Toot61: successful withdrawal from Saphris?


Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm new to this site.  I have been diagnosed with metabolic depression, the type that responds to medication, which I've had since I was,16. I am now 57 years old. I was on Cymbalta for the last couple of years but recently switched to Aropax. I was also prescribed a small dose of antipsychotic in 2014 and after trialing Seroquel and then Olanzapine I was given Saphris.  This seemed to work best for morning drowsiness however is proving near impossible to come of. I have managed to get it to one twentieth of a 5mg wafer but can't seem to drop that last"speck".  Just wondering if you can dissolve a wafer in water, and if anyone out there has been able to get off this drug?!
