7 months today with a great window all day! What a nice suprise for me. Felt good mentally however physically still not there yet or afraid to push it. In the last month have started with diet changes. Dropped dairy products, most all red meat, all nightshade fruits and veggies. It seems to be helping alot. I have been making a special crock pot chicken, cabbage, carrots, onions, green bean and peas dish for myself daily to clear skin problems and it’s working quite well. Ad salt pepper garlic and a couple of chicken bullion cubes and it’s pretty tasty as well. I’m looking forward to more of these good days, what a long strange trip it’s been!! I choose not to fill any of physic drugs thE doc wanted to try on me in the last 7 months and now I’m glad I don’t have them to taper.
15 years Xanax multiple fast tapers

Home tapers cutting pills

Two year slow taper finished July 11 17

Does anyone experience symptoms after being out in the sun?
I have a theory...

Considering that any tiny bit of alcohol on things like deodorant, soap, perfume can cause a noticeable effect on me. Should we use GABAA Antagonists to balance things out? Or does natural glutamate from food already helps? Like, when people drink Alcohol and they have a flare up that last for days, they heal that flare up from eating???
what do you think?

I think you should look for soaps, and deodorants that don’t contain alcohol. Read the back of the products and look. Or call the 800 # listed on the back. And give up the perfumes since most do contain alcohol. Maybe some do not, but I don’t know since I don’t wear any myself.
And for heavens sake, don’t take any gaba a antagonists “to balance things out.” You’re off the benzos and gabapentin, so just get on with life. “Gaba antagonists are drugs that inhibit the action of gaba and produce stimulant and convulsive effects. They”re used mainly for counteracting overdoses of sedative drugs.” (Slight paraphrasing from Wikipedia; you can read this yourself.)
Natural food with glutamate is a good thing no matter what the circumstances. And many people who have withdrawn from benzos can never drink alcohol again while many others can. It depends on numerous factors-genetics, how hard withdrawl was, number of withdrawl attempts, number of “brain meds” involved and more. It’s really an individual thing as we’re all different people with different Central Nervous Systems.
So your “theory” is what exactly?
Like the failed owner of Benzo Buddies, BALA is delusional re: active membership i.e. the majority of BALA (or Benzo Buddies) members are not active, don’t do anything except sit and moan 24/7 about how doctors fucked them over.
BALA is even giving away money and still can’t get more than a handful of addicts (less than 1% of their tiny membership) to fill out the form.
I wonder if, out of desperation, the BALA gurus will start sending in fake complaints to the FDA?
Welcome to the real world kooks. Stay on your meds.
Can amoxicillin cause withdrawal? Anyone's symptoms gotten better on antibiotic?
« on: December 26, 2016, 09:16:07 pm »
I have a question for you all: is it possible to suffer withdrawal from antibiotics? Specifically amoxicillin taken solidly three times a day (500 mg) for four months?
Also, has anyone’s withdrawal gotten drastically better or nearly disappeared while taking an antibiotic? Like, can amoxicillin treat/cure benzodiazepine withdrawal?
I just need to rule that out as a possible explanation for what I am experiencing (explainined in my last post).
Thank you so much!
