Today I taper down to 15mg. of Celexa from 20 mg. I originally was on 40mg. so I feel I a doing well. My doctor prescribed Naproxen for the increased pain in my muscles and joints I a experiencing with the withdrawals. Because I have severe osteoarthritis in many joints, plus fibromyalgia I felt it would be alright to try if the Naproxen helps.
I have been experiencing withdrawals for six years all together. I discontinued Trazodone, Clonazapam, Lamotrigine and Seroquel since March of 2011. I forget what it feels like not to have them.
My personality is coming out more and more as the amount of drugs in my system decreases. I am more spontaneous, laugh , feel joy. I feel my emotions greater which has been wonderful! The drugs do mask a lot of emotions, not just depression. They also mask the good feelings. In the end it will be worth the suffering I am going through to experience life as it really is meant to be.
