Scott: Discontinuing Tegretol

Is the safest/fastest that I can come off is 200mgs every 5 days? Or can I go quicker?

I am re-instating from a point where i will not be in severe tolerance wd, and can have some resemblence of a life.

Seeing as there aren't going to be many docs around that will prescribe 60-80mgs valium (basically a sugar pill to me), and klonopin causes depression/irritability, ativan is a sugar pill, is my best bet xanax xr (I worry about tolerance and interdose wd? Given that i have to dose valium 3 times a day, im imagining that i'd have to take it 4 times a day.

As to the underlying depression might be lingering, the only beneficial med i found was provigil. I worry that it is a cns stimulant, and benzos a depressant, damaging my cns.

The best relief i ever found was an ssri+provigil. It might be worth looking into.

I had good results w/ celexa+provigil, but celexa causes dereliazation. Not a side effect i'm willing to deal with. Lexapro+provigil might be worth looking into. As lexapro is the only one that has helped depression and helps derealization. But bad for sleep, has induced some mania, mixed/moods before, and some dysphoria, which i think the provigil might help with.

Let me know what you think
