Over 60 help and support.
« on: June 26, 2017, 02:29:34 pm »
Hi everyone
I am 61 ( can hardly believe it )  I was thinking that it would be good to talk to people who are 60 or over to see if we have similar symptoms/ problems etc.
I know that we shouldn't really compare because everyone is different but I think that it would be interesting.
I suppose that I am also worried about going through this horrible experience at 61.
Any thoughts or feelings would be great!
Thanks

I am 65 and getting close to the end of my taper. In your signature lines it looks like you are done tapering and not taking benzos, is that right?

I'm 63 and am 31.5 months out.  Still in it with six symptoms.  Much better than I was, but not done yet.

Thanks for the replies.
Yes I had my last Diazepam of 1mg about November 2016 . I was on Sertaline too which I tapered too quickly. I had no idea or I would have stayed on the Sertaline( Zoloft) longer.

What are your symptoms?
