My Gemini scale arrived this week with a set of glass graduated cylinders. I've read that the transition from solid to liquid dosing can be a little hairy. Can anyone help with suggestions for making the switch? Am currently taking ~8mg, in pieces, with a glass of water. I would like to be dosing completely in liquid form by the time my dose gets down to 5 mg in a few months. Should I just start dissolving all 8mgs now, or divide the dose into liquid and solid portions. If so, is there any ratio I should be targeting? I also have 00 gelatin capsules that I can fill with solid portions to conserve the bits that disintegrate to powder if necessary.
I would like to know if Amitriptyline can be dissolved in water to taper. I am helping my elderly mother who wants to start tapering off Amitriptyline 50mg, primarily because her doctor described this as a high dose that increases her fall risk. My mother lives with me. I am familiar with principles of slow safe tapering from my own experience at Cymbalta Hurts Worse.
