Taking Pacitane, Lioresal for facial spasm. Safe to stop medicine?

I have been taking Pacitane, Lioresal and Rivotril since many years against facial spasm . Recently I have taken Botalimn Toxin Injection and now it looks like I don t need these medications. Do you think that it is safe to stop all of them at one point, without any withdrawal symptoms? Please reply to : YYYY@YYYY

Welcome to the forum. It is nice to know that you are better. Since you have been taking the medications since a long time, you should not stop taking medications without consultation of the treating doctor.

If you are better the doses will have to be reduced gradually and you should assess if you are comfortable. At intervals also see your treating doctor to get clinically examined.

You may suffer from dry mouth, abdominal discomfort, dizziness, or other withdrawal symptoms if you leave the medications all of a sudden, Take care.
