Taper & add minerals: Avoiding withdrawal generally occurs by tapering a dose down gradually while starting a lower dose of the Invega. If you want to share your dose , I can help you taper, but I think you can go down by 25% every couple days. If you did that, consider melatonin and magnesium glycinate in addition to a good multiple vitamin and mineral supplement. You can also try Float Therapy!
