Symptoms started Day 21 - Vivid Dreams

Day 22 - Burning Sensation throughout body

Very likely that your taper was too fast.  You might check with your doc on a taper schedule.  By only being on 9 days, your symptoms shouldn't last very long.


A prayer for you!

Since i am already 10 days into the withdrawal..and have had no seizures, please tell me i don't have to taper..i hope the symptoms will end soon...and that i don't have any protracted symptoms..which i believe are common with long time users only??

Physical dependence after less than a month of usage? Wow. I was physically dependent after exactly 30 days also though so it's not that surprising I guess. I don't think you should reinstate as long as your life is not in danger. Stay strong. Hopefully your path of healing will be a quick one.
