I did it. Don't do it the way I did!!! I went off too quickly and in retrospect, had some clear temporal lobe problems for a couple of months because of it.

I went back on two of the three drugs I was taking before I went off them all. I dropped the Luvox, and kept the Depakote (at a lower dose) and the Klonopin (at the same dose). But it hadn't been all that long since I had quit the roller coaster ride of multiple meds trials and a pdoc who upped the Luvox dose to maximum and wanted to up it again. I felt like I needed to find out who I was without the meds. And I'm glad I did.

Just be careful, have someone help you monitor yourself, and go slowly.
