> Why do you spend so much time thinking about the medications you are taking, scrutinizing them for every effect they may have on you? Sometimes I wonder if you're able to make the distinction between a symptom and an effect of whatever drug you may be on.
Well, I don't usually experience daytime sleepiness, abnormally low blood-pressure, physical weakness, mild forgetfulness and confusion, extreme insomnia or periodic improvements in cognition in my baseline state, so I think I'm fairly adept at picking out symptoms from side-effects. Plus, it's not like I'm performing this trial via mail-order; unless my psychiatrist is equally incompetent, I trust we have some picture of what's going on.
And the reason I agonize over side-effects is because I have a right to -- when you are too cognitively dysfunctional or socially alienated to do much else, what are you meant to think about?
