> I know about coming off of SRIs and experiencing an existential crisis. For me, it was a withdrawal symptom that emerged when I discontinued Viibryd (vilazodone). As much as the crisis revolved around the realities of how I have experienced (non-experience) life, it would not have happened without an abrupt change in brain chemistry. Hang in there. The crisis should disappear as spontaneously as it appeared. In the meantime, it is important to tell yourself that it is not you. It is the severity of your illness and drug withdrawal.

I know this intellectually, but of course my ego says otherwise. Im just keeping a low profile and trying not to do anything that might hurt myself. Doing a lot of grounding yoga poses to soothe the neurological pathways.

> Which SSRI/SNRI worked best for you?
Effexor actually worked well for the longest time, but it raised my blood pressure dangerously, and caused embarrassing bouts of sweating. It wasnt a good trade off, but it best helped my mood. When I first started Zoloft, however, I had an entire remission of symptoms, lasting three days or so. I was so encouraged!!

> What was it about Zoloft that you found unsatisfactory?
The way it made my hair fall out... the nurse practitioner who prescribed it absolutely refused to accept I was in the 1% of patients who had this reaction. Nothing else is the possible cause, though. My GP, dermatologist, and NEW pdoc concur.
