  1. I wanted to share what I’m going through currently. I’m once again, trying to get off Zoloft for the same reason I assume most try to bear the pain of ssri withdrawal,...I’ve been on meds so long, I don’t remember what it feels like to be me, yadda yadda. I got off Zoloft one time successfully but got back on 100 mg about 6 months ago (BAD MISTAKE) bc my doc acted like she couldn’t help me at all if I didn’t start back on an ssri. I weened down slowly until 25 mg every other day with little withdrawal effects. About 8 days ago I had stopped taking Zoloft completely and the horrible withdrawal symptoms kicked in high gear last night. Bloodshot eyes, ringing ears, body hurts beyond words, blurred vision, all of it. I’m finding that I’m having to take an old pain killer (from a surgery that I had years back) to cope with just the physical body pain. My back is screaming for help and I feel absolutely insane for risking addiction to a much worse substance than Zoloft,...but stating to take Zoloft again doesn’t seem to help. I seem to be in a bad bad place where taking Zoloft hurts and not taking it hurts. Any ideas besides call doctor bc I’ve done that and of course explained my issue to a secretary and will have to wait for her to call me back. And even then, she’s more likely to stone me for wanting to get off Zoloft to begin with rather than help. I seriously hate doctors now
  2. Having a really hard time..

    Hey there. Sorry to hear your story. I deal with full blown agoraphobia myself and have yet to find a med that helps even remotely. I guess, imo, I would say bispirone was next to useless for me. Made me very dizzy/uncomfortable right away (not weeks after taking it like other meds). Best of luck
  3. Feeling Trapped

    I'm new here and just want to say I too am right there with you. I'm 26 years old, male, and have been suffering from anxiety for 13 years only for it to finally lead to full blown agoraphobia,...after years of trying to battle it with meds, therapy, etc. I'm just here to say you're not alone and it's unfortunately nice to know that I'm not alone. I literally don't leave my house at all which makes it impossible for me to get any help lol. It's a catch 22 situation.
