Medication Reduction


How to reduce dangerous brain damaging psychotropic drugs and be drug free with out devastating withdraw.

Please consider this Guide:

This guide brings together the best information we’ve discovered and lessons we’ve learned from:
The Icarus Project and Freedom Center.

It is not intended to persuade anyone to stop taking psychiatric medications, but instead aims to educate people about their options if they decide to explore going off. In a culture polarized between the pro-medication propaganda of pharmaceutical companies on the one hand, and the anti-medication agenda of some activists on the other, we offer a harm reduction approach to help people make their own decisions. We also present ideas and information for people who decide to stay on or reduce their medications.

Many people do find psychiatric drugs helpful and choose to continue taking them: even with the risks, this may be a better option given someone’s situation and circumstances.

At the same time, psychiatric drugs carry great dangers and can sometimes do terrible harm, even becoming bigger problems than the conditions they were prescribed to treat.

Too often, people who need help getting off psychiatric drugs are left without guidance, and medication decisions can feel like finding your way through a labyrinth. We need honest information that widens the discussion, and we hope this guide helps people trust themselves more and take better care of one another.

This guide draws especially from research by MIND, the leading mental health non-profit in the UK; the British Psychological Society, a mainstream professional association; and Peter Lehmann Publishing, a psychiatric survivor press.

More About Psychopharmacomania ™

Drug reps frequent doctors’ offices, take them out to dinner, give them enticements to interest them in their products. They target non-psychiatrists, in hopes that every primary care physician will know exactly what to prescribe for their patients. They educate them with psychopharmacological babble.
