Dosage Reduction

Hello all-

I have been on 150mg for 13 months now and it has helped me work through some serious baggage. I've just started to reduce my dosage (with consent from therapist) slowly so that I can go on my first "drug holiday." The meds have made me soooo extra sleepy, which wasn't a problem before. I'm trying to see how i respond without them.

I was taking two 75mg caplets every night. This past week I took 1 1/2 75mg caplets each night (dumping out half of one). So far the effects haven't been *too* bad. I've had kind of a mild steady headache and I've been just a little agitated. I feel hot and restless at night when I'm trying to sleep. I'm going to stay on this dosage for another week to let things even out before I reduce it another step.

Here's my projected schedule:

(1 year: 150mg)
2 weeks: 112.5mg
2 weeks: 75mg
2 weeks: 37.5mg

I want to keep the list posted with my results so that others can see how this plan works.

Beth B
