Hello there from habari


I am a bereaved guy (ex medic) who has complex PTSD and anxiety following child sex/physical abuse at a boarding school.

After my wife died, my rock was gone and I am socially phobic, travel phobic and have severe anxiety.

A good friend psych put me on mega doses of diazepam pregabalin at night and added quetaipine and then mirtazipine.

Yes I started sleeping but right through from 9pm til 4 pm except for loo breaks.

These meds are not without long terms effects and so after 3 years I am using Dr Ashton's reduction regime. It's living hell most days and talking treatment hasnt helped much.

Will post thread on Quetiapine withdrawal elsewhere-)

Best wishes to all
