  1. I still have dreams about smoking. I remember those sweet puffs after a meal, or that one where you first wake up and puff, making your eyes water it's so good. But I'm glad to have quit, cause I can breathe now and exercise.
  2. If you're convinced it's hurting more than helping I would probably not take it any longer...
  3. I feel so similar so I know it's the depression. Have you got a chance to try ketamine ? I'm considering a run...expensive as hell though.
  4. Of course... SS is a real thing, but it's extremely rare, they just put that side effect up there to cover themselves. More common with the MAOIs I believe?
  5. I don't read the side effects any more cause I have the same problems with health anxiety that you do...If I read the side effects I will end up with every one of them by the end of the week.
  6. The dosages you're taking are so low you don't really have to worry in the slightest. Just to give you an example, I'm tapering from Cymbalta to Effexor. I'll be taking 30mg Cymbalta along with 75mg Effexor for a time until I drop the Cymbalta all together. I've taken Effexor up to 300mg. Having said that, the truth is serotonin syndrome is unpredictable. One person can take a standard dosage of any antidepressant and have symptoms....another person can take high dosages of ADs and not have any symptoms....But imho, you don't have to worry. To ease your worry even more, you can take Ativan to counter the effects of serotonin syndrome should it arise....or go to the ER.
  7. Thanks for all the advice guys, but it didn't work out, had to stop vraylar, got some visuals off of it i found disturbing, it's looking like I'm gonna have to go back to taking effexor...
  8. I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping on Vraylar, just wondering if low dose seroquel is safe to take alongside Vraylar? I assume it wouldn't interact at like 25 mg?
  9. Ya I'm on Day 5, there's some subtle changes, like I'm able to move around more, but nothing too dramatic yet...Hopefully I'll continue climbing. Is there any danger in mixing low dose seroquel for sleep with Vraylar, anyone done this?
  10. I read the Bible a lot, along with a whole host of self-help books for OCD/Anxiety...They do help relieve stress in me.
  11. Ya I'm on Day 5, there's some subtle changes, like I'm able to move around more, but nothing too dramatic yet...Hopefully I'll continue climbing.
  12. You don't have to be hardcore religious to believe in God or Afterlife... I think those thoughts get people through the day. I believe some people do need this (you may be one of them) I believe there's a higher power or creator of some sort...and it's possible we move on to other things. Hard to believe it's just a black void like before we were born.
  13. Nobody really mentioned how long it took, 4 months is a long time, I've heard it works faster than that, I think my PDoc said 1 week I should notice changes.
  14. That was one of the side effects of Seroquel that I appreciated. My appetite tends to take a hit during anxiety and depression.
