I’m not...there are three psychiatric medications that immediately presented as toxic to me:
  • Effexor (venlafaxine) - debilitating nausea, feeling of about to vomit, constantly watering mouth, lasted 5 days until I bailed
  • Lexapro (escitalopram) - constant gagging and retching, inability to eat any solid food, lasted 72 hours until I bailed
  • Zoloft (sertraline) - made me so spacey it was unsafe to drive, zero short-term memory, depersonalization, derealization, stopped after 2nd dose

Could you be more specific or give me an example of what you mean?

I thought that same thing the other day, so I decided to do something about it. I realized that untreated, it would eventually lead to my undoing, with grave consequences, including the potential of my own death.


Cheers,
Ian
