Mar 22, 2016 · Withdrawal from Lexapro, Welbutrin, Lyrica, prescribed Ziprasidone. in Depression & Anxiety

I am successfully withdrawing from Lexapro, Welbutrin, and Lyrica. Stopped these meds mid December 2015. There are mild side effects but am pleased with progress. I now have mental clarity beyond any hopes over the past 10 years. Yesterday my new new doctor prescribed Ziprasidone HCL 20mg for mild bipolar disorder. I filled the scrip, but have not started the medication. Have been researching the side effects, which are frightening. Am calling the Dr. today to say I will not take this. It seems to me that I am being prescribed medicine for temporary side effects. I am trying to find help for fibromyalgia and think that reducing stress will help. Have had many years of various levels of “trauma” which caused the fibro.
I understand that mental/mood disorders can be difficult to treat but am getting frustrated. I don’t feel like I am being heard by the new internist, pain management Dr. or psychiatric physician assistant.
