... I don't think there are any long-term effects of discontinuing SSRi's, except maybe the brain's serotonin system would need a period of time to recover itself, so I suppose some depression could result for a period.

... Hey Chantel, Yes, not only did he want me to continue, but he tried to up my double my dose ....I was already taking 2 mgs.Ativan! That equals around 20 mgs. Valium! You see, I was taking it and because of tolerance, it didn't work well...and it wore off faster.

... Hi! I am coming off meds (or trying to) after almost 2 years. I "slowly" weaned off Lexapro...still on Wellbutrin, and having a hell of a time for no reason that I can discern. I'd really like to find someone who might be able to help. (14 replies)
... A think his rule of thumb should be "don't believe everything you read online", not "never believe anything" because there is alot of accurate, good information out there, believe me. I had excellent, board certified doctors who didn't have a clue about my case. I found out in my case, tolerance, tolerance withdrawals and dependancy of Ativan was the problem. Because of...

... If you are the first person to reply to a thread there is no need to quote the post. Using the quote function when it's not needed causes threads to become pages longer than they need to be which in turn slows down the server. (3 replies)
... Yeh, they claim the hypomania only happens if a person is bi-polar or if the medication "unmasks" a bi-polar condition, as if a person could actually have bi-polar for years and not have any manic symptoms intil they take the antidepressant. Right. That's like saying if you have diabetes you may not have symptoms intil you take a certain drug, or cancer will just lie around... (14 replies)

As the new pathways grow, they grow in the 'right' way, making you better. That's why it takes six months, or a year in my case, to get off of it. That was the longest year of my life, and it didn't end... (14 replies)
... Jennita, OMG girl! I cannot believe he did that to you. He wanted to keep you on Ativan? That is truly amazing. Some doctors seem like they just want to cover the illness up and not do anything about it. I am the kind of person that doesn't give up, so if this psych doc isn't any good....then I will keep trying until I find a good one. If I have to drive 100 miles, I will.... (14 replies)
... I don't think psych docs are any better; while in Ativan tolerance withdrawals(symptoms while still on the med; med stops working at all), I was seeing one, and he didn't seem to think anything was wrong (except with me that is!). He was all set to keep me on Ativan for life, even with the problems I was having. In fact, he also wanted to add Luvox.....knowing I already... (14 replies)
