I read Brian's and Victoria's responses and, in the balance, Brian might have an idea there about just continuing on a "maintenance" dose to keep yourself steady. I am still suffering the effects of withdrawal (and only after taking one half a mg./day for a couple of weeks. My body chemistry feels unbalanced and I feel like shit, as you say. I'm tempted to just say to hell with it and take a 1/4 tab to straighten me out. I guess I just want to be done with it all and that's why I keep refusing to take it. My advice would be if it gets too much to handle take only as much as you feel will alleviate the symptoms. Certainly don't jeopardize your job. At the same time try to slowly wean yourself off over a period of a year maybe. Good luck.
