Hi all,


I am on my last bead and it has been absolute chaos with the withdrawal symptoms since I got under 3 beads. I've been on it for a week now, but it's really impacting my daily life, where I am incapacitated. Do I keep pushing through or should I try to get on Prozac to help with the last bead? 


Thank you!

Welcome bazinga1


There are several options. 


1) go back to 2 beads and stabilize and then wean much slower. This does not always work


2) Use certain supplements to help with symptoms until you recover. These usually help some but there is substantial suffering anyway usually.


3) There are certain prescription meds that may help a lot, hydroxyzine and clonidine, and do not have a withdrawal. Trey to avoid taking any benzo as their withdrawal is as bad as Cymbalta. 


4) Go on either Prozac, Zoloft or Lexapro. These often help but many times do not. I myself went on 4 different antidepressants before one finally helped. Each antidepressant takes 4 to 8 weeks to kick in and if it doesn't work you have to wait another 4 to 8 weeks for the next one to help. 


Not really good options but no matter which one you choose it may work or may not work. My recommendation is number 3 as it is the one with the best chance to help.


Let us know if you have any questions or just want to vent.


I would also recommend treading over our ebook (its free!!). It is a summary of what other members have tried, how it worked out, medical research, drug interactions, etc.

Not a lot of choice when it comes to the last bead!!!


I remember the member well. There was much discussion of this, including the variation between beads themselves being of different sizes. This chap was VERY sensitive...
