Welcome, Arezoo.  It's good that you joined the forum.  Many of us have put our signatures at the bottom of our profiles that include what psyche drugs and other drugs we've taken or are currently taking.  Someone can help you do that.  There's a sticky post at the top with instructions about how to add your signature.

arezoo, that's a long time to have been on Klonopin and SSRI's.  If you join the Protracted Recovery Support board on this forum there are people on there who have been off the drugs for as long as we have.

Welcome to BB Arezoo.

 

I was on klonopin and SSRIs from 1985-2013.  After that I was taken off CT by doctors and I have never recovered.

 

From  2013 to now = approx. 9 years. That is a very long time. How have you been coping? Why were you put on the drugs initially, and what symptoms do you struggle with daily?

I was put on klonopin for anxiety disorder.  Then I saw these wonderful commercials on tv for ssri’s and asked my doctor for them and he was happy to comply.  Going off cold turkey has permanently damaged my cns.  I have all kinds of neurological symptoms as well as severe anxiety.  Over the 9 years I have had improved but I still suffer.

How is your quality of life? Is this something you can live with for the remainder of your life? You take no drugs for anything now, correct?
