Quoting Tiffany Gillette:" but if im on it & i feel good, how will i know if i will b okay if i'm off of it ? how will my doctor know? because he isnt me.. lol ugh im so confused about all of this."
I quit taking mine when life got back to "normal". I was use to the babys schedule, and when my hubby and I got comfortable with our new adjusted life of taking care of a baby and it was not so stressful. I think it's just something that you just know when you don't need them anymore. The anti depressant i was on did not make life all butterflies and rainbows, it just made things easier to deal with, yet I still had some stress and worried about some stuff. *not sure if any of that makes sense. If you feel like you don't need it anymore, ask your doctor about how to get off it so you don't have any side effects with quitting cold turkey. If you find that you still need it after you have stopped taking them, then just start back on it again. The world won't end if you quit before you are ready to. It will be ok
