Hmm... I've never had much sympathy for medication (in my own particular case). Perhaps because of my history of drug abuse. My thought was always 'if you are going to have a drink then have a DRINK!' or whatever... And I basically took that approach with psych meds, too. So there were periods early on where I was happy enough to be sedated practically into a coma or... Whatever... And then when I quit my drug abuse (mostly) I sort of quit psych meds along with it...

But there is something that I read yesterday (and I need to spend more time doing a more careful reading) that talked about findings for different relative transmitter levels and different global processing that seemed to go along with those... And there might possibly be something useful there for me...

I see how it might be useful to have a p-doc who was appropriately sensitive to what was going on (by spending some actual time really talking to you about how you are finding things) doing medication adjustments.

I do wonder about psych meds... I am going to need to learn more...
