    Hi Glenda, you go off of it very slowly...how many mg do you take?

      Hi, ok..so ask your doctor if you can slowly taper off by reducing your dosage. For example, instead of 15/mg, break one in half and take 10.5 mg for a month, and if you don't feel too bad, drop it to 7 mg the second month, and then 3.5 mg the third month. Then 3.5 mg every second day for a couple of weeks, then every third day, then every fourth day etc, then if you can cut them into smaller pieces, take 1 mg every 3 days and so on, very slowly.

      Hope that helps.
