withdrawal from trepiline
5 Replies RSS
I am trying to withdraw from trepiline by taking half a tablet (10mg)per day instead of one tablet. I am getting palpitations could this be from the trepaline. ## Hi, Margo!

And yes, it could be from a too rapid dose reduction of the Trepiline, this can happen with antidepressants and that's why the dosage is usually very slowly reduced to taper off of them, rather than just stopping suddenly. If you were on a 20mg dosage, then the first step for tapering would most likely have been going to 15mgs. Learn more Trepiline details here. Have you consulted your doctor? You need to do as soon as possible, because there is also a chance that the palpitations could be due to something else, so you need to have them checked...

Small round Green Sleeping Pill

I am looking for a small green sleeping pill that was perscribed by a doctor. i have never come across a green sleeping pill in the years ive been takeing them ## Well, the color doesn't actually mean anything, but that isn't much information to go on to try and help you identify them. How long ago were they prescribed? Where were they prescribed? In the U.S., or somewhere else? ## Amitriptyline could be it, granted it's probably not the only small green sleeping pill out there
