It's been horribly agonizing. I was never on a high
dose (1.25 mg/day) but it was high
enough to not be able to quit cold turkey (tried 4 times). I worked with my pdoc and had my wife on board and tapered over 5 weeks and finally, when I was down to 1/4 of a 2.5 mg tablet twice a week, cut the strings. I'm currently on day 17 and this past weekend was simply hell. I can't describe it. On any day I can experience panic, anxiety, depression, feeling like a zombie all within a couple hours.
