From what I've heard, it's like benzo withdrawal and having managed that with DD1 you have to take it down incredibly slowly. We went from 10mg clobozam twice a day to zero but it literally took us a year. So we reduced the morning dose by 1/10 (1mg), waited 2 weeks, reduced the evening dose by 1/10. And carried on like that, taking out 1mg a month. We stopped every time DD1 was ill so the whole thing took about 13 months.

Now I've no idea if you have to go quite that slow! grin but you can get it out, if you go slow enough.
