Medical Supervision During the Withdrawal

MEDICAL SUPERVISION and monitoring of withdrawal effects by a doctor who is interested in helping you is important to make your drug withdrawal a success.

 

1. You should get a physical examination and have your doctor review the ingredients to establish that there will be no interactions between the supplements and the medication that you are taking. Your doctor is welcome to contact us if he or she needs more information.

 

2. If you take multiple drugs, work out with your doctor a sequence of withdrawal.

 

3. Write a tapering schedule for the first medication.

 

4. Keep a journal of your dosages and what you experience as you taper from the drugs.

 

5. You should meet with your doctor regularly to go over your progress, ideally each time you are going to reduce the medication.
