Withdrawal: Safest way is gradual tapering. Your doctor can come up with detailed schedule for each medication to help you gradually discontinue & avoid withdrawal, depending on the dosage of each medication.

See details: Celebrex (celecoxib) can be stopped immediately. If the dose of gabapentin is not high it can also be stopped all at once. The others can be tapered over 2 or 3 months.
