6 years and 16 days of DP/DR 24/7

27 April 2017 - 02:02 PM

So today marks 6 years and 16 days of continuous, non stop, 24/7 DP/DR. 


I think I've lost all hope of ever recovering. I am so incredibly tired of feeling this way.


Has anyone here recovered after long term chronic DP/DR? If so I'd love to hear your stories and/or tips. I need a pick me up. 

Benzodiazepine Withdrawal, specifically Klonopin.

Looking for more specific information about Benzodiazepine withdrawal. 


I've read a lot of stuff online. Research, personal accounts, etc. . However none of them are going to provide me the same level of insight as asking here, asking people who share the same condition. 


How did it affect you specifically? How long did the worst of the withdrawal symptoms last? How long did it take for you to return to baseline?


I'm dealing with the worst of it at the moment I believe. I'm 53 days in. So about a week less than 2 months in.

As some of you may know I was put on Lamictal/Lamtrogine around the 29th of December. So I've been on it for about a month and some change. 


I was on Klonopin for 2 and a half years, and got off that about a week before I got prescribed Lamictal. So far so good. I never thought in a million years I would be able to function without the benzo, and Lamictal seems to be doing the job.


I'm not at baseline yet as I'm still in the acute phase of Benzodiazepine withdrawal, which usually lasts till about the 3-4 month mark, so I'm not going to review the effects in detail as I don't think it'd be completely accurate.


Just wondering about everyone else's experience with Lamictal, since I can't accurately tell what the full positive effects may be once I'm out of the benzo withdrawal funk. Did it help you? What dose did it help you at? I'm on 100mg once a day right now.
