Self unmedicating

So, I researched the medication I have been on all day....I am a doctoral student so I am good at research. I decided, from what I found, that I am no longer taking the medication. I checked the half life of the meds, and if I could stop abruptly, and decided that risking preterm labor was a better risk than how bad I was feeling. It has been about 5 hours since my last dose, and it is like night and day. My chest isn't heavy and my heart isn't pounding. I feel more like myself, less sluggishness and overall discomfort. Guess we will see if I end up in labor, but it is a risk I am willing to take at this time.
