Hi there ...
Drugs like Alprazolam , Fentanyl patch , Gbapentin shouldn't be stopped abruptly , as these are habit forming drugs .
It would be ideal for you to get off these drugs one by one , as you are off Gabapentin for last 3 days and you were on reasonable dose 600 mg , so please donot stop it abruptly reduce half the dose in couple of weeks then get rid of it in next 2 weeks then , Gradually withdraw from Alprazaolam followed by Fentanyl patch.
As most of these drugs can have withdrawal symptoms , so it would be ideal to gradually get rid of all these .
Regards ***** ***** luck .
Please leave positive feedback for me .
No as you are off Gabapentin so just start from half the dose mean 300 mg for 2 weeks then 150 mg for next 2 weeks then 50 mg and then complete OFF .
Good luck .
It would be ideal for you to reduce Fentanyl patch first if you want to get rid of it and later alprazolam , as you mentioned you are on 25 mg Fentanyl patch , so you should get it on alternative days first for first two weeks , then one on every third day for next 2 weeks then every 5th day and then weekly and see response .
Positive feedback will be appreciated .
