If you were a diabetic, would you be concerned about having to take insulin the rest of your life? Probably not, because you need the insulin to keep on ticking. The same thing goes for AD or meds. When properly prescribed and taken, meds are life savers. Hang in there. There is no shame in having to take meds the rest of your life. It is a necessity.

> After 8 years of pure hell (resisting suicide every day) I have finally found the med that lets me sleep and quells my anxiety. Zyprexa is a miracle drug, but I don't know how safe it is. I noticed my tongue twitching a few weeks ago, so I stopped the Z and the twitching stopped after a few days. Now, after another dive into the black hole, I'm back on Z at a lower dose and my tongue is not twitching yet. Don't know what is going on here. Clonazepam worked for me, but after a few months, it pooped out and left me with another big decision: increase the dose or step off. I chose the latter. God, I hate having my life revolve around meds! I used to be a competitive 10k runner, and now I spend most of my time obsessing about meds. I'm seeing my p-doc on Wednesday but don't know what to say...but I do know my nervous system is buggered and that I will probably have to pop pills for the rest of my life. Where do I go from here?
