    • I’m sorry, but I may have missed the question. Understand though that the tapering process STARTS at 2 mg or so. Because of the ceiling on effect, doses above 4-8 mg do not raise tolerance significantly. All of the effect of the medication occurs as the dose is raised up to that level… meaning that all of the trip down STARTS at that level.
