In this presentation, Dr. Paul Anderson will explain the mechanisms of action of common neuropsychiatric drugs, and explore the potential adverse reactions that can occur when adjusting or reducing the dosages of antidepressant, anxiolytic and sleep medications. Using descriptive examples, Dr. Anderson will give practical advice for clinicians seeking to help wean patients off these common pharmaceuticals. For each drug class, there will also be discussion of evidence-based natural medications that can facilitate the tapering of neuropsychiatric drugs.
