Trying again from today to taper off at least one of my anxiety drugs. Starting with Trinicalm Plus (Trifluoperazine and some other stuff) again. I skipped the evening dose today. That’s the minimum I can do — a quarter pill.
I need to stick with this for two weeks now and then try to stop the morning dose too. Previously too I’ve successfully managed to reduce to 50 percent, but completely getting off of the drug has proved tough. I managed it for a week last time and then gave in and went back on it.
I feel perhaps I tried to reduce too quickly last time because I didn’t wait the full two weeks. I was encouraged by the success of the first week and got off the morning dose also after just five days. This time I’ll force myself to take the time.
Wish me luck.
