I don't remember the schedule when I tapered off, but it was relatively quick because Lamictal was making things worse instead of better. Ideally you want to taper off at the same rate that you tapered up, usually in 50mg increments every week or two weeks.

I went off it cold turkey at 200. Granted, I had a tube down my throat, but I survived. However--the risk of some sort of seizure disorder, nevermind other complications, would make me nervous about anything other than the reverse schedule of how I went up--if not even slower.

I'm curious as to why you ask, and also what you mean by "ideal"--considering YMMV, I doubt there is a particular ":ideal".

Is your doctor saying something that you think is completely unreasonable?

Pdoc is saying 25mg every month, which is much more slowly than I went on. She's really conservative and I guess this isn't going to be any different.
