tapering from 20mg to 10mg loxetine safely

Posted , 2 users are following.


About to start tapering off 20mg to 10mg after 9 weeks, just wanted to hear how you have done this without to many side effects if at all? my gp suggested:

week 1

20mg/10mg every other day

week 2


week 3

10mg every other day

week 4


I keep reading that jumping from 20mg to 10mg people still have horrible side effects, has anybody achieved better results? would maybe having prescription for tablets and maybe taking 20mg to 15mg be better
