... refuses to change any of my meds again as I have finally become a balanced person without experiencing anymore episodes. This after a long, long journey of trial and error. I'm finally free from the torment. Just one thing, I cannot live life as a fat person. I've been going to the gym and dieting for three months to no avail. I've been with my doctor for many years and I am difficult to treat. Should I ween myself off of these meds so that I can take a natural mood enhancer called 5-HTP. I will be risking the possibility of a dangerous episode occurring in the interim. Any neutral drugs available. How do I ween myself off current meds to start 5-HTP? Thank you
