doc's approval?: I'm assuming your doctor told you to do this, so there should have been some weaning instructions? Don't do this on your own. There are various schedules - your doc knows you best. A typical schedule might be 50 mg a day for 7 days, 25 mg a day for 7 days, then stop. That's not fixed in stone.

This is a beta blocker BB which does not work well in PA because renin is low. Work with team and always taper a BB OR YOU CAN SUDDENLY get worse.
