Bluish1864: How to Taper from 50mg Amisulpride.


Recommended Posts

I would like to know how to taper from 50mg Amisulpride. Afaik, there is no tablet below 50mg for Amisulpride. So I have to convert tablets to liquid or split the tablet. 

 

I am not taking any other medications.

 

My sleep quality gets reduced for 50 days whenver I reduce my dosage. After 50 days of reducing dosage, sleep is good.

I did cold turkey a few months ago in October 2023 for 30 days when I stopped taking 50mg Amisulpride.

 

After 30 days, hallucinations came back. So I started taking 50mg Amisulpride again.

Hello, and welcome to Surviving Antidepressants. We are a peer support forum to assist in tapering off psychiatric drugs safely, or recovering from psychiatric drug withdrawal.

 

This topic is for anything relating to you, and any questions you have. Please do not start another topic.

 

 

 

The reason you are experiencing sleep disturbance after each drop is because you are reducing by 50% at a time. If you follow our guidelines to reduce by no more than 10% each month you should be able to tolerate withdrawal symptoms better. For example 50mg > 45mg > 40.5mg> 36.45mg etc.

 

 

All the answers you are looking for regarding tapering and antidepressant withdrawal are on this site. Please search around and continue to read as much as you can manage. Use the site search function to search for specific words or phrases, such as drugs or symptoms.

We only recommend two supplements. Omega 3 Fish Oil and Magnesium. Both should be introduced separately and increased slowly.
