So, 2 weeks ago, i decided to quit taking my medication. The side effects got worse, and I could not bare it anymore. I became constantly tired. So tired that i could not drive, or do anything for that matter. I was increasingly dizzy too. So I quit. It took about 5 days for the effects to wear off, and now I am back to normal. Suffering my headaches, but able to drive and function. Until there is something else to treat my pain, I will continue in this manner.
