    Summary for March
    I made some progress, dropping from a steady 2mg./day down to 1mg. the gabapentin and Lyrica kept me from night sweats. They had been a problem any time prior to this if I missed a single dose. The Valium is a problem at this point because I am clearly taking it too often, and the problem will get worse before it gets better.
