Learn English – Synonyms for “get off medication”

phrase-requests

How would you say "I'd like to get off the medication" not using the colloquial phrasal verb "get off"? I.e., something that you'd hear someone well-versed in the English language say.

For example, can someone fill in a word or phrase to complete the following sentence:

I'd like to be ___ medication by next month.

Best Answer

Discontinue, drop, cease, quit, among other terms, can be fitted into sentences for the desired effect:

  • I want to discontinue that medication.
  • I want that medication to cease.
  • I want to drop that medication.
  • I want to quit taking that medication.
  • I don't need that medication anymore.

Note, I see that GEdgar already suggested a sentence like the first.
