It depends on why you are taking the medication, and what other medicaitons you are taking.  If itis for seizures, you can't reduce it without risk of seizures, so you should be talking with your doctor about alternative seizure control. In general, the tapering schedule is over three weeks, lowering the dose to lowest possible every third day  before you stop.   I would expect that you would be less sedated as you lower the dose.
