Best to taper: You are on relatively low dosage. However, to reduce untoward side effects reduce by 25mg every 2nd day. I am not a psychiatrist so its best if you consult one. You say " my psych. Told me to just stop it immediately." psychiatrist or psychologist said this? I am uncertain. May need second opinion. Take care.
