Exactly. If you're experiencing "withdrawal", you're coming off it way too fast. 10-15% a week should really be the maximum of coming off a dose, depending on how long one has been on it, and how much of a dose, etc. They're habituating in some people -- they're not addictive. But this semantic difference has been debated time immmemorial on this board.

And you're right, Phillipa, 20mg is the general limit for epilepsy. Most doctors usually stop at 4mg for panic disorder. However.... I have taken considerably more for complex anxiety. It may just be I'm a big person, or I metabolize certain medications faster. 1mg for someone may be indetectable for someone else.
