You might. Try cutting the dose, if you've cut too much you'll know, so bump it back up a bit. What dose pills do you have because you can't really cut it? You might need your dr to write for a smaller dose pill. Don't go too fast either. Do it slow and easy, there is no rush.
I would ask your doctor for a tapering plan, so you can discontinue safely without too many/any withdrawal symptoms. You can get doses in 100mg & 50mg, so it will probably be advised to reduce by taking lower strength tablets. Fyi, if you are taking XR (extended release) tablets, do NOT cut them, you could become very ill. Good luck with your reduction
