Starting Your Pre Taper
If you are wondering how you will feel once you are off the
medication or during the withdrawal portion of the program,
you are not alone and that is a normal question. Most people
begin to feel a major improvement once they start the
pre-taper and the rest feel a positive change once the
medication begins to be reduced.
I am assuming you were prescribed this class of medication
for Attention Deficit Disorder or Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder. The pre-taper and the supplements
used in this program will not only help eliminate
withdrawal, but will probably give your body some basic
nutrients it was lacking before the diagnosis and are
probably one of the root causes of the symptoms you
What to do Next:
Consult with your prescribing physician and/or
pharmacist and layout your drug taper schedule.
Plan out the second and third reduction of the
as well at this point to ensure you are ready with the
correct dosages of the drug.
Once you have read all of the pre-taper section proceed to
Chapter 17, “How to Taper ADD, ADHD Medication and
Stimulants” and fully read it as well.
For the next 7-days you will be doing your pre-taper. You do
not reduce your medication during the pre-taper.
Goal of Pre-Taper
drastic reduction or elimination of all major side effects.
Supplements You Will Take:
Neuro Endure Mini
ADHD medication is different from other psychoactive
medications during withdrawal. You might alternate from
being anxious and having insomnia one week and then fatigued
and dull for the next few weeks and then back again to
anxious and not able to sleep.
The JNK supplement might handle both ends of the spectrum
but it may not be able to completely eliminate the anxiety,
insomnia, fatigue and a dull feeling.
We recommend you have on hand the Body Calm Daytime Relief
if you are prone to have anxiety in the daytime and Body
Calm Supreme, with or without melatonin if insomnia is an
issue for you currently.
Body Calm Daytime Relief
Body Calm Supreme With Melatonin
Body Calm Supreme Melatonin Free
– Take 1 capsule of the JNK in the mid-morning. Take with or
Neuro Endure Mini –
Take 1 tablet in the morning. Take a total of 3 tablets a
day 5 hours apart.
Body Calm Daytime Relief
– Taking 1 capsule every 4 hours will usually help keep you
chilled out during the daytime. You can increase to 2
capsules if desired or take every 2 hours if needed.
Body Calm Supreme (With Melatonin or Melatonin Free)
– Start with the 1 capsule 15-minutes before bedtime and
give this amount 3 days. If your sleep is not what you
desire increase to as much as 2 capsules. You might try
taking 1 hour before bedtime as well.
Refer to Chapter 3, “Nutritionals Used on The Road Back
Program” for additional information.
Make sure to keep your daily Journal and Daily Graphs. The
pre-taper is really this simple. Do the pre-taper for 7 full
days and then proceed to tapering off the medication.
