check with your doc: You can just stop it - there's no rebound. Why are you stopping it? If you have high blood pressure, you may need a substitute. If you have congestive heart failure, it may get worse. If you're on a diuretic, you may develop low potassium. This should be done with your doctor's supervision. That's why it's a prescription medicine.
