    Hi Sandra , it can take a few weeks before you start to feel back  to normal.

    its best to do what your doing just taper Dow n slowly. I myself once took them 

    for eighteen months and I just cut down quickly for about a week and withdrawal

    wasnt very good, so I suggest you keep taking one until you feel ok then cut to 

    half then none or half every other day I think it just depends everyone is different

    But I do know if you take long term it takes longer to get off them

    hope this helps Ann
