Are Meds the Answer?

Okay, this is when I would like to ask, is MEDICATION REALLY the answer we need???

Years after we go on these meds, we STILL have the same issues as before, just the symptoms have been delayed. And now we have the symptoms, issues, AND physical problems with coming off of these meds.

I urge all of you who are considering upping or lowering your dosage to consider quitting completely. Brain altering drugs are not the answer to our problems. Up it, lower it, and you will feel better for HOW LONG? A month? A year? In a year or so, you'll be back on a board like this with the same darn complaints and the same darn issues and you will find that you just again wasted precious time avoiding your real issues by taking a drug that only smooths over the surface of your problems.

Or do you plan to be on these drugs for the rest of your life? If so, are you truly living your life? or are you wasting your life ignoring your problems? Our PROBLEMS are here for a reason, we must recognize this and learn what lesson they are here to teach us.

Don't waste your life. Get off these meds. It's going to be a nightmare to do this, but it's better to do this now than waste one more SECOND of the precious little time we have here.
