Yes.: In the very severe cases, delirium tremens can cause fatal seizures, although most withdrawal fatalities occur from falls while mentally incapacitated.

Have somebody with some medical credentials and the ability to prescribe some mild medication take you through this. And congratulations on your decision to quit -- you are doing a huge favor for yourself and others.

Possibly: Severe alcohol withdrawal sometimes called delerium tremens can cause death. The vast majority of people who stop drinking do not risk death however. If you have any concerns about your health when you stop drinking, consult your physician who can assist you in a plan for safely detoxifying from alcohol.

Continuing to drink is more likely to kill you than trying to quit.

It depends: Some people can handle caffeine and its effects better than others. For some as little as one 8 oz can of coke per day can cause withdraw headaches. On the other hand i know of individuals who can handle several cups of coffee per day without suffering any withdraw symptoms. If you suffer from headaches it may be best to avoid any amount of caffeine.

If a person stops taking femara (letrozole) cold turkey, what are the withdrawal symptoms?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology 52 years experience
Few: Femara (letrozole) blocks the formation of estrogen. You will therefore start remaking this hormone. You actually will have a decrease in the effects of the Femara (letrozole) which are joint pain, hot flashes, fatigue and generalized dryness. Most of these will disappear and the increased new estrogen will make you feel better.
