Sad that nobody has given you any guidelines , so I will!!
Firstly get the liquid, much easier to wean off.
Secondly if you want to minimise any withdrawal, unless you have a real need to get off very quickly, think in months not weeks or days.
Thirdly reduce slowly in steps, ie from 20 mg ( 8 drops)to 17.5 mg ( 7 drops)and leave at least a week ( preferably more) between each drop.
Do not be afraid to back off and increase again if needed.
Go more slowly when you get to 10- 5 mg, ie one mg at a time.
Consider a very low dose of prozac right at the end ( ie no more than 5 mg, get the liquid again!)
You have been on for 3 years so I would say 3-6 months is a reasonable time to come off it, unless that is you want to go through hell?!
