Nov 21, 2018 · Valium (diazepam) Taper in Depression & Anxiety

I just found out I’m going to live for 8 weeks inpatient while they finish my slow taper. Not in a “lockdown “ psych ward but in an apartment with a few other women and go to classes on how to live with anxiety and depression without medication. So hopefully my situation will be greatly improved. I start Monday. I will post here as I go through. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

It’s true. I am lucky. Today I’ve just struggled very tired from starting the Celexa I think. My doctor is very concerned that the Johnson and Johnson one will only be given inpatient and only those experiencing suicidal ideation will get it. Regardless I wonder something. If your doctor would be open to a prescription for it my doctor uses a compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts that makes it. I’m not totally sure if there’s a private message feature on this website if there is one feel free to send me a message and I could offer you their information.

Today has been really hard. I’m exhausted. I think it might be from the ketamine which I used this morning. I’m so ready for the Celexa to kick in but know it can be a frustratingly slow process.

I have been posting on another thread. I’m currently receiving ketamine nasal spray as my doctor was one of the first in the country to work with ketamine many years ago. I can’t afford the infusions at this point. I’ve been using the nasal spray for about a week I’m not totally certain it’s helping me but he’d like me to give it a little more time. From what I understand from him ketamine really has the ability to heal brain receptors badly damaged by years of severe anxiety and depression. I will keep up with this thread if I feel anything really changes. It is supposed to be good for pain too sad it didn’t work for the person that received it for that.

I just happened to be speaking to my doctor when I saw your message. He said please visit his website keithablow.com because he will help you if you decide he’s the right doctor for you. Thank you for the information on the Celexa. I do believe I will improve from it.

Thank you for the reply! And the ketamine info. I don’t know exactly what has kept me going just a sense that one day my life will be better after all this. Also possibly experiencing it all will allow me to truly help another one day. Not only will I be able to be compassionate but truly I’ve walked in their shoes.

Nov 14, 2018 · Protracted Benzo withdrawal in Depression & Anxiety

I agree. I cannot tolerate Lyrica I’m thrilled you’ve found some relief with it though. I can’t remember anything on it. I did add the antidepressant Celexa a few days ago because the quality of life I am experiencing is so poor. I also become tolerant to benzodiazepines very quickly for some reason so if I tried to stay on them for good I’d need enormous doses. I have high hopes for the Celexa which I could see being on the rest of my life. It’s possible he does need them for good as I think he said he’s in his 80s. Thank you for posting your thoughts.

I think he mentioned 8mg of Ativan at the beginning and was “tapered” in 3 weeks. I just joined this group a few days ago I’ve been particularly concerned about this man. I myself am going through a benzodiazepine taper I’m glad to hear you’ve healed. God bless us all for the amount of sheer misery tapering benzodiazepines and symptoms created from them.
