Going off the meds

I decided a few weeks ago that I was going to go off Savella because it had stopped working, and when you are paying that much for a medication, it had better work really well. I’ve been putting it off though, because I have heard horror stories about weaning off it. Because it changes the way the chemicals in your brain work, it is a shock to your system when you stop taking it. People have said that going off it has caused migraines, vomiting, hallucinations etc. Well, I am on day 2 of my efforts to get off it. I cut my dose from 200 mg to 100 mg a day. Night one was pretty rough, lots of shaking, but on day 2 I haven’t really noticed any problems. I’m hoping the next few days will go as smoothly.
