    Look up the Ashton manual and all you need to know is in there.You need to get back on ,get stabilized and taper off as told in that manual. I was taken off in 4 days 26 months ago and am still unable to function.its horrible.

      Are you on anything now? It takes weeks even months to taper off! My MS specialists took me off cold turkey and I had no idea what was going to happen ! I hope I'm wrong but I'm afraid you are going to get much,much worse without any, you will have to taper off and that takes awhile you will need to keep halving your dose at least every two weeks or a month ! And you will probely need a psychiatrist to help you! Since they are the ones that prescribe those type of meds now ! I have a new neurologist that has helped me out but I still have to go to a psychiatrist for 2 of my meds! After all the crap I had to go through they ended up putting me back in the same ones it's been months and I'm still not back to where I was! Again I am so sorry you are having to go through this and if things get worse I will try to let you know what to expect. God bless and I hope you are able to get some sleep.

I don't want to scare you but this is a very dangerous and unnesessery thing your going through please make sure that you are not alone because you probley not be able to take care of yourself I'm praying that yours won't be as bad as I was since it made my MS act up worse! I'm hopeing you will find a decent Dr. Take care and let me know how you are doing!
