  • Protracted Withdrawal Syndrome from antidepressants is a horrendous experience, hardly comparable to anything else there is and ever will be.

    I am a poly cold turkey, long-termer (8 years) survivor (high doses of SSRIs, benzo, antipsychotics) switched between the drugs, the doses going up and down. The worst imaginable combo. I am about 5 years off now. Most of the WD was pure hell that no words will ever be able to describe. Yet, since about 3-4 months now, I have started to feel quite considerable improvement (it did keep improving earlier on in WD), but only now am I rationally and instinctively certain that, at some point, I will be able to fully heal. There is still some way to go, but my faith in the final recovery grows with every passing month.

    For those reading it, please, do NOT ever give up. It is possible to keep healing, even in the worst possible circumstances. Our bodies are incredible resilient, and designed to self-repair. Granted, in some cases it may take time, lots of time, but “lots of time” is nowhere near “forever”.

    I hope this video I made about a month or two ago will bring you hope and help you keep faith:

    If anyone was also interested in learning more about all aspects of antdepressants, there is also this full-length movie called
    “Overpill”:
