I’ve been taking 2mg a day for a couple years, one dose at night. I decided I don’t want to take it anymore so I quit. A few days ago. What are some things that helped keep you out of your own head???
Take a lot of hot showers and Advil that was the only way I could get some sleep had a bad case of restless legs
Hi, Michael! I'm not clear on what medication you're taking, but with most psychoactive drugs you have to taper your dose slowly as per your doctor's instructions or you will experience discontinuation symptoms.
Did you just simply quit on your own?
Best regards, Wildcat
I always start out by responding with, everybody is different. If you have 100% made up your mind to be done... I’ll get right to it because the best way to “keep you out of your own head”, is to put your phone/computer away and stop reading blogs like these. They can really psych a person out because you never let your mind stop thinking about it. You need to hydrate, take a multi-vitamin, and eat healthy food. No processed garbage. Again, just give your body something good to work with, it’s been through a lot already. Break your routine. Do something you’ve never done.
Find some high quality 'Liposomal' Vitamin C for the next two-weeks, keep your hands and mind involved in a pleasurable experience. Best of luck as 90% of the battle is psychological...
The vitamin C was huge when I jumped off 1mg. I used sodium ascorbate and dosed about 3 to 5 grams every 3 hours and it made such a difference. Definitely recommend vitamin C. I barely had any physical symptoms except sleep issues, which is still an issue now at day 20. Without Ambien and Valium I barely get any sleep but only take them a few times a week and try to let my body just do it's thing.
