Anybody out there today?
Another really bad day. The feelings of worthlessness or just overwhelming.

What do you do when your support team starts to break down.? You can feel them at their wits end, when they revert to the "tough love" and that just seems to make you feel worse .

Would love to hear some words of encouragement! This is just all so hard

2001-Started Effexor XR (15 Years on Drug)

April 1, 2016- 150 mg Effexor XR discontinued 

Started with 150 Mg-Dropped to 75 Mg after 3 weeks I then dropped to 37.5 Mg,4 weeks later I dropped off the medicine entirely.

Did not find out about weaning until too late. (This was the protocol from my general practitioner)

Symptoms of withdrawal are so severe I tried to reinstate Prozac, 9 months after discontinuing Effexor XR

February 15th, 2017-Started Prozac 10mg 

February 22, 2017 -upped to 20mg one week later (no relief) 

Symptoms of Serotonin Syndrome - (ALL symptoms got worse-OCD, Anxiety, Depression)

March 1st, 2017-Discontinued Prozac (Psychiatrist wanted to increase dose to 40 mg)

I love your profile  picture ,pretty much some's up my head after waking from a nap it took an hour to dissipate to just a normal head  ache .we can never ever give up or else we will miss out on the happiness and joy that will come our way some day .

we never stop learning no body  is above that .

I totally feel your agony .  

I am by no means a professional but always try to work out decisions about your body when its possible .

take care

Hey, Looking4peace and whoever else might be concerned, feel free to contact me if you want to talk. I actually have a master in psychology (that's far less helpful than one might think, but hey) and I suffer from SSRI withdrawal problems as well.
