I’m starting my lithium withdrawal journey after 21 years. On 21 January I reduced from 800mg to 700mg. It’s been a bumpy month with chest pains, back issues, distraction, foggy brain and a lot of sadness and grief. I am well supported by friends, family and therapist. Doctor does not object, and has proposed a taper schedule (4x monthly 200mg reductions). I plan to taper logarithmically and much more slowly than that. It’s a great relief to find a community, and I look forward to getting to know you on the journey. Jim
