So who here is on medication? I’ll be seeing a psychiatrist tomorrow but some part in me wants to not take meds if I am prescribed one because of all the things I’ve read like it messes up your mind or brain chemistry or something. So what does it feel like when you take your happy pills? Do they even work? Has it messed up your thinking?

I wouldn’t even start them, but my best advice would be for you to read negative/positive reviews on the medication you are prescribed there is a good site called

Now the negative reviews ARE not lies (I have a feeling the positive reviews might be or just left by the naïve, gullible and vulnerable.)

I have wrote my story of what happened when I was forced on meds (19th birthday) I was in a very healthy state of mind and my body was in the best shape I’d ever been in my life, upon my first dose I started uncontrollably vommitibg. I didn’t understand why and that it was due to the meds because I was too young to understand. I should have heeded that warning but continued my meds because I was promised disability benefits if I stayed on them. ( I had been unemployed for 1.5 years and figured I’d commit suicide no matter if I was “happy” “sad” “satisfied” or “unsatisfied” so the money would have helped me there. I didn’t realize the pills would destroy who I am from the inside-out. (And they never got me disability by the way) but I did gain 50 pounds in 3-4 months.

Truthfully from a completely non-bias standpoint, there was not one positive effect from the medication. It is kind of like “hmm, is this even doing a thing?” Until you wake up just not feeling right and you smell death on your sheets and you can’t control your movements. I stopped the medication and swore against them after I noticed how bad the negative effects were, but three years later and the negativity from those doses is still negatively affecting me.

I can just leave this off with a billy Mays quote “life’s a pitch and then you buy, buy, buy.” Everyone has health insurance so it’s easy for them to get you to believe it you are feeling blue that this is a miracle drug, but it’s just another sweater you get for Christmas that doesn’t fit your curves correct at all.

But hey, all you’ve to do is read up on the reviews and make a choice from that. The website is everyday health. H*ll, some of the psych meds out there have very harmful effects like “holes in the brain” or causing “fibrosis of the heart tissue.”

I think good clean natural health is much better remedy. Walking, tea, healthy diet following food pyramid.. but it’s your chance to take

Agreed. I add a few more things to your excellent list. The good about the natural stuff is that if something does not help no harm was risked at all. But most natural things I do or have done seem to work quite well. None have ever harmed.

Wow. Ok. SP is eating comments today. . . Thanks. Just ate my reply.

Ok, well, apparently I’m not meant to reply to your question, yet another eaten reply. So, in short, meds might help, they might make things worse. Be careful, watch for harmful side effects, report them to your doctor immediately.
Good luck. I’d like to expand, but this site is eating my replies. Apparently I’m typing a prohibited word or something.

I take meds. I have to. They help me. But keep in mind that it takes weeks and you may have to adjust doses and change medications to find out what works for you.

I take meds. Without them I could not function, I go into a very dark place. But, like ravingbean said, they don’t work instantly, it takes time. Also, no all pills work the same way for everyone and that is not different than any other treatment. It will be a trial and error before you and your doctor can find the perfect combo and dosage. It is not true that the meds messes with your brain, they help but you will need to give up alcohol. Mixing your meds with alcohol will mess with you and you will feel the meds are not working. You can probably have an occasional beer, but that will be it. People who take these types of meds and drink and take illegal drugs will find that their meds don’t work or makes it worse.

Be honest with your doctor regarding you alcohol consumption and any illicit drugs you may be taking, if any.

Thanks for the responses guys. Looks like the smart way for me to go about this is to take meds and try them out first and see if there are any adverse effects. I’m still kinda apprehensive though. I know people who have taken meds and some of them are kinda unhinged when you approach them.

I remember the first time a psychiatrist offered me meds. By then I had seen what the things did to four people I knew. Two killed themselves, one lost her career, one became zombie like. After I said no thank you I changed over to a therapist. She has to rely on good theory and her wits to help me. And she has. And I never have to worry about her offering me drugs. Not long after switching to a therapist my own sister was admitted to ICU directly attributable to mental meds.

I tried an SSRI that shit made me more suicidal but no one believed me buyer beware on those psych drugs and meds I prefer to vape my hypocrisy is my own. Compulsive vapor type of deal used to be a compulsive smoker when it comes to cigs.
