Thank you, dear, I did not pay attention to the translation, the translation has been affixed and I thought it was English, I am sorry ... As for reducing or decreasing to 10%, it is very difficult. I tried with a syringe and it did not work, then I broke the pills to 2.5 milligrams and I also want to break the pills  2.5 to 1.25 mg What do you think?

 

Mutfael, I'm sorry, it looks like this question was missed earlier. Are you dissolving your pills in liquid or are you using a scale to do your taper? 

 

Once we know your method, we can answer your questions.

I tried to reduce it through a syringe or medical syringe, but I am looking at small granules that do not dissolve in water!

@MutfaelThe below quote is from the Tips for tapering off escitalopram (Lexapro). Please note that escitalopram/Lexapro is the same as Cipralex.

 

This advises using a normal saline solution instead of plain water. The instructions for this are below. This may help with the small granules that aren't dissolving in water. You may want to use a mortar and pestle to grind the pill into as fine a powder as possible before adding it to the saline solution. 

 

On 5/26/2011 at 10:16 PM, Altostrata said:

Do-it-yourself liquid
People report that they can make their own liquid from Lexapro tablets and water.

It is sparingly soluble in water, see http://www.drugbank.ca/drugs/DB01175 -- stability (shelf-life of dilution) is unknown.

 

 Escitalopram oxalate occurs as a fine, white to slightly-yellow powder and is freely soluble in methanol and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), soluble in isotonic saline solution, sparingly soluble in water and ethanol, slightly soluble in ethyl acetate, and insoluble in heptane. According to RxList,com.

 

Your best bet would be to use a homemade isotonic(normal saline) saline solution (9% salt in water) which is made by dissolving 9 grams(1.8 tsp) of table salt in 1000mL of water.  Preparing a Saline Solution  The NS(normal saline) should be good for up to a month to draw from.

Draw out or extract the amount of NS(normal saline) for your desired dilution, add to a separate, mixing vessel, preferably amber colored, and with a lid, then add in your escitalopram tablet or powdered tablet until it's dissolved.  Keep protected from light in the refrigerator, and best to remix a batch of your Lexapro (dissolved) at least every week.

I have two questions.. The first question is, is a 10% reduction in Cipralex considered too high?  Second question: I have now reached 10 mg Cipralex, and previously I was taking 15 mg, and it took 4 months to decrease until it reached 10 mg, and during the decreasing period I felt depression, anxiety, mood swings, lethargy, dizziness and fear of death. Are these withdrawal symptoms?  I hope the question is understood, thank you

Reducing by 10% of the prior month's dose is the maximum we recommend reducing. Many people find that 10% is too high and opt for a micro-taper. Please see:

 

Micro-taper instead of 10% or 5% decreases

 

You may want to reduce by very small weekly reductions instead of a larger monthly reduction. Please see:

 

The Brassmonkey Slide Method of Micro-tapering

 

If 10% is too high a reduction, you could consider 5% or even 3% per month. You will be the best judge of how fast to go. The goal is to be as healthy and functional as possible throughout your taper. There's no rush.

Yes, all of these are listed as withdrawal symptoms. It sounds like you were tapering too fast for your nervous system to handle. 

 

How are you feeling now? Have any of these symptoms gotten better?

I am very grateful to you for your help.. I started reducing it to 9 mg two days ago through a liquid medical injection and then I have been very depressed yesterday until now with suicidal thoughts that were at their peak this morning and then the depression reduced somewhat but I still feel depressed and fearful

To clarify, 4 months ago, I was taking Cipralex 15 mg, then I started decreasing the dose by 10% every month. Now I am taking Cipralex 9 mg, but through a medical syringe, a liquid may have been my reduction wrongly, I don't know.. I used 100 ml, then shake the liquid and get rid of 10%, then  Take the rest in the syringe

Here is the thread on Covid:

 

Coronavirus / covid19, and psychiatric drug tapering & withdrawal, Covid19 vaccine.

 

I think this is the first post where a member mentions getting the vaccine, so you could start here to read about how members were affected. 

 

Vaccines mentioned here

It really sounds like you're tapering too fast. You may want to only reduce by 3 - 5% going forward. Since you just reduced to 9 mg, you may want to updose a bit and see if that helps. If you don't want to go back up to 10 mg, you could go up to 9.5 mg.

Sure, melatonin is okay during withdrawal. Please note the advice in the first post of this thread to start at a low dose to see how your nervous system reacts.

 

Melatonin for sleep

 

On 4/6/2011 at 9:26 PM, Altostrata said:

Here's how to re-establish your sleep cycle with melatonin:

- Start with 0.25mg-0.50mg melatonin for 3-4 days.

- Take at the same time, nightfall (but, given that it's summer, not later than 8 p.m.), every night.

- If needed, gradually increase by 0.25mg for 3-4 days at a time.

- Use the lowest effective dose.

- Try to turn lights off or keep lights low after sundown. Your bedroom should be quiet and dark. Darkness triggers natural melatonin production. Artificial lighting, including staring into the computer, can give the wrong signal to your pineal gland. STAY OFF THE COMPUTER AT NIGHT.

- Keep to a very regular schedule -- this is what your circadian rhythm needs.

- Do NOT take melatonin regularly at any time but nightfall or you might scramble your sleep-wake cycle.

The main reason that called me to leave the drug or metaphorically (poison) is several things, the first of which is severe sexual weakness, meaning that sex has been completely non-existent for many months!  The other thing is lethargy and a lot of sleep, as I sleep for long hours, up to 16 hours a day, yet I feel lazy all day!  Also, fatigue when making the slightest effort and heart palpitations.. Also and most importantly, I did not benefit from the treatment, as my psychological state is fluctuating and does not settle down.. These are the main reasons

Mutfael, you had asked about taking melatonin earlier, but since you posted you're sleeping 16 hours a day, I don't think melatonin is something you need to add. Melatonin is for people who can't sleep. 

 

It's great you don't have insomnia, but having fatigue all day is not good. How is your diet? Are you heating plenty of protein and vegetables and avoiding sugar? Are you able to eat a healthy breakfast when you first wake up? That can help with fatigue.

 

Also, when people are sleeping that much, they tend to get dehydrated. Make sure you're getting plenty of water every day. Dehydration can also cause fatigue.

I felt insomnia a few days ago, as I could not sleep despite being tired and it seemed to be a withdrawal symptom in relation to food. My food did not change and I did not make sure to eat certain foods.

I want to tell you about my method of gradual tapering, and I hope you understand what I am saying.. Currently, I take 9 mg of Cipralex. I divide the pill into two halves, 5 mg and 5 mg, then I take 5 mg without liquid and 5 mg, I put it in a 50 ml syringe and then shake it completely until it dissolves.  The medicine, then I pour 10 ml and there are 40 ml left. I take it, and so on.. Is my method suitable?

Yes, this looks good, Mutfael. 5 mg in 50 mL liquid gives you a ratio of 1:10 and each mL contains 0.1 mg of Cipralex. By taking 40 mL, you are taking 4 mg, along with the 5 mg in tablet.

@MutfaelWhat day in August 2021 did you reduce down to 9 mg? You may want to do a slight updose, perhaps to 9.5 mg and see if you feel better.

Hello .. I do not depend on decreasing the dose on stability, so every month exactly 30 days I decrease 1 mg. As for the last dose, the decrease was only 9 mg on the date of August 9.. I suffer from anxiety, depression and anhedonia, but in an unstable way .. in one day the mood rises  Then it decreases. What bothers me the most is the early morning. I feel depressed and distressed, in contrast to the night or the end of the night. I feel that the depression is starting to fade.

Since 3 days, 1 to 2 hours before the scheduled dose, I have been experiencing itching all over my body and tingling like pins. Are these Cipralex symptoms?

Today and yesterday the depression intensified and I still feel dizzy at times with a constant migraine now for the second day in a row with a feeling of lack of focus (the strange thing is that the lack of focus comes suddenly and may last for an hour or less and then decrease and increase)!  I also had an increased sense of the imbalance of the moment or the dissipation of reality

The situation was stable the previous period, but a week and a half ago it began to deteriorate, as fear, depression, lethargy, and unwillingness to do anything began with pain in the muscles of the legs and separate parts of the body. Is this considered a wave?
