I'm with you, thinkfast. I just hate these meds so much and while they can offer some temporary relief, I really do think they just mask symptoms and don't do anything for any underlying problems.

What I mean by this is that I started taking ADs over 10 years ago, and now I feel like I am worse off than when I started. The ADs may make you feel better for a while but that is really just masking symptoms, it's not like they heal any of the underlying brain chemistry. So when you go off the meds, your back where you started, and in some cases (like mine) you are actually worse off because these powerful drugs have fried your brain (not literally fried, of course, I'm just saying that I really feel fried and burnt out after all these different meds).

> I'm saying screw them all...for the most part because of the unknown effects later in life. My dad ended up with parkinsons disease and has been on all kinds of AD's. I don't care what they say about the safety. There's just too much they don't know about these drugs and the brain. Seroquel is one of them I'm ready to be off of. I'm only going to take it when I can't bear the insomnia 0.02$
