TIme for discussion. It's time for you to have a frank talk with your health care team about your own wishes. No one can force you to take medication if you feel the trouble outweighs the benefits. There is no "correct" answer here -- only that you possess autonomy and a right to accept or refuse based on accurate information from trustworthy people. Best wishes. Be strong.
