Throughout my anxiety journey I've been on probably around 20 different psych meds. None of them ever seemed to really help, but they all gave me their own side effects, lol. Xanax helps of course, but I'm very dependent on it now. I've been taking it daily for a few years and I would like to just get off of it and see how I feel. I'm also on prozac and imipramine. I'm pretty sure all these drugs really do for me is make me feel foggy headed and out of it. I'm sure medications work really well for some people but after trying them for about 3 years with no positive results it seems like it's not the path for me. I'm going to talk to my psychiatrist and see if we can come up with a plan together to get off of everything safely. My only fear is that I'm wrong and once I get off the meds I'll go totally crazy!! I've been on them for so long that the idea of not being on any medication is scary.
Anyone else realize medication wasn't for them? What were you taking and how hard was it to get off of it?
