Method of tapper:
day 1 @ 30 mgs.
days 2&3 @15 mgs
Followed that method (no worrisome disturbing side effects) Did that for 3 weeks.
day 1-30 @15 slight side effects of mild headaches, fatigue, mild vision disturbance, mild internal tremors. Nothing to scare me or that I couldn't handle. Followed that method for a month. Sleeping fine.
After a month @15 mgs tappered to 7.5.
This is my 5th day at that dose. I now know that I should have used my prior method of alternating 15 with 7.5.
I can hardly walk straight, visual distortion comes and goes and if frightening, internal tremors top hallf of body moving to bottom half of body. Taking deep breaths because I feel like I'm not getting enough air and my brain feels like a chunk of wood atop my shoulders and like a band is around it squeezing. I'm going back to bed. Can't do anything or concentrate/focus at all. I hope I can sleep.
Was going to call doc but I know he would just tell me to start taking the Cymbalta he gave me script for 3 months. I don't think I want to get on this roller coaster again. Xanax seems to handle my anxiety (well almost) but it's lack of sleep that is a real problem. It's a form of torture.
I'll keep ya all updated on my progress just as an FYI in case you decide to withdraw. Wish me luck.
