blackbird Posted December 11, 2006 Share Posted December 11, 2006 Just a couple of questions.. How long do the experts recommend staying on anti-psychotics for after a psychotic episode? Is there a time limit? Can you be prescribed APs for life? Does it vary from illness to illness? I'm just wondering how long I can expect to stay on APs. Surely they can't be good for your health over the long term (though I guess its better than suicide)? Sre there any APs that are safer to take long term than Olanzapine? questions questions questions! Also with regards to ADs, how long do you have to stay on them after a major depressive episode? My last major depressive episode was in 2001 but I get the most godawful withdrawal symptoms every time I try to quit Prozac - barely functional, depressed as hell. Can I expect to be on Prozac then for the rest of my life? feedback appreciated blackbird x Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
