    Did you go ‘cold turkey’ or slow taper?

    @Jiri Slow taper - I know that going cold turkey is dangerous, so thought if I cut out slowly I could avoid this, but I guess not lol.

    @OnceUponaTime Over a few weeks. I was on a low dose to begin with (15mg) so I broke the pill into 3/4, then 1/2 etc.

    I see, maybe you needed more than a few weeks Tanni...

    Maybe low dose diazepam would help? I personally don't like SNRI's or SSRI's. Too many side effects for me.

    Talk to your doctor and don’t taper alone! Follow their instructions. It’s very important.

    @Tanni A wise decision. I think it's only a temporary flare-up

    Thanks guys. The doctor's instruction was actually just to stop cold turkey, believe it or not, because it wasn't a high dose. But we all know what doctors are like. I wonder if the AD was suppressing Tinnitus slightly, or at least the anxiety. I'll try the Diazepam :)

    @OnceUponaTime I'm trying not to panic. It's eased a little bit, but the fear of it increasing again is terrible. I'm braced for it to keep zapping me all the time. I think this was where the AD's were probably helping. I'll see how it goes :)
