My problem may have been an unsteady dose but my doc and I got into an aurgument over my dose. I was on 2.5mg and he wanted to put me back on 4mg. I will never get off sub!!! It causes weird side effects w/ other meds and I want off!!! It's been almost one year on sub over taking 2 tab of 5mg loratab for 3 months!!!! I know most of you have had positive experieces w/ sub but it has ruined my relationships with my family. Higher doses make me sleep and my doc said that was not a side effect of sub. In Feb. i was taking .5 every 2-3 days. He inc. to 4mg for 4 days and got back to 1mg March 1. I just don't want it to stack up in my system, esp. when I was almost off. During our aurgument he said he would get me off and gave me an aggressive taper schedule and said I wouldn't have bad w/d. I knew that wouldn't be true b/c I had been on 3 mg for almost one month. He wants me to stay on 3mg for a month but I started taking Neuronton and the most sub I can take is 2.5mg. I had been on that dose for 2 wks when I saw him and it made him mad. He told me I just wanted to be in control. Also, found out that my chronic mono is reactivated and that is prob. the cause of the fatigue (prior to neurontin) and joint pains. I think if it were w/d I would have had more symptoms such as sleepless (which I had the opposite), sneezing, diarrhea, etc. I don't know if another doc can help me now. I need to taper but I don't know how fast. I was tapering fast until March. Then my dose yo yoed. I guess I will stay at 2.5 for a month and not tell him. With the mono, I guess now is not a good time to taper. I just want my family back. My dad accused me of taking narcotics b/c I sleep alot. He has been taking loratab for 2 mon. himself. He is likely to get dependent too. My husband and I have been going to counceling and he wants to separate. My 13 yr son doesn't want to be in the room w/ me. I desperately need prayers!!!!!!
