I'm not 100% positive on your question because of all the typos, but if you're asking would it be better to ignore the Dr's directions to stop gradually and just stop cold I would say 2 things;
1. Never do anything other than what the prescribing Dr directs you to do.
2. Do not, I repeat, do not ignore his/her instructions to be gradual. You think you're suffering now? Stopping this (what I think is a horrible med) abruptly is a guaranteed trip down misery road.
I stinks I know because you want to end the horrible side-effects but trust me you will regret stopping abruptly. Hope this helps.
