Patient

Q: I've been taking labetalol for about 10months now due to having high blood pressure before and after giving birth: my doctor is now weaning me off them but I feel so anxious by the way he is doing. Basically I'm taking 100mg once a day for 2weeks and then I have to start taking 100mg on a Monday Wednesday and Friday for another 2weeks and then stop taking them all together and then I have to go back to my doctor when I've been off the tablets for another 2weeks. I'm worried about skipping days! Will this affect me in any way? My doctor has said these tablets are no longer Doing anything for me.
