I shouldn't even publish this. Vulnerable people, who don't have as much practice reading their own moods might try it, not under a doctor's supervision, and hell, even I shouldn't, I have been on it for years, cutting back could make me sick...but we will see. I cut back in the past, and I remember my mood took a turn of fear of impending doom. This was mild, but I was pleased to be aware that it was because of the tapering, not because there was ACTUAL doom around the corner, and that I am psychic (That's what it feels like.) Once I realized that I went back to my normal dose.
This is very unscientific, but I take a pill and a half. The normal maximum dose is one pill. My new plan is to take 1 1/3 for a week, then taper to 1 1/4 for a month or so. If it goes well, maybe I would go down a bit more, but I would cut down to only as little as one pill...beyond that I would do it under a doc's supervision. For all I know I might feel too bad after 2 days and go back to the original dose.
