Some of you may remember me from around Thanksgiving. I was the one who was going to whip this Roxicodone addiction. Well even though I am much better as far as the amount that I take, I am still taking Roxi. I really think that I would have already quit if it wasn't for the following. Some of you may remember, I had a bad reaction to Roxi, I think it is it anyway, where I ended up going to the ER once and passing out once where EMT's got me under control. Both times I was told that I was having Anxiety attacks. Since then I was given Celexa to help me with the attacks. For about a month on the Celexa I did really well as I wasn't having any of the anxiety symptoms but I also suspended my Roxi taper. At this point I was down to half of the Roxi dosage that I was taking and planning on getting off. But I stayed at the sixty mg roxi level a day down from one twenty mg. Then I began to have dizzy spells reoccur and I convinced myself after researching that it was the celexa. I slowly tapered off of the Celexa, and I felt better than I had felt in four months for about a week and a half. No anxiety, no dizziness. Well this sunday, my eighth day without celexa I began the lightheadedness and fog that I refer to as dizziness again. I really believe that the Roxi causes the dizziness even though it never did until thanksgiving after almost a year of taking it. I think the dizziness triggered the anxiety attacks because I had never experienced anything like that before. Can anyone help me make sense of this. I have had every kind of test in the world done on me and nothing has been wrong. No liver, kidney, heart, problems period. Have I just messed with my serotonin too much and it is going to take time to straighten out or what? I feel like anxiety is some of the problem as I felt so good getting on Celexa and Getting off of it. Like somewhere in there I was getting the right amount. The only problem with that is that I was on the lowest dose of ten mg. I have been dizzy now for three days straight. Lightheaded is a better word. The room doesn't spin. I have also been having a mild headache, and at time I have almost an asthma attack. Is this all anxiety or is it something I am eating or do you think this is the roxi. I am going to ask to be put on something else for my back pain and I am still on track to get off of it. I haven't really had a relapse rather I just found a level that I was comfortable with. Now that the celexa is out of my system, I am not comfortable with it anymore. That was the worse part of that stuff. I lost sight of my goal of quitting roxi altogether because the celexa calmed my worries about it. Someone please respond with some advice. I am SO tired of feeling this fogginess.
maybe keep tappering again? I know when you tapper and have mild w/d's the anxiety seems to be the worst of it. It seems I get dizzy for awhile everytime I reduce but then it goes away after I get used to the drop. Maybe talk to the doctor again? I just don't know. Goodluck
thank you guys for being there. I never had Dizziness before roxis. But I will tell you this it seems that much of the time that the dizziness comes back is when I have ran out early and had to go a few days at a lower dosage and bump it back up to normal after a refill. could this be some of it
That would probally be it, I get dizzy every time I have reduced or gone ct, it will go away when your body gets used to the same dose. Maybe you should plan better and try to stick with it, I know it is easier said than done I have the same problem!! Good luck!
