For how long to take meds?

Recommended Posts

So I am new to HPPD, and I am going to wait a few months before starting meds, if necessary. But I would like to know if this is something that I would need to take forever, or if they can help to revert your brain to a "normal" state, then you can quit them?

There are no hard and fast rules to hppd. As you are new to hppd, you might recover in a few months anyway, if you stay sober. If you start seeing signs of recovery, i would avoid meds as much as possible and just try to heal naturally, even if it takes a year or more.

If you don't see any signs of recovery after the few months, you then need to decide on the medication you want to try and work out a plan with your doctor. There is no "cure" as such, so it is impossible to say if you would stay on a med for life or, if it helps, you can then think about tapering after x months.
