These notes are written to augment the information for consumers in - A guide to reducing or stopping mental health medication. They are intended for any prescribers helping someone stop their mental health medication, but it is anticipated they will be most useful for general practitioners.
For some people, reducing or stopping mental health medication can be difficult. The purpose of this guide is to give you information that can help you to come off your medication. It does not deal with the decision to reduce or stop taking medication, which ideally should be made in conjunction with your health care workers and key support people.
Recovery can be infectious. Simply seeing a person living in recovery – when they have travelled a road similar to your own - can be life-changing.
