It is always: Preferable 2 discontinue meds progressively & slowly monitored by the doc who prescribed them 2 you. U should go back to ur doc, b frank and tell her/him the reasons u decide 2 stop ur treatment suddenly. A patient-doctor relationship is a 2 way street, u should feel comfortable 2 tell ur doc how u feel. Ur doc can help u w/ur weight gain & leg twitching. If u prefer a 2nd opinion see another dr.
