i did TMS in february and it did nothing for me. i would have gotten the same benefit from someone poking me in the head with their finger for 45 minutes.
i'm in this situation because of psych meds. my brain is very different and i dont think it was ever meant to be messed with by meds. when a medication has its effect on my brain, 9 times out of 10, it does not go away after stopping the med. my brain doesnt see the need to revert back to normal.
there are a few specific problems i have had from medication, and i think i have a pretty good idea what happened. one of the biggest problems i've had was from Mirapex. for a few weeks while i was taking it it did nothing for my mood, but it did increase my sensitivity to sexual stimulation. after after a few weeks though.. my emotional response to pleasurable things was drastically reduced. i stopped taking it and tried Tianeptine and after 2 weeks on it, my pleasure response was made even worse. the i moved on to ritalin and after 1 dose i was made even worse. then i got the idea to try cyprohaptadine.. and i believe through its 5ht2c antagonism it helped me. when that receptor is blocked off, your brains natural response to pleasurable things is increased and your brain releases more dopamine in a much more natural way than when it is forced to by meds like ritalin. and mirapex just acts like dopamine, causing too much stimulation.
i also tried counteracting the effect mirapex had on me with Risperdal and then Seroquel, i took the risperdal forabout a month and a half and it did nothing for me. i couldnt feel any effects of it. it was like a sugar pill. i also tried Amisulpride too. i have tried a few herbs and natural thing, but havent gotten any benefit from any of them. and i talked to a pharmacist last wednsday and he is extremely knowledgeable on how herbs and thnigs work.. he said he was going to call me by friday to tell me if he found anything. now frday has passed and he hasnt called...
i will call him tomorrow to check up on it, though.
