Dr. Bob's Psychopharmacology Tips
"We are not priests with hidden holy books and a bird language which other people cannot understand."
If you take medication, it's important to be informed, but don't make any adjustments without the approval of your physician, who knows your medical condition, how you've responded to medication in the past, etc.
These tips are just that -- tips -- and not (with some exceptions) the results of scientific studies. They should not be construed as providing diagnosis, medical advice, or treatment. They have worked before and might work again, but they are not necessarily generalizable and should not be applied without attention to the particular situation and the involvement of a knowledgeable physician.
