It has a short half life so it won't hang around in your system more then a day. You don't have to wean off of it, it doesn't cause dependance.

What is the life span? I have been on 60mg for over a year.

You mean half life? Its only like 8 hr. Total time in your body is 5 times that. It doesn't matter how long you are on it, it doesn't cause dependence. There is no reason you can't just stop it.
