I know most people on here are anti medication / Herbs but I wanted to add that I used kava and bacopa when things were rough.

I don't know if they helped me heal quicker or not. I am pretty confident they didn't set me back.

Congratulations.  Could it be that the Remeron is masking you withdrawal symptoms for now?  I'm not hating because I am considering going on something myself.  Can you come back in 6 months or so and update your progress?

1 month update .. I have been feeling pretty good other than having a hard time at my kids graduation yesterday.. Felt very uncomfortable but I had to get up at 4 am for the drive, Iím sure 2 hours sleep didnít help. I know I wouldnít of felt that way pre benzo though. Other than that and some weird thoughts from time to time,things are good. The last of my head pressure went away a week ago also. God bless and quick healing!!

6 Month post jump update.

Thought I would jump on and give a quick update. Things have been good since I last posted, l have a couple annoying things left
and they are so minor that is all they are is a annoyance. Still have some intrusive thoughts every once in a while, and anxiety/adrenaline surge ? not really sure but its happened about once or twice a week. So no big deal they are easy to deal with and i'm sure they will be gone soon. My cognitive skills are back to normal and I attribute running to helping that.  I know you have heard it before but running really helps. I am still on Remeron 15 mg and will be until i'm sx free for a month straight. I was on Xanax 3 mg a day for almost 12 years along with drinking too much, so If [...] return to work and live a normal life after 6 months off its possible you will too and maybe sooner. I will update again in two months.

Good luck and speedy healing !!!

Eric

Wow! I've been scouring this site looking for a story similar to mine to give me hope! And I finally found it! Thank you so much for sharing...also the updates are very beneficial too! I'm so happy for you, [...]! Thank you for showing me there is a light at the end of tunnel of darkness! Amazing news!
Is there anything your found helpful dealing with the tension/pressure headaches? I only have found that wrapping an ice pack around my head to numb it helps a little. How long did your depression last? And did it come back?
Good luck on the [...] of journey!
God bless 🙏
