I did it very slowly,decreasing by one tab
per WEEK until I got to 6 tabs
per day. By then,for me, I felt I could stop completely but I didn't because I had used this drug for over 25 yrs. So,I continued to taper until I got to 2 per day. I'll say here that this was all a very sad process because every day I knew that soon my "best friend" would be gone forever. The upside was that I didn't suffer physically but,of course,I wasn't really getting the effect that I so adored.
