Hi all. I've made the decision within the last couple of weeks to get off all my daily meds. I have been doing it slowly of course, no cold turkey. I was taking topamax, zoloft, percocet etc.. I would like to have a 2nd child and for me it was an easy choice to choose a baby over meds that have minimal effect anyway. But I just know I'm going to need some support the next couple of weeks. Even though my detox is slow and Dr. recommended, i'm dizzy and sick and hypersensitive with pain right now. The thing is, I've been on meds so long, sometimes I don't even know if they are really helping and how much and I don't think I will until I've cleared it all out and started over again. Okay, that is all, just a regular old rant I guess!
