See obgyn ASAP: Generally medications should not be stopped unless the dr. Tells you. Call the office and make an appointment. Such things as checking your gall bladder, liver, uterus for endometriosis,
pancreatitis interaction with other medications even otc. Or supplements need to be reviewed, perhaps the dose is just to high or not high enough or it is just not the one for your body. R/o ectopic pregnancy !
