That is great PharmaNAMI, congratulations! Doctors told me I would be on them for life, and everyone else thought that too.

Lots of us here were told that and we are proving them all wrong.


Thank you for joining us, could you tell us your story, and post it in the success stories topic, we love to

hear of the successful tapers.  Most people get on with their new lives happy and healthy when they successfully

get off meds. . Who can blame them for not hanging around ?  :)

Lesson learned, slow down taper at lower doses. Taper no more than 10% of CURRENT dose if possible
