I have been on medication for over ten years. Initially just antidepressants at first but then I was diagnosed bipolar so mood stabilisers and antipsychotics were also thrown in the mix. I decided to try to self manage a couple of months ago and my psychiatrist was not happy about it. She insisted my mother came with to my next appointment (I'm 33!) Coming off the mirtazapine was pain free with no withdrawal effects. The next step is the lamotrigine. I am slightly concerned as I have read about people doing incredibly slow tapers but at my appointment today she said to reduce from 400mg (200mg twice a day) to 300mg. To then stick with that for two months and then to go back and review. Is this too quick?
