I haven't posted since November. I am almost off - one bead a day now. I have an appointment with my psychiatrist 3 days after I am completely off.
My main challenge is insomnia. And that is why my shrink wants me off the Cymbalta. He thinks the norepinephrine in it might be contributing to my insomnia. (Also, take Doxepin and Remeron for depression which are both sedating plus Gabapentin for sleep.)
On days that I haven't slept I feel s-o-o-o-o bad that I think about taking my own life. Then, I'll sleep and feel better and more optimistic. Insomnia is a symptom of anti-depressant withdrawal - right?
I guess I am just looking for support. I have written down the suicide numbers under Medical Support in case I need them. I'm a lot better today because I slept. Yesterday so tired and not very good.
Thanks for this site.
