Sadly you will still have to taper off, even after only one week of taking them. They are strong and get into your system that fast. I have been reading studies on it as I was wanting to get off but my doctor won't let me, so was going to try and put info together to make my case but all I have done is made my self realise that I am not ready to go of them just yet. I have been on them for 7.5 years.
They are also for anxiety and probably why you were given a low dose, as that would be enough to treat it. I am taking it for anxiety as well as major depression disorder. For the first time in 7 years, i actually have started feeling happy again and that's why I wanted off but I realised that's the worse thing to do.
