    Found this article,

    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/176773.php

    "The risks are greater than the benefits and Dr's should no longer prescribe and pharmacists, no longer dispense......"

    Patients should see their G.P. and discuss alternative treatments. Patients who wish to stop treatment before seeing their Dr. can do so at any time". I would think that this means there are no withdrawal symptoms.
