From a legal aspect, there is no legal obligation to force you to take any medication you have. Whether you do or not is your decision.

However it may be wise to speak with your GP first before you stop taking anything you are prescribed to ensure it is safe to do so.
Nut once again, simply because you have been prescribed medication does not mean by ,aw that you have to use them.
