Withdrawing from pitzotifen- anyone have any experience?

Hi everyone!

My names is Becky and I’ve had migraine associated vertigo for the last 5 years. With the help of Botox I’m now decreasing pitzotifen and I’m down to one tablet. With the help of my doctor I’ve been cutting my dose by 1/4 every two weeks. However, she is very happy for me to do it as fast as I would like with the dosage I would like.

As it seems to be going ok but Is really dragging then I wondered if anyone else has done this and what dosage did I you cut and over how long ? It makes me so extremely tired and has made me gain 3 dress sizes :( and so I want to be off it as soon as possible.

Thanks for your help. Becky
