Hi Twiggy
I went cold turkey off of wellbutrin,tranxene and paxil about 2 years ago(the combo made me like a zombie),and I did not sleep a whole night for about a year. It was the worst thing I had ever been through.
I think you need to contact your doctor and see if they can give you something to help with the side effects of the withdrawals. Or something that will help you sleep at night.
I think that once you start weaning off of the drugs your body goes into shock and fights back.
It is not something you should do against your doctors advice.

Thanks i agree. I have been like this for a long time, i have Zoplicone 7.5mgs tabs sometimes i break them in half and still have troubles, the side effects from taking the meds are almost as bad maybe worse then weaning so i am trying to take it slow. If the headaches continue i will go to the hospital, i take t3's which help a little bit but not completly, anyway i will keep you posted on my progress thanks for replying back take care talk to ya soon Twiggy2.

If you go up to 150 mg you will need to start all over again. I agree with ShynSassy about asking the doctor for sleeping aids. Unfortunately, it looks like there are no effective remedies for withdrawal symptoms.
