In brief: Slow Taper
Taking a patient off Loxapine is generally done as a slow taper over a few weeks.
This taper is dependent upon the length of time taking this medication as well as the dose. One should be very observant for reoccurrence of any of the symptoms that were being treated. If hospitalized medications can often be tapered faster than in an outpatient setting.
