Hey ALL! It has been a couple of weeks and I am still at 10mg. I did great going from 24mg to 16mg to 12mg to 10mg- I did 15 days each taper and didn't feel anything really except insomnia! I have been on 10mg for a while now and have started to feel effects- depression, agitation, worsening insomnia, stomach issues... I spoke with my Sub doc and he said just stay at 10mg for a while until it evens out and then go down by 2mg tp 8mg. I am hoping to be off completely by this summer so I can go back to work. I left my nursing job and it sucks but I know it was the right thing to do until I get this kicked. I miss working and feel like I am going crazy without human interaction on a daily basis. I am trying to be positive and stay focused on the light at the end of the tunnel but I am very impatient and want what I want when I want it... Aren't we all?
I have Trazadone to help me sleep but I haven't used it yet. I don't have anything anti anxiety but feel like that will come soon enough- I am hoping my sub doc will give it to me since my PCP fired me as a patient.
Thanks for all of your support and I will try to come on here more often to update.
I won't give up. Not happening!!
Wherever you go, there you are.
