Today is a good day! I made up my mind earlier this month to get off of my meds (Zoloft and Buspar) and after reading many postings on this site I decided that it was time. I don't think that the meds were doing me any good anymore so about
3 weeks ago I started cutting back (yes, I discussed this with my therapist a while ago). I am now taking about
3 mg (1/4 of one pill) of buspar a day - mostly for my head as I know it's not enough to make a difference in anything. Next month I intend to be off of everything.
I have had NO side effects at all - no brain "zaps", as I have read about
. There have been a few nights when I drank a small glass of wine to help me relax some. I know that this does not mean that I will no longer have anxiety, but I am doing my best to alleviate symptoms with breathing tools and keeping active. It's no different then when I was on the meds, so why take them?! I will continue to carry an emergency stash in my bag - it makes me feel better to know that it is there - otherwise, HALLELUJAH!
This venue for those of us with issues is one of the best things that has ever come to my door. Thank you all for the support and advice - it is and will continue to be, invaluable to me and many, many others. Bless you all.
See - maybe God, or whatever you believe in, really did give us these challenges for a reason, maybe it is to help others in these predicaments.
Blessings - Reepin
