#WeekendCoffeeShare: The Pain of weaning off Psych drugs

First my confession. I don’t drink coffee and I personally don’t have any in the house.

If we were having coffee it would be at a coffee shop. I would tell you how painful weaning off psych and anxiety drugs are. Still on the first one. I have 1-2 more depending if we wean me off Klonopin for anxiety. I am weaning off my bipolar drugs right now.

I spent most of this week in bed. Serious withdrawal effects.

Have a great week and God bless everyone.

  2. Goodluck with getting off your drugs. I went off mine about 4months ago. The drugs were cusing most of my problems. I now take on!y aspirin for pain. Hugs!
