Restlessness, taking ciplar 10. Steps to discontinue Ciplar-10?

Hiiii.. I was suffering from restlessness from September 2011. Doctor prescribed me ciplar 10 tablets twice daily. After 6 months he changed my dose to half(half tablet twice a day). On April he suggest me to stop the medicine after sometime as when I think it can be stopped. Now I want to know that can I stop using the half dose of Ciplar 10? Or if there is any step by step process for discontinuation of Ciplar 10? Suggest me what will be best for me..

Although the dose of half tablet twice daily is small and discontinuing it should not pose any problem to you.
However in many cases,symptons rebound and cause problem to tne patient.
In view of this fact I would recommend you to taper off the medicine still more gradually.
Start taking half tablet daily for 2 weeks followed by half tablet on alternate days for 2 weeks and then take it every third day for 15 days and then you stop it.
This way you should not have any rebound symptom.
