At-Home Collaborative Program to Quit Antidepressants

Guided by Experts in Antidepressant Withdrawal

Antidepressants work by altering levels of neurotransmitters, generally Serotonin and often Norepinephrine. The body adapts to the increase in neurotransmitter levels and any alteration of these levels can cause intense symptoms. Anyone who has forgotten to take a dose of an antidepressant knows the debilitating symptoms that rapidly appear.

Withdrawal symptoms from antidepressants is called a ‘Discontinuation Syndrome’ and estimates show approximately 78% of patients will experience some degree of symptoms. The onset and duration of withdrawal can be drastically different from person to person, and range from troubling to disabling.  The withdrawals can look like depression, anxiety or insomnia and is often mistaken as a relapse.  

Unfortunately, few understand how antidepressants work or how they interact with other medications/herbs/otc or foods and all play a significant role in the proper taper rate and approach to withdrawal.  We assess each person for the appropriate taper rate based on their history on the medication, health challenges, age and other factors.

Most importantly, it is not enough to just taper, we must get the altered neurotransmitters working properly again or many reinstate the antidepressant.  This is why our program focuses so heavily on healing. Yes, we recommend slow taper rates, but we also guide each client in their recovery. 

It’s a collaborative approach to tapering that is done in your own home and under the care of experts.

Our program is a way to gently taper, minimize symptoms and continue your life while the antidepressant is leaving your system.  Start our program today!
