trileptal withdrawal

Posted by nixnay on January 3, 2009, at 17:16:00

I am wondering if anyone has been successful in tapering off of trileptal. what was your rate of taper and what other meds were you on while tapering.....also if you have ever tapered off of or c/t'd benzodiazapines....I feel quite compromised since my c/t off of ativan...
thanks,
nixnay

First welcome to babble. You're currently weaning off ativan or just stopped it. Trileptal what dose and what for? Took low dose of it in past as booster for ad. Phillipa

actually i am on 2100 mgs of trileptal....it helped me when i c/t'd off ativan 2 1/2 years ago after a failed benzo w/d.....i was also put on 2400 mgs of neurontin also for the same reason...i have tapered the neurontin already....and had a hard time with just a 300 mg cut of trileptal,,,i updosed 150 mgs and that didn't help so have gone all the way back up....maybe a 150 mg cut would have been ok, i dont know cuz i started with that 300 mg cut,,,still haven't stabilized after about 4-5 days....it may take a couple weeks...sigh....
