Thank you for your very thoughtful reply. I will check out your suggestions for supplements although I am currently taking the Bs and tumeric but will check out time release melatonin and your other suggestions. My husband and I read your reply together and he wanted me to tell you that he really liked what you said. The answer IS yes.
Sorry. My reply was actually directed at kbmayo- I mistakenly used your name.
It’s been 3 weeks and I’m feeling irritability, depression and anxiety (complete with the physical symptoms of anxiety). My husband is my best friend but I’m afraid of ruining my marriage. Every day I wake up thinking today will be a good day. Unfortunately I’m usually wrong.
How long after you reached zero did you continue to have side effects?
It comes in 25 mg tabs. I took those for 2 weeks then cut in half for 12.5 for 2 weeks then cut those in half. It’s hard to cut them any smaller but that gets you to 6.75. So I went to zero after 2 weeks of 6.75.
What side effects are you still having? I’m 2 weeks off and am having serious depression, dizziness, irritability, rage and confusion. Benadryl seems to help a little.
