My daughters dr. took her off of Cymbalta, Klonopin, tramadol

and imitrex COLD TURKEY thinking she was having symptoms

of Serotonin Syndrome.Went to ER due to horrible symptoms

and ER doc said no seritonin syndrome. She is in a desperate

situation with horrible withdrawal symptoms.

Please help!

Horrible. . .

I haven't had withdrawal symptoms. But I bought CBD gummies bears for my intense pain symptoms.

It didn't touch the pain but it relaxed me. I haven't had the need to take 1 Xanax in over 2 weeks.

You can find them online for 19.95 for 20 gummy bears that contain 10mg of CBD each.

Legal in all 50 states. No THC, no high, just a relaxing feeling.
I take 1 a day or 2 a couple of hours before bedtime.

You can find them at a few vape stores that sell e-cigs and supplies but you ll pay alittle more.

Sorry but that's all I can offer, hope she finds help.

OMG!! That's inhumane!

Can you find a doctor who will prescribe them again or let her TAPER OFF!? It's very dangerous to go cold turkey.

All three of those should be tapered. (imitrex is PRN, right?)

Klonopin is probably the biggest issue here.

Oh thank you, Bartender Bonnie,,,will definitely tell her about this.

Yes bc1200, from what i've read, yes, its cymbalta, AND Klonopin. This is a psychiatrist that did this to you. Her other doctors can't believe he did this.

Exactly, Lymetoo! She couldn't get an appt with the dr. that she wants to see until July 18th. Meanwhile I'm scrambling for help with her symptoms. She is suffering greatly.

OH NO!! Both are VERY bad to go cold turkey. I'm currently weaning myself off klonopin and it's no joke. I'm only decreasing by about .125 mg each time...

I hope you can find another dr. that seems more qualified.

I wish i could afford to sue him right now, Lymetoo. He's already done great damage. [Frown]

Thank you Cockapoo1996, I will pass your information on to her.

You daughter's PCP is responsible for caring for her in this situation.

The two meds that she had been taking are very common. The

Her appointment with the new psychiatrist is only in a couple weeks. So it only makes sense for her PCP to continue prescribing the needed meds at the last documented dosages.

That way your daughter will not have to suffer needlessly.

Sammy, she's terrified to start the drugs back given their track record of discontinuing. [Frown]

Yes is is, Lymetoo.. I will certainly give her all of the responses from you all!
