I stopped all my psych meds- 2 month update

Well it’s been 2 months since I’ve officially stopped my psych meds.

Cold turkey I may add.

So the question you all wanna know is- how am I doing??


I’ve had ups and downs.

Up wise:

Ive been able to think more clearly and make decisions rather than just hm hmm hmmm.

I’m also not so spaced out like I was. I’m still having fatigue, but it’s not as awful.

I’m not gaining a ton of weight like I was.

Overall, I have more of a personality again.

Down wise:

My anxiety has been through the roof .

I caved today and took a hydroxyzine because I couldn’t stand it anymore.

Now I want another hydroxyzine 🙄

My sleep patterns have changed.

I’ve been getting sick a lot when I eat because of the anxiety.

I do get snappy more quickly.

So yeah I mean, ups and downs. I’m kicking myself though for taking the hydroxyzine today. However, it’s a little blip and I don’t plan on going back on meds full time.

The only way I’d really need to is if my depression plummets again or if certain things happen.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    That’s quite an accomplishment. I was taken off all of my medications when I was in the hospital. They took me off cold turkey, I had hallucinations and lost 3 days of my life. I hope a time will come when I can get off all of my medications . I wish you all the best in keeping off your medication. I think it’s okay to take something to take edge off.
