I weaned myself down with my Doctor's help. It was a slow process for me of going down by only 5 mg a week but then I am drug sensitive. My Doctor thought I should be able to go down by 10mg a week but it wasn't that easy for me. Near the end you start skipping days as it has a long half life which made it easier. If you get any withdrawal symptoms then just stop until everything settles down.
