hey smitty, realise the post was 4 skitt but i thought i'd drop you a line. a few years ago i went of some toxic meds, largactil-sick of being a zombie and doing the largie shuffle, also went of xanax and serapax. i did this in a mental health facility, luckily my shrink did the paperwork 4 a 3 month stint, was very unwell, so we bit the bullet to getting my life back on track. was on a plethera of meds, now pristiq, and seroquel 4 sleep. keep talking with your doc, yeah 4 some (me) people meds will be a constant for some time, finding the right one is the battle. 4 once i am, for the time being of the med misery go round. hope alike you and all posters to be med free oneday, moreover depression free!! i am a realist, 4 me depression is a constant, along with a condition that took over 9 yrs to diagnose, severe borderline personality disorder. hoping for the best for you. jamie, aussie male, 37.
