New Survey Aims to Better Inform Doctors About Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal

When discontinuing certain prescription drugs, akathisia and other withdrawal symptoms can be serious and long lasting. Some doctors are still unaware of these serious adverse effects that can occur when stopping pharmaceutical products marketed as antidepressants.

A current survey aims to collect relevant data and publish a paper to inform UK doctors and other health care professionals about the process of coming off these drugs. The paper will be available internationally and may also help inform health care professionals around the world. 

Please consider taking and sharing this survey regardless of where you live: https://uelpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0AR9IsQ61jsiXBk
