Our expert says:
Firstly, let me repeat - no psychiatrist or Gp should EVER prescribe antidepressants without discussing how eventually to taper them off, They should never prescribe such drugs long-term ( such as three years ) without discussing how to decide when to stop and how to do so.
Not everybody seems to get troubled by withdrawal symptoms, and your plan sounds reasonable as a way to come of. If significant symptoms do happen to arise, go back up a notch, and spend a week or so longer at that level before coming down the next step again
