Radio report on difficulties of getting off ADs, on CBC RADIO

Recommended Posts

ON CBC RADIO:
FYI:  Not everything in this report is 100% sound, e.g. there is an interview with a woman who tapered by skipping days/doses incrementally -- and this might make people conclude that that is a good way to taper n-- and there is no through explanation of the 10% or slow gradual tapering. But, generally this report is going in the right direction as conclusion/thesis is that tapering off ADs is often fraught with difficulties, that doctors don't really know how to direct people in tapering properly, that online groups are helpful, that not enough studies have done on withdrawal/tapering, that drug companies have no interest in that aspect of research.
