When people are distressed by their voices, medication is often one of the first things that might be offered by a doctor. In this section, we bring together reflections on personal experiences of taking medication, as well as information about its benefits and possible adverse effects. In an area that often involves controversy, conflicting information and strongly held views, we hope this part of our website encourages people to have the kind of conversations that support an informed choice.
Important note: Please talk through any questions, concerns or ideas you have about medication with a trained health professional. This could include a doctor, nurse, support worker, mental health pharmacist, or specialist peer.
