Well, they have made their position very clear. He comes off the Lorazepam, except for PRN use. No compromise, nothing. They say he is addicted and has to come off. Now. We think that he should come off more slowly, but no. They say the dosage has been reduced and that ‘we’ (not us) just have to bite the bullet. Any concerns we had, were countered by the threat of an anti-psychotic and possible hospitalisation (sectioning!!) So we will see what next week brings.

Yes, one should come off prescription drugs slowly in a managed controlled way.
I am sure a million of psychiatric medics would agree – it is standard advice.
Please follow your wise instinct.
Thanks for your comment. i’m sure it will all turn out right in the end. Just a bit worrying at the moment. 😦
