Thanks for your reply 🙂 As for why I want to try to get off meds — in addition to my own desire to figure out if I truly do need them or if the depression/anxiety were alcohol related…
my Dr. has said that he would like me to do so, because certain meds hit a point where they stop working due to hitting a tolerance level and he wants to do a hard reset of my body with regards to being on psychotropic meds and that then if/when I hit a depressive cycle (which he assumes I will) and ultimately would need them again, they will have a renewed ability to work… I know — sounds crazy, right? Even typing it makes me question the sanity!
Basically he wants me to get off them; give my body a break, then start me back on something new.
Has anyone been through something as crazy sounding as this?
