I don't ever think it's a wise idea to go cold turkey off of these meds unless someone has an adverse reaction or allergic reaction to them. Your aunt isn't your doctor and is making a medical judgment. If the med is helping you, why do you need to go with out it? I too have MPD, but I don't find it quiets the voices at all. It does help me sleep which helps my overall functioning. Sleep deprevation can make your condition worsen. I am confused. How does she think that going without a good night sleep would help your condition? You must have been put on it, because you couldn't sleep. I am sorry, but I just don't understand that at all. Why does she think your addicted? There is a difference between physical dependency and addiction. I never heard of anyone craving this med. Perhaps, she doesn't understand the serverity of your condition and that it does require medication to help you function.
