Hello Zoe. I hope you're able to get off the meds. I can't take any because of side-effects. So I see a therapist and I'm working through an awesome book. I will overcome!! and so will you

Welcome to the team. I'm from Barrie, Ontario. I got off my meds about 2 years ago. It's hard work controlling it, but I'm doing with with healthy diet (making sure to incorporate lots of the foods that are said to help depression), exercise, and most importantly cutting out processed foods (anything with chemicals & preservatives it them). Meditations help me also; as does music every day; my bible; positive affirmations. I was taking a natural product for a while that helped bridge the gap between weening myself off the meds and adjusting to life without meds. It helped a lot for me.

Welcome Zoe! With my doctor's and counselor's help I'm only on a small dose of Celexa. My grandmother, mom, and daughter have had panic attacks so I think it is hereditary and my brain needs a bit of medication. My doctor said not to feel guilty about that.

However, your goal should be about you. Check into diaphragm breathing and meditation to redirect your thoughts.

Good luck, we're here for you, Carol emoticon

emoticon Zoe. I would like to get off my meds also. I am only taking half right now. I think I would be okay on most days if I did not take it. I am apprehensive to try though because sometimes it gets pretty bad around and during my period. It is not always like that - I just never know which months will be bad.

I look forward to getting to know you :)

Hey zoe Igot off my meds last dec and have had a few minor set backs usually surrounding my cycle. I used a web site called the road back to help me with my taper and as much as I hate to admit it I start having troubles when I cut back on my omega 3 oils. I have purchased them from thier reccomended supplier and they work good just know that if you dont get them from them to look for the same amount of dha and epa good luck It can be done with some work

I am working on getting off all the meds, so, I thought I could most likely use support, and ideas on how to stay healthy. I am determined to learn to control my anxiety and panic attacks, as well as, my PTSD. I look forward to getting to know all of you1

hugs,
