Amanda Bynes Is 'Stable' & Off Meds, Posts Christmas Selfie

Amanda Bynes Is 'Stable' & Off Meds, Posts Christmas Selfie

Amanda Bynes shows off her new dark hair color in this Christmas Day selfie posted to Twitter on Thursday (December 25).

The post came hours after a report from TMZ stated that the 28-year-old actress is off her meds and “acting completely normal” these days.

Amanda is reportedly “completely lucid” and things have gotten so much better for her mental state that her parents have given her limited access to her bank accounts again.

The recent trip that Amanda took to USC, where she wants to enroll as a psych major, was planned by her and she has been spending her time doing stress reducing activities like yoga, meditation, and pilates.

We’re glad to hear that Amanda is getting better! Bigger picture inside…

    I have stated this before ” the exploitation of this woman’s illness by any media site is the epitome of unethical media manipulation and contributing to those suffering from mental illness public ridicule.

  • Deborah

    One doesn’t “get better” OFF the meds with this diagnosis. Please stop reporting on this young woman’s psychiatric status.

  • Deanne

    That is not the face of a well person. If JJ and TMZ had even an ounce of compassion or integrity, they would leave this young woman alone. She has had a rough time and will continue to unless she gets on a good maintenance schedule with her meds and therapy.

    If meds are definitive proof that they help the mentally ill I’m for it. But meds shouldn’t be the only solution if there are other means of stabilizing a person. the medical industry has a vested monetary interest in maintaining the concepts that costly meds are a solution…but how often do we hear that the patients don’t feel right and that encourages them to go off them..in the meanwhile they’ve reverted back to being unstable… (has there been studies) which show how other ways to stabilize a mentally ill person?

  • Storm

    Cool, good for Amanda. Tons of people recover from bipolar and schizophrenia and never take meds again and are totally fine. Good for her for having the guts to go with her instincts. She should write a book.

  • beara

    I hope she stays “better”!!!! 👍👌✌

  • Gabrielle

    That’s awesome. I hope she keeps it up. Mental illness is no joke and it will take a lot of hard work for her to stay stable. There will definitely be slip ups, but the important thing is that Amanda and her family stay patient and strong.

  • Gabrielle

    They could have had her on strong medications that sedated her. It is possible for her to be tapered off and have her condition (whatever it is) managed with therapy and other non-pharmacological methods.

  • Gabrielle

    Yes there are other ways. It sounds like she’s doing them. It does state that she’s doing yoga, meditation, pilates, and enrolling in school. I’m sure she’s also getting therapy. All of those are some of the non-medical ways to handle it.
