    Hello, NO you can't stop the drug without the go ahead of your Doctor. You need to see him first. He has to evaluate you to be sure it's safe to either reduce the dose or withdraw the drug. There is a risk of relapse, meaning the condition getting worse if you stop the drug without proper guidance by Doctor. Please see him/her first. Good night
