You can try something called L Theanine. My friend is using this to ween off Wellbutrin
When you're detoxing off any med, you have to make sure you eat very clean, exericse and drink a lot of water. Helps the liver excrete the toxins from the meds.
What do you mean by eating clean? I dont really eat too many foods that are bad for me mainly because they upset my stomach.
usually eat chicken, turkey, ground buffalo, salmon, and other low grease meats. Very rarely I will eat a steak. Rice, potato, rice noodles, green beans, cucumber, and other lesser fiber foods. Fiber just goes right thru me.
I made an apt with my Dr and we are going to try Zoloft now (cant wait to start to gain that weight- I hope). He said that if i needed anymore ativan just call him and we could talk about it. I am still at .25 mg x 2 per day and I am begining to come out of that fog from dropping the dose... it sucks that it takes about a week for the tapering side effects to go away- and then it is time to drop another dosage.
Dr doesnt want to try valium because he says that much like ativan it is just putting a bandaid on a cut that needs stiches. the other meds we are trying will supposedly help get to the root of the problem.
I wll look into that L Theanine since I will be coming off of wellbutrin.
