Our expert says:
You have to be honest with your doctor and tell him that you can't take this medicine anymore due to side effects. Otherwise he is going to think you are not doing well on medication and add something or make the dose higher! If something should happen and you lose conciousness they will not be able to treat you correctly if they don't know you are off the medicine. No patient HAS to take everything the doctor prescribe and you MAY tell him that the side effects of the medicine is worse than the disease but at all times he should know exactly what is going on otherwise he can not make proper decisions. Please just give him a call.
Just as important as your medical treatment is the communication between you and the doctor and if you don't see eye to eye you should try and find someone you can relate to.
