Quite the dramatic turn around for me. Headaches are gone, nausea is gone, got some appetite back. So I guess it was from my taper. Pretty upsetting because I thought I was going slow enough with 5 mg a week, and then from 5mg to 2.5mg. But I guess I need to go even slower? I've only been on it since the beginning of May, so I didn't think I'd have this much trouble going off of it. Hope my doctor can help me on Monday, to figure out a taper schedule that I won't get sick on. I don't need the "treatments" giving me more problems then I already had!
