    It is safe to come off it but make sure you take the doctor's advice on how to come off it and how to reduce the dose slowly etc.

    Good luck.

    Hi Mili

    how long have you been on the meds as they can take at least 6 weeks to start to work have you asked your doc about this and how you feel ?

    take care
