Good morning all. Hoping this morning finds you feeling well.
This forum is really helping me, just reading through people's posts and seeing that I am not alone is a godsend.
One thing I am noticing again and again are the posts where people talk about reducing or coming off their meds. So many doctors seem to advise ridiculously fast tapering, telling people who've been on meds for a while that 'it will be okay and there won't be any effects.' This is really not seeming to be true, by what I am reading of people's experiences.
I also weaned myself off for a period before, and something that really helped was reading The Harm Reduction Guide to Coming Off Psychiatric Drugs.
Its not anti meds, but is written by someone who did come off, with a view to educating people.
It's a really good read whether or not you plan to come off, so just Google that title if you feel like reading, it's a free file download.
Have a good day xxx
