half life meds and withdrawal

splitting the dose? Based on what evidence? what do you think of the link I've shared?

 

It's definitely good information and a good resource. However, this part isn't entirely correct:

 

Quote

 

A drug's half-life matters because:

 

  • a short half-life usually means more withdrawal problems
  • a long half-life usually means fewer withdrawal problems.

 

 

 

Some people have very difficult withdrawal symptoms even with the longer half-life drugs. It's not just about the half-life, but also how much your brain and body have adapted to the drug. The taper speed is important. Also, you can split the dose to reduce interdose withdrawal due to a short half-life. 

 

Switching to another drug in order to go on a drug with a longer half-life will mean going into withdrawal from your current drug. The new drug may or may not mask the withdrawal from the Amisulpride. So it's a risk. 

 

Also, a crossover is usually done gradually but much less gradually than with a regular taper, meaning you'll abruptly reduce the Amisulpride as you move onto the new drug. I'm not sure how to advise this.

 

Instead of going on another drug, it may be better to micro-taper the Amisulpride slowly enough that you adapt to the change in mechanism (going from a drug that reduces dopamine to the lower doses that facilitate dopamine release). AND also reduce your cigarette consumption in order to reduce the dopamine increase caused by nicotine. 

 

I would go very, very slowly, possibly 3% or less a month off the previous month's dose, especially when you get down to the 200 mg range and / or you start to feel in any way energized by the drug. You could also slowly move the drug to earlier in the day to prevent insomnia, if you do feel the drug is becoming stimulating (when moving a drug, please note we recommend only moving it an hour a day since gradual moves are less disruptive to your nervous system, so if you take it at 9 PM, take it at 8 PM the next day, 7 PM the following day, etc.).

Ok,

I know that my dopamine receptors has increased permanently due to long term of use with high doses.

That's what happens when the med block dopamine receptors, the brain is a very plastic organ and because of that block, the brain is creating more receptors. in other words- I'm much more sensitive to psychosis than when i was before taking amisulpride. Therefore I dont know if i could manage the low doses and the dopamine release. So its also very risky dont you think?

 

3% is very tiny dose, i wont finish this withdrawal. it will take six years or something similar

Dopamine supersensitivity psychosis is fairly well known in antipsychotic withdrawal. While it's an entirely different mechanism, careful tapering enables gradual adaptation to the new drug level. I would expect the same with amulsipride.

 

We can't predict the future of your taper, Josef. Going cautiously is probably your best course. As you decrease the dosage, you will have to listen carefully to your body to detect shifts that might signal a problem is coming, and stop reducing there. You are the best judge of your reactions.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.

I am willing to try my best, with cautious, slow taper, self monitoring and self control ect..

 

I just think to myself that it will be way over the top when the dopamine release will start to take effect on me.  withdrawal is sensitive issue as it is, also the shorter half life- as adviced, to split dosage to two so it cancels out the option to "play" with the hour I'm taking the med, if for example I'll have insomnia.

So there's serious stuff to consider.....

Why "over the top"? You've been increasing your dopamine all along the way by increasing the number of cigarettes you take. Reducing nicotine will likely help. 

 

Please don't spiral into catastrophic thinking. These threads can help:

 

Dealing With Emotional Spirals

 

"Change the channel" -- dealing with cognitive symptoms

 

Work on cigarette reduction, a clean diet, exercise, some mindfulness exercises or other non-drug coping strategies and set yourself up for success. 

 

We don't recommend a lot of supplements, as many members report their nervous systems are simply too fragile to handle them. However, magnesium and fish oil tend to be calming to the nervous system and many people report they do help. Please only add in one supplement at a time and at a small dose. For more, please see:

If the lower dose are more stimulating for you (and we don't know that for sure), than you may find you feel better as the drug wears off in the evening. If the drug wearing off is an improvement, than you won't need to split the dose. You'll have the wait to see if the interdose withdrawal is better or worse than any side effects (such as being stimulating). 

 

Since this is a drug that's not common in many countries, you may want to reach out to the folks at Soteria Israel to see if they have any resources or information regarding this drug or doctors in your area that are informed on withdrawal. This is an article about this group:

Thank you Shep for your supportive reply and relevant tips, as we say in hebrew "first reach the bridge, then decide what to do" :)

 

I was over concerned when i wrote my latest comment that I'll get caught in a future situation dealing with insomnia, restlessness, and agitation, which occurred in my last wd in 2018. I want to believe that it will be different this time with the tools you're giving me.

 

I started to reduce the nicotine, I'm eating healthy, taking vitamins, exercise 3 days a week and just finished a two month meditation course (next up- mindfulness course).

 

I called soteria house, they don't want to share any information or give any consultation unless I'm willing to pay them for their service.

 

On another subject, I don't know if my pill is ok to prepare it for a suspension, it's not the original solian, it's a generic med of amisulpride made in israel, it's called Pride 100 and the company name is UniPharm. 

What I need to check in order to find out if its suitable for oral suspension?

 

thanks for the links, will sure read them as soon as i get home.

I really believe it will be different. The symptoms you're describing - insomnia, restlessness, and agitation - are withdrawal symptoms from a rapid taper. That doesn't sound like dopamine supersensitivity issues, such as hallucinations and psychosis.

This is great, Josef. You're setting yourself up for the best outcome. 

 

If you're interested, there's some really great information available for free online for mindfulness. I found this one helpful because it's an 8-week program with tons of resources to read and videos to watch:

Thanks for letting us know. That's really unfortunate, but that seems to be the pattern with the alternative treatments - very limited supply and only for those who can pay.

Because this isn't a common drug seen here, we don't have a lot of information, so please reach out to the local pharmacist in your area to get specifics for a liquid taper. Let us know what you find out and it will add information to the site. There are agents such as propylene glycol that can be added to drugs to make them more soluable in water, and also, some drugs are soluble in a small amount of ethanol, such as Vodka, but it's best to find out as much as you can about your drug first. 

 

Or you may want to opt for a scale and dry taper. Here are more resources for using a scale and making a liquid:

Well.. since you've brought it up, here's the list of symptoms i had during the last withdrawal:

 

Mental symptoms:

- powerful delusional/intrusive thoughts

- paranoia

- anxiety

- panic attacks

- Acceleration in thoughts

- emotional overflow

- Connects physical motions to random thoughts)

 

Physical symptoms:

- painful heart palpitations

- intense Brain palpitations and brain tension

- insomnia that led to poor judgment

- restlessness

- Sweating in my sleep, my clothes were stained with white salt stains every morning

 

Doctors defined me as schizoeffective, based on a depression episode that happened in 2012 (which is not why i was hospitilized), and false thoughts, which i believe emerged due to daily anxiety. I had them before, but were mild.

 

Today i know exactly why all this happened, it was related to a case of violence at work, a relationship with a girl that has ended, and a re-injury from my period of service in the army- all in less than two weeks.

Thanks for providing more information. All of those sounds like valid reasons for someone to be distressed. We're really not about labels here and it sounds like you're already letting go of that "schizoaffective" label by naming the sources of your distress. That's a lot to go through in less than two weeks! That doesn't make you "mentally ill," just a thoughtful human being going through a lot. 

 

If you feel you've stabilized enough and are ready to start your taper, here is more information about doing so. 

 

I asked the other staff about Amisulpride and Brassmonkey provided information about solubility and Altostrata had some good advice about using Ora-Plus as a suspending vehicle for making your own liquid. 

 

As you can see from the Amisulpride datasheet, this drug is not soluble in water and only moderately soluble in ethanol. But if you use a suspending vehicle like Ora-Plus, you'll be able to make a liquid suspension by crushing up the tablet and adding the Ora-Plus. 

 

The most important thing is the rate of the taper, and due to your previous experience, a micro-taper of 5% or less will likely be the best path for you. Please note that it's 5% or less off of the amount of the previous month's dose (not the originally prescribed dose). 

 

You may want to go with the Brassmonkey Slide for your taper:

 

The Brassmonkey Slide Method of Micro-tapering

 

The Brassmonkey Slide has 4 weekly reductions followed by at least a two week hold. So if you wanted to do a 5% reduction, you would reduce 1.25% each week for 4 weeks and then hold at least two week. 

 

The fact that you were able to stabilize after having so many symptoms shows how resilient your nervous system is. Go slow and keep working on those non-drug coping strategies and you'll be okay. Distraction is another way of getting through symptoms. The art of distraction means when symptoms are strong, go for a walk in nature, listen to some favorite music, or play a video game. Whatever you need to do to distract the anxious mind until the wave passes.

Hey Shep, how are you?

I don't have Ora plus in my country.

In online purchase it costs 60$ USD for 473 mL (one bottle).

So If im making 1:1 ratio suspension, the bottle will last for 4.5 days. So unfortunately I don't have this amount of money.

Even let's say i do 0.5:1 ratio- it's still very expensive..

Any other suggestions?

Please go back up to 300 mg. Reducing by 50 mg is nearly a 17% reduction. Please see:

 

Why taper by 10% of my dosage?

 

You were able to stabilize by updosing after doing a rapid taper, but there's no guarantee that will continue to happen. The more you traumatize your nervous system with abrupt reductions, the more difficult the next taper may be. This is known as "kindling" the nervous system. It's trauma to the nervous system until your nervous system loses resiliency.

Check out the information in the scale thread:

 

Using a digital scale to measure doses

 

Here is a scale that many members have had great success with:

 

GEMINI-20 Portable Precision Digital Milligram Scale 20g x 0.001g (Silver), GEMINI-20

 

The Gemini-20 is also available on e-Bay and other online vendors, so you may be able to find a better price for one that's available in your country. 

 

Here is a video on how to use a scale:

I would updose back to the 300 mg and come up with a game plan for a slow taper before making any reductions. Set yourself up for success.

You'll crush the pill before weighing it. Some people use a mortar and pestle and others find that they can crush the pill with the back of a spoon or improvise in other ways if the cost of a mortar and pestle is a barrier. 

 

It's precise to use a scale. There are thousands of people on the various withdrawal forums who've used a scale to taper over the years that withdrawal forums have existed. You'll be fine with a scale.

Thanks Shep, really helpful guide

I currently read about windows and waves.

very serious and important topics!

 

I bought the Gemini-20 scale on amazon, it will arrive exactly on my birthday ;).

 

So, after I'm crushing and scaling my daily dose what i should do with the powder? Eat it? Mix it in water, then drink it?

 

I will crush 5 pills at a time, sum their weight and store them like the girl in the video did.

I just wonder if this procces will reduce or change some of the effectiveness of the med..?

Happy Birthday, Josef. A scale is a great gift to give yourself. 

 

Once you crush and weigh your daily dose, you can store the powder in a capsule. You can buy empty capsules online. As noted in the thread on using a scale:

No, it won't change the effectiveness of the drug. It's the same drug, you're just reducing the dose a bit.

Without knowing what was in the video, it would be impossible to say. Many people have a change in worldview after this experience, as we feel betrayed by medical doctors, people we've been conditioned to trust. And some people are dealing with the trauma of forced "treatment," which can have a long-lasting impact.  But we see people heal from these drugs all the time.

Is drinking with water mixture will not be as effective?

 

I'm read a lot of success threads lately, I stumbled on thread which one who's on several meds for many years, also used amisulpride for 4 years on a low dose (150mg), and after he switched to Olanzapine he managed to Withdrawal in 10 months! (Latrogenesis is his username if I remember correctly)

Very inspirational, but also very tempting to be thinking on switching too if things will get out of hand.

 

Still on 250mg, everything seems normal for now, still do exercise, eating healthy foods, I'm also considering to start taking magnesium,any recommendations which dose to start with magnesium?

My psychiatrist is willing to help me at all cost, but his advices are so bad sometimes..

I called Soteria again and they referred me to a psychiatrist who works for them, I asked my psychiatrist about him and it turns out they know each other, he said good things about him and that he is not enthusiastic about giving drugs to people so quickly. 

 

So I gave him a call and we've talked briefly on the phone, he said he's familiar with 10% reduction method, and that he had already helped people come off amisulpride and other drugs, he even mentioned Breggin and Whitaker as some point. His clinic is right next to where my parents live. Anyway It sounded too good to be true, until I heard the price... 300$ 😮, I thought it through for a couple of days and decided to make an appointment.

 

On another topic. It's been a week since my last (17%) reduction, I have a mild tension around my head for about 5-10 minutes but then it passes on, it happened twice and it's pretty marginal. Other than that I'm generally well.

 

Once the shipment of the Gemini scale arrives (between 12 of July and 02 of August.) I will make the next cut, 10% reduction from 250mg to 225mg.

I also bought on amazon 500 units of Gelatin capsules, size 00, and stainless steel Mortar and Pestle.

 

Have a lovely weekend you guys!
