    Yes, Chris. You did a 50% reduction. I did the same, had same symptoms. Par for the course. What is your next move?

       Hi Gretel. think i will try same again tonight see how i am tomorrow maybe 50% reduction is to much in one go with this table. if same tomorrow i will take 3/4 of the tablet tomorrow night. and stick with that for a week or two. didn't expect such  bad side effect with 50% reduction

    Yes and it gets worse if you continue cutting that dose in half.

    Sorry it's not helping you either. Today I feel like my left ear is bleeding.  I'm still so dizzy and can't even find words to put together to say how I feel. Totally not me or of any value. It's been  2 days off the one 7.5 dose I took
