I've had the same thing happen. If I miss the odd day I'll usually be fine but there have been times I've had to miss 5 days in a row or something and that will come back to haunt me. Panic attacks are no joke, especially when you don't know that's what you're having. And the brain shivers always make me think I'm having a ****ing stroke.

But hey the payoff is that I don't obsess over suicide every waking minute when I take my prozac so *thumbs up* worth it

What do brain shivers feel like? I think I've had it when starting Steraline, I stood up, felt stabbing pains in my chest and then my head went blurry in waves and it felt like that feeling when you drop on a roller-coaster and your stomach is upside down. It didn't matter whether I stood up and walked around or sat down with my head on the table and closed my eyes, it was constantly there. Feeling like I was dropping into a pit of doom.

I'm sure it's what people describe as a brain shiver.

Yeah that pretty much sums it up, though they occur as more of a flash for me rather than being constant. Kind of a head rush like you've stood up too fast, vision gets blurry, stomach drops - it will stop me dead in my tracks, and then it passes.

Cheers. Hopefully if I wean myself off them I can avoid this. Really don't want it again.

In 2014 he was arrested trying to rob a gas station and would have gotten six years in prison but was accepted in our states drug court program. Suspended sentence but he had to stay sober for the length of his sentence. He graduated last month. We were and are very proud of him.

Before he graduated he expressed fear that being off the leash, as in not drug tested weekly, would tempt him into doing drugs again. Well, he admitted to us that he's been getting drunk and smoking weed. That's not the end of the world but he told us he stopped taking his medication, lithium for his bi-polar disorder, so it wouldn't interfere with the booze and weed.

Well, he stopped taking it for too long and now he's found himself in a manic episode. He's a completely different person. He lost his job. He's dressing like goddamn Johnny Depp. He's seeing his ex girlfriend. He's constantly agitated and his decision making is minute by minute.

It's stressing me the f*ck out. Luckily his doctors are on it and are trying to regulate him but I might have like two weeks of crazy to deal with until then. Luckily we don't live together but sh*t is upsetting. He was doing so well.
I have honestly wondered how your brother has been getting on, Iím sorry that heís stopped taking his meds in what seems like a bit of a step backwards for him. Iíll have my fingers crossed that his doctors manage to get him back on them.




In the past year or two Iíve really been struggling with anxiety to the point I constantly think Iím about to have a stroke or something as serious will happen to me. I quite often have panic attacks about it. Especially after Iíve been drinking etc so Iíve cut right down on that for my own sanity. I canít handle the horrible thoughts constantly. Itís not just my own health I worry about, itís my boyfriend, my family and any pets I have too. Docs prescribed me Propanolol? Which stops the physical symptoms of anxiety but it doesnít help stop the worrying or panicking so I just stopped taking them.

Propranolol worked but gave me a sore stomach in the middle of the night.

I might ask for some again and see if I still have that problem.

I'm also supposed to stop taking nicotine when on that as well apparently. Accelerator and brake pedal on at the same time.

I take a pills too

I just worry about how young people are getting prescribed all this stuff

Like Iíve never had any kind of neurotransmitter testing or anything

No one has ever looked at or tested my brain or nervous system itís just like hereís your drugs

At my age Iím kind of like less worried about it but Iíve already made it through my 20ís 30ís and 40ís you know

They wanted me on adhd meds as a kid (Ritalin)and I refused to take them now I think I made the right call. I believe it was healthy for my thoughts to be jumping around. I was figuring all kinds of **** out just in my own way.

Donít take this the wrong way. Iím not giving advice. Iím saying mental health care needs to catch up. The brain is probably the part of the body they look at the least and that seems ****ed up considering itís your brain and all.

They don't just prescribe stuff willy nilly over here. It was about three years until I was prescribed any medication, I had already done several lots of counselling and talking therapy. Once I was prescribed something it became easier to get it in future but there are hoops to jump through. It's very difficult to get repeat prescriptions also for things like SSRIs. Mine is on repeat now, but that took six months or so and they don't like giving you them without appointments.
