In brief: Taper over time
It can be difficult.
You will probably need to taper over the course of a few weeks. If you were using more than once per day, take it one time less for 5 days, then decrease again by one dose per day for 5 more days and so on until you are off. In the meantime, you can use artificial tears to moisturize. Sometimes i put patients on a mild steroid drop to help them along the way!
