Coming off Clozapine (Clozaril)

Postby nicholascamp » Dec 28, 2016 12:10 pm

What is the best approach in tapering off Clozapine? Something like (day yes day no):

02/jan: -12,5mg => 437,5mg
03/jan: ------
04/jan: -12,5mg => 425mg
05/jan: ------
06/jan: -12,5mg => 412,5mg
07/jan: ------
08/jan: -12,5mg => 400mg
09/jan: ------
10/jan: -25mg => 375mg
11/jan: ------
12/jan: -25mg => 350mg
13/jan: ------
14/jan: -25mg => 325mg
15/jan: ------
16/jan: -25mg => 300mg

until 0.

Or 10% dosage reduction each week?

Is it secure? have a plan to host for 8 weeks average, into coming off psych drugs. I food myself very good, I am frugivorous, don't take coffee, don't drink or smoke.

Is OK this reduction? What about permanent rebound, permanent psychosis? I already took Geodon Ziprazidone and withdrawal in 2 or 3 weeks, without collateral effects, only insomnia. Is Ziprazidone as Clozapine? Please, help me. Thank you.
