Basically i've been seeing my psych for two years now. i've tried a shitload of different meds. but nothing seems to work. any suggestions on something that has worked well for you? combinations?

Well, people here shouldn't be giving you medical advice, we're not doctors. Maybe you should tell your pysche that what he's prescribed you isn't working, not us. I was on a combo of buspar and paxil a while back, but it was for generalized anxiety and depression.

Sometimes doctors actually know what they're talking about ya know :smirk:

Try as few drugs as possible to begin with and tell your doc you want to start with the lowest doses. See how that goes and adjust accordingly. Good Luck.

Oh, GAD would mean generalized anxiety wouldn't it. Sorry kinda high and not reading things too carefully.

Anyways, it worked quite well. Now a days I don't take anything regularly, but I do have a script for klonopin to take as needed. Those two meds work good together, and its pretty regularly prescribed. Maybe ask him about those and see what he thinks. Good luck.

Yeah, that's true. Sometimes they do. But what's also true is a lot of psychs and doctors are paid and get a lot of their training by the pharmaceutical companies.

I concur. It wasn't until I stopped taking meds did my depression finally start to dissapate. While on them, I couldn't help myself get better at all. Absolutely no progression, and now I was a zombie. I numbly thought about taking my life many times, but at others I realized that's totally not me.

Stopped taking them cold turkey and had the most miserable withdrawal of my life. But now I'm doing awesome. Fuck meds, they should only be used as an absolute last resort. The only hard part was dealing with anxiety attacks because I never properly identified them, nor knew how to deal with it. But it's all in your mind. Use YOUR mind to beat whatever psychological problems you have. Drugs won't fix it. If you can beat it then you're set. And if you need some assistance from meds, then use them sparingly and be very careful.

Good luck, man. Not trying to force my opinions down on you, but offer a piece of mind. :sun:

That sucks man. I guess if your bipolar then a cocktail of meds is ok. I think its best to avoid all that though. Ive been taking xanax for a little over a week and love it. But its just a short term solution. Im going to a psych because my dad and mom feel weird perscribing me drugs themselves. I think Im going to try Buspar as every SSRI ive tried SUCKS.

Also what a lot of people fail to realize is that a lot of diseases, disorders, and depressions stem from a basic lack of a proper diet, water and exercise

i tried going down the route of taking prescription drugs to help solve my problems. it didn't really work and the side effects seemed to make things worse

the main things that helped me get better were an amazing girlfriend at the time and eating mushrooms, honestly. i am much more happier of a person ever since i tried psychedlics for the first time at 18 years old

like someone said we're not doctors, each "patient" is unique. i have taken wellbutrin, effexor, and various others and i personally didn't like them but drugs might be the answer for some other people.

My experiences have been similar. I felt like they just wanted to shove prescription pills down my throat without ever dealing with the source of the problems. They changed my drugs so many times. And I feel that in hindsight they did much more harm than good. I was just a disturbed teenager, but they were convinced I was bipolar, the next week it was schizoaffective, then severe depression.. nevermind that I scored in the 99th percentile on the intelligence tests.. when really I just needed someone to talk to about my problems, not be pumped full of synthetic drugs.

These drugs may help some people cope with reality but for me they just distorted it. False happiness is what I called it. A chemical smile.

I choose the natural way. Billions of people don't have a depression that can be treated with prescription pills. Depression stems from a number of causes, none of which zyprexa or wellbutrin or paxil is going to solve. Maybe a healthy lifestyle, coupled with a positive outlook on life will help. But I don't want to be addicted to mind-altering chemicals unless I choose to put them into my body under my own free will. Drugs are not the solution to all mental problems, although the pharmaceutical companies would lead you to believe that. They only treat the symptoms. Sure, some pills may be helping some people.. but no one can deny that the pharm corporations are doing it solely for profit, and pills are very much overprescribed, and misdiagnosis happens ALL the time. Consider the death rate of people misprescribed to pills, or who abuse them.

I think some people honestly have a chemical imbalance that only drugs can fix. I doubt this is the case with me but who knows. Drugs do allow you to see what your capable of though, kinda like shrooms in an awkward sense.
