Sorry to hear your weekend was rough, hope it improves soon.

I have been pretty pleased with progress here. I have been off Luvox entirely for about 5-6 days now and it is going fairly well. The electric head kind of comes and goes instead of being constant, and is not nearly so annoying in terms of intensity. It seems that if I am concentrating on something like a book or typing etc, I don't notice it as much. Of course I'm not moving my head and eyes much during those times, either.

I have had a LOT more zest and energy throughout the day since coming off SRRI''s a good thing too - work is a real circus right now (I wonder if I am the clown?) :-{|

Sleeping is a bit more problematic, mostly because I let my Trazedon rx get too low before ordering by mail, so I have been au naturel at night for a few nights too. Fortunately, because of my newfound energy level, I seem to be getting by on 3-4 hours of sleep a night without serious problems, but I know it won't stay that way too long. I'll start winding down if things don't improve. Hopefully the Trazedon will show up before too long!

Another nice thing is, I seem to be getting some emotions again, although slowly. The LUVOX pretty much clamped me at a very narrow low-level range in most cases...which was good when I was in therapy mode. I would actually like to have a nice hard cry, like you mentioned the other day - just because I know it would feel so good afterward!

Best of luck - keep me posted!
