How long does it take to wean off Nexito plus?
I have addiction issues, cigarettes for twenty four years, then switched to nicotex to get off cigarettes and got addicted to nicotex : ) stupid , I know. Maybe it's genetic ,or maybe it's a huge amount of life stressors.
Then I was also addicted to spasmindon >10 a day,weaned off one at a time, now completely since two years. Was prescribed nexito plus and I am on the wagon again..>10 a day.
I was hospitalised in January , was clean for a month, then I started popping pills again. I know it's to douse emotional pain and having done intensive work on that , am now ready to wean off nexito plus. So every day or two I plan to reduce one tablet? So what are the withdrawal symptoms and how long will they last.i already suffer from body ache and have mild fever since yesterday. So what and how now ? Dr. And I do hope my privacy will be respected and confidentiality maintained. Thank you
Gradual withdrawal is required
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Nexito plus has escitalopram and clonazepam. YOu have mostly got addicted to the clonazepam content of nexito plus. Taking esciatalopram is such huge quantity can be detrimental to the heart and may cause serotonine syndrome. It would be wise to come off it and the process of doing so by reducing it by one tablet a day is fine. Mostly it will not lead to any complication except for some anxiety and sleep disturbances. But still it would be advisable to get it done under the medical supervision by getting admitted under a psychiatrist.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

What is the likelihood of strong withdrawal and how many days or day do I keep between letting one go , I mean should I do 1 less every day or every two or three days, I don't think I want to wait a week to reduce intake by 1
Reduce one tab per day
Reducing 1 tablet per day should be good enough. It should not lead to any serious withdrawal. Do keep your doctor informed about your plan of drug withdrawal.
