> For me, stopping escitalopram wasn't exactly a choice. I felt that it was putting me at greater risk to myself. Also, I don't exactly have the mental health support (here in Canada) to work through such side effects. I am at ~ 4/10 right now. I can't exactly tolerate something takes me down to 0/10.

Hi Linkadge:

I don't mean to be a ball-buster..lol..but why can't you get a referral to a psychiatrist? Please don't mind my honesty...but sometimes you have to do *everything* and *anything* to get to an endpoint, such as a shrink. Why not get admitted to the hospital?? Do *whatever* it takes for your happiness and survival. AS I said before...you may have a more complicated diagnosis. Maybe need mood stabalizers...antipsychotics...with your antidepressant.

Like Scott said...you can't take these meds prn. It may take 3 or so months before you reach a homeostasis. I've been on the same complex set of meds for my bipolar II for over seven years now.
I make adjustments, with my pdoc, from time to time. But, that's just the way it is...I accept it pretty much no problem. No, I am not in bliss happy, nor never anxious, and have relapses. But, I have also made some great progress in my life.

So....just some thoughts...you can do this..and I remember that great saying.."Happiness is not a fish that you can catch." But, steadiness and calm, more so.

Just IMHO...
