My observations about the withdrawl process

Posted by esokev on April 12, 2007, at 4:49:30

I've been doing a lot of reading on and off the boards... and I've come to the conclusion that too many people are suffering needlessly when tapering off benzos, antidepressants... whatever. The research I've found has said that when discontinuing these meds, or even switching that for matter... slow is best. Most people don't realize that while it may be on the slightly more pricey side... liquid and compounding tapers are available. A compounding pharmacy can MAKE your medication in ANY dose you need. Want to go down in only 5% increments... No big deal. Calculate it and talk to your pdoc... The pharmacy will custom make the med for you.

The body needs time to readjust everything when you make changes. My fear of taking meds like benzos has decreased drastically after reading how several people were able to go off them with relatively little discomfort, because of compounding pharmacies, and other liquid taper techniques.

If you have to get off or change take your time and do it slowly (unless the situation is dire and needs immediate attention...) You will be SOOOO glad you did.
