hi doc feeling letargic doc , feel so crap i dont want to do or go anywhere, having aches and pains in mu back and arms last few days and just dont recognise any of this its like im just wacked out too sedate and because of this i feel down as i cant go out or if i do i feel nothing , ive had enough doc, so i will cut down, if there anything i can do to make it easier like go down by half for 2 days or should i just go from this 337 to 325, it was very hard last time 2 very bad days but 3 pretty good ones just will have to stick it out

How long have you been on the 337 now?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

12 days doc i do have some good phases but even then i feel emotionaly blunted, like doing nice things thtat i enjoyed but not enjoying it much, its getting to me now

You can't force yourself to get out and at least take a walk?

i did this morning doc went for coffee in town but crap after it, also sleepers not working like they did,if i can get through the initial hard wk on 325 that dose was the best by a mile doc im bout 5 percent now then i was 45 after 3weeks

OK--do you think this time you can tough it out and stay on the 325 for say at least two weeks?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes doc i had a very bad 5th day last time i way on it and i moved up thinking i might manage this dose but now i know for sure i have to stick on the 325 that is the one,just hope i get lucky and it not as bad as the last time,could i have a slight bit better hope of it being a bit better doc,whatever happens ill stick it

OK Peter, and of course I'll be here to walk you through it--go back on the 325 and don't budge from it. I still think you alter the dose too easily. I know how hard it must be on a bad day to let your defenses down and up the dose, but you really need to be sailing in the same boat no matter how rough the sea is. We'll get you through but you have to bite the bullet this time my friend.

Hang in there my friend.
