Our expert says:
Aropax, and its kindred members of the SSRI family of antidressants, do not cause addiction. Fortunately. But some people are sensitive enough to changing blood levels of the drugs, to experience symptoms on withdrawing from it, and such withdrawal may beed to be carefully planned. I suggest that you see, not a neurologist, but a psychiatrist familiar with the use of these drugs and with handling transient withdrawal effects from them, and work with him/her to plan a gradual reducation from the drug, and to tolerate such symptoms as may arise, until you are clear of the drug and the symptoms stop.
Dawn --- don't get so frothy ! Drug-free alternatives are not an immediate option, as the first priority is getting off the present drug, as conmfortably as possible ; THEN soncidering ALL available alternatives, if, after withdrawing from the drug there actually happen to be any problems remaining and needing treatment.
