Discontinuing Medication

If you are currently on medication, it is essential that you discus any plans to alter or discontinue your medication with your doctor. There is the very real risk of death or other life-threatening consequences associated with discontinuing or altering the prescribed dosage of any medication, and this decision should not be made without the assistance of the prescribing health care professional.

If you are determined to discontinue your medication against your prescribing physician’s orders, you must inform the prescribing physician of this so that they may assist you in doing so safely. I do not support, suggest, or advise that anyone should, under any circumstances, stop taking medication without the guidance and aid of the prescribing physician.
