In brief: Slow over 6-8 weeks

Slow tapering of oral formulation over 6–8 weeks, especially when simultaneously beginning a new replacement antipsychotic.
Rapid oral discontinuation may lead to rebound psychosis and worsening of symptoms. If antiparkinson agents are being used, they should be continued for a few weeks after Loxapine is discontinued. [see stahl].
