Today is Day 1 of trying to kick this drug. My original dosage is 150mg (2 - 75 mg, one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.) Not the XR.
I decided to reduce slowly from what I have researched. I cut my morning pill in half and then in half again (so took 3/4 of one) and will take my full 75 mg tonight before I go to bed. I did it this way in hopes of avoiding night sweats and crazy, crazy dreams.
I was hoping this would also allow me to have zero side affects. No such luck. Even though it is minor right now, basically just a weird pressure in my head, ringing ears, and crazy dizziness, it scares the hell out of me how such a drug can be so darn powerful!!
I've been on the meds since probably close to 10 years.
