I would contact another doctor for a second opinion, I can't believe the response you got from that doctor, very unprofessional! No one should stay on a medication that they are addicted to. Did you try weaning her off a little at a time. Decrease a tablet a day each week and see if that helps. She will experience withdraw symptoms and they include: dysphoria and/or rebound headaches have been reported following abrupt discontinuation of the drug and notable physical and psychiatric responses such as anxiety, dizziness, headache, or lethargy. Good luck with this.
