... 5mg each day now, could I decrease it to 2.5mg/day? I'm also taking 7.5ml Epilim. They are for my bipolar disorder. I do not have mood swing since 2009 or earlier and I'm very stable ever since.
Hi, msbd! You're likely stable because the mediation you're taking is working. If you stop you could experience severe rebound symptoms.
The only way to stop a psychotropic medication is under the supervision of a licensed professional with a decreasing dose schedule.
Best wishes and good luck, Wildcat
