I am experiencing a lot of different emotions! I didn't feel good on the 80 and was informed of the danger at my! My moods are high and low, I have always been successful in my job, never been fired or let go! But recently I have been in a very dramatic setting! I quit this job 3 months ago and was asked to come back! I have been there for 1 month and feel out of sorts! I don't feel like I can stay and there is so much Drama! I can afford to take time off, just wondering if anyone else has felt this way! I don't feel clear on what is my part and what is Drama? Please help!

      hi 80 mg thats one high dose i have a lot of different emotions on 20mg if you went straight from 80mg to 20mg thats a big drop so you may have some withdrawal there. never heard or came accross anyone on 80mg.

    80Mg is one hell of a welt, and it must have been a real problem to get back down to 20mg. I have not heard of such a high dose.

    Have you been on a Mental Health Ward ?

    Is your dramatic setting in another state ?

      I am high functioning, my Doc said he has other patients on higher dose? I am just glad I am down to 20, and will go off completely! Had a family crisis 3 and half years ago and that's when given the meds! I am doing well, taking time of until March! Never been in hospital ever for anything and I am over 60! I hope this helps someone else to make the decision to not ever go this high of dose!

      Hello judith

      What sort of Crisis caused a medication to be given so high. ?.

      It seems it could have buckled you

      I am 66 years old and I would someone would question such a dose.

      How did you manage to come back down to 20mg
