I am tapering off two powerful meds right now and use alcohol to help with the withdraw effects. I force alcohol down me and feel awful for doing it. I start drinking early in the morning and drink all day due to the fear of side effects from withdraw of meds. It has been 4 months now. I decided to go off some of my meds due to terrible side effects taking them for a long period. Like developing Parkinson or Tardive Dynasia. Also my psychosis started coming back after reducing meds. Alcohol seems to kill everything but now worried about drinking to much. I definitely do not want to go back on those medications. I hate having mental illness.
