> Well, it's been three days now, and nothing is easing up much.
> I haven't been able to keep any food or liquids down since Thursday morning now, and I'nm getting damned hungry and fed up with it.
> The best way I can describe it is sea sickness... My vision is strange (I can also "hear" my eyes focusing), my head spins all tghe time, every time I eat I puke, every time I cough or sneeze I puke.
> I sweat like crazy and get way too hot (it's like, -3 c here right now and snowing) and then get really really cold and start shaking like crazy.
> I haven't taken a pill today (can't face it, and it wouldn't stay down anyway!) and still feel this way. maybe not quite as bad though.
> Oh, and I have a resting heart rate of 146bpm... this isn't normal surely??
> Oh, and since yesterday lunchtime, I've been itching like crazy. First it was my arms, then last night my elgs, now it's my stomach. I called my gp, and they said there was nothing to be done, but it's got to the point I want to go to the hospital.
> I slept about 2 hours in total last night (in 15 minute batches) and when I'm asleep I'm getting awful nightmares that aren't doing my state of mind any good.
> Please - if anyone can help in any way, please, please tell me.
> Thanks

I think I know a little bit about what you are
going through. I just had a trial of zoloft. It
was the most horrible experience I've ever
suffered through as a result of adverse reaction
to an antidepressant. I got extremely anxious,
but I was informed that this would subside as I
had adapted to the medication. But it didn't get
better. I started to get pannicky and much more
depressed, almost demobilized. One night I woke
up at 3:00 AM and started to have a breif
psycotic episode. I said to hell with this and
stopped taking it cold turkey. I felt better
each day for about a week. After that my normal
depression doesn't seem quite as bad. If I were
you I would get off the Reboxitine and stay off
to see if you start feeling better. Don't put
yourself through that hell no matter what your
doctor says.

I think it is strange how differently these meds
Can effect each of us. I tried Reboxitine about a
year ago. I got it from a mail order pharmacy
in Europe. I hated it. Unlike most people I got
very lethargic on it. I like to go on walks
everyday and lift weights a little to keep my
weight down, this has always been hard for me,
but when I was on Reboxitine I just
couldn't make myself exercise at all. Also I
couldn't urinate. It was physically one of the
most uncomfortable experences I've ever had. It
still wasn't as bad as the Zoloft and it wasn't
as bad as what you are experiencing on Reboxitine.
But like I said, we all react differently to
these meds. Again, get off of it for at least a
week before it gets worse, then see how you feel.
