Hi Just42day... welcome to our family
Your poor brain has got you here so it is doing well so far, and well done for getting all the information from the site so you can already see what and how your situation has occurred. And yes, you are fine and very welcome to talk to us about this. What one of us doesn't know, the other will. Or if we all don't, we have plenty of resources to fall back on.
So by my calculations, you will have been off the Cym around 20-something of Feb... so you have been not taking any for around 2 weeks - would that be right? If so, you are within the catchment period to reinstate the previous dose - after 4 weeks it would be more difficult. But rather than jumping right back to 30mg, those two weeks may have bought you a bit of space, so I would suggest to start at 20mg, and if you don't see improvement within 3-4 days, to then perhaps go with the 30mg. We don't want you going back thru more than you have to. But I advise you do so soon. You do have the option of toughing it out, but if you were on Cym for several years, the odds are that things will get nasty if you don't.... and we want you healthy and happy.
The other thing you need to consider is the supplements. These can include Omega 3 (an important one for dizziness, zaps etc),Suntheanine (for anxiety, agitation), Apple Cider Vinegar/Ginger (for nausea and energy)... there are more, but we need to work one at a time to see what is and isn't working. So first we will establish which of the symptoms is the most annoying!!
Others will be along in a mo to introduce themselves, but for now, hang tight and ask whatever you like

My pleasure - and everyone who finds us here makes all of us very happy because it is another person who we can help not to suffer.
I should also say that the Prozac is also a way forward, but I agree with you in not wanting to put more into your system after such a long haul. Any why give Eli Lily (pharma responsible for both Cym and Prozac) any more money for their "efforts". They have a lot to answer for...
Keep us posted

IUN has you off to a great start. I do take a little different approach to reinstating. If you are 2 weeks off and not dying from the symptoms yet that is a good sign. I would start with just 10 beads. If that is not enough you can always take more. If it does the trick you won't have as far to come down. 10 beads doesn't work then try 15 beads, etc.

An optimistic suggestion from our beloved Hatster, but as my tutor, I'd say give his advice the first refusal!
Prepared to see if this overcomes a two-week CT, but if it does get to the point that your symptoms kick it up a gear, then do the same with the dose. Feel free to ask as and when, but don't be alarmed if you do end up with a larger dose. There are no prizes for sticking it out the longest!!!

You know when you go to the beach... and then weeks later you are still finding sand in every available orifice?
That is the same for those damn beads. I took my last dose over 4 months ago, and the little buggers are still appearing all over my apartment...
