    I tried cymbalta and had major panic attacks. i don't want to be on any psych meds. My memory is starting to return after quitting them and I feel better and happier without them. I want to try and live my life without them for awhile. I have tried just about every SNRI, SSRI there is. Nothing diminishes my PTSD. So fuck them. I don't need them. If they work for others than right on. That's not my place to judge. I just know I was not doing well on mine. I feel better off of them.

    Every body is different and after 13 years of using them I am taking a break. I want to see what I feel like off of them and so far I feel much better. Mental clarity is what I'm aiming for. I've lost a lot of memory from them and my drug usage. Time to get it back. I want to remember life. I want to make new memories and I can't do that using them. So psych free for me for now.

    Hey Mel don't stress about having to use a few pills for your back. My back pops out everyonce in a while and without heroin I'll have no choice but to go to the doc for Tamazepam and Codeine other wise I'd spend a week lying on the floor in pain. It's about getting the right amount of meds to allow you to function but not catch a buzz.
    As to the nightmares and shit I can relate, sometimes I wake up feeling like I've been fighting Mike Tyson all night, feel worse than when I went to bed.
    Hope your situation changes and you can get that back op done soon

    Hey. I've noticed that coffee keeps making a regular appearance throughout this thread...now I know everyone is different, but I found that in the 3 or 4 weeks after I quit methadone, coffee was actually precipitating those feelings of anxiousness, panic, uncomfortableness... just generally creating anxiety. It took me way too long to realise that quitting the caffeine actually helped - I am a total coffee addict and cannot usually start my day without it - but when I finally put two and two together, the difference was phenomenal. Maybe give it a try? I know it's tough!

    Edit - damn, I just saw your post from the other day, regarding your irritation towards people going on about coffee! I feel like a bit of a prat now. However I will leave my post as it was, save to say I don't wish to add to that irritation. I also felt that coffee was what kept me sane, but during opiate withdrawal/ PAWS, things change a little. I quit the caffeine for about two weeks until the worst of it was over, and the anxiety abated significantly.... but don't worry, now I'm back on the espressos like a mofo! Maybe consider it. Sorry if any offence has been caused by way of this post - if it makes a difference, it came from a good place.
