Council for Information on Tranquillisers, Antidepressants, and Painkillers
Please note: CITA has now closed. Following the deaths of Pam Armstrong, her husband David, and also Pam's mother Hilda, combined with the withdrawal of funding for the charity, the trustees were forced to close CITA. At the final committee meeting it was decided that this website should remain as a testament to all the hard work put in over the years, and also as a guide for the many people still struggling with withdrawal from prescription medication.
The Back to Life book which we previously sold / asked donations for is now available as a free download on our Downloads page.
If you, or any you know, is attempting to withdraw from any prescription medication, please do not make any changes to any medication without consulting a specialist in withdrawal. NEVER suddenly stop taking any medication - it can be very dangerous.
If you need further support please contact (Bristol and District Tranquiliser Project) for help and advice. They are one of the few organisations left in the UK that are able to help people.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Any advice given on this site should not be substituted for the advice of a qualified medical professional who is well-informed about prescription addiction and withdrawal. The best combination is to work with both your doctor and an organisation with experience in prescription medication withdrawal.

Stopping mind altering medication suddenly is always the worst option.
