Our expert says:
Eish, this is something that can best be indiidually tailored to the indiidual patient by the prescribing doc. And I don't believe ANY doc has earned his fee if he prescribes such meds without discussing in detail that there are some potential problems when the drug is stopped and how to best reduce the dosage when coming off it.
As with so many things in life, when one is "desperate" to come off the drug, the fastest way may seem slow, but a way that seems quicker but takes longer, as one might need to go back and repeat a step of two, is usually not a great choice. Why not give the doc a call, and plan together a better way to use the week, chemically, till your next appointment ?
Kitty says thanks - all scratches greatfully and gleefully accepted.
