Hi, everybody my docter want me to take the medecine to cure my symptom should I trust my doctor or not. Now I'm drugs free for 10 month and it get better from last 2-3 months ago. I take the fluoxetine before for 7 month and I'm quite because of my emotion is so stable and don't feel anything like everybody in this form but my social phobia still occur now so I'm not sure should I trust my doctor? or I believe myself and fight with it without the medicine. Thank you :))

Hi, Aeroman Thank you for sharing your success story. I would like to know somethings about the disease that why we see the doctor. The disease that we got like major depress, panic attack, social phobia and etc. They are still here with us or not after we quit the drug and if yes. Is it better that we should manage by our self than go back to the med? I know the problem of withdraw also I got anhedonia is the main problem that is why I don't want to take the drug anymore but after I quite I also got the problem like social anxiety is also come back to my main problem also. So I don't know that I should go back on med again or I will fight by myself without the drug. The drug is good to cure something but it make the other side effect to us. I am not sure what is the best way to choose sometime I feel confuse. Sorry for my bad English and Thank you ^^
