hello everyone. been a while since i was last on the forum. But i need some answers. A month or so ago i went cold turkey on anti-anxiety medication. I had been on it for a little over 2 years. A week or so after i stopped taking my meds i developed horrible heartburn, nausea, and diarrhoea. went to my GP and he said he suspected a stomach flu. i was also experiencing dizziness, electric like zaps in my head, and confusion. the gp put me on some antibiotic and anti diarrhoea meds. A week later, i still was getting no better, and wa dehydrated. i was rushed to the ER where a upon hearing that id quit my meds the er doctor then said i could be suffering withdrawal symptoms from the meds. Its been a month, and the heartburn and diarhea persist. and today i had a series of panic attacks and have even been contemplating going back on the meds. sorry for the long write up, but my question is has anyone ever experienced antidepressant withdrawal sympstoms? what were they? and how long did they last? by the way, my doctor had been the one to take me off my meds upon my telling her we wanted to try for a baby.
