Hello
I have been taking anti psycotic and anti depressants a while now.
I have recently made the decision to come off them for side effect and ethical reasons.
however it does scare me that I may relapse into being out of control again without them.
just needed to share that really.

I realize that you didn't ask for advice but please speak to your doctor about it. Some of those kinds of drugs have even worse side effects if you just stop taking them. You need to stop taking them incrementally and methodically.

Oh sorry I should have said with the help of psychiatrist and mental health nurse.
Tried coming off them cold turkey (excuse the expression) never again!

Involve your family/others close to you. Bring them to speak with your doctor/nurse. What behavior should they be concerned about, and how should they respond in your best interests?
