Coming off Clozapine (Clozaril)

Coming off Clozapine (Clozaril)

Postby nicholascamp » Dec 29, 2016 10:36 am

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? alttomeds.com 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.

Hi nicholascamp, I can't answer any of these questions for you. The forums are at a bit of a lull at the moment.I just wanted to say I hope you find the answer you're looking for.

:'( no one stopped Clozapine here? Can't believe no one can help. But thank you for your answer.

I'd check back occasionally just to see. There are sometimes new people who come by or people who haven't been in awhile, so maybe one of them can help, but I don't know everyone's history so I can't be sure. For me, it's been a good place just to talk more than anything. Maybe a little too much if you ask some people :)
