> Please post here why you do not like meds and why and what you tried them for and if you still are on a med or trying a combo to get one of the combos to work and what condition you are treating. Thanks Phillipa
I hate calling them meds,i.e medications.I personaly and just me wont sugar coat my situation,im on drugs.Im dependant on them.
Now i wonder gone back a decade what would have happened had i never swallowed that first effexor pill,i cant dwell on that,maybe id be in a better place now,maybe not.
But the medication is prescribed with very little medical practice on site,im being kind here a p doc has not a single actual medical tool in their vicnity.
Instead general questions are used to determine if a CHEMICAL drug should be given,thats kinda scary.
Seeng pens and pads around the office also scares me.
I personaly wonder how technialy in tune the "general" p doc is to a question about how the drug they are using really works,if they truly know actual scieance of it or what the sales people say.
Im not surprised though that deeper concern,and research are done,i mean the drugs bring in a lot and a lot of money,they also are enough to mask a lot of peoples symstoms so people really need them........so i dont see a rush to the labatory doors to bring them out faster better.
But from reading years of meds,i cant say i ever saw one person feel they were cured,but at best treated,masked,enough to function and live.
I personaly wish to god with every ounce of my sould we had some actual medication that people feel something dramatic happened while on it,and feel they are cured.
I know i never would have guessed in a million years id be here at age 27 writing on the topic i am,tommorrow i will pull out the old ALPHA stim and add it in,as i never really gave it much of a shot aftet detwrminging it near useless on arrival,but im needing options now,and im tired of mutatlating myself cause its only that much more harder when u chrash,and u do chrash,
