It may take a while. Some people, they say, do well with Prozac added in. I didn't want to take anything by day 6 cause I figured it would be over any wasn't.

***Benadryl or something like it helps. St. John's Wort, Rescue Remedy, Valarium, SAMe, 5HTP, if you are not allergic to it, Tryptophan -- I'm allergic. Favorite food at my worst was small red potatoes, chocolate chip cookies. tomatoes maybe. Tea. Gingerale. Flan, but I couldn't keep it down. This coming from the original no sweets, low carb girl. Haven't seen her (me) since September. Make sure you get your vitamins, Omega3's are supposed to be really good, too.

I quit 150 mg all at once; so what I did might be worse, but it's possible that you may get better and then get sick again so be very patient with yourself. Tell everyone around you that you love them and to not take anything that you say or do now seriously. You probably won't want to talk to anyone for a while. Listening is easier.

Besides that, anything that makes you feel better and doesn't hurt you or someone else, especially laughter...this is good, but tears are okay, too. We're all with you. You'll be okay.
