Carlyn - welcome to Healingwell!
Some people use the suppositories as their maintenance medication. So, I don't believe you can be only them "too long" unless you were to develop a sensitivity to them.
I don't advise tapering until symptoms are stable for a least a week. Then taper SLOWLY. Every other night - making sure symptoms stay stable. Every third night, etc.
Maybe try another week and see how things go before starting to taper?
