Doctors who understand withdrawal


Recommended Posts

Can anyone provide names of doctors who understand or at least believe in extended withdrawal? 


I understand that there isn’t much doctors can do, but I would feel more reassured if I had a medical professional to at least check in with during this process, someone to help me decide if I should reinstate the drug or if things got worse. 

Dose: 10mg Lexapro (4.5 years, including taper); Taper: Oct 25, 2020: dropped down to 9mg

Nov 22, 2020: 8mg

Dec 22, 2020: 7mg

Jan 4, 2021: 6mg

Jan 17, 2021: 5mg

Feb 14, 2021: 3.65mg (approximately -- was cutting a 10mg pill)

March 14, 2021: 2.5 mg (approx.)

April 10, 2021: 1.25 mg (approx.)

May 10, 2021: 0mg

Taper was easy; weepiness and depression during withdrawal; 6 weeks out from withdrawal, intense restlessness and intolerable tightness in body
