Hi Dr Andersen: This new peak withdrawal was different....not during the 1 to 7pm timetable
IIt came BEFORE
Went on 1/2 hr walk at 12:30pm
At 12pm --- I was 117/90 p 66.
On the return I had pains above my left breast. came home and it was 109/93 p94
5 min later 115/91 p74. Did I overdo the walk or is this still withdrawals?
I just took the .25mg tablet. Chest pain is gone. Usually stuff starts after 2 hrs
As ready as I think I was-for morning reduction I am now scared.
QUESTION---If I am fine the rest of today, should I do the reduction tomorrow 7AM?
Will it make the withdrawals from the 1pm worse?
My morning #s were
113/84 p 72
Do you think exercising before the next dosage also triggered the pain.
Perhaps I should exercise mid-dosage?
What are your thoughts on that?
Good Evening Dr Anderson: I did not decrease the dosage this AM as you suggested.
I was told maybe tomorrow since this AM I was dizzy. I am confused because idizziness is a withdrawal symptom but also a symptom of the medication. Is my diziness caused because I take 2 nighly dosages of .50mg -and then the same first thing in the morning, only followed by .25mg in the afternoon? I am not anxious but scared of what I face with this next reduction.
QUESTION 2 Plse remind me again now that I am at 1.75mg for the past 5 days if I reduce tomorrow by .25mg - will the withdrawal symptoms be severe since I didn't wait a week? QUESTION 3- MOST IMPORTANTLY When will the peak withdrawal symptoms be for this next reduction? in 3 to 5 days or sooner?. Last go around...one day I was sleepy with 50 like pulses, next day ok, third rebound anxiety and depression, yesterday dizzy and today a little higher but normal bp and heart rates with numbness in legs and left arm aches.
I really hate that I've been on this med for over a month now. Is it true that since I will still be taking this med for awhile - the withdrawal symptoms will continue to be this severe???? Your spirit and info has been so helpful...you are a gem.

Hi Dr Anderson: I will try another cut down by .25mg tomorrow morning. Hope the severity of the withdrawals won't increase...Yes, you read my mind. I want to get this over with as soon as possible. Just can't take an increase in the severity of the withdrawals. Will try a cutback tomorrow and pray for the best. Keep you posted.
Thanks again for all your help.
