      I have been on it for 6 years. I tried getting off of it last year but I was in bad shape so I went back on it.

      I’d recommend meeting with a therapist regularly if you aren’t already. The best way to make sure you’re ready to get off medication and actually have success once you are off it is when you heal through therapy before you stop taking it. Taking medication alone and then stopping it won’t fix the underlying issue it’s more of a bandaid covering the issue that therapy can heal more permanently. Medication is definitely a great resource to have in the healing process though. I’m glad it has been working well for you!

      my experience has been that these kinds of meds help stabilize you, they don't cure you. if you stop taking them, it's very likely you'll be unstable again. but if you want to stop, let your doctor know first, they'll know best
