  • I would think so, since if it doesn't your brain kind of has no idea what's going on. But I'm not a pharmacologist lol.

  • Thats really a question for a Dr. or your pharmacist.

  • Really depends on the drug a person is taking. Mainly I would really ask my doctor for sure.

  • It was a beta blocker.. metaprolol I got directions to quit it.. and have been experiencing a heavy head sensation all day.. it was off and on yesterday.. I'm assuming it is withdrawals because the cat scan was normal..
