Leila posted a topic in General DiscussionHello everyone. I'm kinda new here. I've posted a little bit. Tried to taper down....gave loved ones control of my meds but ended up biting their heads off till they gave it back, lol. My Psychiatrist told me not to stop cold turkey because there's a danger of rebound depression/anxiety down the road. Problem is I've moved so he can't really help me taper down. I've talked to 5 health care professionals in the past month to see if someone could help me taper off my adderall... I'm either told to just stop on my own it's no big deal or that I need a specialist's help. *sigh* So I'm stopping cold turkey. I have about a week & a half supply left. For those who quit cold turkey, did you notice depression and anxiety? Did it start as soon as you quit and persist for months or did it start a few months down the road? I'm very worried about this because in the past I stopped taking Adderall, Klonopin and Lexapro all at once and had horrible depression and anxiety. I have problems with it anyway but this was bad. And I'm kinda scared.
