I think you need to let your doctor know what is going on with you first. Gail B Volunteer Mentor. Liked by Parus , lalyfa. With some of the dreadful reactions I have had to medications I mostly say no to drugs. The psychotropics turn me psycho. I read about addictions and have been through thus…I went off cold turkey with pain medication, antidepressants, anti psychotics, anti anxiety…I do not care to go through anything like that again.
If I can get something stronger than an OTC I only want a low dose and do not want to go through what I did in again. This is where I am currently. Maybe my pain is not as severe as pain is for others. I do know what withdrawal is like and…I have had a good life all in all. I endeavor to be content and learn what I can. I do know what does not work for me. Liked by Gail, Volunteer Mentor , jfsherley. However, if I find myself needing to go back on the meds I will taper off much slower when it comes time to quit them.
I will not get on my soapbox, but I would much prefer being addicted to marijuana as there have never been any scientific studies that prove a physical addiction to marijuana as opposed to opiates.
Maybe a psychological dependence, but two very different animals. Liked by Gail, Volunteer Mentor , lalyfa , becsbuddy. They also gave me a cannabinol patch to use at night fir the severe itch in my head from the shingles. Also a vape two puffs as needed for the itch break through which I have not tried yet.
I have been totally off the effexor and all anti-depressants for 2 weeks now. I realize most of this has to do with the withdrawal. I really want to see this through to find out if I can live without anti-depressants but at the same time I know it's very hard on my family.
I have another doctor appt beginning of April and she says that if I don't feel better by then I most likely will need to go back on an anti-depressant. For the most part I agree with her. My hopes of proving her wrong as getting slim however. I'd like to know how long it took some of you who have withdrawn from anti-depressants to feel somewhat 'normal' or you knew you had to go back on them? I guess I'm asking if another month is a good amount of time for me to determine what I should do.
In some ways I feel like I should start on them again now but I'm not going there yet? BTW, I am in no way feeling suicidal. Mornings seem to be my worst time and by early evenings I feel somewhat better — is this strange too? I haven't tried the CBD living water yet but did find a place near me to get it. Just havent had the time to get there. I also have the Ativan which I take one night to help with sleep.
I'm trying not to take it unless really necessary. Tomorrow I have a huge even that my husband and I are in charge of so I'm planning to take an Ativan in the morning to get me through the day without falling apart crying scene in front of everyone or yelling at them: Thanks for all your input!!
Liked by Gail, Volunteer Mentor , danalee5. The meds were wrong for me and the withdrawal was severe and I rarely slept, had RLS, neuropathy and cranky beyond words. Be sure to follow doctor's advice. I did not have a doctor at the time and would not go to the ER knowing it would have resulted in more abuse. Not an intelligent thing to do and not sorry I made the choice even though the experience was horrific and would not reccomend anyone go this route.
As to how long the withdrawal lasts the best thing is to discuss this with a pharmacist as this is where their training is and they understand much better and be of help. Wishing you the best. Liked by Gail, Volunteer Mentor , kygirl25 , lalyfa. Hopefully not more than a week or two off the Effexor but I don't know what else you're getting off.
Best to you, may you feel well soon. Glad you're off that stuff and sorry to hear about the hell of cold turkey on that stuff. I've had a taste of that horror missing doses of a benzo, clonazepam, and now tapering slowly over 5 months. The other things — weed psychological addiction, sugar, caffeine, gonna white knuckle the weed as I'm out soon and saving to take the bar exam. I'm going to try using CBD oil as I heard it's effective at reducing anxiety, lifting mood, and so on.
Thank you for sharing and wishing you, too, and us all, good health and peace. Will ask my pharmacist about expected withdrawal. Liked by Gail, Volunteer Mentor , Parus. I never thought to check with my pharmacist but it sounds like a wise suggestion! Been on CBD oil for 7 days seems to help some but I have break through depression like today which is causing crying and nausea, have my self wrapped up in blankets fighting all this crap which has been caused from coming off Lyrica.
