In brief: Varies by Medication

The depends very much on the medication involved, and it can also be influcenced by other factors.
Some medicines can be stopped pretty quickly, while others should be tapered over several weeks. It is important to develop a plan with your physician if you are considering a taper of medication.

This should be a joint decision with your prescribing doctor, depending on the type of medication, what it is for, & how long u have been on it.
