Talk with your doc: All antidepressants when stopped abruptly can lead to some withdrawal like symptoms, some much more so than others. There are many different taper schedules but this is something best reviewed with your prescribing doctor as he/she should also know that you plan on stopping a particular medication like this. Best of luck.
