Dex day one

Here we go again. It’s the first day of four days of dex for me (at 40 mg/day).

When I take dex, I feel really speedy. I notice a more rapid heart rate, I feel very jittery, I talk a lot, have trouble sleeping and become easily agitated. My knee joints want to stop working too. They seem really weak. It all gets better a few days after I’ve finished the 4 days.

To combat most of the symptoms I take xanax and I do acupuncture twice a week instead of once. Acupuncture really helps me to relax, so I recommend it for that, if for no other reason.
