I think my dp got worse when I stopped prozac, I went cold turkey. everything was fine for about 2-3 weeks, then it was worse than before. Id have panic attcks once in a while. anw its been now 1.5 yrs since i stopped meds but i feel my dp is still there cuz of the insomnia. it makes things worse..

Thats how i felt when I first experienced severe dpdr. I remember those feelings and emotions. I felt so lost , I was devastated cuz I didnt know what to do. I felt hopeless and alone. Not my bf nor my family would understand what I was going through. I tried looking for psychiatrists cuz I believed it was a severe mental disorder but i gave up on it- its so complicated here to get a psychiatrist . Even my familt doctor wouldnt understand. I did and redid my blood tests, ctscan, everythinf came normal.
I remember walking to work or going anywhere, Id be soo scarred, Id feel that im going to faint on the street. Also my vision was so weird, as if i was seeing through a glass. Im not sure if you have the same.. I literally would run home cuz thats where i would feel safe and iwouldnt have the dpdr attacks. While taking metro/buses i would close my eyes cuz i was just terrified of looking anywhere, the surrounding was so unreal- i thought i was losing it. I couldnt even explain to others what i feel.
At night when i would try to fall asleep, my thoughts were running like crazy in my mind, I thought i was in alice in wonderland. I would like im fallin through an invisible hole somewhere so i would open my eyes and hear my heart beat, i was afraid to fall asleep.
I have never felt like this before but after doing so much research, I came to a conclusion that it has to be anxiety that has caused this. With insomnia it made things worse. The most important thing is to believe that this is just a temporary state, and it ll eventually go away. Keep telling your mind its normal and that u hust having anxiety and it ll go away. Its hard but u must convince urself. If you going to think its more severe you will make your anxiety much worse and it be a vicious cycle.
Once anxiety levels are lower, the dpdr will start to fade away. you gotta stay positive!

I just started acupuncture. I heard it helps with insomnia, perhaps it will help with dpdr. I will let you know. Last week was my first session, so lets see in 3 weeks or so. 🙂

In Topic: Any good effective herbal or synthetic alternatives to benzodiazepines and phenibut that can be taken long term as supplements for anxiety and panic?

I am also struggling with DPDR. Based on my analysis it was anxiety induced. I have taken Prozac before for about 8 months and then stopped it abruptly and i think it make things worse. Since then I said I dont wanna go back to meds so trying different herbs and natural remedies.
I also have insomnia problems- the funny part is I can sleep 10h on the weekend but on the weekdays i cant sleep. Im trying different herbs at the moment, so far i started with some adaptogens. I take Reishi which i find it helps to reduce the anxiety a bit, I also take fish oil but not sure if it helps. I e heard also ashwagandha is good and rhodiola, havent tried them yet but they r on my list. I also take multivitamins.

Have you guys tried any adaptogens?
