Hi Guys,

Yep seems that there is some unpublished indisputable facts here about this drug. I am a musician and my experience with the drug was that my feelings of suicide did seem to abate however, I lost a whole heap of creativity and seemed to just live on autopilot. Felt like I could feel nothing. Rather be blue right!? Any way my playing was affected badly - I was reverting constantly to wrote learned phrases ideas and constructing music turned into a labour of music theory rather than creativity. Decided to stop once I knew that I had to do something or be forced to just exist rather than live.

My withdrawel experiebce came to a crescendo when I was driving my car laughing unconrollably at something and I got the tingling so bad in my face and left hand side of my body that I could not move my arm hand or leg. Man I thought I had had a stroke or soe crazy thing! Went to the hospital and had a scan and they said no stroke..So it does go down to this drug for my thinking. All over now, 6 months off them and so much better for it. Therapy is the answer not drugs. (if it can work for you of course)

Any way, for those kicking the drug hang in there it is sooooo worth it to be able to laugh with a friend and be creative again.
