... increments. I was feeling great! Until today (yesterday I put the 12 on). Well. Let me say not totally great, but I had energy only on two step downs did I get restless legs. Sleep has been VERY hard to come by no matter what I do. Emotionally , well I have bipolar and the kind I have is hypomania/ depression, however I rapid cycle through out the day. It was under control until week two! Thankfully I caught it in time and got on a med.. Question is I am starting to have. No appetite, stomach pain, nausea and very moody. Like!E get out of my way! YIKES! So how long does this last? I so want to sleep!!
Yikes! I thought my pain doc weaned me fast, 100mcg to 12 mcg in 30 days! I, too, was ok til on the 12mcg. I was told it depends on length of time you were on them, but my experience was it took 2 weeks before I could even function, a month before I felt like myself. As for sleep it was 72 hrs before I slept at all, 7 days before I slept all night. Everyone is different, but this was my experience. I'm so sorry you're going through this. I will tell you also taking otc anti-diarrhea drugs help, as does the script drug gabapentin (I take it for neuropathy. ) with withdrawal symptoms.
