Need to exit from the drugs
Hello Sir/Madam, I am Praveen. I have been under medication for depression and anxiety from the past 6 years. I am doing good and I am feeling lot better. I feel like I can manage myself without medication.Also, I am worried about any side effects of consuming these psychiatry drugs for a longer period. I have been requesting my current psychiatrist to stop medication or atleast start the process of withdrawing from medication from the past 2 years. However, they are not considering my request to stop my medication. I feel like I should take second opinion. My current medication: Citalomine -20 mg per day Mirpine - 15 mg I really thank your time and suggestions. Thank you so much, Praveen.
