Standard practice on this side of the Atlantic would be to stop straight away. It would be extra prudent to cut down to 10mg a day first. The extremely long half life of the major metabolite (nor-fluoxetine)usually prevents a discontinuation syndrome, but there's certainly no harm in going slow if you are worried.
