Back at the end of June I posted about having some issues and with advice and evaluating the data I realized that I had been dropping too many beads too quickly. Especially taking into consideration that as I drop dose each bead is a higher percentage of the new dose. Thread here:
I stabilized at 24 beads for a couple of weeks and started dropping one bead every two weeks than about every week. TBH I haven't been keeping as careful track of when to drop a bead. Now I'm down to 15 beads (of a 30 mg pill). It has taken me 4 months to go from 24 beads to 15 beads. Thinking that maybe I got too conservative with tapering? I'm just soooo tired of doing this. Especially since my treatment approach has been to try to only change one thing at a time so I can better gauge cause and effect with treatments.
So I'm back for more advice especially from people who have successfully tapered. At this point I'm taking 1.2 mg of Cymbalta. I'm wondering is my body even recognizing it at this point? There is part of me that wonders if I couldn't just successfully go cold turkey from here. There is part of me that is scared of my bodies reaction to zero Cymbalta. Even if I reduced one bead every 5 days at this point it would be about 2.5 months of tapering still.
I definitely don't want to screw this up at the finish line. How did your experience go at the end? Anything you would have change? Advice?
