I have suffered from suicidal depression for 15 years. And anxiety for 5 years
18 years ago my dad died suddenly. 3 year's later my youngest brother died of cancer six months after being diagnosed.
My brothers doctor came to my sister's house to fill out the death certificate. Because we were caring for him there . And we were upset obviously upset
so he gave us a prescription each before he left. For antidepressants now i had never been depressed didn't even know anything about antidepressants
And for the next ten years i was okay or so i thought.
What i didn't realise is that a lot of things that I suffered from or had were probably due to the medication i was on and am still on but at much lower doses and am reducing slowly.
Over the years my antidepressants were changed. But it was never suggested that I should come off of them or reduce them ever.
Five years ago I was really ill with severe panic attacks and suicidal depression and the doctor decided again that I would have to have my antidepressant changed. So she took me off of my dosulpin 90 and put me on mirtazapine 45mg and it took me 2yrs to get over that cut. Not knowing what was wrong with me, not realising that I was having withdrawal symptoms i kept going to the doctors and she kept changing my meds
So the last five years have been hell how i am still here today i do not know. I have learnt so much from this sight .I've spent almost a year reading peoples post and deciding weather or not to join.
And I've spent so much time trying to find something to help me so as would not have to spend the rest of my life taking antidepressants, which give me anxiety and don't help my depression much either.
And what I've found is niacin. It gets rid of anxiety gives me support when I make a cut in my meds, and makes me feel normal . You can read up about it online everywhere
It's amazing and has given me back my life . You have to buy the niacin that makes you flush. And start on the lowest dose possible and increase gradually. Once you flush you can stay at that dose .Don't be afraid of the flush.
The feeling of peace and calm that you get after is amazing and no anxiety. Read about it and educate yourself and then you may want to try it. It is not harmful its a b vitamin b3 actually . It's give to people by the hospitals and doctors and it's very successful for people that suffer from schizophrenia
