Afraid to get on any medication

Posted by WaterSapphire on August 29, 2008, at 3:21:23

This is going to perhaps sound dumb and I thought I should put it here. It is not just psych meds I am totally terrified/reluctant about now...but all medication in general I seem to be scared of.
I am willing to take medication if I absolutely must for my health especially for quality of life and comfort, or if it actually is working for whatever illness it is supposed to treat. Because of fear that my kidneys are not quite right (despite normal kidney function labs), yet a few other things point to issues that doctors I have seen won't address, I am now also very scared of going on anything at all. Pain meds that were fine for years, got to be too strong and overpowered my system last fall to where I had to come off of them on my own. If I am going to get a medication, it really needs to be something that if I bother spending my money on...that it needs to work and not be something I have to stop taking. I am too poor for that. So, I have this fear. I am doing better with supplements, but I really am hoping to get what I need for both mental and physical health problems. Will long term medications for ocd hurt my brain? I felt like my mind is not the same as it used to be.
I am feeling pretty ok right now, but the OCD definitely needs some help lol...
