The klonopin will be the toughest to come off of since you might get withdrawal symptoms. The blood pressure medications won't cause any major issues except that your BP might get higher than usual which you can combat with diet/rest/exercise. And the cholesterol medication won't be a worry because it stays in your system for several months. The aspirin hopefully you can continue. You can also write drug manufacturers and ask them to provide you with medication for free since you won't be able to afford them. As long as you have a script they will always comply.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
