Pages: 1 Showing 1 - 20 of 27 for quitting ssri. (0.004 seconds)


... You wont have any issues with stopping dead after just 4 days If you wanted to keep taking an SSRI, you could try taking 5mg per day for 2 weeks, then moving up to 10mg per day, this attenuates a lot of the start up side effects. An alternative drug is mirtazepaine, or Remeron, its an antidepressant that lacks the SSRI's side effects, and which is very effective for... (1 replies)
... My head is still fuzzy and cloudy feelin. Im think about just not takin any SSRI anymore. I think I can do without. I know quitting cold turkey isnt good but its already been 5 days i can probably stick it out until everything wears off. ... (5 replies)
... panic attacks. I have had good experience with off and on use of xanax to stop panic in its tracks, and thought I'd try an SSRI to see if that would help on a long term basis. My Dr. prescribed me Celexa 10mg, which I have taken for the past four days. ... (1 replies)

... Tapering off, weaning is better than quitting cold turkey. You are having withdrawals now, abrupt cessation can cause rebound panic. ... (5 replies)
... While everyone reacts differently to different meds, all the SSRIs and related meds (SNRIs, etc.) have a period of about a month where anxiety symptoms can be exacerbated AND side effects (if any) are usually more pronounced during the first month. You may have a better experience on a different med, you may not. I've tried many, and I usually had at least some jitteriness in... (3 replies)
... Some doctors prescribe Prozac to help with SSRI withdrawal, believe it or not. ... (19 replies)
... I dont' want to discourage you but I feel I need to be honest about what this drug has done to myself and others I know who've taken it. I took Paxil for 4 years and gained way way too much weight and it was a monster to come off. Even weened off it for weeks and it didn't help. I've heard and seen others on Paxil gain weight. Many get that bloated look in their face, I... (10 replies)
... Well they have very similar tolerances, and benzos DO stop working after a while. Maybe you just been doing something else to keep your anxiety down you just don't know what it is, and believe me you don't wanna be on them forever, but once you stop you'll know what the withdrawal effects are like....even if you ween yourself off them for a while you'll still feel like crap....

... These are not true statements for everyone. I personally had no problem quitting alcohol and Benzo's do not have the same tolerance building problem that alcohol does. ... (8 replies)
... and the doc prescribed valium but I am a recovering addict, so no go! That was 8 years ago. I had many more fullblown attacks and eventually got treated with an SSRI cocktail successfully. ... (3 replies)

New and question
Mar 31, 2008
... Doctors shouldn't be afraid to prescribe medications that they feel are appropriate. Unless you're giving your doc reason to be suspicious and not prescribe you anymore Xanax, it shouldn't be a problem, and if it is, just find a new doc. Although, Xanax isn't really a long term solution, but I'd prefer to just stay on Xanax long term than on any other benzo, because it's a... (3 replies)
... Just some advice. SSRI's and antidepressants are not what you need. What has probably been helping you is the Ativan. The Benzo's quench panic almost entirely. Benzos are psychiatry's red headed step child. The problem is, it can and has been taken for recreational purposes and therefore has a nasty stigma associated with it. That it is addictive, and causes seizures and... (3 replies)
... rking through the health anxiety, and I don't think you need to put more strain on yourself like going through nicotine withdrawal. If you're really committed to quitting smoking and you don't want to start again, try the patch or gum or one of the other smoking cessation aides. ... (1 replies)
... Hey missyou. Have you had any prior experience with SSRIs or any drug that acts on serotonin (particularly the 5-HT2A receptor)? Maybe drugs like methylone or MDMA? In my experience, drugs that affect that serotonin receptor play a very significant role on my anxiety: Reducing it almost completely. I haven't tried Effexor myself (though I just issued a script for it last... (7 replies)
... meds, messes with your metabolism. So I weaned myself off of it in about a week. Yea, a bit too soon, I guess, but I did it that way. I didn't tell the dr. about quitting it because he was not sympathetic with me in the office that one day, about the weight gain. He was like, "So what if you do gain some weight? ... (5 replies)
Stopping zoloft
Sep 24, 2008
... I think it is great that you are going to try to manage your anxiety on your own. However you asked for advice, so I'll give you my two cents with regards to quitting zoloft. ... (15 replies)
... I wanted to give everyone a heads up on some experiences I have had taking anti-depressants. I have taken anti-depressants for the past 10 years. I was off of them about a year and then restarted Paxil which I am tapering off. I believed the "pushers" of the meds that I had a chemical imbalance. That it was genetic. So I popped them for many years. In some ways it did... (8 replies)
... When in fact I found for myself that it is kind of like loosing weight or quitting smoking YOU have to want it to work or it might not. It didn't for me at least, until I changed doc's and my attitude. ... (9 replies)
... Hi there, I haven't posted here in a while :wave: In talking with my therapist, we realized that I NEVER had anxiety problems until I started having irregular heartbeats & chest pains last summer. They came out of the blue (after quitting smoking) and never went away. I have them EVERY day of my life. The arrythmia shows up on EKG, so it's not imagined. I've had... (5 replies)
