For those of you who have came off all meds especially anti depressants how did you know it was time? I had pp last April and was put on the antipsychotic invega. A month later I was hospitalized for depression and put on Prozac. I had to be taken off of the invega after six months due to hormonal issues. My old psych doc wanted to put me on a new antipsychotic but I knew I didn't need it anymore. After I came off invega my life dramatically improved. My depression symptoms that were there even with the Prozac improved. I was also put on a mood stabilizer with the Prozac in case I'm bi polar...I had no previous mental health issues. Now I'm on the lowest dose of Prozac and half of the therapeutic dose of lamictal. My new psych doc doesn't approve of the dosage but it works for me and I've been on that combination since January. She was unsure about taking me off during the summer like I wanted and would considerate in the winter. I want to come off of Prozac in sept and lamictal in dec. I feel like I don't need it anymore. And I have been doing so much work with my extended care team to make sure I don't get sick again. Any stories or thoughts about coming off medicine would be appreciated! Thanks
