      Hi Imelda

      was it difficult?  How long did it take and did you taper off?

      Hi Mary, i started taking one tablet everyb other day over 2 weeks then 1/2 a tablet over 2 weeks then quit, docter said i went ogg them too quick and should have taken at least 6 weeks of cutting them down, hje wanted me to go back on them and do that, I didn't see the sense in that as i feel well enough, ok a bit hot sometimes and panicky some times with the odd palpatation thrown in for good measure but i'm glad i'm off them, fell more like my old self with more confidance and can now make decissions for myself and can concentrate.
