More people than ever before are being prescribed antidepressants. Most see this as a short-term solution and confidently expect to come off them after a few months. Yet coming off antidepressants is not always easy, and severe withdrawal reactions include aggression, dizziness, vomiting, headaches and, ironically, depression, are common. The result can be that people remain on anti-depressants much longer than necessary. Joseph Glenmullen is a clinical instructor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and he has formulated a proven five-step programme to coming off antidepressants safely.

  • The signs that you may be ready to come off your medication
  • A guide to possible withdrawal symptoms
  • A clear, step-by-step programe for tapering off antidepressants to avoid unpleasant and dangerous after-affects
  • Checklists and charts to help you monitor your symptoms and graph your reactions
This is an essential book for anyone taking, or prescribing, antidepressants today.
