Recommended Posts




i weaned doen to 5mg a year ago and decided to stay for a bit before completely getting off. 


I am stable. Is it possible to still have side effects? I've been experiencing nightsweats. I just got a new refill and notice that I always need to adapt when I get a new bottle.

Hi everyone, 


Not sure if I should start a new topic or post here. 


Ive been on 5mg I guess for a bit over a year. It has helped me with some health issues, but I’ve become a terrible person. 


I have no feelings. I’m very numb except for when I’m angry or sad. I strayed from my relationship, which isn’t like me at all. I didn’t go “all the way” but did enough to hate myself. Which I think was the goal. To self sabotage. And now I feel like a horrible human being. I’m trying so desperately to feel “something” good, validation, something, and it’s not happening. Only despair. When I look at my SO, I have to hold back tears. I don’t understand why he loves me at all. This is the worst depression I’ve ever been in. 


Im going to start the weaning process. But now I worry bc it’s going to be tough on top of the horrendous guilt that’s crippling me. 


I don’t know. Hoping someone here can help get me through this. 


Im getting the syringe tomorrow to start the taper. Going to do 1mg at a time every 4 weeks.
