  1. Interesting article written by Deborah Orr on her first introduction to Citalopram. She appears to have a possible adverse reaction to her initial dose of Citalopram. Refuted by many in the comments box who have had positive experiences with ssri's and who have really bought into the pervasive pharma position . Of interest, is the ensuing dialogue it prompts, in a discussion in the comments, by a poster claiming to be a doctor, calling himself "scubadoc'. Scubadoc is interesting, he seems to oscillate his position. I got as far as his comments in relation to 'SubjectiveSubject's
  2. Hello, I am new to this site. I have come here to hear of success stories and\or advice regarding recovery from Antipsychotics and SSRI's. At the beginning of July I took Risperidone 0.5mg and Prozac 20mg for 10 days and ceased it's use due to side effects such as Tachycardia, Emotional Blunting, Anxiety, blankouts and lowered cognition. The withdrawal was not extreme, if I remember correctly, I had a period of severe depression which resolved itself over a few days. Followed by a slightly manic phase which stabilized itself. For the next 2 weeks after the initial withdrawal I had

  4. The way a lot of folks in the pro-psychiatry group talk you would think that coming off their drugs always happens like this. "Consumer" wakes up on a bright sunny morning. After stretching and yawning she says, "Gee, I feel so great today I think I'll just stop taking my 'meds.'" After 2 weeks this individual spends over $1,000,000 on trinkets, has numerous affairs, steals cars in order to have accidents, and tries to kill herself. Tut, tut. That is not how it happened for me. It took me well over five years to screw up the courage to come off these drugs. I had always been
  5. I'm curious but was anyone here born with mental problems that function fine now without "Medications"? Meaning as young as you can remember? I ask because I had a lot of anxiety growing up as a child, mostly separation anxiety from my parents but I was never medicated. As I grew older I started to out grow it until one of my parents died in front of me when I was 15 which led me down this path, so really I am just curious. I almost feel like I got trapped and there is no way out. The withdrawal from this Anafranil is horrible, I just don't know if I got trapped on the Klonopin and mig

    CrazyWise Full Length Documentary

    I found this documentary to be very succinct in conveying my perspective as someone who has a mental illness and has been through the mental health system and is still currently "chemically incarcerated". I believe it will be free to watch until tomorrow after which I assume one must purchase or rent the documentary. It is called CrazyWise. https://vimeo.com/201079582/37ea6dd390 I hope you find it helpful. GFT
  7. Things I underlined in my copy of Anatomy of an Epidemic, by Robert Whittaker. (I’ve added bold here for emphasis). ‘Now there may be a number of social factors contributing to the epidemic. Our society may be organised in a way today that leads to a greater degree of stress and emotional turmoil. For instance, we may lack the close-knit neighbourhoods that help people stay well.’ P. 208 ‘…over the course of the next 30 years, researchers determined that the drugs work by perturbing the normal functioning of the neuronal pathways in the brain. In response the brain undergoes ‘
  8. While I was reading the reviews on Amazon of Robert Whitaker's new book: Psychiatry Under The Influence: Institutional Corruption, Social Injury, and Prescriptions for ReformI came across a great analogy, written by Ron Unger in the comments on one of the reviews, he was talking about the problem with psychiatric diagnosis and treatment- Think of it this way. Let's say someone is having trouble walking. There could be a lot of reasons. Maybe they have a biological illness that makes it hard for them to walk. Maybe they have an injury. Maybe their leg fell asleep. Maybe they are drunk. Wha
  9. Hello, My name is Daniel and I am 28 years old. I'd like to introduce myself and learn more about the people on this forum. I've been involved in the mental health system since 2011 (age 25). During that time some extremely traumatic things happened to me and as a result I have been somewhat debilitated for the past three years. I am just beginning to awake out of my slumber and to realize that I am not a permanently disabled mental patient. It wasn't always like this, though. I have worked with a slew of therapists, psychologists, case workers, and psychiatrists who have all told
