Sally will not advise you to stop any prescription medication without first consulting with your prescribing Dr. If the aim is to work towards weaning you off any prescription medication, this will also be done in consultation with your prescribing Dr, but not before treatment with the appropriate nutrients is undertaken to prepare your body to come off the prescription medication.
