shrinks and therapists do this. I used to take Paxil, which is now notorious for causing god-awful withdrawal...I told my therapist about it. She was like " must have caught a bug or something; Paxil doesn't cause withdrawal" Meanwhile, my prescriber was like "Oh, yeah, Paxil withdrawal can be awful..if it gets too bad, let me know; we'll put you right back on it" Argh.

Look at it historically; in the days of barbiturates, shrinks were saying addiction didn't happen and withdrawal was minimal. Same with benzos, stimulants, miltown, etc. The whole profession minimizes or outright denies pretty glaring problems with whatever it is they're busy RXing at the moment.

So..dont' fret. It does suck, but you're not crazy; your shrink is just following in a long tradition of ignoring or minimizing complaints from psychiatric patients.
