Reduce by 10% per month to start
The 10% rule holds for Seroquel, just like other psychiatric drugs: Reduce by 10% per month, calculated on the last dosage. (The amount of the reduction gets progressively smaller.)
Please read the topic CM. Regardless of how the drug 'works' at 25 mg, it still needs to be carefully tapered to avoid withdrawal symptoms from arising.
Ok, Yeah i had, sorry i was just curious if it applied to such a low dose when the drug isnt really considered an "anti psychotic".
I dont know if this is factual or not but my doc had told me that the antihistaminic properties of seroquel isnt of much difference above 12.5mg and beyond. Essentially she was saying that at 12.5mg the drug influences up to 80% of those receptors, and above that its just smaller increments. So i would assume for those using seroquel for sleep, tapering the last 12.5mg may prove the most difficult.
Also, this may be a stupid question but are there interdose issues with seroquel? im taking it every 24 hours and i know the half life is something like 6 hours. I hope its not the case, unlike benzos.
