Some thoughts on stopping psychiatric medications

It's not always a good idea to come off psychiatric drugs...the push to do it no matter what is irresponsible. I've said it before on this blog but I'm not sure people hear it. People tend to read what they want to see I find. That's not to say I saw another way for myself...I didn't...and often there is no other way. People simply get really sick ON the drugs and the only way to get healthy again is to stop them and let the body heal. Most people do recover in time. I still have no regret for having come off the drugs even as seriously crippled as I am. The alternative was not more attractive for me and that remains true. But I sure as hell don't assume that is the case for many and maybe even most people who have been on many drugs for many years.
