Hi has anyone decreased their dosage from 10mg to 5mg after 3months?
I went from 20 mgs to 10mgs after two years. It was fine for me. But always let your doctor know.
I also went from 20mg to 10mg but I spoke to my doctor first. Then from 10mg to 5mg. It's safe to do but as usual always asks your doctor first. I didn't have any side effects so all was good.
Thankyou for your responses so far. I am very anti medicine and feel like im in a 'haze' hence why i think its time to reduce.
The only one authorized to make dosage changes is the Dr who prescribes this for you, a 50% cut is huge, consult with the Dr, not only will you avoid the possible withdrawals from such a cut, you will preserve your relationship with the Dr.
