Here's a little of the research information I have come up with. Doc Sutter is aware of what the findings are. I am sort of a pioneer thru this, so will give you what I've found according to what I think YOU are up against, personally.
The benzo drugs are what causes the worst of the central nervous system symptoms when they come out. You had only been on them for 3 weeks, therefore I don't think you are going to have to worry about many of the symptoms.
On a side note right now---
A lot of us who had bad livers suffered from panic attacks and might have been on the benzo drugs for a while. Some of us for years. I was on them for 5.5 years steady before I got off them. They are horrible poisons. I am going to get blatently truthful here and tell you THESE DRUGS WERE FORMULATED TO SHUT THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DOWN. I went thru about 6 weeks of very disabling central nervous symptoms. It started out with a kind of hearing problem that made me a little deaf. My hearing is quite normal. otherwise. The worst of the symptoms started WITH the cellular detox about 6 weeks ago today. 12/06/10. I am still suffering from the effects of them, BUT they are not as disabling now. They DO still limit my physical abilities at this point in time. I am not sure how long it will take to get them out of my spinal cord and brain. For anyone who has taken them, I can say to just be patient and the symptoms WILL abate. Don't get discouraged, either. You WILL come thru this. Doc has said "whatever went in HAS to come out".
Perhaps I shouldn't spare you of what the symptoms are from the benzo detox in this post. What they do when they come out is put extreme pressure inside the brain and spinal cord. They pull on the spinal cord, lock the neck and head up and try to pull it down between your shoulder blades. It feels like the drugs are literally pulling the spinal cord out of the body. It is rather painful. Essentially they put a lot of pressure on the breathing and heart. I could only take baby steps and walk very slowly for over a month bacause any pumping action of the cerebral spinal fluid would lock my legs up so I wasn't able to walk. The drug wants to come out fast, so another thing it does is bloat the intestines and put pressure on the breathing for a while. The charcoal stops that. The pressure is felt in both the brain and spine and also in the intestines. These drugs went thru the intestines and left their residue there to begin with. Very nasty stuff. I attribute most of this to benzo detox.
If benzos isn't what you were mostly poisoned with, you won't have to worry about these symptoms so much, but you most assuredly will have some unpleasant symptoms that you will feel in the central nervous system for probably a couple of months. I'm guestimating at the time the worst of it will last. I don't want to scare anyone, but I think you need to be prepared and know "this, too, shall pass".
If you have taken any of the SSRI's that have a half life, they ARE still packed in your brain and spinal cord, your tissues and perhaps your bones, depending on how bad off your liver and colon were at the time of initial detox and how much of the drugs you could detox in the initial detox 3 years ago. This goes for all drugs, but because of the half life of these drugs and the amount you may have packed away, they get gone much slower.
The symptoms I experienced BEFORE I started the cellular detox and was still cleaning the colon and liver I wasn't able to relate to benzo detox, except I had periods of time when I was very tired and couldn't wake up very well and slept most of the day.
The detox goes on at a very slow pace after the symptoms stopped that you are probably unaware of since the symptoms DID stopp with the initial detox. The drugs are still are in your brain and spinal cord to an extent.
What you are doing when you are cleaning out your liver and colon is detoxing more of these drugs. They are in your liver and also packed into the colon wall junk. Plus the other places I mentioned. There is a bigger concentration of them around the liver and in the colon under the liver.
Since my colon and liver has been clean, the cellular detox has speeded up. This means they started coming out of my brain and spinal cord, plus all the other tissues of my body, but it's in the brain and spinal cord that the miserable symptoms are felt. I am probably detoxing both the benzo and the zoloft I took for under a year as a replacement for the deseryl I was on for 5.5 years. Zoloft is a SSRI with a half life. Any drug with a half life takes longer to detox and they are associated with some unplesant symptoms when they do come out.
This is why I recommend a little charcoal going in all the time because it will help to pull those toxins out. Taken 2 hours on both sides away from meals so you don't take out any good nutrients your body needs.
The other thing I highly recommend is to do Dr. Sahley's protocol (from the Pain and Stress Center) for detoxing an also rebuilding the brain and nervous system. Also something to support the heart. That's her Super BNCG that helps balance brain and body chemistry, natural B6 and taurine that's both an antidepressant a help to the heart. Then, the natural acerola cherry helps the liver produce glutathione that will help detox these drugs. I also added some COQ10 for a while. All help the heart during the worst of the detox.
One of the best things to help the brain and central nervous system is Brian Peskin's Omega 6 and 9 that the body can convert into Omega 3. Cconut oil (info from Doc) is also very good at healing the central nervous system.
So, I've given you what I can that has helped me immensely and what I recommend from my own personal experience in healing myself of what the psycotrpic drugs did.
Remember, you don't have a drug deficiency. It could never happen. But you CAN get very, very poisoned by the drugs. You were poisoned from the start, and that's why you started feeling depressed.
If you've got panic attacks, you've got bugs, so do the extra L ornithine, too, that will help you neutralize the ammonia from the bugs that are overstimulating the adrenal glands.
Depression isn't a dis-ease. It's that you're loaded up with toxins and have brain fog that you need to get rid of by cleaning your body out. Drugs poison and pollute the cellular environment, were invented by the drug companies to TAKE YOU OUT PERMANENTLY! One drug calls for another to cover up the syumptoms the first drug caused. So get wise and VERY smart. NO DRUGS and clean out the body of the poisonous stuff and put the proper nutrients in there that will eventually heal it.
It's only once in a lifetime you have to do it. When you're done, you're free.
I hope this will help all who are detoxing this type of drugs.
