I could really use the support of someone who is going through SSRI withdrawal or has recently. After years of being on SSRIs my doctor is afraid Zoloft started worsening things and wants to try Lamictal. I am going through the worst withdrawals ever. Can hardly leave the house at day 5. To top it off the Lamictal is making me pretty sick. I'm obviously highly sensitive. Has anyone else had this experience?

My doctor prescribed me to take Xanax 0,5 mg as needed for bad panic attacks.

The thing is that I've been having bad panic attacks almost every night.
My bottle consists of 30 pills and I still have a lot left.
I don't take it everyday, only when really needed. So more like every other day?
I didn't take it last night and I felt like I couldn't sleep and I feel more anxious.
Is this a Xanax withdrawal or me just being anxious? (I am nervous about an upcoming appointment)
I just wanted to know if 0.5 Xanax is enough to become dependent on it and suffer bad withdrawals like seizures or something.
I only take it once a day and it's at night only. I never abused it
I've been smoking for about a year and a half on and off but more on then off. All summer long all day every day, every morning all day, and even before i went to bed. It's been about 2 days since i stopped and i wake up every morning a nervous wreck and eventually end up puking. I'm not gonna lie i loved being high, but i lost my dad a couple years ago and i think its possible sub-consciously that i smoked to forget about my issues. I refuse to start smoking again i'm avoiding everyone that does. But im in community college right now so puking really *** my day up, my appetite is in the *****, i get depressed i don't feel like doing **** how long is this supposed to last ?

I too have been taking Gabapentin for Femoral nerve damage for about 2 weeks...300mg/3times a day. I went out of town recently and skipped a couple doses by accident. When I realized it I took my next dose. For two days I experienced nausea, terrible anxiety attacks, and now my pain is worse.

I have been on a rollercoaster ride for months now trying to figure out this anxiety i've been dealing with. So i'm going to share the whole thing. For years i've been a constant drug user started with intense drinking to mdma and LSD every weekend then to uppers (Adderall and Dex) which was a daily bases for almost a year then pain pills to the point where i couldn't take them they made me unhappy and agro. Around the end of my get F***ed up days i was taking mad amounts of E and mushrooms which when it came to frying i was A OK on never had a bad time till one day. At the time i thought i was having a bad trip but now i think it was an anxiety attack. After that night when i tried to fry even if i was happy to and totally down i would have the worst panic attack so i quit taking psychedelics then stopped MDMA cause i always had an attack every time i used anything besides marijuana and occasional drinking and felt just fine (btw i was and still am a constant weed smoker) in november i went to portland and had a 3 day anxiety attack very random i went to the doctors when i got back he said besides some slight thyroid imbalance be has no idea why im anxious. I have been taking Paxil and Klonopin since November and at first it helped i felt i had a bit more control then it got worse again i've been dealing with fainting and awful morning anxiety and my doc keeps upping the dose but i'm still waking up panicked and idk why. Ppl have brought this up to me but i doubt a lot of bad things they say about marijuana but i'm starting to wonder. Could marijuana interfere with my medication prevent me from feeling better or even feed my anxiety??

This year, I started to smoke marijuana. I've smoked it a few times until three days ago. I've smoked too much of it and got a horrible panic attack. I've been sitting on the floor more than two hours thinking I'm going to die. The whole world was rotating and twirling around me and my heart was beating so fast that I thought I have a heart attack. I took a deep breath and told myself everything's gonna be alright. My friend told me: Stay calm, it's just a temporary effect of a drug. It's not dying.

Ok, I've survived. But on the next day, I've got anxiety attack three times. I'm 18 and I've never had any anxiety in my life. But marijuana teached me. Last three days, I've had 7 anxiety attacks. My anxiety attack consists of headache and feeling powerless and crazy.
I want to know just one thing. Are those anxiety attacks going to stop? Are they here because of THC still being in my body? Or am I going to experience them for the rest of my life?
Hey everyone, for those of you have seen my last questions that I've been suffering from anxiety for about 7-8 weeks now, it all stemmed from me thinking I was having a heart attack but after many tests, I was ok, but also at the same time I stopped smoking weed cold turkey, just wondering if anxiety could be one of the side effects, I wasn't a heavy smoker but smoke for about 21yrs until about 7-8 weeks ago,

I have a script for both and have been on both for many years. Some dr.s say it does, some say it doesn't. I'm confused and scared. I would like to know what caused it and no one will give me a straight answer, or show me studies to prove the argument. Please help.

I'm 19 years old and began smoking weed back when I was 16. It all started for fun and the first 2 years of the weed use were pretty normal, you know smoking a few times per month but no dependency or any abuse from the drug. Within time I began smoking more and more until I got to the point of smoking every single day on every single occasion. I began abusing of weed back in October 2012 and kept increasing my drug usage within time. I smoked every single day.. From monday to thursday I would usually smoke every night and on weekends I would smoke all day long. I kept this habit for around 6 months. (Some days I would smoke in the morning and all day long). Anyway, I began feeling paranoid on my last months of using weed. It all changed back in June. I was in the car on a long road trip together with my brother and my mom. My mom was driving and I was not high at all.. I had smoked a little in the morning from that day but nothing to worry about. Anyway, when we were traveling in the car, I began feeling pretty scared about a thought that came in to mind. The thought was about me punching my mom, although I love my mom with my entire life and would never do anything bad to her. I didn't know what a panic attack was at all, I didn't know what the symptoms of anxiety were and didn't know what the hell was happening to me. Anyway, I began to feel very very scared. We got to the hotel and I tried to forget about that scary thought my smoking later on that day. On the next day, the thought was still in my mind and I kept fighting with it until I researched and knew I suffered from a panic attack. I never in life had experienced anything similar to it and never had any type of anxiety issues. Since that experience, I decided to quit smoking pot so I did cold turkey. I also quit smoking cigarette and reducing my alcohol usage. Later on, I began experiencing the withdrawal symptoms. Extreme anxiety, panic attacks every day, and began to feel weird around my parents since I got that scary thought. I coped with it and the symptoms reduce their intensity one month after. I was feeling pretty good a month ago, coping with a little anxiety but everything seemed ok. But two weeks ago my anxiety was raised and worsened again. Now I'm feeling very scared because I'm not sure if I'm still experiencing withdrawals or if I really developed and anxiety disorder because of my weed use abuse. I get anxious every time I remind myself that I'm anxious, I'm scared of feeling this way my entire life and scared of thinking I screwed my life up. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this and cured from it????? Was my anxiety caused by my drug abuse or am I only experiencing withdrawals? Any recommendations? I pray everyday and try to keep myself positive every day. I'm a normal guy.. Some days I feel well but some days are the hell to me. I don't have social anxiety and I keep living my normal life.

I am 19 years old and have been smoking marijuana for a year. I have now taken a break from smoking weed for the past 2 weeks and a month ago I had a severe panic attack. I am still somewhat feeling the effects of depersonalisation but they were much more severe a few weeks ago and I have a doctors appointment on the 25th of April. I have never felt panic in my life but on Wednesday over a month ago. I have always felt great when I smoked weed but for some reason this time I felt awful. I had woke up on a March break morning around 11 am and I smoked this good weed that I had never tried before. I always smoke out of bongs and I had smoked right when I woke up so I probably was dehydrated and my blood sugar was low. I know weed lowers blood sugar and it was on an empty stomach. It took about ten minutes and eventually I had tunnel vision, I couldn't look at my tv because the screen was too bright, felt like a mini seizure, heart was racing, sweating, felt like I was choking and I was going to have a heart attack. I realize that you cannot die from a panic attack but it was very uncomfortable. The weird thing is that I have never felt panic at all after smoking weed. I smoked half a bowl of this good weed I had never tried and shortly after I smoked this good regular weed that I am used to. I went to ER and took some tests but I eventually left as I did not want to wait there all day. The first week back to school was frightening but now a month later, school is almost over and I am starting to feel somewhat normal. Do you think this will just take time for me to completely get over? I have been feeling depersonalisation because things didn't seem real and everything seemed like a dream. I would have to touch myself to see if I was real it seemed and I had bad anxiety ever since. I feel almost normal now but I am wondering if I just need to wait for the weed to get out of my system in order for me to feel normal again. I smoked weed about a week ago and ever since I think I should quit until I figure out my personal life. I have always felt depression even before I started smoking weed. Growing up as a child my mom was an alcoholic and she would give me suicide notes, my brother died when I was 13 and I was attacked by random people near my street a couple years ago which caused some paranoia and increased anxiety about walking outside at night. It's not like weed caused this, I think that it brought out the real me, it brought out my actual problems and I think the herb is just telling me to fix my issues that I have been having for so long. It's been just over a month and I am starting to feel much better. For the longest time my subconscious mind was paying attention to every breath which was hard and annoying to sleep. I still somewhat feel like this but I am starting to accept it and not care. I have a driving test in a couple weeks and I am scared to be honest. The weird thing is, I have always been scared to do new things like driving or getting a job. Even when I was a kid I was afraid to talk to girls, I know this may sound like I am crazy. I have gotten over the fears of talking to girls now though because I am 19 and not 14 any more. I am hoping to see a psychologist shortly after my doctors appointment which I am hoping to get some clarification and advice to fix my issues. I was also very bullied as a child during elementary school because I was overweight which I think is the reason why I lost a lot of weight and I am now working out daily, mainly running. But, I am very self concious about my body now, I always look in the mirror at my body because I still worry about looking fat and what others think of me. I have always cared about what others think of me which I hate. I think I am getting better at thinking positive now. Another thing is, even before I started smoking weed, I was a very stressed person from school and my personal life. I get in fights with my mom and it stresses me out. She is no longer an alcoholic but it really bothers me even if she has one drink. What I think is weed is not bad for you and cannot harm in very many ways. It can trigger certain things as it had happened to me, but it is physically impossible to die from marijuana. I have smoked weed after my attack and I was fine for the most part. All marijuana does is relax you and increase the serotonin in your brain. It gives you the ability to think more outside the box and it makes you focus on things more which can create a paranoia. Anxiety and depersonalization are in your head. If you think negatively you will react negatively. I want to become a psychologist and I am going to university next year so I know a lot about the mind. I am just wondering if I will get over it and most people say it takes time which I agree with. I will not permanently stop smoking weed but I will definitely cut back drastically.

Ok so I was taking oxycodone painkillers for about 1 1/2 years for my back issues. 10 mg pills and I was only taking anywhere from 1 to 1 and a 1/2 a day. Never exceeded that. However I started getting nervous that long term probably isn't good on my stomach. So I lowered my dosage last week to 3/4 of a pill for about 5 days then I quit last Friday.

That's where the problems started. First 40 hours I felt like I had a strange low grade current running through my arms/legs. Not painful more like annoying. Almost like I just had to twitch or move my arms. That finally wore off and now I feel absolutely terrible. NO energy, NO desire to move, headaches for 3 days straight, I just feel like rolling in a ball and dying. And to top it off I awoke last night at 2AM and couldn't fall back asleep. So my long and drawn out question is...................Is this truly all from the withdrawals? I mean I am just having a hard time believing that this stems from taking pretty much 1 lousy pill a day. I understand 1 1/2 years is a long time, but 1 pill a day?
And then of course it leads me to my next question......How long is this going to legitimately last? I have been soooo tempted to just take a pill and get the pain over with but I really need to stay off of these.
Loperamide HCI is the best. It's an opiate. Just about all Anti-Diarrheal remedies over the counter have this in it. I used to suffer from opiate withdrawals when my perscription oxycodone was stolen from my locker at work. The withdrawals almost put me in the hospital. I researched the remedies in my medicine chest and came across an Anti-Diarrheal remedy with Loperamide in it; and I later discovered that this was an opiate upon thorough research----that's why it works. I took 20 of the 2mg pills and within one hour my withdrawal symptoms were completely gone. COMPLETELY gone! Since I was taking 40 mg of oxycodone I figured I'd match the dosage to the Loperamide and it worked. Nothing less than 20 pills of Loperamide did the job. I had to take at least 20----remember that----Depending on the dosage you were taking.

A lot of people have been trying this and it has helped them too. I wash the Loperamide pills down with milk to coat my stomach. I did get an upset stomach on it before, until I used milk. I'd like to also add that the Loperamide is NOT addictive either. You will not get HIGH from it so don't waste your time abusing it because nothing will make it work like that. And I don't want to read or hear about Loperamide being pulled from over the counter because someone died abusing it to try to get high.
I've been to Detox clinics in the past and nothing works like the Loperamide. Thanks to Loperamide I will never end up in Detox again. And one last thing... Loperamide kicked my opiate addiction for good. FANTASTIC! Stay away from Suboxone or Methadone because they are addictive. Oh, and if you are wondering if I'm still on the Loperamide? I'm not.
I've noticed the Loperamide (Anti-Diarrheal) products sold in Sam's and Costco for around $5 for 350 caplets. Way worth the price. I've also been told not to worry about side effects from Loperamide because you won't be on it too long and secondly, as far as it works for diarrhea, one 2mg pill works just like taking 20 pills. It won't make you anymore constipated. These prescribed pain pills that doctors give you will make you constipated too, and they contain too much Tylenol (acetaminophen) that's bad stuff. I'm glad there is something out there I can share with you that's affordable and will stop opiate withdrawals. Maybe some wizard will one day invent something that will give us that euphoric feeling back without withdrawals or side effects, but until then, get off the opiates. Good luck to you!
I have been taking Xanax 2mg about 6 times a day and 100mg of Zoloft for about 5 years. I am very confused now i knew there was going to be a bad withdrawal from the Xanax so i checked myself into a detox center to withdraw from it. I have not used Xanax for about 40 days now but i keep feeling like I'm in a daze and i get those electric shocks like my body is going threw a nervous breakdown. I was reading and these sound like withdraws of Zoloft. I have not felt the same since i checked into detox. I don't know if it's the Xanax or the Zoloft that i am experiencing all these withdrawals. I am not taking any of these medications. Can someone explain what it is that I'm going threw.

I haven't been feeling too well lately so have been absent from posting it reading on these boards. I have a host of illnesses including severe osteoarthritis, mild spinal stenosis, Graves' disease (suffered and survived a mistreated thyroid storm), chronic pain, fibromyalgia, hypertension, LBBB (left bundle branch block in my left side of heart), tendinitis in my ankle, obesity, anxiety, major depressive disorder, etc. You get the drift. I also therefore take about 12 different types of medications equalling up to 24 pills a day I ingest. Oh and I also have anemia and some other female issues (i'm 52 years old)

Due to my latest complaints of severe nausea and lethargy my primary care physician advised me that he would like to see me first try to stop taking Naproxen. I currently take 500 mg twice daily. I stopped cold turkey on Tuesday night and today is friday. I am feeling awful. Please help are these withdrawal symptoms normal with even naproxen? I've been taking it for about a year and prior to that I was taking celebrex for about two years. I am not sure if I will feel better in a few more days of no more headaches and shaking and sweating and irritable bowel.
Has anyone successfully stopped naproxen and how long for withdrawals? And if anyone just decided that the risk of health issues arising from using naproxen was better than feeling pain?
I am using a host of other meds in conjunction with my pain specialist including a host of other opiates, etc.
Can someone help me? I don't know if I should just grin and bare it the worse almost over. Or should I give up and take it again. I don't want to be taking so many drugs any more. I'm feeling like they're killing me fast yet help with pain and daily living.
Began smoking weed daily around a year and a half ago and have now quit. Into day 13 now and i'm experiencing the regular symptoms, but one that concerns me is the severe migraines whenever I exercise. I'm a fitness buff, always have been, and it's really stopping me. I'm having to take Ibuprofen prior to every workout, but it doesn't stop there. Little things like climbing the stairs or sex are causing me a great deal of pain. I'm super-fit (10 mile runs/12 rounds boxing/weight lifting, you name it), I eat incredibly well, and i'm always well hydrated. I know this is a common symptom, but it's really stopping me do the things I love. I'm not about to relapse, i'm much stronger than that, I just wanted to know if there's anybody out there who suffered the same and for how long? There's a lot of stuff about migraines during withdrawals, but none specific to exercise in regards to cannabis from what I can see. Anybody out there feeling the same, persevere.
