> Hello Everyone,
> I am new to the board. I am concerned that the medications we are given often do more harm than good, although my doctor tells me that is "my depression talking". Sometimes I wish I never started taking medication for depression. Even when it works, the results never last, and the illness gets worse as time goes by. I often wonder whether it is a natural progression of the illness or a result of the drug treatment? I guess no one knows and the pharmaceutical industry certains doesn't want to know. From the looks of the posts on this board, a lot of people experience the same thing. I would just like to stop all the medications but am afraid that it is too late. Sorry for the negativity but I have pretty much lost hope. Has anyone out there ever really gotten better and had it last??? Thanks for any feedback.

yes even though i had Bipolar and ADD and anxiety and had incompetent, apathetic, busy doctors, after a bit of research on this board and in the library i managed to get back to almost 100% ... i consider my quality of life far better than the average normies ... and on par with most of my friends (who are really cool, ambitious, aggressive people)

and BP + ADD is one of the hardest conditions to treat because mood stabilizers and stimulants often counter act one another ... but my efforts paid off big time .... even had to cross the border and try my own med (abilify) which i do not recommend btw ...

oh and i also have zero side effects that i can think of ....... weight loss maybe? increased libido?
