what's the jumping off dose for seroquel? I'm planning it to be 2,25mg. I wonder in what dose others have jumped off?

just letting people know that my jump off from 2,25 was successful. jumped off in Feb 2018, and withdrawal wasn't particularly more bad than usual. Felt great for some time - reduced need for sleep and increased feelings and creativity. then withdrawal kicked in but after that subsided, I'm feeling so much better without seroquel. and I'm sleeping much better now, it's kind of a natural sleep.

Here is an example of the output for a 20mg taper (though just an example!!)

Month Dose

1 20.0

2 18.0

3 16.2

4 14.5

5 13.0

6 11.6

7 10.4

8 9.3

9 8.2

10 7.3

11 6.4

12 5.7

13 4.9

14 4.3

15 3.7

16 3.2

17 2.7

18 2.2

19 1.8

20 1.5

21 1.1

22 0.8

23 0.6

24 0.3

25 0.0

This wouldn't be a 10% taper.

No, it isn't.  It starts off that way but is a good bit faster.  The drops at the end are way too fast (going from 0.6 to 0.3 is a 50% drop).

First off this post is over five years old, we've come up with a lot of better information since then.  Yes it is not a 10% taper.

 

The easiest way to calculate a 10% taper is to multiply your current dose by 0.9.  This will give the weight of your next does. Continue on building each calculation on the last to get the complete story.  OR
