This blog provides specific information and support to people who are considering tapering off psychiatric drugs such as benzodiazepines, sleeping pills and anti-depressants and who want practical help on how to do it safely and successfully.
The questions discussed in the blog are those that have frequently been sent to our site for the last eight years by "accidental addicts." These are the questions that people want and need answers to and that physicians are often not able or willing to provide.
Although this blog is focusing on benzodiazepines and sleeping pills we will also be addressing questions related to anti-depressants and anti-psychotics particularly in the context of tapering.
The views on this site are those of the author and are not intended to replace medical advice provided by a physician who ideally is well informed about psychiatric drug reactions, tapering and recovery.
