Okay. Fair enough.

> Going back on 45mg on monday. I dont have a scale here at my mother`s. The people from the withdrawal website recommended 5% steps instead of 10%. But they dont know that i am worse now that i have gone back from 45mg to 50mg.

I don't believe that one size fits all with respect to taper schedules. I don't think that it is necessary to reduce the dosage of trazodone by only 10% every 4 weeks. Better safe than sorry, I guess.

Everyone is different regarding how fast they can taper any given drug.

My experience with trazodone was that I was able to discontinue 300 mg/day within two weeks. I was able to stop 75 mg/day within a few days. That's just me, of course.
