Surgery

May 9 I’m supposed to have surgery on my left ankle, and they will be using general anesthesia to sedate me during the surgery. I’m 12.5 months out since jumping and still very symptomatic. Cog fog, headaches, balance issues seem to be the most intolerable of my current symptoms, and I’m worried that the drugs they use to sedate me will set me back and potentially make me worse. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with surgery during the recovery phase and if it had any adverse effect on their brain? I will cancel the surgery if needed. I don’t want any setbacks.

My dad had the same symptoms as the dad posted here. He never takes drugs, and it was a hospital visit for dehydration that turned into pneumonia and he died. He was a doctor and always told me as a kid, if you want to kill yourself, just check into a hospital. So that warning turned out to be true. BTW, I believe he was beginning to suffer from Dementia even before he went to the ER…..And his wife was his advocate, as well as an NR. Sometimes I think MiA is bit much.

I concur. Sometimes MiA is way too much. There are a lot of professionals there speaking out about the dangers of these meds, but some of these professionals used to be conventional psychiatrists who prescribed a lot of these same medications in the past, and then got disillusioned with their field and adopted a different stance. It is good to see differing opinions, but this is all way too confusing to an average person in a situation like this. Some MiA articles sure cause a lot of cognitive dissonance in both doctors and patients. I guess, I just don’t like the absolutist stance on issues such as medications.

Heck, even Dr. Peter Breggin used to prescribe Librium during his psychiatric residency. Obviously, even he must have believed that psychopharmacology worked before he became medication skeptical…..

I notice a trend of a lot of antidepressant bashing over at the MiA. I wonder if that is because there is a little less stigma and controversy about antidepressants then about some other psychotropics. I don’t advocate antidepressant use, but I find it interesting how much antidepressant backlash there has been in the last 20 years, while the other meds were hardly being even mentioned. While so many were bashing Prozac and Zoloft, people were being prescribed Lamictal, Trileptal, Risperdal, Tegretol, Zyprexa, Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin, Gabapentin, Seroquel. Just saying…..

It makes me wonder how many people looked at the anti-depressant backlash, and kept thinking “Why should I take antidepressants when anti-anxiety meds have been there for years, and I am more anxious than depressed?” It is very easy to get into that sort of mindset. I think Robert Whitaker correctly points out that people are terribly confused about psych meds due to all these different schools of thought.

Mad in America & Benzo Buddies team up to attack doctors, spread lunacy

“My father and mother, Genevieve, had a happy marriage of 39 years, until our mom (13 years his junior) passed away in 2009 of a brain tumor, likely brought on by the vaccines she’d received over the years, and the root canals, and the mercury fillings, and the nutrient-depleted food that she (like most Americans) had ingested over the years…

This is something that everyone with access to medical care should read. A very sad story and a reminder that we are all still vulnerable to another medical mess if we cannot speak for ourselves in the emergency room setting. I think we all need to get medical alert bracelets and always wear them as i dont see any other way to make sure that this never happens again…

like me. i am addicted to 20 mg librium and 30 mg domperidone and 15 mg mirtazapine. domperidone, for me, crosses the blood-brain barrier and i have failed quitting it twice. it works as an antipsychotic for me.

i was an alcoholic for 10 years and stopped drinking 6 months ago. i’ve fallen into depression every month since. but my current episode of depression beats all expectations. i have been depressed for 20 days and with unrelenting depression.

i met a psychiatrist today. he wants me to start lamictal and increase my benzio to 30 mg librium. my foot!

i will die depressed than take any other psychiatric medicine.

please help!

Good article LorazepamFree. I ran into one psychiatrist who incorrectly diagnosed me based on an intake form, even before talking to me, and immediately recommended a high amount of anti-depressants. He said I had to get sicker to get better and called himself “Nurse Ratchet” (like the one in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest movie) and would strictly monitor whether I was taking the drugs. He didn’t care about the fact that I was in tolerance withdrawal from benzos. I was stunned and resisted, so he got mad and stamped his feet and told me to listen to my husband (he was stunned, too). Unbelievable-never saw him again Fortunately, my other counselors have been compassionate and helpful. One of them said that “Nurse Ratchet” shouldn’t be practicing. I hope sites like madinamerica can help bring awareness to patients and providers alike.

Mad in America: Naked female driver leads cops on chase through two Michigan counties

SAGINAW, MI — Nearly 700 miles from home and stark naked, a 48-year-old Georgia woman led state troopers on a two-county chase at speeds of more than 100 mph Saturday morning.

The chase, which lasted around 15 minutes but covered more than 25 miles of Interstate 75, ended with the woman uninjured and taken to a hospital for evaluation, said Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser.

“We’re not sure if this is a drug-related incident or a medical condition,” Kaiser said.

The chase began shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, on southbound I-75 near Buena Vista Township when a vehicle passed a trooper at speeds of more than 100 mph, Kaiser said.

The woman disregarded police attempts to signal her over and continued at high speeds until she reached the Vienna Road exit near Clio, Kaiser said.

She headed eastbound on the road, saw multiple police vehicles waiting there and then attempted to head back onto I-75, northbound this time, he said.

At the northbound I-75 on-ramp, a state trooper initiated a tactical driving maneuver, spinning the vehicle out and sending it into a light pole, then a ditch, enabling police to prevent the vehicle from driving off, Kaiser said.

Officers reported the woman was naked and not making sense when they apprehended her.

The woman, police officers and other drivers on the road were not injured, Kaiser said. Although there were near misses by the woman as she wove in and out of traffic at high speeds, Kaiser said she did not hit any vehicles.

At this time, police do not know the woman’s connection to the area. The incident remains under investigation.

So this weekend I was very stupid and tried medical marijuana (~15mg). Not completely sure why as I’ve never liked pot before and this was my first time having anything pot related in years. I chalk it up to being young and stupid and a little escapist. It gave me such a bad panic attack I went to the ER. Since I was hyperventilating, vomiting, etc and couldn’t control the panic on my own I was given a single Ativan dose, probably 2mg.

My question is- if there is a “hangover” from the weed, how long until it goes away and/or when will the w/d symptoms from the Ativan reach their max point?

I’ve been feeling horrible and it’s about two days out. Slept one of the two nights, I’m up again tonight with anxiety and nausea/heartburn. It’s not the worst w/d symptoms I’ve had but I work now and it’s getting debilitating. I took tomorrow off and now I’m wondering if I need to take the week as well… I know my chance of some of the more life threatening symptoms from w/d are low but my anxiety just won’t let me believe it :/

Edited for typos 🙂

“Anti-psychiatry is a pseudoscience that is based on denying the existence of mental illness…”

“Anti-psychiatry is a pseudoscience that is based on denying the existence of mental illness, rejecting the efficacy of mainstream science-based treatment and demonizing medical doctors who specialize in psychiatry. The anti-psychiatry movement is very diverse and include individuals with very different views on economy and liberty and not all anti-psychiatry proponents agree with all three core beliefs.”
