I am sick to death off my physc doc, he is a quack..

He told me to just stop taking the 15mgg of miirt dailly that i have been on for 5 years and to take sertrraline 50mg instead. I tried it for 3 days but the withdraw from the mmirt was diving me  insane. Plus on the third day i waas urinating blood that  iis a known side efffect of sertraline.  Anyway i went straight back on the mirt, I now take one and a hallf 15mg ttabs at night plus half a tab when i waake up.

    Hi Roger and Norma ...

    the only thing that has helped me is a medication in the benzo group. I took it for a years..long time ago and had no side effects and no withdrawal...whatsoever, not even an itch. I never felt addicted nor did I ever seek to get more. It was some genius GP that told me to use the mirt instead because it's not addictive...haha

    as we all know it's worse than that.

    my new doctor said ( was on Ativan ) now on Xanax was fine for sleep and very good to help me get off the mirt.

    she told me after I get stable I can easily reduce. Which I agree because I did it before and I was fine. I don't aguse drugs
