How I got off Paxil quickly
 
04:46
After being "paxil free" for 2 weeks I decided to share how I did it. Ween with very little withdrawal. Disclaimer: Always consult with a medical professional before stopping ANY medication!!!! Withdrawals going cold turkey were very difficult to deal with. Tried twice and it was terrible. Alternatively, my weening process took about 2 months, and it was not all that bad! This is an explanation of how I succeeded, not on how YOU should do it. Comment with any questions or clarifications on the video. Share with others who could benefit in knowing it is possible to be paxil free.

Lexapro: Why I Quit
 
09:10
Im not a doctor. Always ask your doctor if you can get off a medication. This medication is often prescribe for people with types of depression including one's that have bipolor. If so then realy think about it before quiting especially if you are on more than 5mg. I have very little depression and have more anxiety. I was only prescribed the lowest amount. Views and opinions in this video are based on how i felt of this medication and maybe different from other people experiences as it could effect everybody differently. Do your research if you feel something is wrong.

SSRI, LEXAPRO Brain Damage
 
26:17
Facebook Group for victims, not open to the public, but available if you have had a similar event: https://www.facebook.com/groups/241028905999497/ Severe adverse reaction to one 10mg pill of Lexapro (escitalopram) almost 5 years ago. I am attempting to share my experiences, thoughts and opinions about SSRI drugs and what happened to me. I live in Kentucky, United States. Please comment or send an email to discuss this issue. Lexapro, has ruined my life. One 10mg pill severely damaged my brain. 8 hours after taking the pill, I entered into a world of a neurological nightmare. I am afraid this happens more often than we know. I could have very easily been placed in a psyche-ward or accidentally killed myself the first few days after taking that pill. Then, no one would be able to tell my story. What happened........ After suffering a chronic sleep disorder for decades, I couldn't get more than 4 hours of sleep a night so I went to the doctor for some medical help. September 23rd 2006: The doctor prescribed Lexapro (10mg). So I took this pill having been reassured by frequent television adverstisements that it was safe. My doctor also acted as if these pills were harmless. I took the pill and went to sleep about noon. 8 hours later I woke to the most awful, strange, powerful inner sensations. I was also filled with a feeling of dread or horror. I had never experienced anything like this before and I couldn't believe it. It felt as if my brain was dying...... I jumped out of bed and ran around my house.... I couldn't stop moving or the sensations would get worse. Sheer horror! The symptoms: Many are similar to Serotonin Syndrome. Waves of nervous energy flowing through my body like painful electric shocks Inner tremor Mania Extreme pressure in head Couldn't lay down flat Extreme panic and fear...dread Sensations of my brain and body burning or sizzling, buzzing Intense disconnected feeling from reality High Fever (103) Flu-like symptoms Terrible headache Extreme nausea Waves of sensations throughout my body and skin Visual hallucinations Visual impairments Dizzy spells Unable to exercise much unable to tolerate caffeine, alcohol and other vitamins or medicines Akathisia (inability to stop moving) Panic Showering would hurt my skin Unable to lay down Dizziness Loud ringing in the ears (High frequency) Racing and violent thoughts BRAIN ZAPS (Immediate equilibrium interruption or disruption) Racing, uncontrollable thoughts unable to control emotions Inability to focus Unable to listen to music Unable to listen to music High fever Flu-like symptoms (exactly like the flu) Profuse sweating Unable to distinguish TV from reality Felt like being out of reality Anxiety Depression (due to circumstances) Hyper-sensitivity to almost everything Screaming upon waking I really didn't think I was going to survive. It has been over 4 years since then and I have had to deal with some of these symptoms, in varying degrees, since then. I made slow progress over the years but unfortunately I haven't recovered completely. Plus, since then I have been having unexplained strokes.

Coming off antidepressants (Lexapro), weeks 10 to 16
 
09:14
In this video I share my experience from the side effects of coming off Escitalopram (aka Lexapro or Cipralexa), what to expect and how to deal with the withdrawal symptoms of discontinuation throughout the procedure. I was on 10mg for 2.5 years. When I went to the doctor, the initial tapering plan that she gave me was: - Week 1: alternating between 10 mg one day, 5 another day - Week 2: alternating between 5 mg one day, 0 the other day - Week 3: alternating between one day on 5 mg, 2 days on 0 mg - Week 4: alternating between one day on 5 mg, 3 days on 0 mg This was too short, so the plan that I ended up creating for myself was: - Weeks 1 to 3: alternating between 10 mg one day, 5 another day - Weeks 4 to 5: alternating between 10 mg one day, 0 the other day - Weeks 6 to 9: alternating between 5 mg one day, 0 the other day - Weeks 10 to 13: alternating between one day on 5 mg, 2 days on 0 mg - Weeks 13 to 16: alternating between one day on 5 mg, 3 days on 0 mg WARNING: This was my personal plan, made according to my own life circumstances at the time. Your might take more or less time, according to your own reactions and life events that may arise. For any questions or concerns: nazareslab@gmail.com
