    Extreme Brain Fog

    Lamictal for bipolar tendencies and Campral for OCD. I have tried many things and combinations of things. This combination works for me, but my brain is fried. My short-term memory is shot and it is hard to add even simple numbers in my head. Being an engineer, this is a big...

    "uppers" And "downers"

    I take prozac and adderall in the morning, anafranil and ativan at night.  I need drugs to wake up in the morning and to fall asleep at night.  I can't function without them anymore which is probably unhealthy.  Not sure if I'd be better or worse off without all...

    I Take Medication

    I'm a migraine sufferer and have been for 10 years now. I got my first migraine when I was 5 and I can honestly say it was one of the worst experiences in my life. I went blind, saw weird shapes and had the most banging headache I'd ever experienced.  I didn't know...

    I've stopped. I just couldn't take it anymore.

    Yes, I know it really did help me but not in the way it should have. It more or less blocked me from processing my problems and feelings and put me in this state of mind that just kept me from getting too sad. I think medication does help some people. People with a legit...

    Sure it's a 'harmless' anti-deressant, yes it's supposed to make me feel happy, but I don't want to be pilled for the rest of my life just to feel happy. I guess since doctors can't figure out how to treat people other ways they just pill us and hope that we get better. To tell...
