I guess I meant serotonin uptake? Whatever one gets when they go off cold turkey - which is what I did one time several years ago. OK, I have only been on 25 mg. a little more than 3 weeks, but I have so many health issues right now, including severe stomach problems, that I don't feel I need the extra chemical right now. When one weans, is it a matter of breaking the tablet smaller and smaller, or is it a matter of increasing days between doses? Thanks
