Is this the correct way to remove beads for Effexor withdrawal?
I am starting my taper from Effexor XR 75. I began by taking out one bead a day, then 2, then 3, but I have decided I need to know how much I am actually taking. This is what I have done this week. Is this reasonable?
Here is what my taper schedule looks like for this week of counting beads in each capsule to determine aprox dose of each.
6/7 256 bead divided by 75 = .293/bead
removed 6 beads =1.76 meaning I took 73.2mg
6/8 260 beads divided by 75 = .288/bead
removed 6 beads =1.73 meaning I took 73.2mg
6/9 247 beads divided by 75=.303/bead
removed 6=1.82 meaning I took 73.1mg
6/10 (today) 272 beads=.276/bead
removed 7 beads=1.93 meaning I took 73.1mg
Am I doing it right?
