@brassmonkey

Thanks for checking in on my progress,  Mr. Brassmonkey.

i'm surprisingly feeling good, as I have been scared and I was having fear, I'm just hoping my next taper will not be so bad,  I'm doing the 10% and I'm ready to deal with the WD, hoping it's something that I will be able to handle  only time will tell.

 My Next new taper is next sunday 7/26/20 at 456mg according to my support system that's really good at this. Ms. Frogie, love her.

It look like a big chopped but let me see how my body react to this new reduce dose. I'm ready.

Be well sir.

Good Monday to you, as  I look at the new numbers for my second taper at 456mg of trazodone for Sunday 7/26/20, I saw the big difference, wow, I just have to get accustomed in the changes in the numbers as it drop during my taper on a monthly basis and not get alarm by it. I'm hoping as I go lower in numbers I can deal with my hiccups, [WD]  that comes along with it.

On Saturday night, 7/18/20  I took a tiny dose of melatonin like .12mg, but when it was time for bed after I took my trazodone 507mg I was still awake, so I took another .12mg of melatonin, and I fell right to sleep.

Last night 7/19/20,  I just took the .25mg of melatonin and when it was time for bed I took my trazodone at 507mg and fell asleep.

Stay blessed Frogie

Hoping your taper is coming along great.

Hi:

 

Sounds like small amounts of melatonin are working for you. Super.

 

Numbers are always scary when they get lower in tapering, but just remind yourself that you are going to be off the medication son enough. But, listen to your body. It will tell you that it’s time to taper.

 

Sounds like you are doing well. Glad to hear it!

 

Take care,

 Frogie xx

Hi..
 wow I have notice for 2  days straight 7/21/20, and 7/22/20 when I take a very tiny melatonin I'm having problem falling asleep after I take my trazodone,

I will then take another tiny piece  equaling .50,  Its up and down.  In a few days I will try taking .25mg  melatonin to see if I can fall asleep on that again.   I really only wanted to be taking the smallest doses but I will not sleep, that's a bomber. Oh well.

Hope all is well.

You might try just a tiny bit more. They say less is better.

 

Sleep disturbance is very normal.

 

 I hope you are doing well other than that. 
 

I’m doing well, thanks.

What exactly is your daily drug schedule -- times and dosage?

 

You're not taking 456mg trazodone now, are you?

 

Quote

trazodone 0.507mg

 

What does this mean?

 

Please clarify your signature. Don't use the pill weight (mgpw), we have no idea what milligrams of active ingredient (mgai) that might be. Please list the milligrams of active ingredient (trazodone) you were taking. This will be some amount smaller than the prescribed amount of the tablet.

Hi @street129

 

On your signature please remove 6/16/20 and 7/26/20 posts and replace it with this:

 

6/16/20 0.507 mgpw 0.90 mg, 7/26/20 0.456 mgpw 0.81 mg.

 

That's what @Altostrata and the other mods need to see so they know what dosage you are on.

 

Looks like you are doing ok. It's very normal to have sleepless nights. I have them a lot. You will heal and the sleep will come back to you. Just be patient :)

 

Thanks,

Frogie xx

no im not taking 456mg  trazodone, wow that do look crazy now as I read it back. I'm not good with math, and I'm not american 


Daily drug schedule in weight amount of my drug at 10% as of yesterday 7/26/20 I'm taking .456  at 1am nightly in weight, for the next 6 weeks

Frogie I fixed the signature,  last night I fell asleep on the .12.5mg melatonin  but who knows tonight I might need a  .25mg, I have to go with my body.

today I'm feeling a little depressed, like I want to cry for no reason, and a small headache, whatever this crying thing is I'm feeling oh so sad. I hope it don't last for to long.

Why do you take trazodone at 1 a.m.? Did you ever take it earlier?

I take trazodone at 1am cause I stay up late before coming to this site, but usually when the time changes I change with the time.

Staying on the computer late at night can cause poor sleep.

 

If I were you, I'd get off the computer, turn off the lights, and take the trazodone and melatonin at 9 p.m. every night. Darkness helps trigger the sleep cycle.

 before covid, I would get home way pass 9pm, and its still like that after covid.

I need to be and stay on the same time taking my trazodone every night that  I have learned from here and my Dr.

I've never been an early bird, and I don't mine the 1 am hour.

 

Thanks for inquiring.

So sorry to hear you had to go to the ER. I hope your headaches will go away now. I have headaches quite a bit. It’s due to wd, unfortunately. 
 

Glad you slept better.

 

Other than the headache, it sounds like you’re doing relatively well. Good news!

 

 I’m doing ok, thanks for asking.

 

Take care,

So far I'm coming along, falling asleep on .50mg of melotonin,  even thou I try .25mg. every night with no luck, how's your sleep coming along with everything else.

2nd week on my new taper, I'm doing my crushing my pills with my pill cutter then I used my big spoon to crush them fine,  then deposited them into the empty capsule woo it's a lot to do, but it got to be done.

oh I quit physical therapy cause there's little to no improvement, I did go back to my orthopedic doctor to ask what's next, but since im having inflammation in the area there's not much he can do.  I was given another shot in the area, right now I'm pain free, and  I'm icing the hip area every change I got, I was giving a new script for more therapy, but  it's too hot for therapy and has to wear a mask. I'm  getting a second opinion in the matter.

Have a beautiful weekend my friend

 Happy Monday.!
Things are ok still so far, as of 2 nights I've been able to fall asleep on .25mg of melatonin again which I prefer, my system is doing as it sees fit with how much mg it wants.

I'm also experiencing falling asleep in the day time/noon and I really don't want to be asleep, and it's been going on for the past 3 days straight, i fight to stay awake cause there's things that need to be done around home, so I hope it stop.
 Couble days ago, I decided to buy sea moss and take a spoon of it in the morning, so I don't know if this is contributing to me falling asleep I have no clue. I will watch to see when this sleeping in the day goes away.

You're nearing the end of your taper I'm hoping it will be smooth for you, I feel so much joy for you that I want to cry.   YESSS

Have a blessed day friend

Glad you’re able to fall asleep with less melatonin. That’s a good sign you’re body is handling the taper.

 

 I don’t know anything about sea moss. I’ll have to read about it.

 

 I’m nearing the end, and then the healing begins. It’s been a little rough but I’ll be ok. Thanks for thinking of me.

 

You also have a blessed day and stay cool.

 

Take care,

 Frogie xx
