tapering off of Fentanyl

Hello,
It's been a while since I have posted. I started tapering off of 75 mcg of Duragesic 6 weeks ago. I go down 12 every two weeks. The first drop I stayed on for 12 days now I am on 50 and can't seem to go down. I heard you can trim the Mylan brand. Is this true? If so is it a wise decision. Part of me just wants to take the jump. I also know that I have finals coming up and I need to be at work, two days a week. Yes I am detoxing while taking my first semester in grad school!!! Thank goodness the classes are online.
Anyway I need help going down. The third day is pure hell, I wind up taking clonidine pills, along with the lower dose patch. I want to be clean. I want this done with!! I WANT TO GO DOWN BUT DON'T WANT TO GET CRAZY!!
