I would have to say sometimes. I am on two non-psych meds right now I simply don't think I could make it without. Prilosec for GERD and Bextra for arthritis and back pain. I gave up Depakote and Wellbutrin 18 months ago after listening to everyone tell me I shouldn't. I had been on both for probably 10 years and could no longer afford to buy them.

I don't think the Depakote was doing that much for my migraine headaches, and it SURE wasn't helping my mood. The Wellbutrin "may" have still been taking a slight edge off the depression, but it was definitely not worth the financial out of pocket cost. I was still quite depressed taking it, and was too anxious on doses of 400mg or more which I would probably have needed again to respond. My personal opinion is that it "quit" working.

Ambien for me has been cost effective. I do build a tolerance to it so I only take it one or two nights a weeks. That way it keeps working. A decent night's sleep can make all the difference.
