Like Renee I'll reiterate, take it slowly! I waited a month or two between steps down and I had an incredibly uneventful withdrawal.

Ed, I have no doubt that you know what you're doing and that you have gone through this before.

But for the newbie, or even just someone who isn't as used to listening to their body's signals, it can be very tempting to think that you are ready for the next step down, that you're feeling good and want to keep moving. But take it slowly!!! Don't let your good mood and enthusiasm (after depression, these feel almost like drugs themselves!) blind you to the necessity to take your cessation slowly and carefully. At each step, before you reduce further, take careful stock of how you're doing emotionally and physically, and discuss it with your doctor. :)

That's my two sense. I'm not a doctor, just someone who's been through this recently for the first time.
