    I am tapering off 50mg. I have dealt with a low grade headache as well as anxiety and insomnia. The drug is powerful. So I would definitely taper off under the supervision of a doctor. The trick is that tapering is very individual. You have to find your own tapering pace, that you can tolerate without too much pain.
