If you listed the dose correctly at 10 mg, you are taking virtually a homeopathic dose, that is a very minimal amount. At this level, no need to taper, just stop. Talk with you doctor about this, but the noted dose is far too small to help any of your problems.

There will be no withdrawal from this dose. The dose so low that there isn't even a smaller tablet to lower it down to. You needn't worry about that. Best wishes.
