No please do not; depends on your doctor
Hello once again sir.
is commonly seen with use of the recently prescribed medications and is also quite commonly seen in patients diagnosed to have GERD
, so the cause could be any one of these two. I would not recommend a discontinuation of the prescription, but I do understand that the lightheadedness can result in discomfort and would thus advise you to revisit your prescribing doctor.
As for the Ativan
, if this was prescribed by your doctor and asked not to discontinue, then it would be best not to discontinue this medication without informed consent and approval of your doctor. But if your doctor has requested you to discontinue ativan as he/she has started you on amitriptyline
, then it is best to discuss with your doctor the pros and cons of both medications and choose the one most suitable for you.
I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me anytime, and regarding any clarifications you have.
