Reducing medicine

Is it possible to come off medication by reducing slowly even if anti psychotic and been on them for 15 years on low dose

I reckon you should have a chat to the prescriber about it 'cos I think it depends on why your reducing your meds, especially anti-psychotics... I went straight from finishing the Zyprexa one night straight on to the Olanzapine the next night but it was my GP who told me it was happening and how to do it, so maybe have a chatette to your GP to see what they say?
