I used to take 10mg for a few years for anxiety, was great. Ny side effects or anything. Now that I'm doing better I wanna go oof of them. My doctor gave me a go. I went down 2,5mg, been taking 7,5mg since the 5th of January 2017. My doctor told me I will most probably experience withdrawal symptoms and I thought it's okay cause I've come off of other pills before and have handled them.
Oh dear, since monday or tuesday I've had the worst headaches. I've never, not once, in my life had a headache before, not pills related or randomly. So this headache is really new to me and it feels horrible. I get this kind of a pressure feeling aswell when it's aching in my head. Sometimes when the ache goes very bad my anxiety acts up aswell. Also my eyes are hard to keep open when the pain is happening.
I know it's only been a few days with the symptoms and I was expecting something but nothing like this. I had to take a nap today cause I just couldn't be awake cause of how I was feeling because of the withdrawal and I had to worst nightmares for two hours.
My doctor told me to ride it out and I wanna but I'm thinking, I have to go down a dose every month if not leave it even longer and I can't even think about feeling like this for months.
Any tips on minimizing the discomfort, pain? I don't wanna keep taking painkillers (I've only taken 2 so far cause I don't know how it works in the brain for the symptoms, like chemically. Maybe it's a wrong move to take painkillers.).
