    Reminder that there are not any medical professionals on discussion forums. (Please see last gray signage area on right of page)

    re tapering and to stop a long time "strong" medication, would require the guidance and supervision of your  prescribing doctor.
    This is for your safety, and also for doctor to be aware of your compliance in taking med and wish to stop.
    Doctor really needs to be kept in the loop of your thoughts and decisions re his doctor's orders.

    Good luck!
