“More than half (56%) of people who attempt to come off antidepressants experience withdrawal effects” notes a new review paper by Dr. James Davies, from the University of Roehampton in London, England, and Prof. John Read, from the University of East London.
“Withdrawal incidence rates from 14 studies ranged from 27% to 86% with a weighted average of 56%.”
“Nearly half (46%) of people experiencing withdrawal effects describe them as severe.”
Withdrawal effects can last for weeks or months the paper notes.
One study calculated the average duration of withdrawal to be 79 weeks or 1.5 years!
