Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello ! Thank you for your question, I’m Dr. Vikas (M.D Psychiatry) and I’ll try to help you today.
While reducing the dose from 4 mg per day to 3 mg per day, a better option would be to take 1 mg three times a day instead of cutting the pill and taking them 4 times a day.
are you online right now/
yes the next week is 2 per day
3rd wk 1 pill per day then 0.5 for 5 days then 0o.25 for 5 dasys
is this correct
It appears to be a good strategy. In any case, if a patient while tapering down Ativan start experiencing withdrawal symptoms like dizziness, nausea, sweating, insomnia, tremor etc to name a few, a simple strategy to control these symptoms is to restart the last tolerable dose and then then restarting tapering process more slowly.
I hope, you got my point.
You are most welcome. Do you have any other question to ask?
n ot at the present time will start next sunday if I tsake 3 pills do I space them evenly?
yes, it should help.
any other question you would like to ask :)
