Don't go cold turkey it's horrible and you often lose the plot and end up on a higher dose! Get the liquid and cut down by 25% of the dose every 3 weeks until you are off it completely. Doctors advice is often rubbish, i asked a prescribing advisor who understands the chemical action of the drug.

I also would not go cold turkey. Go off this med very slowly and always by your GP's advice. Good luck.

Take care,
