I have been on cipralex for over a year, after trying celexa at first. Celexa seemed to make my problems worse, after 4 weeks of finding a way to kill myself with anything i could see, i knew it was too dangerous to continue. That is when i started Cipralex 20mg. at first i felt like a zombie, my wife was saddened by the fact that i didnt care much about anything. after a few months and a lot of psyco-social visits, things got better.
I am now at the point where i have been wiening off for the last month. Reading other stories, my sumptoms seem the same, yet i feel they are somehow worse than others. I get the spike of electricity feelings all the time. My biggest problem is the random visits of nausea. as well as body shakes.
after reading about ideas such as chocolate, and warm baths, i can confirm that those tricks have helped me. another one i feel that helps me, is cold drinks ( not alcohol). ice cream as well. I dont know about the whole physical activity. i'm too afraid to go for a walk or run, because 1/2 the time i feel as if i may pass out.
Thanks for the help everyone. good luck with this.
Bro, No worries we all have the same sensations and feelings if you read mine it was before yours, we used simlar words, like death, zombie, electric shock lets explain each sensation together
the electric shock is whe the body reach to a state of fear that this time you will not control yourself. the breathing will be unstable and you dont want to think about anything else but to ask some1 to help you coz u feel your going to faint in any minute, this kind of unstablity cause and creates this electric shocks in your body. I found improvements when i started going to Gym and tring to make 6 packs, if you build your body to be stronger the effects will be less when you going to start those panic attacks. another solution and please guys forget about food, yes good food will make you healthier but because of the medicine we are taking there is a pain in the stomach which sometimes we feel its something wrong with our heartbeats, eat less like salad and fruits and if you got hungry at night eat somthing light again, the second solution is socializing, and its a must!! dont be afraid and say if i go out with this girl i might get have panic attack and get embarressed and dont say if im going out with this guy he might see that i am week, imagine it this way since your brain is sending the wrong messages to your body to get the panic attack , everything which will be useful and will make your health better your brain will be against it. always be surrounded of people and people who you love, try to do the things you like to do most, swimming is really helpful becasue your chest will have better breathing pressure after you do exercises , hope what i said was useful well right now im not using cipralex anymore im using a medicine called pristiq desvenlafaxine this is my second day with this treatment ill will let you know after 7 - 12 weeks if this medcine is better or not than cipralex.
