I can't tolerate my antidepressants anymore.

Posted by Lamdage22 on May 14, 2021, at 2:37:20

Hey guys,

I was on 75mg Trazodone and 37.5 Venlafaxine. The problem now is that I get side effects that I attribute to too much Serotonin. Heart Racing, heart pounding more than usual, anxiety, headache. Right after I dose the antidepressants. Reducing them helped. I am at 25mg Trazodone now for a few days. My best guess is that nutrition increased my Serotonin and now it is too high for me to tolerate any serotonergic drugs. When I reduced Trazodone in the past, I got depressed pretty much immediately. Not this time. That supports the notion that there is more Serotonin now.

Yeah, I actually would be happier on less drugs, so I don't really want to change my nutrition. I think if I didn't need any antidepressants, that would be awesome. Not sure if I should call my Dr. Maybe I will shoot an email.

I think I can get away with weaning off of the antidepressants without too much mood trouble.

I don't really know what I am looking for here. Maybe some reassurance. I shouldn't run into too much trouble as the doses were low and I am not stopping cold turkey, right? Besides, it seems that my Serotonin signaling is higher now, so yeah, that too should prevent withdrawals, right?

Ultimately, it is my call though. I just hope the Dr won't get angry with me. I surely don't want to back off with the nutrition, just so I can tolerate them again. Thats probably what I will be told if I go to the Dr. He is extremely biased against supplements. I think what I experience is something positive. If you don't need them, you shouldn't take them, right? And I am not doing anything crazy nutrition wise. The doses are reasonable. This may actually be something positive.

He kind of accepts that I do stuff on my own as long as I don't do anything crazy that could lead to serious trouble. Surely, I wouldn't do the same with my Neuroleptics.

Seroquel 700mg
Zyprexa 22.5mg
Trazodone 75mg
Venlafaxine 37.5mg
Metformin 2000mg
Lithium 225mg
