I've come down from 90mg a day (was on that for maybe 3 years).
Started 60mg a day on March 18 2017. No side effects, except a day or twonof tiredness.
Went down to 30mg a day on April 18 2017. Horrible side effects. Brain zaps, headache, muscle pains only lasted a week or two. It's the stomach issues that gor me. Randomly regurgitating food/water/bile. Acid reflux. Stomach pain on a daily basis. Going between diarrhoea and constipation.
Ended up at the hospital with the pain. Got referred for an endoscopy, but it showed nothing but mild inflammation. Omeprazole helped the reflux/regurgitation calm down but did nothing for the pain. It eventually settled down about 3 weeks ago.
Took a notion to stop the 30mg a day as I was feeling ok again. Didn't like the sound of breaking the capsules for bead counting. Took my last one on Sunday 9 July. First three days were fine and I thought I'd gotten away with it. Then it hit: crying jags, brain zaps (up to 40 an hour), flu like symptoms, sore throat and muscles.
I've been taking omega 3 fish oils,vitamin b complex and vitamin d. Brain zaps are down to a few a day, which is manageable, but the stomach pain is back with a vengeance. Anything I ate at the weekend just went through me. Randomly regurgitating food again (no warning or gagging, will be just walking about). The constant pain is getting me down. I seem to be back to constipation. The thought of eating makes me nauseated, but I'm still hungry!
Just needed to rant. I'm so tired all the time I could cry.
