After 6 long weeks of tapering down slowly, I am finally off this med.
I didnt realise just how mind numbing it made me feel, although I am taking paroxetine which has helped in the past, my gp was reluctant to prescribe again, I think because of the bad press it got.
I went to see a pysch and he presribed it and now have it on my gps records to continue to prescribe. This has took 14 month 7 different anti depressants and a cbt course, but hey I got there in the end.
I know a lot of people have benefitted from this med, it just wasnt the one for me, I have not gained any extra weight whilst I was on it.
I had my last cbt session today and am going on a 6 week life skills course and hopefully find a job in the new year with the help of an organisation called pathway, they help people who have had mental health illness get back to work.
My heart goes out to anyone going through this horrible dibilitating illness, I wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy, but things can and will get better, it just takes time a lot of time and it can be so frustrating.
Well thats me done, I will continue to read your posts and if anyone wants to ask me any questions about my experience just go ahead and ask.
Best Wishes love to all,
