Hello everyone! My name is Kyle. I started this forum as a way to create a safe haven for people going through discontinuation symptoms and withdrawals from antidepressants. I myself have suffered a enormous amount after getting off of 9 years of antidepressants, which i began taking when I was 16. After the gruesome side-effects i experienced while on Cymbalta. I started experncing the withdrawal symptoms after starting my my tapering which was counting counting beads at the time. I thought there HAD to be a better way to do this. So I decided to expend some of the OCD energy (which I've never experienced prior to antidepressants) I was experiencing towards supplement research, specifically Nootropics. After researching for almost a year, 4+ hours a day (I have a lot of down time at work lol) and countless tests; I found the best natural herbs and supplements that worked for me. I decided to create this community not only as a safe haven, but as a way for like minded individuals to talk about managing the symptoms with both life style changes and supplements. These two combined, I believe are a potent and essential part of recovering from antidepressant use. Please create a thread and introduce yourself! See you around the board 🙂
