Hello, I am currently having monthly Xeplion (paliperidone) intramuscular injections at the dose of 50mg per month. I have been taking Xeplion for the last 3 years or so with the exception that I tried to cut down and stop with the Ok to try from my psychiatrist but I knew at the time very little if anything about withdrawal and was told nothing and it did not go that well at the end. I first started at the dose of 75mg per month, now I am on 50mg. I would like to cut down and stop (gradually) with a plan but I don't know of any psychiatrists/doctors that are very supportive, understanding and educated about going along with with this and being able to help ease with the prescriptions etc without judging me too much also.. I don't know what is the best way and things to say to my current psychiatrist for him to understand and give me another "chance" again without judging me too much if I decide to stay with him for the time being. Thank you. I have been having Xeplion (paliperidone) intramuscular injections per month for the last 3 years or so. I started on the dose of 75mg per month, now I am on 50mg. I did try to cut down and stop the medication with the ok to try of my doctor but I knew at the time very little if anything about withdrawal and was told nothing and it did not go that well at the end. Before all of this, I have taken psych drugs (mainly antipsychotics, I think) but never for very long periods of time and I did not have any trouble stopping them.
