See below: You should discuss your titration regimen w/ your dr and agree on a plan to gradually decrease the dose of your med. It would be better to take 1/2 tablet daily for about 1-2 weeks and then 1/4 tablet for another week if you need to do so to prevent withdrawal symptoms and then stop, if you are sensitive to withdrawal.
