A ten day headache!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello all. I'm in the process of reducing with hopes of getting of Cit. I'm now down to 27.5 mg's from 40. I've been doing it 2.5 mg's at a time for two week periods. Anyone know if these headaches are a normal part of reducing? Just so sick of feeling crappy.

    You are splitting tablets so you will be getting headaches, you are not allowing your body to reduce in a proper way.

    Talk to your GP He will instruct you in reducing your medication safely

    Hi John

    Not sure why you have this lengthy headache - you're reducing by a small amount.  Why not stay on the dose you're on and wait for the headache to subside before venturing further?  It may be you get a headache with each reduction, so stay put each time til it goes.

    Yes talk to your doctor too, though I'm sure he'll say you're doing all the right things.

      Good day Miss Kate. Tks for the reply. I've been feeling a bit better the last few days. I plan on staying the course as I have spoken to a pharmacist and she told me I'm doing this the right way. Only issues I have is lack of sleep and tinnitus but I can put up with this. She tild me to try melatonin again and I plan on doing that. Other than thise two issues its not going too bad. When I dont get a good nights sleep though I seem to have a crappy day the next day. Enjoy your day!!!!!
