Gwen Olsen, author of "Confessions of an RX Drug Pusher", who worked as a sales representative for the drug companies for 15 years calling on doctors, suggests looking for an alternative doctor or a doctor who is involved in "Integrative Care" to supervise withdrawal of psychiatric drugs.
She says that traditional psychiatrists are opposed to this because many psychiatrists have a vested interest in giving patients drugs.
Psychiatric drugs should be tapered off very, very slowly and ONLY under the care of your doctor.
She notes this is especially true for antidepressants which would include Prozac, Zoloft, Effexor, Cymbalta, Celexa, Paxil, etc.
She notes that psychiatric drugs—antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, etc—should NEVER be stopped quickly, but must be withdrawn very, very slowly.
