Common Questions and Answers about Citalopram and mushrooms

I am 21 years old and drink alcohol daily (atleast 6 beers in a usual day) and use recreational drugs on and off, usually just small amounts of cannabis and sometimes mushrooms and lsd. I also recently kicked a serious meth amphetamine addiction (9 months ago) and am on several medications as a result of psychotic episodes/depression and anxiety caused by excessive meth use and staying up for days sometimes weeks at a time.
or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind. Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety course...it while irritating, maybe even maddening...it is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....
) , pregabalin, beta blockers, venlafaxine (took away all emotions), lamotragine, and am currently on fluvoxamine maleate (200mg a day), and prn lorazepam and diazepam. Magic mushrooms help loads and take it all away through the 'trip' and for couple days afterwards, but as far as I'm aware, psychlobin isn't licenced?? Do u have any info/thoughts on glutamate-modulating drugs (eg riluzole)?
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Only once again did I return to the empty state - and this was after I tried magic mushrooms (never, ever, ever again!!). It was as if everything was equally significant, and the world was an even shade of grey. This time, however, it took me less than a week to get out of it. I watched a film which played Beethoven's 9th with an inspirational, motivational theme, and I thought "I am that person who feels, who believes in this contrast, I am not empty!".
I was then worrying all the time when it might happen again. eventually i was put on citalopram 10mg about a month and a half ago.. i took them reluctantly.. i really didn't want to take them because i was like 'i'm taking antidepressants, what has my life come to?' i felt awful for taking them. It turns out taking them was the best thing i ever did!
I took magic mushrooms this one time 12 years ago and this noise wouldn't stop. It's not painful but it's very uncomfortable. I think maybe because it wasn't normal and I couldn't control it. I never did mushrooms again but this thundering didn't go away. It would reoccur monthly or so. Sometimes it would go for 5 seconds , pause , go for 5 , pause and keep going for a few minutes and that would be it that month.
Assuming it was only the effects of the drugs i had my first few panic attacks in teen and early 20's years from smoking weed and doing mushrooms....At the time i just brushed it off as part of the drug experience. Recently though after sticking with only booze as I got older ( found now also because it calms my undercurrent of anxiety) Ihad a massive panic attack say 30 hrs or so after a long night of drinking...
I am having extremely debilitating anxiety right now. Mild chest discomfort but I focus in on it so much that it becomes unbearable. I am always aware of my heartbeat and like above I focus in to it where it just drives me insane. I am expereincing undescribable levels of discomfort and I just dont understand whats wrong with me. My heart rate throughout the day is 90-100 bpm resting, and it shoots up even when I do simple tasks such as walking.
I also have that annoying warm sensation that is in my right leg and it moves from my ankle and up about 4inches and seems to be very frequent. I too thought it was a little heater under the seat of my car that was warming my leg-but the heat was not on. Also, the balls of my feet are burning along with this sensation. I need to know what this is?
Last May, after a weekend of beer pong and partying, I woke up on the following Monday and instantly felt dizzy and out of breath, like I was going to pass out or fall over. I didn't know what it was. I thought maybe I had hit my head during the previous weekend's festivities. A couple days later I still had a dizzy feeling so I had my ladyfriend drive me to the ER for fear of having post-concussion syndrome or something. They gave me something for my nerves (Loreazapam maybe?
Today I panicked and called the paramedics who came and did a 12 lead and they said normal sinus with one ectopic and so I didn't go back to the ER. I had a normal echo 3 years ago. I already don't eat caffeine or sugar. Please reassure or sympathize with me. I'm going insane and have no idea what's causing this out of the blue. Why would they suddenly increase for no reason whatsoever?
I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all. My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
