Remotive contains an extract of St John's wort.There are well documented withdrawal symptoms when this medication is suddenly stopped.
Symptoms reported include headache, nausea, lack of appetite, dry mouth, thirst, chills, loss of weight, dizziness, trouble sleeping, tingling sensations, confusion, and fatigue.
She stopped because she has started taking melatonime to help her with her sleep and didn't want to be taking too many tablets. She was really unwell last night.She has been experiencing dizziness and has had trouble thinking. How long will these withdrawal symptoms last? I don't know whether I should get her to take one remotive a day to ease the symptyms or to leave it. What can I give her to help her deal with this withdrawal if I don't give her remotive?
