I have been given all sorts of drugs to be on. I am in therapy, and am on medication. The therapy is slow going (due to my lack of interest in it), and my meds make me feel tired and run down. So I start going off my medication, and the voices start quiet for about a week, but then they start distorting my view of things, and it get to where I can't function. Does anyone know if they go through the same thing; whether it be tapering off meds (which I really want to do - because I want to be as normal as possible), or quitting cold turkey?
