Hi Phillipa

I think meds help _me_. My life has improved markedly since finding a medication regiem that works well. However before finding this medication regiem it would be harder to pin an opinion on whether the medication was a help or a hinderance. There were numerous problems and any benefits seemed slight and barely useful.
I also think however that meds dont help everybody. Im sure many people doggedly try medication after medication that doesnt work when other treatments might yield results. For these people is medication a hinderance? well its hard to say. Perhaps after perservering and persuing that elusive medication they find it (like I did) and all is better in this case I would say no medication is not a hinderance even when it didnt work as the person needs to try medications to find one that works. Coversely if that person is directed away from other treatment options and cursed to never find a med that works then it probably is a hinderance. I think overall a balance needs to be struck some people will benefit from medication others wont. The only time you will be able to determine for yourself if medication is help or a hinderance is after you have either found a med that works or decided that treatment with medication is innapropriate for you and another treatment is superior. As far as I can tell the determination can only be made with hindsight.

Best regards Bunny
