Since 1978 or thereabouts, I have been blamed by family and therapists for discontinuing my medicine four times. This accusation is simply not true. Four different therapists—and I have received treatment in Texas, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware—have each independently found their own reasons for discontinuing all my phenothiazines. Even though I pleaded with the psychiatrists to keep me on phenothiazines, each said he or she would not continue this medication. The medicine was abruptly stopped, and I was off and running, always with an "adventure" before being hospitalized. It seems to be a rule that if one changes psychiatrists, then diagnosis and medication also change.
