Re: How are things progressing Isap

Caro Thanks ever so much for your kind message. The JW mailed this morning to say he had received the package! He will bring to me on Wednesday. Now I'm back up to 3 x 37.5 of venlafaxine until then. As for clonazepam, I will continue trying to come off it, knowing I have backup if things go wrong. ...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs, Caro Just to let you know that I checked the status of my wife's packages online this morning and it said the first package had arrived (for collection at the main post office)! I know I will still be worrying until I have the stuff in hand but the worry won't be as mega as the past few ...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Thanks for your prompt reply, especially as you're feeling unwell. My brother has contacted the embassy urgently but I can't see how they can help. If they could find out why package delayed that might set mind at rest. The JW would just mail "not here yet". I asked him to get a...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs I tend to agree with what you said I'm down to 75mg now. I'll do that for 2 weeks then a week on 37.5. Hopefully my wife's packages will have arrived by then. As far as I can see, being on nothing is better than being on something that isn't working. I rang some pharmacies today. Incredib...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs, Caro I know I am looking at worst case scenarios here. I think we're all familiar with that way of thinking. I haven't been on venlafaxine very long so weening off if I have to do that may be ok. I started weaning off the benzo today. One quarter tablet every 10 days. The JW all credit t...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Caro, Debs

If you read my previous two posts, am I being too drastic, or sensible? Any comments would be appreciated

Re: How are things progressing Isap

I've just decided, for my own peace of mind, to assume that I won't be able to get any further supplies of medication and come of venlafaxine and clonazepam while I still have enough stock to do so. I'm okay with Quetiapine right now because I have a large surplus. I know it's probably unnecessarily...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Damn, in a bad way right now. JW2 mailed to ask me which pharmacies sell venlafaxine. Apart from the fact he's bought it for me before, how am I supposed to know? He has an undated prescription just for emergencies like this. I've had to reduce venlafaxine by 37.5 which shouldn't make a huge differe...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Suicide is one of those irrational fears. You don't have to do it. My main strategy as highlighted in self-help books is to make up a short song mocking suicide and recite it every time you have that thought. You can choose your own tune. Poems and limericks also good. Give it a try God b...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

I think your JW chap has a wee problems Hello Debs Yes I enjoyed that comment. I was thinking of asking him to buy me some OTC medicine for nausea but it's a guarantee he'd get the wrong stuff. Plus the fact it wouldn't work anyway. He is one of the most exasperatingly inept persons I have ever met...
