Help me with my psychotropic drug addiction

Posted by Chinaboy on March 29, 2015, at 2:16:10

Do please take some time to read my long post if you happen to come across it, because Im in urgent need of advice and opinions to get me out of the painful abyss of psychotropic drug addiction

Everything was fine until two and a half years ago when my pdoc put me on Abilify to augment other antidepressants. It didnt do much, so we quickly gave up on it, and moved on with other med combos. However, the idea of Abilify kept on haunting me from behind, forcing me to restart it, add it to other med combos by self-medicating. Later on, this behavior of self-medicating got generalized to include all the psychotropic drugs. I may take 10 kinds of drugs in one day, gave them all up the next day, and try others instead. Most of the drugs I try are antipsychotics. Please tell me what to do!

My pdoc and I worked out an intensive OCD treatment plan. We tried every SSRI and clomipramine, max dose, enough time. But they are so useless! We want to augment them, but have no idea how.
One pdoc once pointed out that my symptoms are not OCD because its unlikely for all the conventional treatments not to work a bit if it is true OCD. He said that the psychotropic drugs are addictive by nature, and that Im addicted to them just like a guy becoming addicted to controlled drugs. What do you think?

Whats more, now Im on Nardil, but the idea of trying an SSRI never leaves my mind! Please help me!
