☼ RealMe: fighting depression/withdrawal from Abilify, Trintellix now on Prozac

Recommended Posts

In terms of how easy these drugs are being prescribed, I totally agree. And the situation is only getting worse judging by comparing prescription statistics from even 10 years ago and now. In the UK, there is a campaign to fight mental health stigma, which in itself is a good thing. The campaign makes it acceptable to talk about depression and other mind ailments. It also makes it easier to get referred to a doctor, which, in the majority of cases, will result in being put on pills. It’s even more frightening that young people, including teenagers and even children, are being prescribed ADs.

Well, well, well.  Today is actually the one year mark to the day that I went completely off AD's.  In this past year I have taken antibiotics as prescribed for infections.  Other than that, no prescribed medications of any kind.  I take an occasional tylenol or advil.  I take vitamins B, D, E and Fish oil.  I am very glad to be free of mood-altering chemicals that I was told by medical professionals I would have to take for the rest of my then miserable life.  Life is hard; I'm not making it harder with ADs.  Thank you, SurvivingAntidepressants.org and all you survivors out there. :)
