on the leg,  I felt numbness  I lost balance it was a big hit  to my ego . A guy across the street saw what happened and he  gave antiseptic and ice for the knee.

 

not a happy memory but it was a lesson., had some time on my own to reevaluate things in my life.

 I'm off  xanax  almost  2 weeks  and anxiety has subsided, big difference. I have no anxiety.

 

I'm currently been occupied with things, For 3 months now I'm preparing for a program  and made new connections,  positive thinking and this gives me motivation,

 

I'm having some difficulty  with family and  old m friends.  Not supportive  and I feel alone.

 

I have a social gathering  tonight, we used to go out   13years ago.

I need to see what others see in me for now if my withdrawal doesn't allow It .

I'm  a little worried about it.

Hi miko I hope your gathering goes ok ,it will go better than you fear it will .I had a similar situation on Friday gone ,I was in a big wave and it wrecked me after the wedding all day .

I'm in  the same boat with my relationship ,sadly it looks like its over ,I've been trying to cling on for a while now but sadly its gone on way too long  for her to cope .I'm siting here trying to find rent I can afford .my symptoms so bad I cant do a flat share .

Your doing some good positive work so good on ye .

Take care.

Hi PB.

The gathering didnt go as planned.   Ive lost self confidence. I think "friends" start to say things about me, but I dont care.

I'm really exhausted today.

Ill b ok even if every friend walks away from me, Human beings dont have the strength  to endure..

 

 

had a small argument today again, hes interfering in my life and have no support from anyone, .I'm sick of him

Hi Miko ,I wrote a very similar thing on my thread also .

I totally agree ,when it goes on this long we test the people around us ,I barely hung on to my partner yesterday and were I live ."you cant give me what I need she says " crushing blow to me .

We live in a very shallow/narrow minded world that was established long before even our parents were born .

Avoid people and triggers at all cost ,that's what I try to do .

Take care .

Hi PB,

thanks,

The discussion went so so,

I avoid  people and triggers as I can.

I've lost  weight the last 4 months,  I eat but but I don't know sth with the metabolism , I keep on losing weight and its affecting me.

 

Sleep hygiene is stable the last days, I sleep 5-5 1/2 hours.

 I been for some walks in quiet areas.

 

Im under stress. I know this month will go like this. I keep my healty nutrition.

but everyday sth new comes up  unplanned and stress me. today chatted with a friend to arrange  but didnt meet

 

I met a new doctor yesterday. I was skeptical at first.

 I mentioned stress and insomnia.

He prescribed   remeron a/d for the insomnia. I told  him I was on seroxat for 3years and was difficult to come off. He said  for the remeron at least 6months minimum.

He asked if I took benzodiazepine like zanax. I said yes. and had difficulty coming off.  He prescribed frisium.

and to cut the 1/4 olanzapine and go with remeron and the frisium

Anyone have any experience with remeron? Is ir easy to withdraw? I asked him for any sideeffects. Not like seroxat he said. He didnt mention anything about vit D or supplement

 said I'llsee. paid and left.

To be honest the actual meeting with the doc stressed me. I dont know why but I kinda   feel obliged to the meds or gonna be in trouble.

The more common name for Remeron is mirtazapine and we have a very large number of members struggling to get off of it.  It is very unpredictable and difficult to control during a taper, which has to be very long and slow.

 

Frisium is a new generation benzo and comes with all the usual problems.  It is highly addicting and reacts dangerously with alcohol.

 

Asking for clarification about what a drug is/does is acceptable, but asking for recommendations for additional drugs to take to alleviate WD symptoms and drug  side effects is against SA policy and is considered to be "drug shopping".  It appears like you're just looking for information ATM but it's a fine line between looking and shopping. Please be careful.


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.

Current dose 0.000mg 04-15-2017

So,  what happened yesterday when I was returning from the hairsaloon

I fell down yesterday,  a dog bite me on the leg,  I felt numbness  I lost balance it was a big hit  to my ego . A guy across the street saw what happened and he  gave antiseptic and ice for the knee.

 

not a happy memory but it was a lesson., had some time on my own to reevaluate things in my life.

 

 

Dog bite?

Was it severe?

Did you Wash with lot of running water?

Hope you took Antirabis injections too.


Cold turkeyed risperidone (1m.g)and trihexyphenidyl combination drug out of ignorance,In August 2016 after one month use.

Withdrawal symptoms settled at dreamful,disturbing sleep.

Thus introduced to olanzapine for sleep.Started using olanzapine out of ignorance.

Tapering olanzapine 10 m.g from February 2017.

May 2018 :Still suffering dreams,Still tapering olanzapine at 0.625.100ml water+2.5 mg olanzapine. June 2018 22.5ml=0.57mg.July 2018 20ml,August 2018-17.5ml,September 2018-15ml,October 2018 10 ml,December 2018 7 ml, BrassMonkey slide method so far at lower doses.2 nd December cold turkeyed , only to reach minure doses as reinstatement to cutshort endless tapering process.4rth December started 1ml.

Almost no symptoms and sleep is better,So started 0.5 ml from 17-12-2018.

"0"from31-12-18.Re birth would happen from 2020,as rejuvenation would take 2019.

Rico,

 

Have you completely tapered off risperdal? Do you think the seroxat helped you in the risperdal taper?

 

Thanks for answering my questions

 

 

Hi,  I wanted to answer your question , apologize for the delayed response, as it may not be of any help now, but may help others.

Seroxat did help in the risperdal taper. I completely tapered 10months after you asked me, so at that time was taking seroxat  and really helped take the edge off anxiety and risperdal  wd. Risperdal wasnt very difficult to come off but only if you eat well.

Guys I have an emergency, 10 days ago was at the wrong place at the wrong time.I'm at an internet cafe atm.I am in big trouble. After an argument with my father I took the car and  headed to my cousin. I parked the car  and was waiting inside. At the same time there was a break in at an near apartment the previous night and a neighbour called the police he thought I was a thief/burglar.I know it was a mistake to stay in the car sitting . Then the cops arrived  . That was it. 15 cops police cars and bikes arrived   and I got arrested and taken in.I got nervous . I got out of the car, reached my mobile at my back pocket to call a friend.The cops thought |I had a gun or sth and then they pointed a gun at me. Things got out of hand. It was dark night  I didn't see , and I was nervous , withdrawal from the meds etc. then they grabbed me 15 cops, I got very scared and started asking, are you drunk? you take drugs? you married? what were you doing in the car 23.00pm alone? I was helpless I said I was going to my cousin, they didn't believe me .then they searched the car tags, the car belonged to my father. searched trunk, find nothing. only my rc plane at the trunk, asked does it have a cam? I said yes.

 

After that i was taken in, inquisition, they asked questions I said I'm a mechanical engineer,they believed then they said if I called my father they would let me go. so I did. That was second mistake.

But my father at trhe police station started yelling at me and after that |I had a fight with him and left and went to my cousin. Next 7 days I got very stressed , the police noticed strange behaviour at me, I was at home 7 days I didnt get out , only a few times 2 -3 times. to get food etc. and th suspicious. That was it. I was very stressed out.  Next day  my father  was telling the police about me that I have no job, my gf was abroad .sdo they say what i was doing in  my life. I talked to him but he said he didnt say anything . I didmt believe. I saw in his mobile incoming calls from a person Nik general. Next day was hell. my behaviour changed and the police started tapping eavesdropping

 my mobile, my facebook messenger, viper, whatsup. everything, my parents phone, my home phone.I'm living a nightmare, , Next day I noticed new cars at my neibourhood , I was seeing different cars following where I go  what I do. I wen to uni to talk to my cousin and  a cab driver came with no passengers, summer, and asked where is the main building I told him back right and he continued straight and then he left out of the uni.  He was an undercover cop and followed me inside the uni premises which is a NO.  No police allowed.The cab driver was fake. My life is hell. They follow me where I go every day, I left the car and started going on foot, changed my habits and they made them suspicious n]because \i changed behaviour that I'm hiding, but I was doing it because I got scared  Today I took my car again and I went to the gym, for 1,5 hours, then I left i parked the car and was sitting and listening to music.

My parents are against me.  they talked to the police and the call me all the time to ask where I am to check if I'm telling the truth.The police know where I i live, I live above my parents apartment.My health is deteriorating from the stress. fatigue, sleep trouble. brain fog. I started anxiolitic benzo to sleep, I believe they have found out  a formal paper with a prognosis psychotic parano 3 years ago.and this is very very bad for me.

I have talked to my therapist and my 2 closest  friends and they are with me. one in the Uk and the other In Crete,

 

Also I did blood test and I haveα  tendency for hyperthyroism.

I need some advice plz. It took me 4 years to taper I survived 4 years hell and I live hell again.

@Miko789 

Please don't give up to them. They are mere people finding some reason based on suspicion which is somehow their job has made them to do so.

 

Its very likely that they don't understand wdls or any psyche drugs plus added suspicion.

 

So try to be calm, this phase with them will pass out.

 

Ask your cousin to help you out with going out with you... 

You can spend time outside at some mall .. eatery etc..  

this will help you with anxiety, time and with the police.

I started taking xanax, I take it for 8 days now. I had panic attack from stress on Friday( heart racing, sweating,couldnt sleep at night,worried about blood sugar , thought was going to die), was at the parking station and panic hit me.from accumulated stress ,I called my GP and went to see him, he said to take 1 in the morning(0,5mg) 1 at nigh(0,5mg)t, for 10 days and then 10 days tapering to 1/2 dose.Isnt that too much? Then after the panic attack next day I went to talk to him , he saw me I was cool and calm, I slept ok, but not rested, I told him its a benzodiazepine and needs tapering, its addictive, he said yes  its addictive  then he said to take it for 1 month more, wtf?

Ill go one more time to talk to him.then I plan to quit after a week after tapering

 

 

 I reinstated on 28/11 ½ drop paxil and on 8/12 I updose reinstatement to 1 drop

 

Are you still taking 1 drop of paxil? 

 

 You tapered paxil, then reinstated and I can't see anything else that says whether you are still taking it. If you have stopped it again, that would have worsened the withdrawal, then the xanax  would have upset your nervous system.  People are all seeing you in distress but they do not believe in withdrawal so they believe you are ill.  If you are still taking zyprexa it is very important that you keep taking it to avoid worsening your withdrawal.

 

 What happened to you must have been terrifying, and I understand why you are so frightened. The police saw that you were innocent and released you but it must have been very traumatic. Try to stay calm, if people are watching you they will soon see that you are someone who is just getting on with life.  You tend to worry about things that might happen. I do that too and have to stop myself from thinking that way or I would go crazy. Brassmonkey wrote this and it helped me a lot.

Neuro emotions can also be a problem in withdrawal.  Everything is intensified. Something that is simply irritating can be infuriating, then we feel bad because the cortisol is rushing aound the body.  We have to calm down and breathe, take a walk and breathe fresh air.  Find some woodland or a beach, I don't have a beach near here, but we do have trees which are really calming.

mammaP gives good advice, Miko. Please try to stay calm. You didn't do anything, you don't have to punish yourself. They will watch you for a while and then stop.

 

It seems the friction with your father is causing a great deal of distress for you. Can you sit down with him and ask him for his support in this difficult time? Is there a family counselor you can see who will talk with you and your family all together?

 

What drugs are you taking now, at what times, and what dosages?

Ah shucks thanks mikko your more than welcome.

Cut back stress,drama ,caffeine,sugar ,heavy meals before bed .get black out blinds,melatonin is switched on  when theres darkness ( chemical released to tell the brain to sleep) ,theres also supplements but I cant suggset them because I dont have experience  taking them.

The main problem is all the drama going on around you and cut all this back because its constantly playing out in your subconscious.you need to find a calming activitie for yourself .

I sent you a PM also .

Take care

Any supplements  tor sleep?

 

Hi,

I feel sorry for what you are feeling.

I wish you will find relief soon.

 

I have found Ayurvedic Jatamansi powder helpful for sleep. ( if you can get it over there). For me , its better than 10s of supplements that I bought by surfing internet.

Take a mix of 1/2 tsp of Ashwagandha + 1/4 tsp of Jatamansi (max 1/2 tsp) in 2-3 tsp of honey.  Mix completely and take it. Hope it will help.

 

Also, I have found that I have to cycle off this mix as it builds tolerance for me.

But again after few days of break, it works.

 


08/13 - 01/14
Olanzapine, petril MD (Clonazepam ), Dicorate ER (divalproex). Soza 10 (Zolpidem)

02/14 - 05/14

11/14 - 08/15

SA can not condone the use of this mixture of herbs to help with AD/WD induced insomnia or as an aid in tapering off of psych drugs.  Both of these supplements have been proved to greatly increase levels of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine in test subjects.  If used while taking any of the psych drugs we commonly work with here this could quickly lead to serotonin syndrome, which is very dangerous. As Bhasski mentioned they quickly build tolerance.  If used for an extended period of time they will quickly loose effectiveness but still require proper tapering to get off of.  For a healthy person, the occasional use for insomnia might be of benefit, but for people in AD/WD they should be avoided.


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.

Current dose 0.000mg 04-15-2017

Hello,

the misunderntanding stressed me and the following days acted compulsive. M y environment wasn't supportive, on the contrary critisiσed me and didnt believe what happened, This stressed me. father said that I had quit meds, but these 3 ½ years he didnt know what I went through difficult it was with tapering a/d and a/p. I

 

On Friday went to my brothers home and he yelled at me . I felt awful, I went to his home to rest but he yelled at me second time. I feel fatigue.

 

This week I was consistent, eating healthy, fixing my rc plane. also I started exercising again.

 

I find myself in distressfull situations with friends  and what I do is blame others for how I feel, and I can't feel good.

 

Activities that help me is fixing rc plane and exercising.

Meditation is helping to get through.

 

@mammaP ,  I'm feeling  better now.

Hello,

 

They continue watching me,  What I do? where to ask for help?, why they punish me..

my internet connection is compromised.

I believe they talk with my father

they watch where I go and send mere ppl and say bad things about me, how to counteract and  this and stay safe and focused to what  i currently do.

Yesterday I went to endokrinologist doc and  he said I have tendency to hyperthyroidism. from exam.

my head feels cinderblock

 v sad here.but I have dreams to go after and accomplish.

Did you take any of these drugs Miko?

 

Are you still taking 1.5 zyprexa?

 

 

 

 I reinstated on 28/11 ½ drop paxil and on 8/12 I updose reinstatement to 1 drop

 

Are you still taking 1 drop of paxil? 

 

 

Quote

You tapered paxil, then reinstated and I can't see anything else that says whether you are still taking it. If you have stopped it again, that would have worsened the withdrawal, then the xanax  would have upset your nervous system.  People are all seeing you in distress but they do not believe in withdrawal so they believe you are ill.  If you are still taking zyprexa it is very important that you keep taking it to avoid worsening your withdrawal.

 

I have stopped paxil. form 1/2 drop. from 12/17.

 What happened to you must have been terrifying, and I understand why you are so frightened. The police saw that you were innocent and released you but it must have been very traumatic. Try to stay calm, if people are watching you they will soon see that you are someone who is just getting on with life.  You tend to worry about things that might happen. I do that too and have to stop myself from thinking that way or I would go crazy. Brassmonkey wrote this and it helped me a lot.

Neuro emotions can also be a problem in withdrawal.  Everything is intensified. Something that is simply irritating can be infuriating, then we feel bad because the cortisol is rushing aound the body.  We have to calm down and breathe, take a walk and breathe fresh air.  Find some woodland or a beach, I don't have a beach near here, but we do have trees which are really calming.

Hi miko keep your head down and no drama ,they will get bored when they see theres nothing to be worried about ,your not a trouble maker ,your just a human being that has been made very ill by medication that its not even recognised by the wider public.

Stop playing up to the paranoia that we can easily create ourselves out of anxiety and worry .trust me ive created my own but learning not to listen to my rambling critic any more .

This is in no way a judgement of you of course ,you know me I love an analogy "don't make the cut worse than it has to be ".

Youl drive yourself mad .

Keep at your healthy habits ,that's all we can do my friend .

Take care and we always keep up the battle .

Hi PB, I know you my friend, I empathise with you, I'm physicall a lot weaker than before meds, I am tired, I've lost ground and muscle mass despite working out. I have joint pain.

 

I ended up in the psyward, The police came to my house and was taken to psyward, and was given 4 meds, aloperidon, stedon, invega, depakine. It was bad, they kept me 1 month, from 26Sept to 26Oct. They took my mobile and had no contact with my friends, no internet, I needed support, That was so bad , I got scared inside the psyward, this psychiatrist was awful, he labeled me.

 

I needed support, Only my parents and my brother, were coming to see me, against the his

that was their intention the last 3 months, I was being watched to get me into the psyward, Im disappointed and was in a funk.

To be labelled and put again on meds, my life had rewinded, and I'm back, or is my mind? after getting out , they were first calmer and said that to follow  instructions , then on Wednesday they start getting von my nerves.Went out to my girlfriend to chill out, had seen her for a while, but lately I found out shes having issues after losing her mother. She needs a doctor . I told her. and I dont know if I continue with her.

I have enough worries. myself and take care o myself cant support others.
