    So the day i wasnt feeling great i had taken my daughter to the dentist to get a adult tooth out and she was crying hysterical and i was very nervous and i think thats why i felt that way that day.
    bc yesterday i worked out and felt great all day.

    regarding the crushing the pills im still not sure how i would get the perfect accurate amount. So now when i go down to 6 mg how do i crush it to get that amount?

    have a good day!

    Michele,

    If your tablets keep crumbling and you can't get accurate doses, that's where crushing comes in handy. When you get down to 6 mg, crush the whole tablet to powder (like I described before). Evenly divide the entire pile into 4 equal piles of 2 mg. Set one 2 mg pile aside. Take another 2 mg pile and split it in half (giving you two piles of 1 mg). Add together the 2 mg pile + 1 mg pile = 3 mg. Take 3 mg am & 3 mg pm.

    Of course, not having to crush would be ideal. The pill cutter I have could usually get pretty accurate pieces of 1 & 2 mg. Maybe get another cutter (to see if it works any better) so you don't have to worry about crushing for now.

      hey all hope your enjoying your weekend!
      yesterday i dosed down to 6mg and i feel really good.. ive been working out and keep positive thoughts.
      hope to be stable at this dose for a bit.
      i will ask my doc for 2mg instead of the 8mg pills this way it will be easier to get more accurate amount for now.

      kat hope your doing well...i will check your thread and say hi in case you dont see this!

        Hey Michelle. I was working with the 8mg pills using a good pill cutter for a long time. Do you have one? When I got down to low doses I asked and got switched to the 2mg pills. Then I did the crushing just like Kat mentioned. I was scared to crush them but it worked.

          Hey Auburn girl
          for some reason my pill cutter aint the best...hoping to go to the doc tomm and get some 2 mg pills and make my life easier till ill have to crush because that sounds pretty time consuming.
          thanks for you advice i really appreciate it!

            I was also going to add that getting a razor blade to cut your pills works well, too. You'd think the makers would have come up with a lower dose pill already, or something to make it a little easier to taper off this stuff. Let us know if you are able to get the 2mg!

              Hey
              So I was at the tmj specialist today and he examined me and spoke to me and he then was like what do u want for pain and I of course said I'm ok used to the pain now. I was happy I didn't try to get anything from him.
              I really feel good these days I am on my 3rd day at 6mg and defiantly feel good and stable but think I will stay here a few more days. I don't want to rush this i want to do it correctly for me.
              I didn't end up getting to the sub doc today bc I had to take my daughter to the dentist.
              Tomm I will def go bc I don't want him to get upset at me I was supposed to go there last week so don't want him to think I'm up to no good or something.
              I'll talk to you later
              Thanks for checking in

                They don't make a lower dose pill because they do not want anyone to taper off auburn. They want people to stay on subs rest there lives. The only thing they pharmacy companys are concerned about is money.

                  Michelle good to read you are on day 3 at 6 mg and feeling well. I see where you are going to try to get your Dr to give you 2 mg pills. What dose does he think you are taking a day right now? Just asking because I was thinking you told him 16 mg a day. If so I guess tell him you would like to drop to 14 mg. Best of luck in getting the 2 mg pills as I know it will make it easier to taper down with the smaller pills to work with.

                    I know! Isn't that horrible?! Man, these people don't know (or they do and don't care) that it ruins people's lives to stay on this >>>> for so long. Seriously.

                      Hey all
                      My doc if funny he gave me a script for 2 mg pills but for only 14 pills even though I told him o was taking 6 mg a day. I was honest with him bc I figured why not he never says anything bat tapering he is basically trying to get me back there next week to pay him another fee.
                      I'm feeling very jittery and nervous can this be from the drop?
                      I have been going thru some difficult stuff so not sure if that's what is causing it.
                      Hope all is well with everyone

                        When you last saw your Dr before today what did he write you a script for? Since you told him you were taking 6 mg a day if your last script was for more then 6 mg a day then he would know you have leftover from last script and that would be why he only gave you enough till you see him next week. As you taper down tell him you are taking 6 mg a day and not tapering so you can cut down time wise how many more times you need to see him. Sorry to see where you are feeling nervous today after you said yesterday you were doing well on day 3 at 6 mg. If you are going thru some difficult things right now then that may be the cause of it or maybe its from seeing your Dr today that you are feeling that way. Before you make your next drop make sure you are stable at 6 mg. Will talk to you later.

                          Defintly could have been that or the fact that I have been to every dentist in last few days with my daughter because she needs a tooth pulled and won't let anyone do it. I was at the dentist with her also today and I have been very stressed over this. I defiantly will not drop till this tooth comes out which I pray will be fri.
                          That's a great plan I will defiantly tell him I'm at 6mg even when I continue my drops. May I ask you how long you would stay at a dose...did you usually stay at the dose longer than 4 days?

                            Once I started tapering i spent 4 to 6 days at a dose. I know once i got down to 2 mg i did rest of my drops at 6 days. I somehow got it in my head that dropping every 6 days would make it easier when i jumped off. I never felt any of my drops and would feel stable after 4 days but went ahead and waited 2 more days before i would drop. I probably did not need to spend 6 days at each dose once i got to 2 mg but i did and it ended up working out well for me. This is just my opinion but if a person is tapering and something happens to them that is causing a lot of stress i think staying on a dose an extra day or two is a good idea. Hope the tooth problem is taken care of soon to relieve both your daughter and yourself. Talk with you later.

                                Hi Michele,

                                Good to hear you're making another drop. A 25% drop from 6 mg is 4.5 mg (not 4 mg). It definitely makes a difference. Dropping more than 25% at a time will likely bring on symptoms. Don't rush it.

                                Hope you have a nice Sat!
