laurieshay if you are there, can you please help me with a taper scedule plan to bring my mgs level back down, or even one that will pretty much be near to compete taper. i was able to stretch my doses to atleast 3 1/2 to 4 hours between a dose. so im at 130 mg today, first dose was at 12 am where i woke with horrible wds and resless leg and arm syndrome and bodyaches, im thinking ill probably need to take a final dose as bedtime will near. so can you help me with a schedule with 76 3/4 of a pill since i take 32.5mg each dose. or do you think my final can be stretched out to before bed and at a lower dose, mabe 30 mgs, or even 28mgs, ty, leanne
Because you only have 80 pills for the week, I recommend you take 30mgs four times a day for the next 5 days, then drop to 25 mg four times a day for the remaining 2 days of the week which is a total of 80 pills. Stay at 25mgs four times a day for a week, then drop to 20mgs four times a day for a week, then 15mgs four times a day for a week, then 10mgs four times a day for another week, then half a pill four times a day for a week, then half a pill 3 times a day for a week, then half a pill 2 times a day for a week, then half a pill once a day for a week, then 1/4 of a pill once a day for a week, then stop.
The only problem is you are taking more than 80 pills a week right now. So if 80 pills is all you have, you are going to have to do 30mgs four times a day for 5 days, then drop to 25mgs four times a day for the remaining days of the week which would be a total of 80 pills for the week. Make sense?
Let me know if you understand what I have suggested,
