> The reason for using a few different medications is the different mechanisms of action. Unfortunately, things can get complicated up there in that still very mysterious brain of ours, and there are not highly effective medications that are customized for the complex needs of each individual. Psychiatry is still in a very archaic state.

4 months ago I was an agitated, jittery, heavily depressed mess of a person with regular suicidal thoughts. My doctor was trying to tell be I had rapid cycling bipolar disorder.

I have slowly cut most of my med doses in half (Zyprexa Pristiq and Lactimal).

I have improved out of site. My mind is clearer, I am no longer horribly agitated. My general anxiety is pretty much gone or back to a 'normal' level. My mood is generally low to average but that is a pretty big step up from suicidal.
I still have my original social anxiety, what I initially started taking medication for.

Changes in your being are so subtle that you don't realise what effects these drugs are having on you until you escape the effects and look back. When you are on three or four it is so hard to tell what is causing what.

You are most likely being treated for the side effects of one drug with another and so an and so on until you end up in a bit of a mess.

Case in point. I was in a drug induced state of depression agitation and anxiety.
