        Hey there. Glad to see you made your first drop and all is well. You're on your way!

        You will be just fine as long as you continue to drop by 25% only when stable.
        Have a good day.

                  Wierd.....this post got delayed for some reason.

                  Good to hear you're having only minor issues since the drop.

                  Good for you!

                    Wow. Felt pretty bad today until I took my 2nd and final dose for the day a few minutes ago. Forgot the feeling...

                      Dax: This is not unusual. Though you should have enough sub in your system to carry this drop. You should be taking 4.5mg. morning and 4.5mg. about 6-8 hours apart. Get a good multi-vitamin with magnesium and potassium. You're getting great advice here from Kat and Alex.

                        Daxter like Rose mentioned this is not unusual. Heres the thing about a sub taper to keep in mind. People who don't use drugs of any kind wake up some days and don't feel all that great sometimes. They just don't feel 100% that day for some reason. I have been off subs for over a year now and I have those days myself where I feel sorta blah like. When we are tapering off of subs if we feel bad for some reason it might have nothing to do with the taper but we always blame it on the taper. Plus part of the taper is mental also and we tend to over think things. I believe you are on day 4 at 9 mg now. Roberts taper plan was designed for people that were just starting out on subs and involved taking as small amount as possible to start out at. I am not posting this to discourage you in any way but you have been on subs for 2 years so your taper is probably going to take more time then a newcomers is that starts out at a low dose. In other words the 4 day drops might not be enough time for you. A good thread for you to check out would be the one by Ken2727 who has been clean since Dec 1. He was I believe on subs for over 2 1/2 years before he found this site and then started using the taper plan on here. For now since you look like today you were having minor problems I would stay at 9 mg at least another day and see how you feel before you even think about dropping. It is perfectly fine not to drop every 4 days. I was only on subs for 4 months and did a lot of my taper on a 6 day schedule. Keep posting how you are doing and start taking the supplements Rose suggested now while you are tapering. Also any extra exercise you can get start getting while your tapering as it will pay off in the long road. Will talk to you later

                          Hello and welcome here Daxter .

                          Glad to see someone else who decided to get off this sub merry go round ( mean long term ) . You have some great people advising you here so I just wanted to give you my best wishes beating this . Like Alex said I was on subs for what wound up being right at 3 years ( over two on 16 mgs ) and used Roberts plan and the advice here successfully to get off Dec 1rst . It may not always be easy but it is very doable in my opinion so trust in this site and those posting to help you along . Like many have said before it may take a bit longer since you where on a higher dose for a longer time frame . Again, You have my best wishes !

                          Peace ,

                          Ken

                                OK my first day at 5mg. So far so good. Someone please confirm my math as it is not my specialty. Thanks!
