HI John look you can do this just about anyway you want to just so it is slow when you get down to 30 your going to have to slow down or go thew withdrawls your body will tell you when that time is Good luck and God bless........Gnarly
john, just take it as it comes. please try to relax. you are letting to much fear in. you are stressing yourself out. dropping at 5mgs a week is a doable amount . when you get down to under 30mgs is when you have to slow down. you have about 6 weeks before you get there.
sending peace and prayers,
