Coming off psychiatric drugs
Is coming off my medication right for me?
You may take psychiatric drugs for a variety of conditions. You may only need them for relatively short periods, but your diagnosis and symptoms may mean that you are expected to take them for a long time – perhaps indefinitely.
Many people who have come off their medication, even after taking it for a long time, find that in fact they can manage well and often feel better without it.
