I've been on 1.5 mg--5mg three times a day for ten months. I want to get off of it. I had resisted going on it for a long time, but finally gave into my doc. That was a mistake! My Doc has suggested cutting by ,25 mg every two weeks. Is that a safe taper? I started tapering 4 days ago and believe I'm having mild withdrawal symptoms. Is that considered a high dose? Will withdrawal symptoms get worse or better?
