Oh, good...so many people try to do this without physician input.
Side effects of withdrawal, which is basically what she's going through, will be difficult, but worth it.
At this point, she may need to be monitored more as you would a younger child, and redirecting her when she starts to have an episode. Hang in there. You'll get through this! How long has it been so far?

Thanks for your support Shawnn! It has been since Jan '14 that we have started the process, now she is off of all meds except something for anxiety...we just started this week with that...even trying no Concerta, thinking perhaps that was disagreeing with her...
You are right, it's like having a small child again, the irony is that none of ours were "mouth kids" ! they didn't put anything in their mouths, particularly her...so this is very unusual behavior for us...praying for patience and answers.
thanks ever so much for your input.
