Hello and welcome!
I am sorry to hear that you have run into some challenges with your discontinuation. :/ I know this must be frustrating.
If I am reading your post correctly...it sounds as if you are on about
(approx) 12.5 per day...since you are taking 25 mg every other day?
Did your doctor give you this wean schedule? You were not on a high dose, but since you had been taking it for an extended period...this method of skipping days might just be too inconsistent.
I think a preferable method is to reduce the mgs over a period of weeks (sometimes months) rather than use the skip a day method.
talking to your doctor about
splitting the pills, or getting a prescript
ion with reduced mgs if possible...for the most gentle approach to your step downs.
I also always recommend checking out our Resources
at the top of the main forum page here for great self help coping skills that will help you through this process....and beyond!
Best wishes, congratulations...and keep posting with us if you find it helpful! We understand, care and are always here to listen and support.
