Now into week 3 of coming off and this morning had the box in my hand ready to take a 37.5.
I can't describe this. Yesterday the worst head ever with terrible ringing in my ears, sleep did not help. Today i feel i have the worst hangover ever, my brain feels like its hitting my skull, my vision is blurred and i am exhausted. I thought i'd cracked it, obviously not. Anybody else had this?

Now the doc agrees I'm having withdrawal, I feel better that he believes me and stopped trying anti dizzy pills but just make me sick. I have managed to go for a walk today and tried not to look drunk!!! The sounds are so enhansed and brain zaps so annoying. But I do believe the effects are reducing day 18 off the ven. I presume being called Ian you are male! When giving birth its excruciating but you know. the end is in sight. But theses WD seem never ending. If in future I am perscribed anything I want the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Hope you are feeling a bit better. I too find short naps help and I am trying to use my mindfulness. There is a great app called head space, with guided meditation. It really is worth a go and its free.
1) if you use more sprays than recommended each time or more frequently than recommended congestion can be caused (this is called "rebound congestion")
2) if it is a pump spray device then the spray comes out in a fine mist and sniffing at the same time as spraying causes much of the mist to end up in the back of your throat. The mist gets up into the nooks and crannies just fine without sniffing.
The other type of spray, where you squeeze the bottle delivers much coarser droplets. Not only that, the amount you get depends on how hard you squeeze.
The pump sprays deliver a "metered dose" each time from a little chamber inside.
It is a mystery to me why the old fashioned squeeze sprays still exist other than to get more shelf space in the pharmacy.
3) The decongestant constricts the blood vessels in the mucus membrane which in turn causes the thickness of the membrane to shrink which is what you want. But, if you use the spray for longer than recommended, the membrane becomes damaged through lack of blood. (Think a rubber band around the wrist. Eventually your hand will drop off.)
