A number of us have submitted a petition to the Scottish parliament asking that action be taken on PDD or Prescription Drug Dependence. The focus is on antidepressants and benzodiazepines. We ask that they acknowledge the harms these drugs are causing to many people like ourselves.
Read the petition below and please sign within the 4 week time limit. People from any country can leave their signature and comment. Thank you in advance and we really appreciate your support for our petition.
1979 put on Clomipramine.
Failed attempt to withdraw from Clomipramine started on Seroxat 1992.
1997 Effexor replaces Seroxat after failed withdrawal.
2011 fail to withdraw from Effexor despite combined use of Prozac and Seroquel. Started on Cymbalta.
Anxiety not resolved by Cymbalta so taper off by 28th March 2012. Left on 10mg Buspirone and 1 quarter of 5mg Diazepam.
Anxiety at times very severe. 19th May take my first half of a 5mg Lamictal.
As of 5/11/2013, off all psychiatric drugs. Doing better but hope for more healing yet.
