Need some advice😬

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey everybody,

I've been reducing for several months now, as mentioned in my previous post, currently 5mg from 7.5 and before that 10mg. I get some good days although never perfect and some horrible days. I've been on 5mg for about four months. I'm beginning to lose confidence in myself, keep thinking what if I will never stabilize on 5mg. I'm also thinking if I'm still feeling like this should I stop all together because what difference will it make if I feel rotten anyway.

I've also been thinking should I increase to 7.5. I just don't know what to do, just need some words of experience and wisdom.

My current symptoms are, heavy head feeling, muzziness, headaches, light headedness, weird eye sensations, sea motion feelings, brain zaps, insomnia, tinnutus, restless legs. These change daily, some days my head is clear and I think, this is it, surely, only to feel rotten the next day.

I've had my bloods checked out and they are ok. Any advice?

Thanks everybody, hope things are working out for you all.

    I only know that with either increasing or decreasing do sages it can take several / many weeks before you truly stabalise your dosage to what should be good for you . In this day & age we all, understandably, want & expect things to sort themselves asap, being patient for results is really hard. Either take more time OR try to talk things over with your medical team/doctor, whoever & good luck. do NOT give up. you will get there

    TIME is often what is needed more than or as much as our medication - we need all the help we can get. Hold on in there.

      Thanks Sheila. I haven't changed my dose, as you say it takes time, I appreciate that. Today has been a good day apart from what I can only describe as ibs symptoms which is new for me. Hopefully it will pass.

      I feel more positive today and have felt more like my old self. I have had these good feelings before only to be knocked back the next day but today I felt a glimmer of hope even more so.

      Thanks again and best wishes to you.

    Hi all, me again,

    I'm in the same boat, nothings changed except I am getting stressed with family and it's making my symptoms worse. I don't think I am going to stabilise on 5mgs. How do I increase with the least start up effects? Do I go to 7.5 or 10. I think I cannot do without it because the things that are causing my stress are always there.
