Moving out, working... #COVID19 #Depression #weaningoff #NewYears #Holidays #Stress wtf

I mean... when will this end?

I'm moving out, the beaurocracies it takes to move out and move into a new house/apt.. the utilities, the panic attacks and mood swings, and pandemics and this stress, I'm not really sure I can take it.


Weaning off Venlafaxine...

I don't even know if I'm going it right... or if I should even be doing it. I feel lost.

I've been taking 100-75mg for five years... about a year ago, I reduced it down to 50, then to 37.5, I think.. I just recently I decided that I'm done with this. At least I think I am. About a month ago I started the tapering process.. a pill every other day for a week or two, now I'm pill free.. for about two to three weeks. I can't really remember that well. Being that it wasn't that hard, I didn't really keep track of it all, due to my life style and perhaps laziness.

The symptoms are kicking in all of a sudden and I don't know if I should be worried or not, I feel like I'm doing it all wrong and maybe I should just go back.

Has anyone succesfully weaned of escitalopram after years of using it?

I’ve had failed attempt after failed attempt of reducing my escitalopram dosage of only 10mg. I tried as little as 2.5mg less per day but after the withdrawal symptoms and a few weeks, my stiff arms, constant worry and depressive mood come back. My doctor says i am extremely sensitive to dosage modifications and i can only try weaning off again during a very stable period - which i’m not sure will ever come. Any good stories from those successful getting off the meds? #Escitalopram ##weaningoff
