Hello, I was hoping for advice post serotonin syndrome. I have familiarity with numerous medications. However, one still trusts drs. The lockdown has added stress to my life being furloughed, having elderly parents with health concerns, siblings that are vulnerable due to weakened immune systems and stressors being in such close quarters with my husband working from home.
My psychiatrist prescribed 37.5 mg of Effexor for 4 days, but my stomach couldn’t handle the side effects. I was switched to Zoloft that day, but I wanted 23 hours to take the 25 mg Zoloft.
However, I began showing signs of serotonin syndrome. I had goosebumps, high blood pressure, dilated pupils, 103 fever, tremors, felt like I was in a tunnel, etc.
I was administered something to block my serotonin and given klonopin.
Nearly, 48 hours later, I’m left with a .25 klonopin to take as needed.
Any ideas on when it might be safe to exercise or any recommendations on natural ways to help with this disaster of a situation.
I lift three days a week and cardio three days a week on the norm.
Thanks so much
