In brief: See physician

It is not appropriate for the pharmacist to practice medicine.
If there are potential medication interactions, it's appropriate for the pharmacist to advise you about this. However see your prescribing physician who should be advising and guiding regarding your treatment course.

In brief: Possibly

Your local pharmacist can make suggestions regarding your medications but ultimately the decision to stop a medicine should be done after discussing this with your doctor. Your doctor and pharmacist can also work together to come a decision as well.
