In brief: Want off medication

I am not sure of your age, so that makes it difficult to answer your question.
Having an honest discussion with your doctor is needed, and this is also needed with your dad. The medication may be helping you, and this is likely why there is hesitation for you to come off the medication. So, start with an honest discussion with your dad and your doctor. Consider a slow taper of your medication
