Knowledge is Power
A Blog To Answer Your Questions About Mental Health Treatment
Can you stop taking your antidepressant medication "cold turkey"?
One reader asked whether it would be safe to abruptly stop use of an antidepressant medication. As a general rule, it's not a good idea...
I welcome requests for mental health related topics to be addressed in this blog. I am also happy to offer straight-forward Dear Abby type advice about personal situations related to mental illness.
If you have a question that you'd like to ask a Psychiatrist, or, a topic that you would like to suggest: you may complete the "Dear Doctor" form below, or, share your thoughts by making a "comment" on any post, I will dedicate an anonymized blog post to your concern.
