Hey how are u doing this is RJ haven't spoken to you since you told me to hang in there on tapering. Tomorrow I go down another 1/2 pill the afternoon one that will make it 5 a day then. I couldn't believe that when I first started the taper 4 days ago going down 1/2 pill the (evening one) would make such a difference. Hard time sleeping  for 2 nights resless legs (wrapped them in ace bandages from the knee up, helped a lot) and depression a little in the morning, but eased after the morning dose of tram. I want this over so bad, but I know I need to be patient. I do not want to experience the stories i have read. Take care RJ

Hey RJ,

I've changed down to 100mg and I'm really having a hard time as it's a big jump from 200mg... sleep is all over the place depression, I almost cry at a drop of a hat at sometime and the random pains my hands and legs are the worse. I get headaches as well. How ever I have done cutting down 200mg at a time then off totally and this tapering is much better, when you going CT you end up feeling like a killer flu for 5-8 days and you just can't move, thinking or do anything. tapering you can function with some pain but can detail with it.

I think the best thing to do is plan when you want to get off the drug and work how you are going to do it. In my case this prepares you mentally a bit better and I think you can deal with the pain also.

Keep up the great work, together we will make it :)

Thank you posting and please don't be a stranger i need some company through this.
