Dear Suebird,

I have not weaned from this drug but I have from some others and I believe you can do this.  Just get mad enough to stick it out and not give in to giving up.

8 weeks sound reasonable to me.

I am sure someone here has weaned off of it.  Hope you hear from one.

Know we care and we are here to support you.
