Improvemnts last 5 days
« on: March 19, 2013, 07:34:28 pm »
Hi BB

My withdrawal off xanax has taken a good turn over the last 5 days.
I was taking 1 Ambien CR 12.5 nightly and ran out. So I put my foot
down and didn't refill script 5 days ago.

I have had no discernible increase in sys and actually it has been the
opposite. My sys from xanax taper and withdrawals have seemed to 
lessen. Tinnitus and sleep disturbance still being the worst. Anxiety has
been reduced dramatically. Never had that before, it was a side affect
of both meds. CNS still a bit sensitive but if I could give up coffee that
would help. Stopping alcohol has made a BIG difference this attempt. 

In short, dumping ambien helped and will cut X again this week down to
.5mg per day since I am stable ATM. If all goes well may dump X next week.
I started taper around mid Jan from about 2 mg X a day. Couldn't really cut
the Ambien pill very easy so just stopped.

BTW I swim 3/4 days a week for 1hr. and that helps

Best to All BB on the road to recovery.

How are things still going with you with regard to the Ambien? I am thinking of going c/t . . .

Thanks -
