Curious to see how many here had taken psych meds before FMS or CFS symptoms started. Whether the symptoms started while still on meds or after discontinuing them. By psych meds I mean: Anti Depressants (ssri's or otherwise), Anti anxiety meds, anti psychotic meds. or any others. I am wondering if there is a correlation. My first FMS symptoms began after attempting to discontinue an anti depressant. That was a few years ago. Every time I would go back on an SSRI the symptoms would get a bit better, but when I attempt to discontinue (tapering or not) the symptoms always get worse. I think these drugs cause more harm than good, and I believe they could very well be responsible for these conditions in the first place. Any thoughts on this?
