Not Taking Your Psych Meds

meditate-5353620_1280

Maybe it is the bipolar, but I tend to go through cycles where I stop taking my antidepressant or bipolar medicine because I start thinking either it doesn’t really work for me, I decide I would rather try natural alternatives, or I start thinking that the new agers are right and the pharmaceutical industry is trying to poison us all or trying to block or destroy our pineal gland with the medicine so that we can’t have real, meaningful spiritual experiences (or so that we can’t exercise any innate psychic powers – whatever they may be).

During these times, I do at least taper off. I’m not stupid. I don’t do the cold turkey thing. And honestly, I DON’T notice much of a difference with some of the meds, even after being off them for a month or more. However, I do notice a difference with the antidepressant and I notice it quickly. I’m not sure sometimes though if it is really the medicine or my fear of going off of it since I have taken antidepressants for YEARS and feel almost dependent on them at this point.

Anyone else experience anything like this cycle of suspicion, doubt, and desire to be off the psych meds for good?

  1. For me, meds have clearly worked better than anything non-medical that I’ve tried, so it’s not really an issue that’s come up. And the natural products industry seems just as sketchy to me as the pharmaceutical industry.

  3. Off my meds and doctors mostly. Took like 12 different meds for bipolar and all had side effects. The last one send me to the hospital for four days for Lithium toxicity in & out of consciousness and requiring dialysis to recover. Never overdose. Turn the meds upside down to ensure that. That was just the tip of the iceberg for me. Also have other examples for me, my wife, son-in-law you see. I’m approaching 80 but pass for my wife’s son: I kid you not. I have had all the problems of my immediate family, all but one who didn’t die from heart problems. The one remaining brother has had open heart surgery, heart attacks, 12 stints and could lose his legs due to diabetes. I recently had a mild stroke with little effect you see!

    Meditation, traditional Chinese medicine, acupressure and lifestyle for me.

    Worked for over 30 years in Washington DC commuting about 150 per day between Northern Maryland and DC, at the Pentagon and US State Department mostly 5-7 days a week, 8-10 hours a day you see.

    Does it just work for me!?

      1. Agree! It is my experience that we live in a society where we are prescribed drugs to treat symptoms but rarely treated to find a cure! And natural means to me is one of the leading cures!

  4. I’m hitting a point where I’m thinking I want to try more homeopathic treatments. Extracts and supplements, etc. Not so much kratom or pot, though, and not sure how I feel about CBD oil at the moment. But I’m on a lot of psych meds and I’d to at least get off see of them.
