This is important stuff right here! It's something any acupuncturist could have told you, but it's sometimes nice to have studies that support what Chinese medicine has known for a long long time!
I think this article is especially important, because often times when people stop taking antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, etc., they can feel "armor-less," like an important tool for managing their emotions has been taken away, leaving them incredibly vulnerable. Acupuncture, aside from helping the physical symptoms of withdrawal, can help immensely with the psychological implications of tapering off medications. It's a way to not feel so alone during the process as well!
