Are you searching for information about a safe Sinequan taper? Looking for a Sinequan withdrawal or how to wean off Sinequan program that really works?
Here are just a few of the many Sinequan withdrawal success stories from people who have used Point of Return's Sinequan withdrawal program to taper off Sinequan.
Prescription psychiatric medications destroyed my dreams and the staff, program, but the products at Point of Return have helped to get my life back on track. My name is Glenn and at the age of 13, I was started on Ritalin for the treatment of ADHD. Over the course of 13 years, my dependence on the medication increased and I was prescribed Adderall and Vyvanse. To combat the anxiety and nervousness caused by the stimulant I tried a range of SSRI medications including Celexa, Paxil, and Lexapro. About two years before I began the Point of Return program I was prescribed Cymbalta.
When I first began taking the stimulants, I hated the way they made me feel and tried to voice my concerns to my family and doctor, but was dismissed because I was 13 and my objections were perceived as defiance. My heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest, I was unable to sleep at night, and I was constantly nervous for the first time in my life. As I mentioned above, in an attempt to combat the anxiety the doctor put me on antidepressants, which seemed to dampen all my emotions.
Over the years I became convinced that I needed the medication to function, as I’d been told. As the years went on the doctor had to prescribe higher doses of Adderall (or Vyvanse depending on what I was taking at the time) to get the same results, which also required higher doses of the antidepressant. It became evident to me when I was about 22 that this was not sustainable. The higher the doses, the less I felt like a human being and the emotions associated with being human. I don’t think I shed a single tear in the 13 years I was on psychiatric medications. Over the next three years I thought about tapering off the medication, but didn’t have the will.
Then when I was in school for Vascular Ultrasound in the spring of 2011 two things happened that gave me the impetus to begin searching for something to get off the medication. First, in one of my classes we performed EKG’s (or ECG), which measure the electrical activity of the heart. My heart rhythm came back abnormal which concerned my instructor. This was extremely atypical for an otherwise healthy physically-fit man in the mid-twenties. The most obvious explanation for this was the medication. The second event that occurred in the spring of 2011 was I failed one of my labs, because I was unable to keep my hands from shaking, due to the effects of the Vyvanse. I’d never been so devastated in my life and at that moment I knew I had to get off the medication. I’d originally been put on the medication to help me with school and to launch a successful career, but the medication destroyed this aspect of my life.
In November of 2011 I contacted Point of Return and spoke with Andrea, who assured me that I could do this. I took the products immediately and noticed a huge difference on my brain function. A few weeks later I went off the Vyvanse and began a 5 month taper off the anti-depressant. Concerned that the stimulants left permanent heart damage, I had another EKG and it came back normal after being off Vyvanse for a couple weeks. This could not have been done without the help of Andrea, Terry, and Alesandra. Connecting with Andrea and Terry every couple of weeks made this possible. Andrea gave me tips that increased the effectiveness of the products and Terry offered support and encouraged me not to rush the process.
I’ve been off the medication for a little over a year and I will be forever grateful for the support and knowledge the Point of Return staff gave me. This past year plus has been the first time in my adult life I’ve been off medication and I appreciate being able to experience the whole range of human emotions. I’ve been able to connect with my wife and children like never before, I’m able to sleep at night, and my verbal communication has improved immensely. If I can heal after 13 years of poisoning my brain and body, you can too. Contacting Point of Return was the best decision I made in my adult life.
Glenn B. (Minnesota) Vyvanse, Cymbalta, (Antidepressants like Sinequan) Withdrawal Success Story
Today I am alive and I can hold my beautiful son in my arms because of Alesandra's help with her products and her compassion. Shortly after my son was born, I suffered from very serious insomnia. The therapist diagnosed me as postpartum depression. I kept refusing to take medication, but as my symptoms got worse and my therapist ever strongly recommending that I take antidepressant and sleeping pills, saying they have NO side effects, I started to take ZOLOFT and LORAZEPAM. Years back, the doctor tried to prescribed me ZOLOFT when he could not find out the cause of the symptoms I had at that time. I could not believe how he handled my case. I turned down his medical suggestion and stopped seeing him. (Well,I run away from his office hurriedly... ) These symptoms naturally disappeared. Much later, I found that all these symptoms and sleep difficulties were coming from a kind of genetic element inherited from my mother, which can be well handled by some natural, holistic ways, WITHOUT any use of medications. Shortly after one year of usage of these psychiatric medications, I started to develop flu like symptoms. I was put on antibiotics which sent me to the emergency room. When I finally found all the horrible symptoms were due to the side effect of the drugs, the doctors suggested to cut the drug by 50%, which sent me to another trip to the Emergency Room. I had serious vomiting and seizure symptoms and all other horrible symptoms all day long and all night long. That was the withdrawals. The doctor immediately put me back to the drugs.
Then I came across POINT OF RETURN. The program helped me how to taper safely and also educated me about food interactions, as well as her ever patient emotional support. I keep using some of her products to this day and I feel great.
The nutrients provided is what my body wanted. NOT THE MEDICATIONS !!!! If there is an evil, psychiatric drugs are the evils. And if there is an angel, Alesandra, her associates and company are the angels. My sincere wish and hope is that the public becomes more aware of the danger of the drugs and also as many people as possible can get out of the ever endless hell of drug addiction safely and continue to feel great.
