So I'm thinking about talking to my Doctor next month about coming off my medication

I’ve been on my medication for the standard two year treatment and I’d like to try a med free trial with my doctor’s blessing…

What makes 2 years a magical number for taking meds? Is there support for this? I’ve been on meds for two years too now.

It’s what my psychiatrist recommended and it’s standard treatment…

I’m honestly very curious about myself going off meds but worries of relapse scare me too much.

It seems like you are in good shape with the job and everything… why try to shake things up?

I’m not trying to shake things up. If I have his blessing I will come off Abilify. My psychiatrist told me to discuss it with my GP when the time came…

Well I hope for the best for You! But be careful!

Good luck, I hope the dream will come true. :slight_smile:

I hope it works out for you.

Or you can ask for half the dose for starters.

Just be careful with it, taper off and good luck!! :blush:

My doc said I have to be on meds for at least 10 years. It’s been 7 years so far. Oh well, I don’t mind taking it anyway.
