I was taking 12 a day but I knew that was a little too much And my body doesn't know that I went from 12 to 8 as long as it's getting what it wants. So I moved it to 8 a day for two weeks and then 6 a day for 2 weeks and four a day for 2 weeks then two a day for two weeks , and as of Friday September 13th I no longer took a pill I use Excedrin at night for bad headaches (just one) and have only taken three, I also use CBD 18:1 for anxiety and the shakes it also helps me sleep. I've been given a muscle relaxer and so far refused to take it even though I'm on day 8 of withdraws and my neck on the right is stiff. I have also no intentions of staying on the CBD for more than seven more days. I have increased my appetite and the nights are the longest.but if you really want this and keep saying it to yourself you will get this. I've been on Fioricet for 24 years I want this I'm hoping by September 30th which is almost three weeks will be the end of it fingers crossed
what i would do is to not take any for one to two days then lower the dose slowly and when he wants to take more take the bottle and only keep out one day at a time this may take two weeks to get to your goal.
