Hello fellow Aussies,

 

I just thought I'd check in here and say hello! I'm in Sydney person and at the moment I'm taping off zyprexa. This is one horrible drug and has cause a lot of problems, but I'm hoping to be off by late January. Then I'll think about coming off Effexor. Can't wait to be drug free!

 

There is some great information on the site. I'm so glad I found it.

 

Lucy


Citalopram 40gms - July 2016 (replaced by Effexor)
Valium and tamazapan - July 2016 -prn - (replaced by zyprexa for insomnia)
Zyprexa - since August 2016
Effexor 225mgs - since August 2016
Doses given and then tapering off zyprexa -
5mgs 2weeks/7.5mgs 2weeks/10mgs 2weeks/7.5mgs 3weeks/5mgs 2weeks/ 1.25mgs 3days/0mgs 3days (self managed after advice from psychologists -reinstated after withdrawal symptoms) /2.5mgs 3 weeks/ 1.87 2 weeks/1.25 2 weeks from 22 Nov - 6 Dec/ currently on .625

Started Lexapro 04, have been mostly on med combinations since for 12 years.
May 2015 - zeldox 80 - 100mg, fluvoxamine 200mg, dexamphetamine 10mg
Lorazepam and clonazepam on and off for over a decade. Heavily sedated with antipsychotics - mostly Zyprexa and seroquel. Many hospitalisations. Many types of therapy, last being 7 years of psychodynamic that only figured out my pain was real.
Pain meds - Lyrica 150mg palexia 100mg - discontinued eary 2016
Done ok so far but cant drop the last antidepressant without physical illness.

Hey Rico, Mitch from the Central Coast here! (Around an hours drive north)

How are you feeling today?

Dr Yolande Lucire may be able to help you depending on where you're at with things (her office is in edgecliffe). I've also just found an awesome expert on healing who's near Wyee (which may be a bit out of your way, but definitely had to mention him). Ron Fenwick - the eyes never lie; search youtube for his video.

Happy to help however I can - I'm now 7 months clean from forced Abilify injections.

@Buffy, I was never aware how bad it really is 'till I fell into it .. By then it was already too late :(

Forced drugging history:

  • Unknown cocktail during my 5 week hospital party.
  • April, 2015 - February, 2016: 400mg Injection of Abilify (Aripiprazole) monthly.
  • March, 2016 Injection: 300mg Abilify (Aripiprazole).
  • April, 2016 Injection: 200mg Abilify (Aripiprazole).
  • 2nd May, 2016 Injection: 200mg Abilify (Aripiprazole) - FINAL Injection!
  • Discharged from NSW Community Treatment Order days later in May, 2016; end to my forced drugging.

Voluntary drugging history:

  • NIL (Last updated 10/07/2016)

Hi Mitch and Buffy!

The Australian health system is a joke. We have so many laws in Australia to protect citizens but mental health patients are treated like crap. I've been to a few public psych wards where doctors and nurses break the law all the time. It is disgusting what goes on in there. They truly believe that "medication" helps people, but the same patients are in and out all the time. Most of the public hospitals too are littered with inadequately trained doctors from overseas. But then again, an adequately trained psychiatrist would never work in places like that but be helping people come off drugs and help them get their lives back.

Hi everyone. I'm based in Melbourne but travel between Syd/Melb. Interested if there's a meetup as I have felt very alone in this for a long time and don't know how to constructively process this anger and grief?? I don't get support from family/friends and don't trust health professionals.

Hi to all,

 

Sydney-sider here whose wife is currently on Pristiq (50 mg) after Eleva (100 mg) for postnatal depression, but based on reading around here and other places, I think it is responsible for the breakdown of my marriage and her sudden behavioural/mood/thought changes.

 

I would love to hear if anyone in Oz has had similar experiences, and knows anywhere that can help or give good advice regarding this.

 

Many thanks,

Dawood


My wife's medication:

-----------------------------

 

Eleva (Zoloft) 50 mg:                     July-December 2015 (approx)

Eleva (Zoloft) 100 mg:                   January-July 2016 (approx)

Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50 mg:  July 2016 until now

You're not responsible for what may have happened whilst under the influence of the medication... going to a doctor or counsellor about anxiety/depression and wanting to get better is a noble thing.

The effects these can have on people - and everyone seems to be hit differently even though common threads - can be disastrous.

I have been trying to keep things together and hold ontothe roller coaster for the ladt 6 months. Still not giving up! But I hope there's no lasting effects once my wife has been totally off them for a while.

Wishing you all the very best,

Hi everyone, I'm in Australia - in the Northern Territory.  We have a very small community of doctors who change regularly or fly-in-out, so no real continuity or relationships are built.  Most GP's rely on the 'word' and 'opinion' of specialists, so are reluctant to supervise a taper plan to wean off Cymbalta.  They're more than happy to continue to prescribe it though - no questions asked. 


History - Female, now 47 with 28 years of taking antidepressants daily from age 19.
1988 - severe depression, anxiety and agoraphobia Prothiaden (Dothiapen) Tricyclic antidepressants.
1989
- Diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy (after EEGs). P
rescribed Tegretol (Carbamazepine) for Complex Partial Seizures
1995
- changed antidepressant to a newer drug - Zoloft 50mg then up to 100mg

2006
- Tegretol caused me to be total zombie. Weaned for 3 months then went on to Keppra 500mg daily (Levitaceram)

2010
- diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Prescribed Methotrexate 20mg weekly and changed from Zoloft to Cymbalta (for depression / FM)

2014
- weaned myself off Methotrexate due to stable condition and diet change decreasing inflammation
2016
- started taper off Cymbalta 1 Dec 2016, dropping 5% each fortnight via bead counting. Liquid fish oil daily, Magnesium daily, plus very clean gluten free, paleo diet. Daily exercise and 15 minutes meditation.

I just signed the pettion on Change.org.
I have to say that I did not have a positive experience with Tony Nikolic or Drayton Sher Lawyers.
After they sent me a notice to send them a $500 donation, (which I did not), I have never heard from them again.
I called 2 or 3 times in 2015, they never got back to me. I found them very unprofessional. I hope that everyone else has better luck with it.

DRUG HISTORY:

 

November 2013- Zoloft, ( Bad reaction).

January 2014 - March 2014 Seroquel.( Quit Cold Turkey).

January2014- Mirtazapine, I was taking 15mg at one stage, reduced to 7.5mg, Pgad reactions to Mirtazapine. Doctor kept increasing it to 37.5mg, until July 2014. No improvement, experiencing panic attacks, on 37.5 mg. I had enough by October 2014. Began tapering.

October 2014- Started tapering Mirtazapine from 37.5mg.

September 2015- Down to 4mg of Mirtazapine. Crashed.

September 16th- Up dosed to 5mg. Held this dose for almost 5 months. Stabilised.

February 2016- Began tapering again. From 5mg to 4.5mg of Mirtazapine. (Rocking the boat, again)! Lol. :(

I had the exact same experience. I always thought this was just for Aropax. A class action alone against GSK alone would be monumental. Red flags began when they said they also wanted to go after Pfizer and Eli Lily. So, an obscure law firm no one's heard of is going to bring a lawsuit against multiple giants simultaneously, when just one would be landmark in Aus.

A pipe dream at best. The communication was poor, and after they're request for $500 donations went unanswered, so to did their meagre communication halt.

Hi Berry Hamburger,

Every other lawyer I spoke to never asked for a donation. Slater and Gordon are very professional. I was told that it is hard to sue the doctor in question if he/she was not aware of the possible side effects an individual might experience as a result of taking Antidepressants. I got the same response from few others. They never asked me to make any payments.
Apparently doctors do not have to disclose every single side effect that you might experience from an antidepressant. The law in Victoria protects the doctors and patients suffer as a result. That makes me really angry!
It is obvious that Tony and the mob don't have the funds to take on these pharmaceutical giants. Very obscure indeed.

November 2013- Zoloft, ( Bad reaction).

January 2014 - March 2014 Seroquel.( Quit Cold Turkey).
