See your physician before making any medication changes, which can be dangerous. He/she will want to explore your reasons for wanting to come off the medications, as well as perform a physical examination. You will be able to come off these medications safely under your physician's guidance. http://www.bcnc.org.uk/symptoms.html , http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682053.html
