Hello fellow warriors!!

 

Just wondering if this microtaper is gentler than the 10% percent drop. I have tapered from 225 mg and now down to 33.8 mg. I had two rough two day episodes where I am in bed or in the bathroom with headache, nausea, vomiting at times and stiff neck and jaw. I'm thinking microtapering this way might help.

Yes, the Brassmonkey slide taper is gentler than the straight 10% drop.  This is because instead of hitting your system all at once with a 10% decrease, you do a smaller weekly decrease of 2 1/2% every week for four weeks, then hold for two weeks for your system to catch up.  I used this method for my Lexapro taper and I recommend it.

 

The symptoms you describe indicate you need to taper more gently and slowly.

Thanks Gridley,

 

I just started counting my beads to 33.8 mg before I was compounding it at the pharmacy with out of pocket costs. Do you think this micro taper works well with counting beads also? I do have the scale recommended here but heard it was not that accurate.

I'm not sure how well it would work counting beads since you'd be dealing with a much smaller percentage (2 1/2%) than 10% and I don't know how that would play out in terms of removing beads.  You could try it and see.

 

I've been using the Gemini scale for 3 years and have found it accurate enough for my purposes.  The disadvantages are that it's not accurate below 3mg pill weight and you can't weigh half milligrams.  The lowest reading is one milligram.

I will need to ponder on this some more. If I do the weighing then I can use the spreadsheet more accurately. Thanks for your input on this. I haven't used the website that much and still learning on how to to post. I need to post more questions regarding stiff neck and jaw and neuropathy in my feet.

post more questions

You should post anything specifically about you, your taper and your symptoms in your main Introduction topic so all your material is together.  That's better than posting in the "tapering" or "symptoms and self care" forums.  You'll get more readers in your own Introduction topic.
