Author Topic: Can you hit a wave while holding your dose for a period of time?  (Read 197 times)

Hi all
Holding at 11mg and had a good month.
Then husband returned to work and I did not. Not sure if that is the reason but I had a whoosh that dropped me back into a horrific wave.
Has anyone else had this while pausing their taper???
Need advice please.
I am feeling very demoralised and upset that I cannot get off these meds x

Absolutely!   Itís been part of the process for me.  I ride it out and then decide when it feels right for my next cut.

Recently Iíve had a wave of around 2 weeks.  Iím in it now.   I definitely think it is a result of my most recent cut.  I eliminated my midday dose altogether.  In the past Iíve had waves come out of nowhere though.

It all depends sometimes it lasts 2 weeks and sometimes 3 or longer. I just did a cut 13 days ago and I am still in pretty bad shape. Think I am going to hold for a while. My prior reduction before this one seemed to be going well and then after 2 weeks of doing good I got hit with a horrible wave which lasted for 5 weeks... Had no idea what brought it on. Everything about withdrawal is so unpredictable.  It is such a guessing game.
Good luck and hang in there!!

Not sure how I am holding on. I guess I am just determined to get off of this poison. I guess I keep believing that it will eventually end..
Hang in there!!
