Resolved Question:

Hi--one question first. Why are you on the lustration and the eleste and the nontelukast?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Depression change and asma
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. First off, you should taper off the lustration and the eleste over about a month, otherwise you may have problems with anxiety, insominia, tremors, and headaches. As for the montelukast, that doesn't require tapering but you may experience asthma symptoms like wheezing for at least a month. There are no side effects from stopping simvastatin other than your cholesterol levels may rise. You really should discuss all this with your doctor before you stop your medications on your own

I have not taken them for two weeks and don't want to start again the question was how long would I suffer with withdrawal what will they be
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--then can I ask you if you're having any problem with any withdrawal symptoms now?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes bad headache hot flush giddiness feeling sick as if I am going to pass out
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. Unfortunately you may continue with these symptoms for at least another two weeks but more likely they may continue for one or two more months. Slowly but surely they will subside but at least I'd suggest you see your doctor since there are other medications that can help with the withdrawal symptoms.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is there any natural things that could help with the withdrawal
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Vitamin C and B complex, Omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium supplements, and melatonin will help
