Petition for Tapering Strips in UK

Recommended Posts

ButterflyHope

Hi,

 

A petition has been started at the link below to 'Provide Tapering Strips for people who want to withdraw safely from antidepressant drugs' in the UK.

 

https://www.change.org/p/provide-tapering-strips-to-help-users-who-want-to-stop-taking-anxiety-depression-drugs/u/23162467

 

At the moment antidepressants are only available in tablet or liquid form on the NHS at doses that are too high for many people to safely taper off, leaving us weighing our own doses or making liquids ourselves. This is something the Dr's don't advocate but nor are they able to provide appropriate taper doses themselves.

 

More signatures are needed to put pressure on authorities to provide tapering strips and help people get off antidepressants, reducing the suffering of currently advised rapid withdrawal aswell as the burden of unnecessary long term antidepressant prescriptions on the NHS budget.

 

Thank you

Butterfly
