i am tappering off of pills also, but my tapper is by one pill a week. So for example this week I am down to 8 pills from 9 a day. I am doing a tapper that is right for me and my health. I do think you are going down too fast. Please be so very careful with your health!
Yes, you are going too fast. The reason for tappering is to have easier withdrawl. and that means a little at a time. It will help if you pick a day for quitting altogether. Say in a month. Then keep trying to reduce your dose as is bearable. Always keeping in mind that you will be taking zero pills on the date that you have picked.
When i started my taper, my first rule was no more than twice a day, what ever the dose was. That way you have to really stretch out the doses. Yes, this is uncomfortable but i would always remind myself of how much worse it was with absolutely none at all.
How very sweet of your daughter to help you. Mine helped me too. Isn't God great to have given us daughters?
Whoa! That is as close to a cold turkey taper as you can get. Do you have a limited # of pills?
Hi Sandy-You may be tapering too fast. I beat my habit of 7.5/750s so I have an idea how you're feeling. I had enough to do my taper slowly so my w/ds were manageable. I'd go from 30/day down in smaller increments. But if you're doing ok on the 9 tabs/day then stay with it for a good while and then drop it from there.
Let me know how you're doing and I'm happy to help if you need...be tough and strong and you CAN do it!!
Tell me if i'm wrong, but that is a really fast taper!!! ? Do you have any doctors on your side or know about this? Maybe they could help you. How long have you been using? Good for you though for trying to do it again. I have a doctor right now helping me taper, but I wasn't taking nearly that much a day, maybe 5-6 10mg perks, and i am only cutting 1/2 one every week or so. My wd symptoms are merely headaches and of course i am in pain. Just try to hang in there and keep posting...like my grandma always says..
GIVE EM' HELL HARRIET!!!
