hey girl! i feel ya loud and clear.
i was on 50mg for 6 weeks before i started to taper by 10mg every 5 days. im now on 5mg and only have 4 more days to go! yey!! finally.
i thought i was going to go mad.
even tho im down to 5mg, i still cant sleep without my tomazepam sleeping pills, i get the night sweats (and day sweats) still. i still have the shakes all day every day. i cant even read a piece of paper i shake so bad. i look like im going thru drug withdrawals or something.
i wax my upper lip and then less than a week later my honey pie is looking at me and saying "mustaka" under his breath LOL. bloody hell. thank god there is none under my chin. holy crap that would suck.
oh and did i mention im a grouch ass too! yeah, the hubby just loves that!
i eat like a **please watch the language**
cow! i salt my food, scarf it down and then i salt the plate and eat that too! oh, and nothing tastes like it used to either. i am sosssssssssssoooooo glad that i have finally tapered down. those were the longest 8/9 weeks ever. i cant imagine 4 months you poor thing. u must be going mad about
i havent gained weight, but now that im better its starting to come back a bit.
the pred worked for me at the beginning, but it stopped working cuz my flare didnt go away the whole time and it seemed like it got worse.
then it spontaneously went away 2 weeks ago. havent had a symptom since. nothing. pretty crazy.
but it was cuz of the landmark forum that i did. (but thats another story)
i hope you power thru it and i wish u luck and u go and vent any time! i hear ya - its pretty darn horrible!
i hope i never have to do it ever again!!!!!!
