Recommended Posts

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

https://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/mental-health/treatments-and-wellbeing/stopping-antidepressants


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

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.
