    Hi rumer , It really depends how long you were on it ? and how quickly you detoxed off it ? I was on it for 2 yrs plus & jumped off a rather big amount & it took 3 months just to even start to recover ! From other people I’ve know it takes a few months to wear off also & start to feel like yourself !! Your muscles hurt & sweats are common side affects also . I’d not go on it again ! It serves a purpose , But is never go on it again !! I hope you find it easier than I did .

    Hi @Rumer and @Fresh start

    Thanks for sharing your experiences.... It's definitely not easy. It seems that you two are doing a great job.

    How are you both doing so far? what are some strategies that have been working on your favor?
