At last I hear someone else describe exactly what I feel! I feel that when I accidentally skip one day and it feels so awful, uncomfortable to where I just prefer not move or stand. But, being that it's only a withdrawal symptom from your body needing that constant fill to feel completely saturated, yes, it will eventually go away. It's common to ween your body by taking it every other day for several days, a week, eventually adding to gap while trying to also avoid feeling too miserable. Depending on how high your dose is also something to think about (always a good idea to inform yourself of lowest & highest doses used for particular med) May take a couple of weeks to feel free again. I wouldn't mind an update as to how long it takes to free ourselves from that horrible electric shocking sensations we go thru. HUGZ.
