Millions of antidepressant users could experience "severe withdrawals” if they cut down or come off their medication, according to a new review.

I qualified as a pharmacy technician in 2008 and decided to leave my permanent post in Somerset to locum and gain some experience of working in a few different settings.

Importantly, each patient is treated as an individual and decisions about their medication are always patient-centred.

I have recently started a new post with Wye Valley NHS Trust in Herefordshire.

 

Herefordshire is a beautiful rural county in the west of England nestling in the shadow of the Black Mountains on the Welsh border.

 

I am contracted to provide a service to the Mental Health Trust whilst being based in the Acute Hospital Pharmacy. Although this is a new post for Herefordshire, I have been doing mental health pharmacy since the late 1990s.
