We ask all members to create a drug signature. Please use the preferred format:
A request: Would you summarize your history in a signature - ALL drugs, doses, dates, and discontinuations & reinstatements, in the last 12-24 months particularly?
Please read this topic: Why taper by 10% of my dosage?
When we have more information about your drug history and what you want to do we will be better able to help you.
This is your own Introduction topic where you can ask questions and journal your progress.
