I have recently stopped taking anti-depression meds that I have been on, in some form or another, for 20 years. I tapered off over a period of 3 months. I have been med free for exactly 4 weeks. I am in constant pain now. My muscles ache, my joints hurt, I have headaches. People have used words like Fibro-mialgia (sic).
The meds I am no longer taking:
Paroxetine 40mg twice daily
Trazadone 100 mg at bedtime
Epitol 600 mg twice daily.
Am I still experiencing withdrawal? Will this pain go away? Any suggestions on a temporary pain med (over the counter) to help until my body gives up on the withdrawal?
Thank you
