Hi, anon! After only 4 days you'd likely be fine but one should NEVER stop psychiatric medications except under a doctor's supervision. It was prescribed for a reason and you risk not only discontinuation side effects but also a rebound of the problem you took it for in the first place.
Best wishes, WCV
My doctor wanted to prescribe Remeron. I had researched it before he mentioned it. Like you, I did not like the list of side effects, most notably rapid weight gain and the possible withdrawal symptoms. I told my doc I would stick to Amitriptyline 25 mg PM for now. Very slowly tapering off the Amitriptyline 1/4 reduction over 2 week periods. So far no withdrawal symptoms. Check with your doctor regarding discontinuing it.Best of Luck to you :)
