goose Posted July 13, 2010 Report Share Posted July 13, 2010 I have posted this in this forum as I believe the therapy I have received (cbt) has enabled me to attempt to come off my medication.I have been on anti-depressants for 5 years now. Also in recent years I have been prescribed a low dose of an anti-psychotic (for resistant depression).My psychiatrist and psychologist have differing views on this so I have made the decision myself that I am ready to come off medication. My GP has given me a schedule which if it works means I will be off the medication in about 10 weeks.I am a realist however, so if it turns out that I need to be on medication long term I am not adverse to that, I just need to know if I can function without it. My only reservation is that I am coming up to the menopause and am experiencing low moods in connection with that - but it only lasts a few days a month.Has the menopause affected others here , mood wise, and how did you manage it.RegardsGoose Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
