How to Taper Off Multiple Medications

What to Do If You Are Taking Multiple Drugs

With our breakthroughs this past year, people are now able to taper off more than one medication at a time. The reformulated JNK Formula and Neuro Day have made this possible and this new breakthrough cuts the time it takes a person to be medication free dramatically.

There are still some things that need to be watched when reducing more than one medication at a time. The medications that can be reduced at the same time are: ADD, ADHD, stimulants, antidepressants and antipsychotics can be reduced at the same time.

Any combination of these medications can be reduced simultaneously. Alternate their reductions every 14-days.An example of this would be: Reduce the antidepressant 7 days later reduce the antipsychotic 7 days later reduce the antidepressant again 7 days later reduce the antipsychotic again.

This still gives 14-days before the dosage of a specific medication is reduced and if withdrawal side effects begin, it makes it easier to tell which drug reduction is causing the problem.

If you are also taking a benzodiazepine, anti-anxiety drug or sleep medication, taper these drugs first, before you reduce any other class of drug.

The antidepressants, antipsychotics, ADD, ADHD, stimulants increase the clearance time of the benzodiazepines by as much as 50% and if you reduce these other drugs first you will go in withdrawal with the benzodiazepine, even though the benzodiazepine dosage was not reduced.

You can read Chapter 23, The Science, for more information on this.
