    Why and when did you decide to come off drugs?

    I'm putting this question out there, partly as a reminder to myself, hopefully as a help to others who are struggling... I am in such physical and emotional pain these past few weeks. It is getting unbearable. My wife and I are trying to stick to the commitment not to go back on the meds. But boy, do I think I want to at times. Especially right now. So I'm here to remind myself why I stopped the psych-drug merry-go-round. I hope it helps you too. And I would love to hear your "why" story. It will be encouraging to all of us, I think. Anyway, I went off of the meds because I did
  2. Hello everyone, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder type 1 when I was 15. It's been 12 years and I have taken quite a few different medications over those 12 years.

  5. Hey, everyone. Has anyone on this site has a positive experience from their medication? Like it took away panic attacks or helped them get through a really bad time in their lives? I know that everyone here is trying to get off, but are we just the outliers on the bell curve? Would these drugs be so popular if all they did was hurt people? Don't get me wrong, Prozac has completely screwed up my life and I want it gone, but surely there are positive stories out there, right? Fleeing Fluoxetine
