Default Coming off anit-depressants and have a question

I have been slowly lower my dosage (with dr.s approval)of my anti depressant. But since Friday, the first day of not taking it at all, I'm having flu like symptoms, fuzzy and light head, dizzy and out of body like.

I was wondering if anyone here has any advice, either because they came off too. maybe some diet/vitamin supps. that would help ease the transition.

thanks so much.

ya my moms going threw the same thing right now its somethin u cant really do anything about its like your brain is craving it ya kno thats why anti-depressants arent something i would use until the last possiblity but i would try taking some vitamin C like 4-5 grams and maybe just get some bedrest for the next couple dayz at least thats what my moms doin right now
i hope u feel better

Nate's correct, bedrest and vitamin C will give you a boost, so your body will acclimate more easily, I also suggest drinking plenty of water. If you do get headaches, take some ibuprofen or whatever. Eat healthy, drink plenty of water, and get rested up - hope you feel better soon!
