Hello everyone,

 

After a year on different drugs, I finally tapered and stopped all of them

 

now 2 months off what bothers me is a feeling very low mood and and depressed most of the time continious sighs during the day

 

a feeling on anxiety in some cases panicking expecially when i m not careful as to what i eat 

 

tinnitus

 

very exhausted after exercise

 

are those withdrawal symptoms or will they last forever? anyone know?

 

thanks for help

I also have a sense of inner restlessness. Could it be akathisia caused by all the drugs I used ?

Yes it could be, unfortunately. How are you feeling now?


Prozac 20mg for 6 months, 15mg for 2 months, 10mg for 10 months

Felt akathisa in late November.

No prozac at all since January 5, 2017

No withdrawal symptoms. Only felt akathisia which I felt on the medication. 

Only tapering was 10mg every other day for a week

January 2017 Clonazepam .25mg morning and evening

February 2017 Clonazepam .5mg morning and evening (for a week) then .5mg morning and .25mg evening for about a month. Came down to .25mg morning and evening. 

May 1, 2017 Clonazepam .25mg morning and .125mg evening. 

May 20, 2017 Clonazepam .25mg morning and .0625 evening. 

Still persistent akathisia
