Gradually: You may taper off the dose by one or two percent every other day with the guidance of your physician. Quitting "cold turkey, " or suddenly is dangerous, but it is done! please consult a physician while making changes in your medications. Honesty with yourself is the first step, but learning from others' experiences may help guide you. Support groups may help in this.
