I am thinking that connecting our members geographically will enable

  • Face-to-face meetings or phone contacts for those of you who wish to meet
  • Support groups
  • Sharing information about doctors, clinics, compounding pharmacies, etc.
  • Organizing to educate physicians, hospitals, and university professors
  • Organizing to contact members of local and national government
  • Research by British researchers

Even if you don't wish to do any of the above, if you are in Great Britain, please check in here.

 

Please also click the Follow This Topic button at the top right so you will receive notices about others posting here.

 

AND -- if you've haven't introduced yourself to the rest of the community yet, please go to our Introductions and Updates forum and start a topic for yourself. You can post updates to your Intro topic to track your progress.

Hi, I would love to have a support group to go to.  Somewhere where people understand about antidepressant withdrawal.  Any chance of meeting up and getting our own group going.  I live in Essex.  I have only found one group for Benzos in Manchester.  I take Efexor XL.

I was looking through the list of doctors and found this, a doctor who is prepared to persuade her employers to create a discontinuation clinic if there are enough people.

"" I don't currently see adult patients, but I could do and it may be possible to persuade my employers to run a discontinuation clinic under my supervision if there was sufficient demand. Best wishes,

This is a step in the right direction. Thank you for highlighting this, mammaP. I will look into this further and contact her to register interest.

Hi Tilly / MammaP,

 

I'm close to you as I'm on the Nottingham border of Lincolnshire.

The doctor that MammaP recommends in Lincoln is of interest to me too.

 

I would very much like to contact him as I want to set up a support group in Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire area and I am doing some work for a mental health org in the area.

Could you PM me his contact MammaP?

 

Also Tilly, you might be interested in this organisation www.makingwaves.org who are based in Nottingham.  I'm meeting them in a few weeks, but found them supportive of change and well informed.

Hi Dan,

I'm gathering people together who have struggled with escitalopram / citalopram and putting together withdrawal stories for David Healy.

Would you be interested in sending me your experiences?

 

The symptoms which are of most interest are in the following groupings:

 

a) Paraesthesia - tingling, burning, numbness, pain

B) Cardiac disturbances - dizziness, syncope, irregular heartbeat, slow or quick pulse

c) Sensory disturbances - to sense of sight, hearing, touch, taste etc.

 

If you PM me I will give you an email address.

I'm in Lincolnshire btw.
