I came across this charity online. They are set up to create awareness of and collate information about "adverse psychiatric side effects of everyday medicines."

 

They mention withdrawal from antidepressants and tranquilisers.

 

It has some interesting links too. There are several videos of talks from their conference in 2008, including talks by Ben Goldacre, Heather Ashton, Charles Medawar and David Healy:

The founder of the charity, Millie Kieve, set it up after the death of her daughter Karen in 1995.

 

 

I came off Seroxat in August 2005 after a 4 month taper. I was initially prescibed a benzo for several months and then Prozac for 5 years and after that, Seroxat for 3 years and 9 months.

 

"It's like in the great stories Mr.Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer."  Samwise Gamgee, Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers
