Thank you Fishinghat as always you have replied so quickly.

 

I think I have about 50ish left after counting 230 out every night. I have gone back to 210 and will stay there for a while as this has frightened me again to drop.

I will keep to your plan of just 1 bead a week from then on.. I can wait another year I guess!!! 

 

Does such a long taper help in the long run??  I guess everyone is different

Generally the withdrawal is the same but less severe with a long withdrawal. Also, hopefully when you drop 1 bead every week that will go well and then you can try 1 bead every 6 days etc.

Hi Flower - sorry to hear of the situation and the unfortunate result - you poor thing.

 

I would have said exactly the same. Always give a dose adjustment time and don't panic. Remember a jolt up-dosing can be just as bad as down-dosing. Sounds like you have hit the proverbial withdrawal wall which most seem to do. This was a nod to tell you to start putting the brakes on. Find you new pace as Hat says and you will be fine. Might be a little dicey as you get to the last few beads, but all in time.

 

There is a post with all the known brands and amount of beads on here somewhere, but with my head in its present state, it would be like trying to find a fart in a Jacuzzi....

 

Hat might have it marked somewhere, or it'll be a case of the search function, but it is here... somewhere.... :)

Your not going to believe this but I have bead count data on 9 brands but not the Eli Lilley Cymbalta brand. That what I used and I did not even make a note in my journal. Well that just goes to show you 'don't do what I do, do what I sat'.   lol  I do remember that it was around 330 but I can't swear to it.

Comic set during WW2?

 

But I remember a TV series in my youth (sadly not childhood) called Raggy Dolls which also featured a Sad Sack - but no Hat... you are not a Sad Sack :)

IUN  yes I'm struggling after going up 20 beads with morning Anxiety, I have managed to wash my hair and clean my teeth so that's a positive. I was supposed to go away yesterday so feeling a little sorry for myself whilst my husband in Vegas!!!  at least I now have a week to recover.

 

Fishinghat   thank you for always making things seem ok

I can well understand that. Yes - use the time wisely and get some much needed rest. 

 

Anxiety can be a tough one as it can invade when you simply want to rest! I understand this only too well. Hope you level out soon and can continue your steady drop.
