I agree with John, that "all and NEVER" are extreme words for a doctor to use.

That being said, I have often wondered if I should just (gradually) discontinue my medications, because I have no idea if they are still working or not. I've gone from feeling suicidally depressed to what is closer to dysthymic (in the space of one and a half years). Maybe I would have gotten to this point on my own. Maybe the meds are preventing me from being as "upbeat" as everyone else. I don't know. I guess the true test would be to go ahead and stop, and see what happens. It's a big gamble, and I believe it's in my and my family's best interest to not try it at this time.

I don't know--to the casual observer, I'm a highly functioning kind of person. But what goes on in my head...a whole different picture of the world.

I've read some of Breggin's work, and I do think he takes an extremist approach that seems unreasonable.
