It seems to me that withdrawal is a good name for this board.
We have substance which deals with substance abuse and it's withdrawal.
But some of the anti-depressents and anti-anxieties can have severe withdrawal symptoms. The medicine board sometimes gets so many posts on this that other medicinal topics get lost. Moving the posts that have to do with this type of withdrawal to another place makes sense.
As such, I don't think there ia any stigma at all. And I would think that calling it 'discontinuation' would cause it to be overlooked.
My opinion, for what that's worth.
