Glad you managed a walk Jay, you really are doing great you know. Walking is the best exercise there is especially if you can walk in the woods or park, or on a beach.  :)

See how to create a signature here http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/12364-please-put-your-withdrawal-history-in-your-signature/

 

Many drugs for many years, prescribed diazepam first 1973, took occasionally. 3 or 4 tricyclics  for short periods.

1993 had a breakdown leading to 10 years of drug experiments with all classes of psych drugs.

2002  effexor. 

Tapered by counting beads from March 2012 to March 2013, ending with 5 beads.

Withdrawal April 2013 . Reinstated 5 beads reduced to 4 beads May 2013

Restarted taper  Nov 2013  

OFF EFFEXOR Feb 2015    :D 

 

Also tapered atenolol and omeprazole Dec 2013 - May 2014

 

Tapering tramadol, Feb 2015 100mg , March 2015 50mg -hold- Feb2016 46mg  March 8 2016 45 April 44mg  May 11  43mg June 14 42mg

Taking fish oil, magnesium, pro biotic.

 

My story http://survivinganti...king-in/page-33

 

Lesson learned, slow down taper at lower doses. Taper no more than 10% of CURRENT dose if possible

 

Following every sunset is a brand new day

Out for a cup of tea, eyeing some girls wish my libido was here, it is mentally, trying to stave off a neuro headache, still better than staying at home, just realized I am only on week 6 ad free, **** scared off course for when my faculties come back. And tired.

Another great day in the great lobotomy of my head and with pains and aches ravaging my head, my brain and my poor mind. Still I managed to go for a walk and have a cup of tea for half an hour although that was a dreadful experience, well both were. I feel like a walking chemical ******* factory.
