Messing With Your Meds

Don’t do it!
Don’t do it on your own!!
Don’t experiment on your own.

Whether it’s increasing or decreasing the dosage in any way –
don’t do it without consulting with your physician/doctor.
This is true for any medication, especially for psychiatric medications.

#1 – It could be dangerous. Very dangerous.
#2 - It could cause more symptoms, stronger or different symptoms.
#3 - Realistically you could end up feeling worse, instead of better.
#4 - You are not an expert when it comes to drugs.
#5 – It’s like playing games with your health.

If you want to cut back, stop a certain pill completely, or take a higher dose – talk to your prescribing doctor.
If you notice strong or unwanted side-effects
- talk to your doctor.

Always, Always, ALWAYS consult your professional.
Maintaining your Health - physical or emotional is a business, not a game!
