Taking off anti anxiety meds... w/o doctors consent - April 7th 2012, 03:19 AM

As the title shows.

I have fully discontinued all my anti anxiety drugs for two days.
Haven't felt any anxiety because I am cooped up in my room for
4 days doing projects, playing games and stuff. But after 3 days
I'll be back to school again after the long holidays. I am anticipating its
rebound, partly to humor me and to get my mind straight. hahaha

My discontinue with meds is without my parents knowing or my doctors approval. It this suicidal? I know taking off meds suddenly is dangerous.
How long does it take for me to feel the rebound of my meds? Is rebound real?

I need to get my mind straight again, undergoing medical treatment did help my anxiety but did not help me function normally. Exams are coming up and with meds my mind is blank. Now, I feel a bit more mentally active than before.

was taking: resperidone, inderal, lexotan, rivotril
diagnosed with: GAD, SAD, Bipolar, OCD

My mind is always blank as I have stated in my other thread my experience
in taking anti anxiety and anti depressants.

I've never heard of rebound and I do not know the exact answers to your questions.
But I really suggest you tell your parents and talk to your GP about this.
From what I know of medication for anxiety, it takes time for your body to get used to it and just not taking it because you do not like the effects, or whatever the case may be, is not a good idea.
I also suggest that if you are having trouble while on these meds, from what this and your other post indicate, that you let your doctor know and your parents.
Give the meds a couple more weeks try and then if things do not change or if they get worse, tell your doctor and see what she recommends.

"i don't care your intentions. I just want you to know my self-hatred never took me where I wanted to go. At the end of the day...I can pick at the pain but I can't cut it away."
