PRINT OUT: Leaflet - Guidance on stopping antidepressants by Royal College


Recommended Posts

Found this recently - it sums up  much of what is in this forum (in my opinion), and validates it as well!


May 2022 - tapered off.

January 2021 - .5 mg Lexapro

September 2010 - 7.5 mg Lexapro.




February 2019 - 10 mg Lexapro. Attempted tapering off 3-4 times (before finding this site).

April 2019 - Lorazepam .5 mg as needed (rarely used). CT March 2020



*I speak from my own experience. What I say is not medical advice. I'm not a doctor.

This has already been posted in the In the Media forum as well as added to the how-to-talk-to-a-doctor-about-tapering and the helping-family-understand topics.


Generally we would merge topics about the same thing but because this is VERY RELEVANT and needs to be publicised I will leave it here in the tapering forum as well.
