Well, is it bad in and of itself to go off this med fast or must you taper, and what does wean or taper mean? I was on 5mg went to 10 mg and got chest pain, endema I suppose, a common symptom, so I have gone back to five and wonder how long to stop? My doctor just said taper but what does this mean really? Pressure under control anyway and no doubt spiked because I had pneumonia. Again, all thing equal, what does taper mean?
