Hi charalambous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. I would never suggest to anyone to stop taking any medications without first consulting with your physician. If you have concerns about the medication or your treatment, seeking a second opinion would be better so they can assess you in person.

Sorry, I could not be of more help to you but a treating physician should be answering questions regarding medications.

Please keep us posted.
