No symptoms, no meds

I’m not on any medication, and I don’t have any symptoms anymore. Is this true for anyone else?

Does this happen to you too, do the symptoms come back?

I was off meds for a little while and did fine. Now the symptoms are back, and I’m back on medication.

Some people relapse, some don’t.

When I went off meds I was fine for about 6 months before the voices came crashing back and I ended up back in the hospital. But until then I was on top of the world. Losing weight, life was returning to normal. Be careful and mindful.

I’m on meds now and doing fine, but if I come off, I think it will be only a matter of time before my thoughts go weird again and muddled and my voices come back. Years ago after my first breakdown I had a remission and came off my meds with no problem, but I don’t know if it will work again, maybe I have to be on longer before I can even think of coming off.

I was symptom free for 16 hours yesterday. But they are back again today. No meds, no doctor.

that is a place i hope to be. Symptom free with no meds. I would really hate to become psychotic again. Its all because I believed in telepathy, the longer i reflect on its impossible nature the better I get

hey, good on you, i hope it continues for you.

Hopefully you never have to experience another symptom again! Best of luck and know that I am jealous :wink:

I refuse to get off my meds. I think that I am doing wonderfully and I am not going to jeopardize that to avoid a minor inconvenience.
