Hello, Grace! How are you?

It would be best to get medical assistance with doing so.

However, the modern preferred method is usually to have a patient start to skip doses, while also gradually lowering how much they take.

As listed by the FDA, possible withdrawal effects may include nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea, rebound depression and rebound anxiety. It's hard to say how long it will take to be free of issues, you've been on it for years, so it could take a month, or so.

Is there anything else I can help with?
