Parkinsons Symptoms While On Xanax
I had been on anxiolytics and felt like a piece of shit when i quit. But now I am perfectly fine and have recovered all the strength and confidence. It is just a matter of time before you regain all your strength and confidence.
You are doing great  |  October 4, 2014
After much research, I've found that high doses of Xanax taken for a long time are the biggest culprits to permanent damage or long-term withdrawals.

If you stopped abruptly, you may have caused yourself more discomfort than necessary. My research shows that 1mg daily rarely if ever causes permanent damage. Try meditation, yoga and breathing exercises while you creep through this tunnel -- and may it be short and over soon. I think you will be fine although your thinking in a fearful way may

I can see this ---definetly things about aparalzom or xanax that i am experieencing that are like parkinsonian symptoms. I stopped and am having extreme weakness in hands and shaking. I am scared I have damaged myself permanently and I was only taking 1mg daily.

Opiate and xanax painless detox
There is an herb that actually helps called kratom. That isn't the actual name of the herb more the brand that carries it, but it was amazingly helpful for me coming off of opiates.
Gina  |  September 8, 2014
...for some reason it cut my comment short?! But do you know of anyone that the Imogaine worked for?? I must check into these herbs, though not sure if they are legal in Europe. But thanks for your post really honest and informative...keep up the good work on getting to the place where you need to be :)
benzobuzzer  |  August 12, 2014
Hey Thanks for your contribution, I was also in a similar situation to you, though I have never tried the Ibogaine route and have always been interested in trying it out. I've gone cold turkey so many times from alcohol, drugs and the rest...but have always ended back on some slippery slopes. The last time which I am still battling also involves an injury where opiates and benzs were prescribed I am now one again stuck in this rut. Do you know of anyone whom the Ibogaine was actually a successf

I was allowed to take Xanax before mine because I was over the top woth nerves. In fact, in addition to the 1 MG I took before I left for the test, I asked the nurse if I could take another after the injection...she let me even tho she said it was a waste, the test was no big deal. Which it wasn't but I can't control my anxiety.

Zoloft Weightloss and Abilify
I started taking Zoloft about 3 weeks ago. I have been suffering with severe, medical depression, social anxiety and feelings of dread. I have good reasons to be depressed, as my Mom died of cancer 4 years ago, and I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer 2 years ago. Now I'm post menopausal at 39 and just can't cope. Immediately after taking Zoloft I began to feel good. Depression had become physically debilitating and I gained a lot I weight. I have also noticed a lack of desire for food, and have

I also have to take Diflucan/flucanozole occaisionally while taking Zoloft...never any problems.
debra  |  March 31, 2014
Zoloft saved my life. Outside of my wonderful husband it is the thing in life I am most grateful for. Much better than Prozac where I always felt medicated.It is not for everyone but if doc recommends it, I would try it. Just pay attention and give it some time and if you have any side effects do not wait to address them...do it immediately.

OMG you have just helped me - I get the racing heart, and now that I think about it, its after a couple of glasses of coke zero
Amy  |  August 20, 2014
I find I get way more severe reaction to caffeine when I am on Zoloft. Have to drink caffeine free coke!
Otherwise I get a racing heart, exactly like a panic attack. Took me ages to figure out, I thought they were panic attacks!

Zoloft and neck stiffness

I take 150mg Zoloft and have the sore nipples and the sore stiff neck which is horrible but this really does work on your neck it has 2 sticky pads connected to this portable device just stick them where the pain is on your neck for the night and you'll feel wonderful in the morning ??
BarbaraMay  |  October 27, 2014
I put mine neck ache down to stress, but if it is a common side affect of Zoloft maybe I'm not super stressed
August 20, 2014
i am taking Mirtazapine and sometimes Lorazepam and sometimes xanax and I too get these stiff necks and just does not subside - i have had them for the last 2 months now - any advice?
rr98  |  July 14, 2014
Same thing with me I have horrible neck pain
And stiffness and a headache and I also take zoloft
Megan  |  June 27, 2014
I take Zoloft and had horrible neck pain from out of no where.. Wonder if it's from that my dr prescribed my flexerol for it.

Same thing, neck pain for months now. Diagnosed for RA now, and prescribed Methortexrate.
mike  |  May 6, 2014
Yes, I also take Zoloft and have bad neck and back stiffness. It does seem to subside after awhile. Try heat and stretches...good luck.

shaky hands
Hi, I have a 12 yr old son...just hope you get better and that u have some people in your life who love u as much as I love my son. If u don't, keep looking, you will find people who care. Good luck, and if the Zoloft feels bad for you, tell your dr. I'll be hoping you are ok. ;-))
Jaipria  |  June 22, 2014
Im glad Zoloft has helped with your depression however it didnt help with mine. I would talk with your doctor about the shaky hands. I stopped taking Zoloft awhile ago and I still have shaky hands from it.
