    Do not stop... taper it off. I am not a doctor. Please ask your doctor for tapering advice. I have had an anxiety disorder since Feb. It is getting better but VERY slowly.. I was only on 20mg for 12 days and then stopped w/ no taper.

    Hi Colachie Depending on what you're taking it for, you should be fine to discontinue. One dose doesn't shut down your adrenals.
