    With the Plaquenil I don't think you will find much relief in such a short time on it & at half of a workable dose. I have read about people stopping P & flaring up. Those who stopped it abruptly had real problems similar to what you are experiencing. If you really need to get off it, I would taper down slowly, very slowly. Oct 23, 2015 Yes. My doctor took me completely off without tapering when I was diagnosed with central vision loss. I think macular degeneration is different but regardless, I didn't have to taper off Plaquenil like I would with a steroid. I'd been taking the highest dose permitted by the FDA for at least 3 years. Your tapering schedule will depend on which antidepressant you're taking, how long you've been taking it, your current dose, and any symptoms you had during previous medication changes. Below is a chart with sample tapering schedules for some of the most popular antidepressants.
