Cut it back by 0.25mg at a time, and let your body be the one to determine how long you leave between reductions

I'd suggest between 2 and 4 weeks, favouring the latter, there isnt any inidiate rush to discontinue the med, and there is evdience that people who discontinue more slowly do bettwr.

If you arnt already taking an antidepressant for your panic disorder, then start..... sertaline (Zoloft) is a good one, start off at 25mg per day for a week, then 50mg per day, then 100mg per day. You can go upto 200mg per day if you need to. This treatment isnt habit forming and there is no tolorance. If sertaline isnt effective, mirtazapine 30mg at bedtime would be well worth a shot, it is a powerful antidepressant and antianxiety agent, and again isnt habit forming.
