I am currently taking 40mg once a day. I have been taking this drug for 10 years. Or may I just take a pill every other day?
Hi, you will need to taper off the medication. If you just stop your serotonin levels will plummet and you will could become very unwell. The best way to go is to get a tapering guide from your doctor. He/she may want to drop you down by 10mg blocks of time, or maybe straight down to 20mg. I tapered from 60mg, and did it in 20mg blocks of time until down to 20mg. I later had to increase to 40mg again, so if you find yourself feeling depressed again when you stop, there is no shame in restarting the medication
