How Long Does It Take To Withdrawl From Stelazine

I was misdiagnosed for 20 years. I've been on antipsychotics for 20 years. I've been on Atypical for maybe 8 years. I have ptsd only. I have been on Stelazine for maybe 3 years. I was on 15mg. When I first started coming off of it I would cut a 5mg pill in 1/4. After 3 months I was down 10mg..then It's been cut down to 5mg. Going from 1/2 5mg every 3 months..so now I'm at 5mg. I've had anxiety for 3 months now after going to 5mg. I'm also on 400mg of Lamictal, 4mg of Xanax, 200mg of Trazodone. I wake up with anxiety every morning to the point that I feel my heart is going to beat out of my chest most days. I take my night meds at 2am because I wake up at 5:30 AM if I go to bed at a normal time say 11 or 12. I wake up at 7:30-8:30 am. The first thing I take is Xanax in the morning. So meds at 2am for night meds at 8ish am for am meds then xanax at 8am, 1pm, 6pm, and 2am. Keep in mind my ptsd was triggered the worst it's ever been in my life a month ago. But I've been anxious for so long I don't know if it was the same or worst afterwards..I'm only anxious when I wake up . No other part of the day unless the xanax starts wearing off. But, nothing like when I wake up. So meds in am are as follows: 200mg of Lamictal, 1mg Xanax, 25mg hcz, 75 Mcg of Synthroid, at 8am. 1mg xanax at 1pm, 1mg xanax at 5-6 pm ..1mg of Xanax, 200mg of Lamictal, 200mg Trazodone, .5 MG of Cogentin, 5mg stelazine at 2am. I don't understand why I'm so anxious and only in the morning when I wake up. How long does it take to get off Stelazine? Or what else could it be? I don't have blood sugar issues.

Honestly, according to FDA reports, it could be due to lowering the Stelazine, or it could also be a side effect of one of your other medications, or a combination of them. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes.

Have you discussed the issue with your medical provider?

Are you experiencing any unusual dreams, before waking up?
