Quitting a medication can be difficult. Some types of medications can be even more difficult than others, especially many psychiatric drugs.

Tapering off such medications is a hit-or-miss proposition. Some doctors know how to help patients do this well. Others don’t have a clue.

The mission of Quitting Meds is simple — help you understand how easy or difficult it will be to quit your medication. With your help — recounting personal experiences, and sharing advice about what worked best for you — we believe that this can become a most invaluable resource for the millions of people who grapple with quitting their medications in the most healthy way possible.
