Start decreasing ASAP. The shorter your on it the better you'll feel and the faster you'll feel it. Everyone is different. Some take a 2mg sub. and feel ok. some take 8mg and still can't get comfy. Try your best to grin and bare it. And keep in mind that SOME discomfort is normal and there truly is no way to alleviate all symptoms of withdrawl, only minimize it. Best wishes
All I have to say is short term my friend
I would start to taper. It seems you can taper faster in the first couple of months, after that it needs to be done slower to remain comfortable. If you plan on staying on a maintnance dose (as I am) you want to get to get to 2mg or less. This will make it much easier when you do decide to go off and is also alot cheaper to maintain.

not only camnyou start to taper, but if you want dont even take it, when the w/ds start... do 1/2, you'll be fine.... stop buggin
You are correct. More Sub the first 7 days (approx.) then drop down to low dose, for either maintenance or short term use. Stop the Sub before the 15-21 day mark and you'll have no withdrawels from the Sub...only leftovers from your DOC. See my response to your other post.
