On my way back down
Well, last night I started the process of weaning myself back down to the 5mg of Cipralex every second day that I had made it down to awhile ago. I want it to be a very gradual process, so I am taking it nice and slow.
I was still taking the 10mg per day that I had jumped up to between my mother's heart attack and my grandfather's death, but last night, I only took 5mg and today I was fine.
Tonight I took 10mg; my plan for the next two weeks is 15mg over two days (so 5mg one day and 10 the next). If that goes well for me, I'll start February back at 5 mg per day.
I still have all of the Ativan that my doctor prescribed; I haven't felt a need to use it yet.
Life is good; January is always our busiest month so there is always something fun to look forward to. Two anniversaries, two birthdays, parties, shopping, and this year we added starting a church with a great group of people and my hubby starting a new job after 8 years at his old one.
My anxious boy has been doing great as well; I was concerned about his return to school after Christmas break, but it was not even a little bit of a struggle getting him there. He just did it. No looking back. That boy is amazing. :)
So here I go, working my way back down the milligrams. :)
