I don't know if I'm the only one who feels this way but I'm having trouble reading through all the postings and getting a handle on the meds, due to the number of choices, how to know what meds might be effective for me, how to sort through the side effects vs symptoms, etc.
I have been reading this site for a few years now and I find it more confusing than helpful.
One one hand it's a great source for support and advice, but on the other hand I don't know how anyone can sort out what might work for them.
I am baffled and confused most of the time after I read a few postings between the various classes of drugs, dosages, combinations, etc. I think too many drugs can mess someone up pretty good too.
Frankly, since I am so drug phobic(sensitive) the thought of being on more than a couple of meds makes me nervous. How do you know that the combination of meds isn't causing you to feel like sh*t rather than the depression or whatever dignosis you are treating.
Help me see how all of this information can be useful rather than overwhelming.
