off this drug and wondering if I can just stop .
You can, but you may have some withdrawal effects such as diarrhea, headache, and what are called "brain zaps" which are funny electrical sensations in your head. They don't last long. You may, also, have the return of your symptoms for which you are taking this medication. Might want to have a discussion with your doctor.
