    Why do you gotta come off them? That's a large mg.. But lowering it that low so quick will cause withdrawal symptoms.

    Wow 150mg is the most I've ever heard of, I've know people to take 5 mg 3 x a day so that sounds like a hell of a lot!! Reducing by that much every 2 weeks will cause more harm than good, the longer the better I would advise, maybe reduce 10mg for 4-8 weeks and see how that goes or even reducing 5 mg at a time?? What r u prescribed them for if u don't mind me asking x

    Hi, I'd suggest you try reducing as your GP suggests, your on a huge dose so reducing by 10mg every two weeks may well be okay, if you experience withdrawal symptoms stop the reduction or slow it down and go back yo your GP.

    You can only give it a go, perhaps as your dose reduces you might find reducing the amount to 5mg, then 2mg is suggested.

    Are you prescribed that dose or do you buy them ? Because from my understanding 30mg is the high text dose any doctor should prescribe
