Well, I'm back from the clinic and I have my meds but aside from the dizzy feeling I feel fine even a bit hyper and happy ... and I haven't even had my second coffee yet.

Go figure ... it would be the first time I end up with wacky side effects. Seroquel made me lose weight at an alarming rate ... and so did Effexor though at at slower rate, zyprexa gave me seizures ... so I'm sort of expecting the far-out weird SEs.

You'd think that the withdrawal from 300 would be worse that that from 75 ... I mean I can "feel" when I've missed a dose and what not ...but perhaps it was because I was expecting total hell that this just seems well .. so mild.

Being on Zyprexa made me 10 times more dizzy than I am right now ... so maybe thats what makes it feel so "tolerable". I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow ... by then it will have been 3 full days without it.

But if it doesn't get any worse than this, I can definately live with it ... heck ... I could probably even work like this ... who knows, maybe for some people, going off cold turkey is better than tampering off.
