Recommended Posts


Please post below if you live in Mexico, Central America, or South America.

I am thinking that connecting our members geographically will enable

  • Face-to-face meetings or phone contacts for those of you who wish to meet
  • Support groups
  • Sharing information about doctors, clinics, compounding pharmacies, etc.
  • Organizing to educate physicians, hospitals, and university professors
  • Organizing to contact members of local and national government
  • Research by South American researchers

Even if you don't wish to do any of the above, if you are in South America, please check in here.

Please also click the Follow This Topic button at the top right so you will receive notices about others posting here.

AND -- if you've haven't introduced yourself to the rest of the community yet, please go to our Introductions and Updates forum and start a topic for yourself. You can post updates to your Intro topic to track your progress.

My name is Alejandro and I am struggling with AD withdrawal.

I have seen a lot of improvement but still in the waves and windows pattern.

As a matter of fact, I am in the middle of a nasty wave right now.


Hang in there.

Im withdrawing from lithium initially then will aim to.liquid taper rivotril since it comes in drops. Its a very slow taper I dont want to mess this up. I live in Medellin Colombia. I have waves over anything by just being late for a meal or missing out on exercise but keeping myself busy does help.

I'm from Bogotá, Colombia. Aunque nunca he tomado antidepresivos o antisicoticos, mi ex-novio de siete años lo hizo y terminó nuestra relación. Estoy aquí para aprender y para entender y tal vez sanar mi herida. 


Espero que les vaya bien con estas drogas del demonio.

I'm from Bogotá, Colombia. Although I have never taken antidepressants or antipsychotics, my seven-year-old ex-boyfriend did and ended our relationship. I am here to learn and to understand and maybe heal my wound.


I hope you do well with these demon drugs.

Hi santking and welcome to SA,


Unfortunately there are not many medical professionals who understand tapering and withdrawal from psychiatric drugs, which is why this site exists.


Please start an Introduction topic for yourself so that we can provide you with information and support.
