I have had enough they make me vomit and feel so unwell yet i am compelled to take them the thought of them makes me gag but i still have to buy them i have gone cold turkey and am coming into day three oh my god no sleep at all maybe two hours a night night sweats my pjs are soaked in sweat sorry to be disgusting I am agitated my muscles ache i can't breathe walking up the stairs even though i run everyday although i am physically unable to now i feel like my body is shutting down this is horrific the exhaustion of my body is beyond comprehension.

Hi - sorry no one posted....
If you feel your body is shutting down, please go to hospital or doctor.
I am not an addict, I have not personally gotten off drugs before.


From what I read here there are two ways: Taper or Cold Turkey.
They have their pros and cons.

CT is harder physically on the body.

perhaps the middle of the road it taper down to as little as possible, and then CT.

I get it - you are going to suffer mentally or physically, short time or long time.....

CT is not safe sometimes - mentally or physically - depending on the meds you are jumping off of.

Overall - get well prepared BEfore jumping off meds...

Time off work, supportive doctors, alternatives, suppliments, vitamins, change routine, things to divert bordom, etc.

give yourself small goals and rewards - financial - exercise - eating better - cooking - educational classes - catch up on reading, puzzles, crafts, projects, garden - when you are feeling up to it. or just one hour a day at something different.
