Hope you're better: OK. It's best to work w/ a Dr on the taper. That said, if you absolutely can't - as slow as possible is safest. Some say a drop of 10%/mth is great. With liquid cipralex you can do that. Otherwise, breaking tablets is ok but not easy. Best w/ help - Dr - or druggist - or as slow as you can. Glad it was short. Hope it was sweet!
