Why is your doctor stopping your meds? Don't be afraid! You will be ok! Their are many ways to help ease your discomfort during wd's! Most importantly CALM DOWN and just take each thing as it comes. Refer to the THOMAS recipe for things to help you through detox and stick close here... We will help walk you through each step of the way!

that's great....good to here Lyrica is working.  My dr tried cymbalta (i guess its also an anti-depressant?) but it did nothing for the nerve & muscle-skeletal issues i have.   Didnt make me happier either.  :)  But i was already happy...vs now.  Day 10 & i keep on keeping on.

Good luck with the taper & keep us informed.
