Withdrawal and extreme fatigue?

I am inching closer and closer to 7.5mg [slowly] but today I woke up, despite getting a fair amount of sleep and I am so sluggish I can’t do anything. 

Is this normal for withdrawals? Naturally it’s causing anxiety because I’m not normally this sluggish at all. Is this something I should be expecting as I wean?

      Hi Kaz, hope you’re keeping well. I was wondering what dose of the Mirt your on now and how long you’ve been tapering for.

      I’m on 15 mg and thinking of tapering off

      I’m at 7.5mg now. Getting some weird dreams and some disrupted sleep.  I’ve put on a bit of weight as well. I don’t tend to eat much before 6 PM but then eat like a horse afterwards. Definitely caused by the Mirt.   Are you going to lower your dose anymore  ?
