    I cant believe I feel as good as I do after going off Elavil and Lunesta.

    The sid effects going off were terrible and then the Lunesta made me feel terrible as I never felt so disorionted before when I was on it.

    I am now on Herbal remedies and hope to go to go to someone in the New Year to get my Candida under control as thats why I have so many alleries.

    I take Ginkgo Biloba and hopefully after a while it will help with my neuralgia and FM pain and it is also helping with my memory already. I am taking MSM Sulphur powder for my Arthritis and I am also giving it to my little dog who has Arthritis and I can believe the improvement in him after two weeks. He is 13 and was finding it hard to go for a walk. He is back walking and more alert than he ever was.

    I am also taking Flaxseed Oil which I hope will help with my skin and Excema. At night I rub Lavender Oil into my wrists and neck and put some on my pillow and I sleep nearly all night.

    I have also cut out wheat and use Rice Flour instead and take Rice Milk. I never had so much energy. The drugs I have been on had me so dopey I didnt want to do anything.

    I hope I will not have to go back on Prescription drugs again as the doctors havent a clue how they affect people that suffer from Chemical Sensitivities like me. I was never without rashes and hives which are now much better. My IBS was also worse and has also improved a lot.

    I have also lost weight and am drinking Green Tea and Red Bush tea which doesnt contain any Caffeine.

    Anyone thinking of going off meds. be careful and do it slowly. I also get Indian Head Massages once a week which really helps with my TMJ problem.

    Glad to hear things are going better for you. Are you still painting? How's the weather in Ireland?

    I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Love, Mikie

    It took me at least a month to go off it. I halved the 25m which was hard to do with the shape of the tablet. I took a half for two weeks and then quartered it for another two weeks and then stopped it.
