Sounds good, but: Why not get a formal reduction plan from thje doctor who prescribed? In my thinking, it's part of their responsibility to you as their patient. You do seem to have a proper plan, but if you notice feelings you don't like - get help, don't try to address them by ups and downs on your own. It hope it goes well.
