Anti depressants are as dangerous as Fin. How do you really expect to go better while using them Sonic? It’s funny, sorry. Please find something else to combat with your depression.

you didn’t read the whole story.
i started taking meds when i didn’t know it was propecia fucking with my mind.

when i started my regimen, i started tapering off everything, including antidepressants. and i’m still working on it.

Update n.110

I got to the point where i felt happy for no reason but… 2 weeks ago i stopped trazodone (an antidepressant used as a sleep inducer) because now i sleep again and something bad is happening again to my mind. I feel anger, against everyone and everything, expecially against my parents. To be fair, i’ve always had problems with them but now it’s like i can’t think about anything but feeling anger against them.
Did finasteride made you feel this way?

Another important question: did finasteride give you irrational fears?
Examples:

  • i’m scared of getting a job because if i get a job i might lose the job so… i’m scared of losing a job i don’t even have;
  • if a guy asks for a date i feel like that guy is oppressing me and i’ll get stucked in a sticky situation, which is ridiculous;

I know these are irrational fears but are still there.
and i could list even more fears…

in this situation i cannot understand in which percentage is pfs, trazodone withdrawal symptoms or if i’m crazy on my own, really…

update n.111
today i feel happy again, i guess the trazodone discontinuation syndrome is ending.

plus, i’m following the advices of my natural hygiene doctor: i wake up early (6 am), i go for a walk, take 20 minutes sun baths while doing excercises: this boost my mood.

Update n.112
24 days passed since i stopped trazodone and i still have withdrawal symptoms: crying spells, depression, anxiety… my doctor doesn’t trust me, as usual. seems like doctors act this way whatever you were taking… same shit, nothing new here.
i sleep without meds and this is ok, but my sleep is not 100% recovered, i’d say 80%.

Hey Sonic,

I’m in need of a fragrance-free body lotion just for my arms and legs that doesn’t have any chemicals or any crazy shit in it. Could anybody look at the link please and let me know if anything stands out? It’s driving me mad trying to make sure everything is non-androgen or endocrine disrupting, etc.It’s apparently just an organic, fragrance and paraben-free lotion. Any input is MUCH appreciated.

What have you done that has most helped your sleeping? I am having horrible insomnia. Lately, if i’m lucky, i’ll get 2 hours of sleep a night. I can’t continue to function like this.

#297

it’s all written here.

This is why a 300 post blog thread isn’t helpful. If there’s any good information on a particular subject, it’s buried.

update n.113

my regimen had some minor changes.
i’m not having fruit for breakfast, not anymore. i’m having boiled or steamed vegetables: this should be an intermediate passage before completely stop having breakfast. the doctor explained me that between 4.00 am and 12 am our bodies go into detox mode and avoiding food is a way to support this function.

i wake up every morning between 5.30 am and 6 am, meditate, have a cold shower, go taking a 20 minutes sunbath.

i fast once a week.

i avoid masturbation.

sunday i had a cake: wrong idea. had bad insomnia, agitation, anxiety and i still feel not that good. i confirm that grains, sugar and milk are the evil for us.

tinnitus seems to be gone (but came back sunday after the cake).

Good morning everyone, i need some advice.
As you may know, i’m on a raw/paleo diet, which helped sleep again and gave me overall well being.
My regimen was this, initially:

  • wake up early
  • take cold shower
  • fruit for breakfast
  • take 20 minutes sunlight
  • fruit, salad and cooked greens for lunch
  • apples, fennels and celery as pre-work out meal
  • work out
  • fruit, salad, cooked greens and meat/poultry/eggs/fish for dinner
  • 25.000 ui vit D once a week
  • sweet almond oil on my skin (which is very dry).

I was doing good but i’ve been sick for a week now.
I feel again angry, anxious, i have nightmares, agitation, suicidal ideation and so on…

Thinking about what could have gone wrong, looking at any change in this regimen, here’s what’s happened:

  • as the doctor suggested, i switched from fruit to steamed veggies for breakfast
  • lately i ate more raw food than cooked food
  • i put more fruit in the salad
  • i put on teaspoon of raw acacia honey in my salads
  • i ate lot’s of bananas (my favourite fruit)
  • ate lot’s of nuts
  • i noticed i felt bad after eating oranges
  • i noticed i felt very bad after eating a spoon of raw eucaliptus honey instead of the usual acacia honey (acacia honey is known to have more fructose than glucose so it’s good for diabetics)
  • did not exercise
  • di not use almond oil but i used argan oil for my skin
  • started waking up later instead of 6:00 am
  • tuesday i used the dermaroller on my scalp along with some disinfectant
  • since a guy with pfs told me he crashed after vit d (@Demon) , i stopped taking it
  • i write this for last because is very unlikely (i know myself and i know that when my mind doesn’t work fine is because of something not working properly in my my body): worked hard, didn’t see friends.

any idea?
