Just a quick note to say hi! i couldnt answer earlier, it early in the morning here, not long got up,  anyway, i dont think you will be back to square one, but i do think you need a dr. to help you, you have tried cold turkey, and i really dont know what else to suggest , maybe you were trying to come off too much, i think now you may need a tapering plan or something, i dont want you to be so poorly, i really think you would be better to get some sort of medical help, i know its such a struggle, but you have to be fit for it, and with cold turkey, take nothing, your not getting to feel any better, and we have tried with things to help, please look after yourself, god bless. x

Just a quick note to say hi! sorry your not getting much sleep, i am afraid its part of the symptoms, i didnt sleep for ages properly, i drank camomile tea, took the valerian root also melatonin. all helped relax me. i think there is something called sleepytime tea you can get in walmart , that also helps, i really dont see you having any problems with valerian , look after yourself, you are doing well, x

Just a quick note to say hi!   sorry you cant sleep, most folks find that sleeplessness is part of the withdrawal that goes on the longest. i did mine cold turkey, and it was hard but doable, so hang on in there, the valerian is no problem and a help, so please dont worry about that, make sure you drink lots of fluids .i think with your dose, cold turkey is best for you, and i see others have recommended the same, try and take some hot baths, they do help, put some epsom salts in them, also take some magnesium and calcium supplements, all these things really do help and keep you healthy, by day 5/6, you will feel a bit better, look after your self.x

Just a quick note to say hi! oh dear, you really have gone through the mill ! i know lots of folks say their chiropractors are the best, it seems you didnt have a very good dr. lets hope the pain dr. is better for you, yes cymbalta can be a bit difficult, but if you just reduce over two weeks ,you shouldnt have any trouble really, would be best to ask your pain dr. as every one has different views, and experiences, i really do feel for you, i think we are lucky in uk, to have an nhs, (national health service, ) we pay a national insurance stamp from our wages , when we are working, but its free if we are retired, or out of work. dentists we pay for , they are expensive!

Just a quick note to say hi! i did loose my appetite, i too have mostly false teeth! not good, any way what did brian say about cymbalta? i know its an antidepressant, and is also used for nerve pain in feet,hands and legs, it has to be tapered, not stopped suddenly, drs. usually taper it off in two weeks, i do worry about you, would your medicare not cover you to see a dr. ? i just want you to be alright, x

Just a quick note to say hi!sorry, i didnt explain that very well, yes i did mean leaving longer before oxy/pain meds doses, thanks for your concern, about copd, i am not on the oxygen yet, i think it was the smoking , my mum also had it, (what a coincidence, )i just take an inhaler at the moment, dont worry about the valerian, it did help me, and my dr. was ok with it, you will be much happier not being tied to pills, x

Just a quick note to say hi!  hi nana, i got my melatonin from the health shop and the doses are on the packet or bottle, i doubled what it said, i was advised to do this by my dr. he said we have quite a resistance to things, because we have these addictions, the same with the valarian root, they are natural products, so is ok to do this, i hope you dont have too bad a night, its midnight here in uk, so i will say good night, will speak again tomorrow and let me know how you are doing, look after yourself, god bless you.
