  1. quick update, had a bit of a wobble around xmas as i got confused with my dates and went straight from 1 tablet every 3 days to 1 every 5 days. Since then I went to every 4 days and now to every 5 days. Everything seems to be OK so far. The fatigue I was getting orginlly is long gone. Im now approx 18 months in on my taper which sounds crazy but I wish Id done it this slowly way sooner. Once I get to one tablet a week, at that point will assess just knocking it on the head depending on how Im feeling. Stay Strong all
  2. Hi, Update: Have had little to no fatigue for around a month now and have even upped my exercise regime to 3x a week and I havent done that in a few years (mix of general tiredness and slow recovery from gym sessions). Weirdly I now seem to be recovering from exercise a lot better than previously? Unsure if this is to do with less SSRI in my system or just a coincidence? Overall, feeling positive so as off this week dropping to 20mg tablet every 3 days so going from 42% of normal dose to 33%. Setting reminders in the app I mentioned previously. Next step would be every 4 days or 25%. Cheers all!
  3. Another update: Now taking 20mg tablets every Monday, Wednesday, Friday with weekends off for last 2 weeks. Have felt much more energised this week. Might be that ive turned the corner with the fatigue - might be because I havent been drinking much in last 2 weeks. Feel good overall and been doing lot of exercise. Definitely the furthest ive ever got and im quietly hoping that maybe ive gone below my therapeutic level my body/brain is finally remembering and beginning to fill in the gaps. Going to do at least another month at this level before going to maybe just Monday, Friday or every 3rd day. Recommenced phone app called 'My Therapy' which you can set to remind you to take pills on odd patterns of days. Still looking at end December to come off completely. One year process which has ended up coinciding with lockdown which has probably been of benefit to me as life is a lot slower. Best wishes to everyone going through 'the taper'!
  4. Hi, Just a quick update from me. Still on 10mg prozac an the fatigue seems to be coming and going. Depresssion also under control but im having to be very careful not to drink too much or overdo it in any way as that is when I can start to feel things are a bit hopeless. Goign to stay on same regimen until further notice. Cheers everyone!
  5. Hi guys, Thanks for your feedback and words of support. Still feeling tired but apart from that holding up pretty good. I think im going to hold at this dose (20mg every other day so 10mg average) for at least another month to see what happens. My next step would be to go to 6 x 20mg over a 2 week period (roughly 8.5 mg average). So for me that will be weekends off and then Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Seems to me to be a workable way of tapering slowly? Will update here if anything changes. Therapeutic for me to write about this and hopefully others can benefit from my experience. Btw happy to chat or answer any questions about 20 years+ experience on these drugs! Cheers all - stay well!
  6. I hope you had a fantastic day :)
