Please don't stop: Your medications cold turkey- it could make you very ill. Please discuss this with your doctor.

Dr Fowler is so right. The risks of mismanagement can be very serious - you do not want to take those chances. A doctor can help you plan the removal responsibly. This is somethng people need to know when they start taking medications - so I thank you for raising the question. I hope others learn to think about it too.
