I just want a doctor to stop it is this so wrong...You would think they could do this one, I keep looking for things to try on my own...if they won't...its the darn not knowing..Are there that many reasons for this to happen, I want a instant stop heck at least within a week..is that wrong? my doctor seems to think 250 mg a day atenonol is low dose....... I can't even find a doc for a second opinion!View Thread
