If it's working for you, then I wouldn't worry about having to come off it. I've been on it for something like 10 or 11 years and the only reason I'm coming off it is because the diagnostic criteria for bipolar II changed, meaning that I finally count as bipolar (!).

If you're on a split dose, does that mean you're on the tablets rather than the extended release capsules? If you're able to tolerate the tablets then you'll have less of a problem coming off anyway. My problem is that the tablets give me ultra-rapid cycling mood swings - 2 hours of hypomania, 2 hours of feeling quite good, 2 hours of depression and 2 hours of utterly bleak suicidal blackness if only I could muster up enough enthusiasm to move. So it's awful that 37.5 mg doesn't come as capsules in this country. I'm going to have to split the tablet or something like that.
