I have been weaning off an antidepressant given to me along with a benzodiazepine from 2 1/2 years ago when my daughter died. I have had to wean myself off the antidepressant and am on an extremely small dose. This antidepressant is best weaned off by getting the smallest capsule and taking out a tiny bead a day. It’s so ridiculous I have to do this. This way I have minimal side effects. The doctors tried to get me off faster and I had debilitating withdrawals. I tried to get off the Benzos at the same time and was literally so sick I couldn’t function. So I’m going to start that taper as soon as I’m done with this one. I am angry I was prescribed this medication I was not told of these effects.
