Survey about stopping antidepressants

The Royal College of Psychiatrists is doing a survey to look at people's experience of stopping antidepressants. This is to help produce a 'Stopping antidepressants' leaflet. The problems produced by discontinuing antidepressants are seen as an area of disagreement.

Some time ago I set up my Antidepressant discontination reactions website. This was following a letter (at the bottom of the letters on this link) I had published in the BMJ. Psychiatrists were slow to recognise antidepressant discontinuation problems (see powerpoint from a talk).
