off the meds

I have this weird situation where I have been diagnosed with a psychotic disorder along the schizophrenia spectrum I want to get off the medications because I want to figure out the solution to what's my problem in life. I feel like I'll be able to figure it out by going off the meds because I'll be able to resolve this circle of thoughts. Is this ok?

The drugs stop your brain from crazy spinning thoughts, but beware if you come off without telling someone, coming off can cause mental horrors. Thing is dear one it’s your attitude to sort it out alone/ I know best, that may have tripped you up in the first place, you’re no expert on this, the drugs do space you out but don’t do this alone, find someone who you trust, friends family doc or councillor Good Luck

I have bipolar with psychotic thoughts and voices. I'm on loads of meds , and every so often I think that I'm ok and don't need meds. Trouble is the negative thoughts come with racing ideas within a few days, and invariably my behaviours changes and I end up hurting myself, and back on meds.

My advice is keep taking the pills. Why break what is already fixed!
