Hello And Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts


I'm Badger. I'm not really sure what to write in the introducing myself part as I have read that it is not a place to tell my story... basically i'm interested in talking about withdrawing off escitalopram as that is what i am experiencing but also happy to talk/discuss depression in general

thanks for having me here :)

Hi Badger,


I'm Sarah. I'm not sure how to introduce myself either :). Sorry, I've never taken escitalopram. I started taking sertraline 5 weeks ago. It hasn't been good so far. But since I've come along this far, I don't want to stop yet, even though, honestly, I'm in hell. I've read that with SSRI's you need to very slowly taper off or you can have a really hard time. How long you've been on it and what dose also affects the length of withdrawal. I hope you're not suffering too much. Why are you stopping it?

HI all, thanks for the replies!\

Thanks 20years and counting i will do my intro page and read the info for new members.

the withdrawals: well i have been advised that i tapered in the wrong way and too quickly and been told to now take a tiny dose each day for a while to stabilising before going off them so now i'm not suffering withdrawals but just back to the same old numb state
