Recommended Posts

On it 6 months doc said to stop taking I did and had sx I never had before.  Started taking it again on it 2mg sx subsided.  Reduced to 1 mg per doc no major uptick in sx.  Cut to .50 mg a week ago noticed twitch like movements yesterday.  Holding for a week to see if they subside.  Will they?    Doctor says 6-8 weeks for it to stop.  Should I hold until they do?  I m taking 10 mg  lexapro have for years.  No plans to stop.

Hello, @Momof2


What is V? When we last saw you, you were taking risperidone and Lexapro. What exactly are you taking now, with dosages?


What are your symptoms?
