The doctor is on the mental health
forum, not this one. Most people get off medications successfully, even if it's hard. All of them have a high rate of withdrawal symptoms, but they don't last long for the great majority of people. On the internet, however, those of us who had terrible problems and didn't get help from our psychiatrists or doctors come to find out what's going on and what to do, so you're going to find a bias on the net of people who had bad experiences.
