Anti-Psychiatry

"When trying to withdraw from many psychiatric drugs, patients can develop serious and even life-threatening emotional and physical reactions. In short, it is dangerous not only to start taking psychiatric drugs but also can be hazardous to stop taking them. Therefore, withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done under clinical supervision, or with a thorough knowledge of the possible problems associated with physical and emotional withdrawal, as these drugs change the functioning of the brain itself and thus can lead to emotional, nervous system, and metabolic problems, such as rebound depression, violent impulses, tardive dyskinesia, weight loss/gain, et cetera. It is at the very least recommended that you do not go through this alone."
