I feel so strongly about this that I believe that the Pharmaceutical companies should assist users who want to stop or reduce their medications. I have created a petition at Change.org and I would be really grateful if you would visit the petition, sign it and make your friends, families and/or co-workers aware of it too. The more we get this issue recognised and discussed, the greater the chance that we can get the help we need. The petition has so far had the support of a few charities including Mind and also by Dr. Ben Goldacre. Thanks and my best wishes to anyone struggling with anti-depressant withdrawal.
