I have been off MZP now for 18 days. I was on 15mg for around a year (just under) for anxiety disorder and depression. My neurologist had brought me off it as he was worried it could be the cause of brain condition I have (iih). I took a tablet every other night for about 2 weeks then broke the tablet in half and went to every three or four days on the 7.5mg for about 14 days more. This was 18 days ago. I am experiencing withdrawal hell and have been so horrendously ill I am getting very depressed again and anxious about working. I have extreme nausea, stomach cramps, headaches, diarrhoea, and the worst most prominent symptom is the travel sickness! I can barely look at my phone/watch TV/socialise, i can't drive and I certainly can't work. This is really getting me down.
Has anyone been through anything similar and know when I may start feeling better? I am in such a hole at the moment and can't function in day to day life. My holiday last week was ruined because of it and my 21St birthday.
The doc has also switched me onto 20mg of propranolol in the mean time. I'm pretty sure I got these withdrawal symptoms before I started my new tablets.
Any help is appreciated!
