I have heard that a slow taper seems to work the best if you are really diligent.
Or if you have a loved one that can hold the medicine for you, and give them to you at the desired times. Not only that give you encouragement, and love and support.
After discussing my situation with my PCP, I found success coming off hydro by decreasing my dosage in thirds, meaning every third day reduce my daily dose, by 30% of what I was taking.
I still had WD symptoms, but no where near the absolute hell I went through the first time around. CT is not for me, I got too sick.
Hang in there kiddo, and reach out to the board and to friends
