But as anyone who takes this medication and has tried to stop knows, the withdrawals are extremely unpleasant.The worst part of the withdrawals for me is not so much the physical symptoms but the mental symptoms: depression, anxiety and extreme mood swings. I would constantly find myself crying and find myself wanting to do nothing but lock myself in my bedroom, lay in bed and cry... I've even tried slowly weaning my dosage down slowly but I am still having no luck and finding it to be very difficult and nearly impossible! Does anyone with any similar experience have any advice or techniques on how I can successfully get through this?
