I'm currently on 60g a day and have:
30mg (standard pill)
10mg: 3 pills
5mg: 9 pills
15mg: 5 pills
40mg: 12 pills

One site said go down at 10% a month, another 10-20mg a day. So I'm going to do what seems mathematically easiest: 50 (30+15+5), then 45 (30+15), then 40 (40) over the next 3 days, stay at 40 for a week then go to 30. All depending on how I cope with withdrawal of course!

I can get more of the smaller doses compounded, but I might as well start with what I have.

The reason for going off it is I have my life more under control and thus the side effects have become more irritating than my anxiety. At least, that's the way it seems from here, we'll see how I feel once it starts wearing off.

was it hard to find somewhere to compound the smaller doses for you? My psych just talked to the compounding pharmacy she usually works with and they page they couldn't do it bc the capsules contain granules rather than powder. So i either have to find somewhere that will do it for me myself or else play with granules.

They're my leftover doses. No: it was easy, both the compounding chemists I went to were able to do it.

I've left a bunch of my current capsules with the compounding pharmacy the next major road over; she says she will make them into 5mg capsules, and then i can decide how many of them to take as i titrate down. She couldn't tell me how much it would cost, though. :/
