Going to do a fade out
« on: April 16, 2014, 02:27:25 am »
Or if you want to call it a jump date: April 23.

I had gotten down to .008 mg Ativan and jumped, then four days later had a crisis, went back to "the last known dose at which I was very functional" (as recommended somewhere) which was .032 mg and been holding at that for 3 days. I will taper down slowly 1 ml per day from now on until I reach zero.

.032
.028
.024
.020
.016
.012
.008
.004
.000 April 23
