Janm: wanting help for my son

Recommended Posts


I am here for my son. I told him to tell the doctor 10% But the doctor did not. He is going to go from 5 to 2.5. The dr went from 7.5 to 5 But only kept that for 2weeks. I am very concerned. My son is very passive and wants to get off this drug. He started Dec 2015. Should he be more asertive with the doctor?

Hi Janm and welcome to SA,


So that we are better able to offer suggestions it will be helpful if you would Please put your Withdrawal History in Signature.  Please include details for the last 12-18 months of  all drugs, dates, doses and discontinuations & reinstatements.  If you can't remember dates, please write it as "early March" or "mid-August".  Please provide a summary of any drugs prior to that which can just be listed with start and stop years. Please include all prescription, non-prescription drugs and supplements he is currently taking.


Please also answer these questions in a post (ie not in the signature):


1.  How old is your son?


2.  What was the reason for him starting the drug?


3.  What are his current symptoms?


4a. What was the reason for getting off the drug?  4b. Was he suffering side effects?  4c. If yes, what were they?


I'm going to list some links which I suggest you read and then you can ask questions here in this Intro/Update topic:

Why taper by 10% of my dosage?

Once we have the additional information we will be able to make suggestions based on your son's situation.
