This message board was all that got me through this past week of pure hell. I went from raging to crying. The brain zaps....zzzztttt... still there ocassionally, but not so completely mind numbing. I cried for several hours at a time, and often in the midst of tears I turned to this message board for support. Just knowing that I was not alone made each day livable.

These were my symptoms:
nausea, diarrehea, sleepiness, crying, raging, suicidal thoughts, zzzzaaappps, muscle weakness

----What made me feel better??----
This nice mixture of nature taken with food:
(these pills help your brain balance now that it is without artificial stimulation) I bought them at the local grocery store.

Omega 3 fish oil
B-Complex (you need at least 11 B's in there)
Magnesium 1000mg

-You can also add L-Tryptophan and L-Tyrosine (found at health food stores)-

oh yeah, and lots of mylanta

I hope my entry can help at least one suffering person out there. Btw, my tapering schedule was: 75 mg to 37.5 mg (one week) to nothing. Each day is hard, I know, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
