I've felt great taking them, the most beneficial to this med besides the pain relieving aspect has been the anxiety relief, energy/mood boosting has worked wonders, changed my life. For quite awhile now, I've been feeling horrible, I've not had the same affects, my question after awhile do they just stop working, am I putting myself in constant withdrawal from not uping my dose? Or do they just stop working after using them long term... I would love to stop as I don't want to have to take more or up my dose, BUT one day of not taking them is a nightmare... The worst! would also like to know a tapering schedule to wean off safely. ThX!
