How long can this possibly last?

Posted by mcp on August 31, 2004, at 1:50:42

I am on week 5 of Lex withdrawal and although I don't have the nausea and flu-like symptoms, I still feel fuzzy headed and dizzy on occasion. I also have episodes of extreme fear and sadness. I know many may think this is just the reemergence of depression, however, I have been severely depressed before and it never manifested itself like this. I was given the cocktail of depakote, zyprexa, and lexapro to quell anxiety and all it did was turn me into this mess now that I am off it. I absolutely refuse to ever go back on ADs or APs. I feel they did much more harm than good and I am not going to go on the merrygoround of letting them play chemistry set on my brain. In the meantime, back to the benzos. When I was on just the benzos before my anxiety was under control and I never had any of these sensations. The trouble started with this other crap. Tried SAM-e and it helped a little, but eventually made me sick. I am thinking of trying St. John's Wort. First, any thoughts or advice in terms of the withdrawal and readjustment off the drugs I was taking. Second, any thoughts or suggestions to ease some of this fear over whether I am ever gonna feel normal again. Each day that passes where I don't feel better makes the fear get even worse. THanks for any input.
