Update: Day 10 Today has been so much better! I've had a sinus headache, slight dizziness and slight brain zaps today, but all in all, much better. I am feeling more "present" and definitely more hopeful!
I know these withdrawal symptoms will persist based on others' posts, but after being basically incapacitated from Days 2-7, I think I can do this!View Thread
YES! I'm on Day 7 of cold turkey from 300mg a day, and have so many of the symptoms everyone has mentioned - brain zaps, nausea, headaches, sinus pain, vivid dreams, sporadic anger/sadness/tears - but the itching is what is driving me insane! I can't get away from it, and no amount of Benedryl has helped. As terrible as it sounds, it DOES make me feel better to know I'm not alone - as much as I wish no one had to go through this.View Thread
