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 like ourselves.
All advice is followed at your own risk. You are advised never to stop taking any medication abruptly, and without the consent of a qualified medical professional.
Stopping mind altering medication suddenly is always the worst option.
