I don't know about this. For some, especially 'newbies', meds are a problem. But for many of us who have been around for years, I think we live with the fact that we can 'get by', have periods of remission, to have some of the pain creep up out of nowhere...and then remission...kinda back and forth. I don't know if this is the ideal description, but I think it is close. Basically, if you have problems in life, no pill will make them go away, only your response may change. Plus, they say it can take up to 10 years to get a correct diagnosis, and often multiple meds are needed. I went through my 'denial' period...and my 'alternative medicine' period...I had the highest highs and the lowest lows. Nowadays, the waves can sometimes be overwhelming, but I can see the shore with more confidence. Basically, I work very hard on keeping on moving, moving forward. That of course is not all the time. Sometimes I am back in that pit of horror. I've learned to manipulate meds to rid me of as many symptoms as possible. You need an open-minded doc who will go the whole nine yards and be open to as much treatment options as possible. I'd rather tripple my meds than go back to those 'lost years'.

IMHO...
