Thanks for approaching this important but difficult topic. From what I know, when service users get involved with a doctor or psychiatrist over this issue, what they often get is that when they reduce meds and complain of withdrawal symptoms, it is a sign of relapse. The professional will then up the dose instead of helping. With that kind of help, I do not think it good to approach professionals for guidance. Your problem of lack of RCT does not address the real problem. It’s not an academic one, to my way of thinking. And alerting the scientific community about this by way of the article you reviewed will most likely do little good. Why would a greed-infested system want to change if it had to give up power and profit? If some changes could be made in the medical community, I’d suggest instead of knowledge of tapering, that they be legally required to provide proper informed consent to eliminate the problem at its source. Unfortunately, I think this might involve a lengthy round of class action suits. As for the tapering strips, I’ve not heard good reports on them, but will read the article you’ve reviewed to see what the authors have to say.
