It would be wise to do this with a doctor who is willing to support you in the process.
It would sometimes travel from my brain to other parts of my body.
It was slightly painful but had a very real, disturbing sense of unnaturalness about it, yet wasn’t painful at all. I still remember what I experienced withdrawing from antidepressants to this day.
If you take an SSRI, you will want to take either 5-HTP or tryptophan.
If you take atypical antidepressants or SNRIs, you will want to take either tyrosine, DLPA, or l-phenylalanine along with 5-HTP or Tryptophan if needed.
I was forced to continue taking it or become a vegetable. Not sick as in mentally sick, but I caught a bad cold or virus. Back then, I didn’t care and I took a lortab to help.
I had to wait until there was a few weeks of no responsibilities to try again. Lortab is not necessary to get off an antidepressant.
The first 2 weeks were insane, then it was clear skies from there. I got the occasional “Brain Zap” for about two months (I capitalize the word on purpose as I respect its ability to mystify me).
I got so used to them I remember realizing one day as I froze in the hallway and said out loud, “I haven’t felt one of those brain zaps in about a week! If you are on a high dose or have been on an antidepressant for a long time, you will want to take things slower.
Common SSRIs include: Research your antidepressant and find out which neurotransmitters it is affecting. Canola oil contains too many omega-6 fats and is inflammatory, both of which can cause depression.
