I have been on setraline 50mg over a year now- I have now started aiming off and down to 3days a week- Feeling awful and mentally scared of these feelings - feel like I’m on a dream and heart racing- Anyone else came off of setraline and been ok after the side effects of stopping them x
Stopping setraline : I have been on... - Anxiety Support
What’s your reason for coming off them?
I have been on various pills over the years and started Setraline in 2015. I would never stop mine now I don’t think.
I tapered off of setraline and didn't have a problem other than some brain zapping that went away after a few days. Be kind and gentle with yourself and give your mind and body some time to adjust. I agree with amh, why are you getting off of it? I got off of it because it wasn't working for me and tried going the natural supplement route which also did not work. I ended up doing a psychopharmacological test to see what meds were best for me genetically and got on one of those (pristiq) which has worked well.
I’ve been given propanolol but too scared to start x It took me a year to get myself to take the setraline 🤦♀️
Usually doctors are clueless about the withdrawal affects and how fast you should taper off. You should double or even triple the amount of time they recommend for tapering. I tried propanolol and it didn't do anything for me but we are all different and react differently to meds. It's harmless and like Kay said, it's used for treating blood pressure. I understand your reluctance but it's your anxiety thinking thats holding you back from getting better. You won't know until you try and the worse that can happen is you tapper off of it too. That's one of the main reasons I liked my psychpharm test, it helps take the majority of the guess work out of it for the doctor and you. Personally, I found that meds did not eliminate my anxiety they only helped me realize what "normal" could be like. It took therapy, meds, willpower and commitment for me to recover. Best to you.
What is a psychpharm test??? Is this a test in order for the doc to know which med is best for you???? Did you take the test or did the doc? Never heard of it but my interest is peaked. 😊
It's a psychopharmacological test that uses your dna to determine which meds are bested suited for you genetically. Mine was from Genesight and there are also other brands available. Mine was prescribed by my psych med nurse and paid for by my insurance. My test showed that of all the meds I had been on and tried previously including zoloft, cymbalta, buspar, prozac and klonopin, klonopin was the only one that would work for me, which I already knew. I tried one of the meds the test indicated would also work for me which was pristiq and it has worked well. I no longer take or need the klonopin. Basically, the test helps take out the majority of the guess work by your doc or psych med person and you about which meds are best for you genetically.
Weight gain,fatigue,dizzy spells,headache, I just feel they haven’t really helped me x
Propronolol is harmless. Been on it since my twenties, and I'm now in my 70's. When you first start it, get up slowly from a sitting position. Lowers BP.
I fear dizziness x
Then get up slowly until you're accustomed to it. NO dizziness.
The dizziness sets off my panic attacks- that’s my big fear x
The dizziness causes you to set off the panic. It's ingrained in you from repetition. Been there done that.
How did you get out of that cycle xI want to take the propanolol so bad but I overthink myself into a panic and feeling lightheaded
Get into a support group with like minded people. You are not alone in this fight. There is help and new friends in a support group.
It's the damned Sertraline withdrawal. You've come off of it too quickly. Ask the doc the last time he/she took the ---- !!!
