Dropped to 7.5 from 10

Posted , 4 users are following.

Dropped 12 days ago from 10 to 7.5. Feeling horrible from withdrawals. Couldn't handle 10 as one of the side effects was frequent urination. Eventually going to 5 after I settle out at 7.5. Anyone else drop to 7.5 and go through withdrawals? How long did they last? Anyone go to 5? How long did it take for you to stabilize?

      I'll probably have to stay at 5m as I don't want to go through the horrendous side effects of going completely off of it. I wish I'd never started it. I have to try to get to 5mg so the frequent urination will be less. I'm feeling horrible, have no one to come help me today. It would be nice to be free of this drug, but I don't know that's possible. My body is already in a weakened state after fighting the interstitial cystitis for months.

      I was on cit for 9 yrs, went from 40 down to 10 with time in between, never had any withdrawls. I just started back on 8 wks ago on 10. This time just going down from 10 to 7.5 I'm experiencing withdrawals. My body is having s hard time adjusting. Just hope it does soon. Feeling more anxiety today too, lorazapam not taking care of it. Don't feel very well.
