« on: October 12, 2019, 03:08:47 pm »
I have been taking k pin for 7 years. went from 3 mg/day to 2 mg/ day then take as needed. I found some days that I didnt feel I needed any. then the next day I would get shakey and full of anxiety. I am with the help of this form down to .5 and going to hold there for a while feeling ok.

Mo,  As you, prior to tapering I took K on high dose, but prn and that's caused issues. Finally I starting holding at .5 mg K/day and it's better, however by no means is this comfortable.  Current christmas wish is to stabilize before moving forward.  Your taper from 3 mgK/day down to .5 mg is a big deal - congratulations  :thumbsup:

How do you feel on .5 K/day ?

Going from 1 mg to to .5 is a little shakey I might goto .75 mg see how that feels.

mo,  your suggesting a cut of 25%. IMHO ....I'd only cut 5 or 10% from 1 mg K, wait 10-14 days and see how that particular cut went.  With K, I don't feel the w/d effects until a few days later.   Just trying to help.

Your tapering according to your comfort level and good for you.  As you are aware, exercise is one key.  I'm glad your feeling alright.

when I got down to my last 0.5mg I began to use the liquid titration method. It linear and no drops, every day is a small taper down...I think its the only way to go.

Congrats and keep the faith. It will be hard, very hard but the end is worth it. I am 8 months out and much better...never go back, NEVER
