Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal Interview

Molly McHugh recently interviewed me for her blog and I think it’s one of the best interviews I’ve ever done. I answer this question and others.

Q. I feel a sense of urgency about this issue and from reading your blog I know you do too. You and I know the way ‘business as usual’ works now in psychiatry is to keep covering up side effects and the dangers of psychotropic medications while creating more and more of them.

And we both know it means more people becoming getting sicker, more dying from suicide and adverse effects from these medications triggering more acts of violence and other forms of criminal behavior in some who take these meds.

Folks need ways to heal (both physically and emotionally), not be drugged and overloaded with toxic chemicals.

What do you think is the most important first step towards withdrawing from psychiatric meds? What advice would you give to someone who is reading this and wants to take steps towards becoming med-free?

  1. I agree completely – think it was an excellent discussion of incredibly important topics that you are very skilled to answer.

    And you share your personal story which makes it of more value to others. You’ve been there, you’ve experienced what others are trying to overcome. And you triumphed. And are continuing to triumph.

    I am so impressed by all of your accomplishments and should also say – in the spirit of ‘owning my shit’ – that before we recently connected I was a bit bitchy (you know the story, just saying here!) in a FB group out of frustration.

    I’m over-intense at times, and have a very compassionate and sensitive heart, but I want (demand at times, which can be a problem) real-life action and solution and progress for what we all care about here – ending psychiatric abuses and better healing options for everyone.

    It will happen. All that we contribute adds to the whole. Eventually the lie-ridden Matrix will crack, and new wellness models will triumph as ‘primary’ ‘status quo’. Putting folks in backwards of hospitals for years is mostly from days gone past.

    Did that happen because of psychiatry? No. It happened because decent, caring, intelligent human beings fought against it and demanded change.

    More change to come, and I truly believe you are a leader in this effort and movement.

    Namaste, Molly
