Thank you Dr Timimi, “…Diagnoses in psychiatry are not diagnoses..” After 65 years of Neuroleptics (and “Longterm Schizophrenia”) researchers like Professor Robin Murray are now “promoting an idea” that it’s possible to carefully withdraw from Neuroleptics and improve as a result. Professor Robin Murray also “promotes an idea” that when a person comes off drugs quickly and goes mad – it’s the original presence of the drugs, that is more than likely causing the madness. Even though It took me 6 years to go from 25mg of Modecate per month to 25mg of Mellaril per day. Anxiety was still a big thing with me. But thankfully I was able to find ways of dealing with it. Twelve step fellowship supports an idea of “acceptance being the key” – “acceptance in terms of Equanamity” for me is definitely the key. I was at a 12 step meeting last night and some people present related their experience of being raised on disadvantaged London council estates. They said their neighbour’s might be Drug Dealers or Bank Robbers – but the “Nutters” were the ones everyone was really frightened of. But since most “Nutters” come off their drugs abruptly without the advice they should be given, then they cannot be held responsible for going mad. I went mad several times when I attempted to stop taking drugs abruptly, with medical support. I had to completely abandon the medical approach to recover.
