Brief Answer:
It should be stopped sowly

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Although it is advisable to discontinue zosert under guidance of your doctor but in case you are not able to see him personally you are requested to stop it slowly. Ideally it will be better if you reduce 20%-25% every week and so on. This will minimize the chance of withdrawal side effects associated with zosert.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
