KnightRider: Rapid reduction


Recommended Posts


Need your help.

Started  Buspirone,10mg and Duloxetine, 30mg at 1 x 2 weeks and then 2 x 4 weeks. 
Reduction - 1 x 4 days and then “none”.  
This is day 3 and it has been pretty rough.  Any recommendations would be great. Thanks

Welcome to SA, KnightRider.


I need a little clarification about your dosage.  


1. Did you take the 10mg Buspirone every day and for how long?


2.  What does this mean: "Duloxetine 30mg at 1 x 2 weeks and then 2 x 4 weeks"  Does it mean you took 30mg Duloxetine once a day for 2 weeks and then twice a day for 4 weeks?


3. What does this mean: "Reduction - 1 X 4 days and then none"  Does it mean you took 30mg Duloxetine once a day for 4 days and then none?


4.  Are you still taking Buspirone 10mg?


Once you've answered my questions, I'll be better able to help you.
