Given your dosage and duration, i'd estimate symptoms for a few days, up to a week. But it could be longer. Better to taper off: take less each day...

But, taking it other than daily is not so usual, and at that dose might cause havoc, including STM loss, nausea and muscle twitching. Consult with your prescribing MD. Normal dose is 100 MG q. d., unless something else is going on...Do you have a therapist? ...Read more
