... the period of a year when I was put down 2 15 mg. per year. I have now been off it 4 13 weeks and am experiencing horrendous protracted w/d symptoms of chronic insomnia (about 4 hours sleep per week if I'm lucky), burning, tingling, numbness, vibrations throughout body and head, adrenaline surges, myoclonic jerks, dp./dr., blurry vision, plugged up ears, fear of going insane, fear this will never end and the list goes on. My symptoms just appear 2 b getting worse day by day since about the 2nd 2 3rd week of being off it. Over the past 2 1/2 years I have also come off gabapentin (off 2 years), zoplicone (off 2 years) Seroquel (off 10 months) and mirtazapine (off 13 weeks). Is it normal 4 my symptoms 2 b so severe and feel like their getting worse after being totally off all these medicines 4 13 weeks? The burning, vibrations, adrenaline surges and insomnia 4 relentless. I came off these poisons due to the fact I am paradoxical 2 them and they were making me extremely ill. Please help. I am at the end of my rope. Thank you
SLOWER IF THAT IS POSSIBLE. BE VERY CAREFUL AND JUST GO TO THE HOSPITAL IF YOU NEED TO. BEST OF LUCH THEY CAN HELP YOU A LOT MORE WITH THIS CONDITION. BUT AS YOU SAY YOUR AT THE END OF YOUR ROPE AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO DO ANYTHING. THE BEST PLACE IS WITH PEOPLE THAT CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS CONDITION. PLEASE ALSO TALK THE BOTTLE OF EVERYTHING YOU HAVE COME OFF OF SO THE DOCTORS KNOW WHAT YOU WERE TAKING THIS SHOULD HELP THEM TELL IF IT IS ONE OR MORE THAT IS GIVING YOU ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS. GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND PLEASE DO SOMETHING AND NOW IS AS GOOD AS ANYTIME.
I also believe I am in the throes of withdrawal from one that you mentioned getting off in the past, Gabapentin. I don't want to hyjack your post but I am at the end of my rope too. Have an regency dr visit next week and hoping for success. OH, regards for your problem as well.
