Thread Name: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
Subject: RE: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
Guest, your line ......being on really bad drugs and not enjoying the high above made me think of something else to add - recently my doctor tried putting me back onto my anti-d's - at a quarter of my original dosage - and it triggered a manic episode and I ended up having a mad time of it (a very enjoyable, high, but freaky mad time). Anyway, seeing that I was tripping my ass off on a rather low dose of prescription SSRI drugs, a friend dragged me back to the doctor who immediately took me off the medication (and straight onto diazepam, mind you).
Moral: talk to the doc. He reassured me that I was right to come back and talk to him. I hadn't wanted to bother him (especially since I was too busy bouncing off the walls and telling anyone who'd listen about the amazing things I was seeing).

There are a lot of people who have posted here who recognise what you're going through, and have phrased it all so well. Hang in there.
