Its hard to stop taking mediciations and I would only do so under your doctors advise. They can give you tips and tricks and what to look out for.

I take zoloft and when my doctor lowers my dose we do so in small amounts. I will cut the pills in half and stay on the lower dose for a week before lowering again.   Just as when you need to increase doses, it should be done in very small amounts.
