@sears, under my psychiatrist 's direction….a fairly slow taper. Just can't seem to stabilize at any dose, however.

Dec 20, 2019 · Benzodiazepine side effects that prompted you to taper. in Depression & Anxiety

I am currently in Valium taper after unsuccessful attempts with Klonopin and Ativan.
But I am still wondering about my initial symptoms, which haven't improved, only got worse. Is my symptom profile different/similar to others who finally decided to get help with this nightmare?
Would like to know what symptoms you were having that prompted you to get help.
I experienced severe fatigue, visual blurring, burning mouth, and 50lbs. + of weight loss. After starting taper, now have these same symptoms plus nausea and increased anxiety. What was your symptom experience BEFORE taper?
Any and all responses appreciated, as this will help me understand better what is happening with me.
Thanks very much.

I am trying to start esketamine treatments for depression/anxiety, which is long-term without medication relief. Does anyone know how Medicare is handling these claims, in general?
Thanks for any responses.

Dec 14, 2019 · Phenibut for anxiety, sleep in Sleep Health

@lisalucier, Thanks for the response and the link. Phenibut is available as a "supplement" from a well-known on-line vitamin site, so importing it is not in question. And, why would it be different than many of the other supplements sold here that have no FDA restrictions?
What I'm concerned about is it's safety and effectiveness, thus asking the membership here about their experience.
Any thoughts or comments from anyone is appreciated.

@guener, are you tapering a benzodiazepine?
Either way, I would suggest following it up with your physician.

Ginger does help some and I use it quite often. The small ginger chess seem to work best, along with liquid ginger.

Dec 6, 2019 · Relief from nausea in Depression & Anxiety

@lisalucier, yes usually after meals. The heavier the meal, the more nausea there is to deal with.
