The worst medication ever!
Saturday, July 05, 2014
This blog is about a medication that was suppose to help with depression and anxiety. Well, it didn't. It was awful. The problem is the doctor wanted to try mood stabilizers. The first one numbed me out and partially sedated me. My brain felt all tingly. I gained 8 lbs taking that so then the doctor wanted to try another mood stabilizer. Now, this medication works for so many people and that is wonderful but it was a nightmare for me. Personally, I feel the doctor was trying to treat a disorder I don't have. The medication made me feel confused. I seemed to be living in a daze. I wasn't acting like myself. At the same time, I knew who I was and was doing okay in my classes. Ended up with a two Bs and a B+. He also had me on this other medication that I guess is highly addictive and I want to stop that one too. Medication is not the answer for me. It made me feel worse in the ling run but I was being advised to try it up to the full dose by nurses, counselors and the doctor himself. I think meds have a place and are helpful for certain people but you do what is best for your mind and body!! Thankfully, I will be talking to a counselor on Monday and he doesn't like the idea of medicine at all. If you are a believer in god, pray things go well. If you are not, then just keep your fingers crossed for me. This is a big part of a healthy journey for me. :)
