Looking for information that I read previous


Recommended Posts

Hello looking for information I read previous on here.  I can only remember it was about zoloft and thresholds.  Mean you could reduce by a certain amount without that much backlash due to this threshold ,but the problem is no one know this threshold and it differs for everyone.  It was a lengthy explanation.  Thank you.  Gigi

Hi Gigi-- I took the liberty to remove your name from the previous post and replace it with your user name. We try to keep the site as anonymous as possible for the safety of the members.

20 years on Paxil starting at 20mg and working up to 40mg. Sept 2011 started 10% every 6 weeks taper (2.5% every week for 4 weeks then hold for 2 additional weeks), currently at 7.9mg. Oct 2011 CTed 15oz vodka a night, to only drinking 2 beers most nights, totally sober Feb 2013.

Since I wrote this I have continued to decrease my dose by 10% every 6 weeks (2.5% every week for 4 weeks and then hold for an additional 2 weeks). I added in an extra 6 week hold when I hit 10mg to let things settle out even more. When I hit 3mgpw it became hard to split the drop into 4 parts so I switched to dropping 1mgpw (pill weight) every week for 3 weeks and then holding for another 3 weeks.  The 3 + 3 schedule turned out to be too harsh so I cut back to dropping 1mgpw every 4 weeks which is working better.

Final Dose 0.016mg.     Current dose 0.000mg 04-15-2017
