Hello, I am now 7.5 months since my cold turkey stop from mirt, Feb 27. I am still having nausea, weight loss (30 pounds), weak / fatigue, abdominal cramps / spasms / pain, sleep interruption due to abdominal cramps, headaches, loss of appetite. These aren't as bad as they have been, but are bad enough to keep me in bed most of the time. I go for short walks when I feel that I can. I am also having tremors. I was on mirt 45 for 8 years. Just to let you know how long symptoms can last. I have had a CT of the brain, 2 abdominal CTs, one with contrast, one without. I have been to the hosptal ER 5 times with symptoms that I was afriad was something serious, which is when these tests were done. My GI doctor says that I should get a colonoscopy if the weight loss continues, 30 pounds over 7.5 months, mostly at the beginning of withdrawal symptoms. I am, also having gas pains and bowels churning, and infrequent constipation. If you are in withdrawal, and this sounds like what you are going through, or have gone through, please reply. In addition to anxiety and depression, started at withdrawals, and feelings of doom and despair are causing fear and stress, and already having Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the symptoms are hard to take. Thank You
