I appreciate this article but there are many of us who never experienced withdrawal. Many of us are being diagnosed with chronic conditions such as dementia, medication induced Neurocognitive Disorder, hyponatremia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibro, orthostatic hypotension, neuropathy and others. Psych meds are known to cause mitochondrial Damage. I included some studies.
Many of us are looking for ways to communicate this to the public but they are only found in independent studies and really unknown to the masses.
Great story. Thanks for sharing. So much is written about the withdrawal effects but these drugs are also very bad to take and cause neurotoxicity, dementia, stroke, akathisia and so much more. I’m glad he’s improving.
These articles are becoming more frequent which is nice to see. I’ve been diagnosed with Neurotoxicity because of Lexapro. I’m permanently disabled after an adverse reaction. It took two years to find a doctor to admit it. Now I can qualify for disability to support my family. My hope is to see them banned one day. Doctors need to also stand behind their patients not betray them.
I was actually diagnosed with Toxic Encephelopathy and Medication Major Neurotcognitive Disorder from an adverse reaction to Lexapro. Toxic E is the actual medical term for Neurotoxocity. I am unable to work, watch a movie in 27 months. I also have severe neurological damage with fatigue and coordination issues. The headaches are unreal. People often think of the mental aspects of pych med injuries. But they can destroy people physically and cognitively too.
