You should ONLY TAPER under a DOCTORS SUPERVISION!!! Since you have been on it for a while, it will take quite a while to come off and you may need to stay on 5-10 mg forever - that is the amount the adrenals naturally produce. You need this to keep some body processes going - like your heart beating - that is why you need to come off SLOWLY and with a dr monitoring the process.
