The recent dangers of antidepressants such as Prozac, Paxil, Effexor and Lexapro have come to light. Media outlets around the world are documenting the blackbox warnings and restrictions for various portions of the public. Also, many drugs including Xanax, Klonopin, Valium and Ativan have had high addiction rates. Now that the dangers have surfaced, is there a way to quit without suffering withdrawals?

Many parents have tried to protect their children by stopping the medication abruptly; unaware that withdrawal symptoms may arise that could be worse than the original complaints.

Current statistics indicate that nearly 50% of the public is taking at least one medication with vast numbers taking multiple drugs. Yet the rates of depression, insomnia and anxiety continue to climb. With so many medications available to the American public, why is the mental health of our country declining?

The withdrawal symptoms connected to many psychiatric medications have left untold numbers fearful and unable to quit. Yet we are told that psychiatric drugs are not addictive and restore the chemical imbalance causing the symptoms. Then why are there huge percentages that have tried to quit an antidepressant, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic or sleeping pill without success?

Label Me Sane is a California organization that addresses the dramatic rise in the use of drugs within our society, particularly the increase of psychiatric medications. They also offer a tapering method called The Road Back How To Get Off Drugs Safely, that has assisted over ten thousand individuals in safely withdrawing from all forms of psychiatric medications, without the debilitating side effects so many complain of.

Alesandra Rain, one of the co-founders of Label Me Sane was prescribed a cocktail of psychiatric medications and spent ten years in declining health and failed attempts to stop. This drove her into a treatment center where she spent months regaining her mind from medications that were prescribed to help. It was the pain of withdrawals that inspired her to locate a program that would prevent others from suffering as she had.

I noticed the longer I was on the medications that my personality was changing. It was easy to reach sadness or anger but my joy for life was gone. I never knew that the side effects of the drugs could be worse than my original depression or anxiety. States Rain.
