People's integrity is determined by what they do (or write).

They can also work miracles indefinitely. They are not always temporary.

> They have done for me. However i still wish i had never taken them! Alot of trouble with those. They can also drive you into suicide. I think its a bit like gambling. Only you dont gamble with money, you gamble with your life. Im not into that.

What precisely are these gambles? What do you approximate the frequency of these gambles is?

I'm glad. Me, too.

> I am quite content with the way i am feeling and doing.

How do you account for this?

> I have hope. All while reducing my meds.

You are still taking meds - right or wrong.

The drugs you take might be critical to your feeling content. You don't know. You are reducing them at a rate that is too slow to come to any conclusions. I have read your one-size-fits-all formula for discontinuing psychotropic medication. Do you base your formula on the writings of Heather Ashton? I don't think the Ashton prescription for the prevention of drug withdrawal applies to drugs other than benzodiazepines. Please correct me if I'm wrong. SSRIs and SNRIs are difficult to discontinue. I can discontinue Effexor 300 mg/day within two weeks. I have done it several times. So, too, have I discontinued Ativan 4.0 mg/day in less than two weeks. Of course, I am only one person - as are you. Either way, I hope you accomplish your goals.
