Do you still have agoraphobia? Was that from the benzos or did you have that before? Thanks for sharing and congrats!

I am honest. I think you just replaced your drug...

You will get to the same point when you quit with Lexapro... Try it and let's see what happens.

Exactly. I hate these "success stories" where people just get polydrugged and call themselves healed.

I hate them too. I don't consider these as "success stories".

This Success Story meets BB's criteria which are:
-benzodiazepine-free for at least two months;
-(mostly) recovered from your experience;
-feeling positive about the future and this should be reflected in your Success Story.

Each of us may have a different personal idea of what a success story should look like and we're entitled to our opinions.  But the fact is that this success story meets the forum's criteria.  Our mission is to provide non-judgmental mutual support so let's please stop making negative comments on this thread.

Agreed. The several comments above are such an awful thing to say to this person who survived hell. Who cares how they made it through, they did it. Congratulations to Natsuka. I hope sheís living life to the fullest.

How do we keep the faith when healing is not in sight?

"5 years later itís 2019, Iím still currently on 10mg lexapro but from the moment I started, about 4 weeks later my life took a complete U turn".

This gave me hope. I am diagnosed with anxiety/depression after tragic life event, and starting Prozac for one month now and tapering Xanax. My doc says 4-5 month Xanax use is not addicting on a low dose, but i have doubts.

I hope the Prozac onboarding comes soon as I am confused if what I am feeling are Benzo withdrawals or Prozac initial side effects. I had memory of taking Prozac for some months decades ago.
