General Information About Psych Drugs

There is a lot of general information as well as resources for further research in the Harm Reduction Guide to Coming Off Psych Drugs published by Icarus and the Freedom Center, available free here:

The coming off meds guide has a lot of info about the benefits of meds and harm reduction for staying on meds, but is primarily a balance to the mainstream emphasis on taking meds -- it's more focused on filling the gap of information about coming off. I think the Icarus forums have a good mix of people taking meds who can be helpful, and the internet in general is filled with many people taking meds with experiences. I think the key is to search for information from many different sources and recognize that you are the expert of your own experience and that many people have many different relationships to medications and substances. You can also contact me at my website if you want more info and I'll do what I can to point out some more resources for you. - Will

Reality is just a crutch for people who can't handle drugs.

That line was a lot funnier when Robin Williams said it. Timing is everything.
