To offer any advice you would really need to post what antidepressants you were taking, for how long, and at what dosage.

Hello there! maybe if you are taking those meds for quite a long time, maybe your body get used to it.  so don't give ur body a shock. take it slowly in taking off from ur meds.  Cause a sudden withdrawal I think from ur usuals would really give such an impact.  ahm, try to ask your primary physician about it.

These medications generally need to be tapered off slowly, some more than others, because they frequently cause withdrawal symptoms.  How severe they are and how long they last are individual to the person.  This is something your psychiatrist should have discussed with you in advance.
