Had to reinstate on Lexotan 3mg per day. how to taper? Help


Recommended Posts

Had to re instate on Lexotan 3mg per day.

After beeing floxed by levaquin i had gone several months with panic attacks and massive anxiety and eventually had to take a couple doses of lexotan .75mg to help. which turned into a couple 1.5mg doses over a period of 3 weeks on and off. Now i cant stop as things got really bad. Need to reinstate and doctor is suggesting 3mg a day.

Should i split the doses to 1.5mg morning and 1.5mg night. i cant switch to valium because valium give me hives really bad and i react badly to it. so i will have to titrate taper with lexotan. is this possible?


Please help im really concerned

Seems like i am stabilizing on .75mg Lexotan in the morning and 1.5mg at night.

Will hold this for a while and see how things goes.

Will be doing home water titration as that is probably easiest and smoothest taper

Thought i was stable but i feeling like horrible on .75mg in the morning and 1.5mg in the night.

I would like some advice on how to stabilise. Problem is i am allergic to valium and klonopin I break out in hives really bad so i have no choice but to stick with lexotan.


Should i split up my doses in to 3 per day?

should i have all doses equal? or could morning dose be small and night dose be big?
