Can i ask why you want to quit? You are on a low dose, & as it is being used for sleep only, you could simply stop taking it. Or for a better chance of not experiencing withdrawal symptoms, you could discontinue by reducing to 0.25mg for a week & then take the medication every other day for a week before quitting. You should inform your doctor about what you are planning to do
Your lucky I can't fall asleep on 1 mg.
