I have started a petition calling on the American psychiatric association to recognize and research Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome.

 

Please Share.

Great idea! Please everyone, sign -- it's not a lot of effort. Who knows, it might make an impression on the APA,

@Shem can you revise the wording of the petition to refer specifically to prescribed psychiatric drugs?

 

Post-acute withdrawal syndrome is a term from addiction medicine, referring to prolonged withdrawal symptoms from non-prescribed addictive drugs such as heroin. The APA might think you are referring to those. (By the way, the addiction medicine subspecialty of psychiatry doesn't give a fig about PAWS from addictive drugs or other psychiatric drugs.)

I signed this, it's super-easy and I think totally worthwhile. Anything that lends to the voice of this issue is worthwhile. And I second @Altostrata on the terminology change.

 

Great idea @Shem
