Want to quit anxiety drugs

I am an Indian male 58.I have been suffering from anxiety problems for about 25 years. So far lots of anti anxiety drugs have been taken and they have posed severe problems. Many problems like indigestion, blood pressure, sleep, lethargy are rocking me round the clock. It seems that so long I live I have to take these drugs. Hence I have determined to stop these medicines and start homeopathy for better health and confidence.

Are there homeopathy remedies to help me quit those anti anxiety drugs those have shattered my total well being?

Help in this regard is earnestly solicited.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
day 1 to day 3
Nux Vomica 200 twice a day.

day 4 to day 15
Nux Vomica 200 in evening.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

I am sure you know you cannot just stop your medications instantly.

You have to ask your dr for a protocol of reducing the doses week by week and do this in a safe manner.

Even tho you got a prescription you are going to have side effects from reducing. And then the original reason you took them will come up and you need the remedy for that.

This is a delicate balancing act and
Forewarned is forearmed.

What are the meds you are taking and how long?

Respected Dr. Kadwa

Thanks a lot for your kind suggestions. I will start from tomorrow what you have hinted at. One thing I want to know if you don't mind please, shall I not have to suffer the withdrawal problems as soon as I withdraw the drugs starting Nux Vomica 200?

Actually Sir, I have tried to withdraw a few times but the withdrawal problems was so acute that I had to leave the thought of withdrawing and went on taking those pills that have caused total destruction to my health.

Have a very good day.

You need a reduction plan from whoever prescribed the meds.

Dear Simone717

Thanks a lot for your kind suggestions.My doctor has prescribed me Pari 20 in the morning and Maxgalin ER75 at night. I have been taking these drugs for a year.

Before hand I took various drugs such as Impramine, Amitryn, Clonil, Cipralex and so on for about 25 years. According to doctors I have OCD and GAD hence I have to go on gulping those pills so long I breathe.

I am really exhausted. My health has to bear the brunt of those medications. I am suffering from numerous problems. I want to free myself from the grip of those drugs. I want to breathe the air of vibrant health. I want to be the man that I was when I was not under the evil spells of those anti-psychotic drugs.

Can't you lead me to the arena of total health once again?

You need a very experienced person to guide on this.

1. You need your entire case taken in detail.
2. You talk to your dr about reduction plan. It is a shock to your system to go cold turkey and not safe.
3. Generally one goes with something like nux to clear overdoses of drugs but at same time you cannot just quit the drugs.

You must be prepared for some withdrawal but you want that to be as gentle as possible.

It is a step by step process based on reactions.

You really need a homeopath who is able to monitor how this plays out and would be best to do face to face or Skype.

Can you see a private homeopath?

Lots of private practitioners are there in our area. I can visit any, no problem.

Can you throw light on the issue whether any homeopathy medicine is there to assist while I am busy with the process of tapering obviously gently?

Nux is the main one I see used.
But I have only seen it used within
A time frame.

For example: all drugs going to be stopped within a week or 10 days.

That is why you need the reduction protocol. And while doing protocol
You are not taking remedies but instead taking herbs to build up your system that will not cause a problem as you reduce meds.

Best to find a homeopath who has had these type cases.

I have posted details titling "Want Relief From Allergy Problems". Please cast a glance at it and brood over the matter.
