... helped me much and I wish I was never put on it). 4 months ago I started decreasing the med (with doctor support) 0.125mg per week. so I dropped to 1.375mg for a week then 1.25mg for a week. I did that all the way down to 0.25mg, which is where I am now. I had practically no issues decreasing at all. no withdrawal. I'm in my head a little bit now at stopping it. should I decrease to 0.125 mg or can I just stop and jump off at 0.25 mg? I haven't had any issues coming down weekly from 1.5 mg... would I likely have any discomfort or withdrawal decreasing or stopping now? anyone been through this? I just want off this drug!
