    I only used ice a couple of times and had it well wrapped so it was mostly just cool. I was pretty sure direct ice would be terrible.

    Well that sounds horrifying. I canít imagine being like this for 1-3 months. I actually have never been like this where it was constant vs flushing.

    Iím on the patch but I do have pills so could try that approach. It scares me so much after the insane redness of cold turkey going off them, but it could work if I was verrrry slow.

    If things are better and you are med- free, sounds the best of all worlds!

    Coming off mirtazapine

    I have been on 22.5 mg of mirtazapine (started at 15 and increased due to depression) for around 4-5 months. It doesnít seem to help my depression or flushing and I have gained weight on it. I would...

    I tried propranolol several times. Every time, it made me flush more in this kind of patchy redness. I felt calmer but the redness was definitely worse. I feel I have tried it enough times (maybe 5?)...

    I had PDL for the first time yesterday and it was supposed to be non bruising. Instead I have broken blood vessels in streaks under my eyes and on one cheek and my face is swollen up.

  18. Quick advice on meds prescribed by psychiatrist?

    I have an appointment with my psychiatrist tomorrow to discuss medications. Iím on 15mg mirtazapine and it is not working for depression or flushing. I also take clonazepam from her, which does help...

    Tomorrow will be the one week mark and it takes 1-2 to be effective. So far I think itís helpful and I think my pores might look smaller (bonus!). But I definitely am still flushing so far ó heat,...

    What kind of medication can resolve baseline redness? By that, I mean where blood vessels have overgrown or are damaged and visible. I assumed laser is all that will fix that. I would be thrilled to...

    I think maybe I am noticing some effects today. I feel like Iím less red and recovering faster from flushes. Will be interesting to see what happens in 1-2 weeks. And for social flushing...

    Interesting that you say that. The dr wanted me to do PDL first, but I felt Botox was lower risk. For the baseline redness, though, Iím not sure what will likely help other than a laser treatment...

    Iím botoxed Wow, that was a lot of holes poked in my face. I look pretty scary right now but will see how next day or so goes. Any advice for recovery?

    Ah, maybe thatís why no one has mentioned it to me. I assume you need a script for the Canadian pharmacy?
