> Robert, Thank you for the advice and i really appreciate the encouragement.

Hi - I've been tapering off EFF XR for the last six weeks. If it gets unbearable see about going back on at 37.5 if your doc lets you.

I have been tapering so slowly that below 37.5 I have been pulling apart the tablets and taking 1/2 of the granules one day and then a little less the next. I have been doing this until three days ago when I was down to ten of the granules (probably 5 mg of EFF XR) and then stopped altogether.

But it has NOT stopped the shocks!! They continue day and night especially after exercise. They have reduced in intensity somewhat, maybe 10% over the last two days, but it is still difficult to enjoy my vacation time when I am being continually zapped!

Gravol helps at night when I get nauseous, a bit of tylenol during day for headaches.
