    I'm on Sertaline 50mgs

    for my depression but given that I've only been on it for about a month, the doctor wants to see me again to find out whether it's working for me or not.

    Which is very expensive.

    Thankfully I have a doctor with a heart and gave me a coupon for me to get the meds for free for a year. However I have other medications that are expensive and no such coupons. So it is crazy that the news I really need and work are so exspensive I cannot get them. How is that...

    In my group of friends we have this joke going

    on that I do drugs. I chronically take ADHD medication, have been for like 7 years. Medication like that is practically a soft drug, so we sometimes joke that I'm a junkie. I also carry painkillers around. But yesterday it came up and this friend asked me if I was actually...

    I've always been a bit aggressive

    but that was only in mind and not out. Now it's slowly starting to show and my mom thinks it's the medication. And I kinda think so too and yet at the same time I don't.

    "Stay High" I have a strange relationship

    with drugs, having started on psych meds in my early teens, and began drinking right around then, too. Marijuana became part of the equation at 16. Currently, I am prescribed Xanax, Vistaril, Zoloft, and Beyaz. The first two are anti-anxiety meds, the former being an addictive...

    I take 1 'Sertraline' a day (a light

    anti-depression medicine). I have been taking it for 4 months. Sadly it doesn't really work, but maybe I just got to give it more time. I also take 1x Nasonex and 1x Aerius a day, because I am allergic to dust.

    I'm on acne medication

    and should be on something else but I'm trying to handle this myself. I pick at my acne and hair that has pimples near it. Due to this I have scars on my face and currently have two different defects in my eyebrows from recent breakouts.

    I've been on Zoloft (depression

    Been on pain meds since march 2014

    because my backs now totally collapsed down in lumbar spine area. And even stronger ones since first of sept 2014 for surgical removal of 8 infected teeth and jaw bone. Not getting addicted though as I am ever so cautious of them especially the stronger ones.

    I have to say that medication has helped me.

    A lot. If you saw me four years ago you would have felt sorry for me. I wanted to die, to dissapear from the world, feeling crushed and unwanted. Now I can recognize that I am happy, and feeling loved. I can leave my house, I can go to places, I can do anything.

    for a while now due to depression and anxiety. I am honestly unsure if it has helped. And after two days of forgetting to use it, I feel virtually the same. Anyone have experiences with Prozac?

    That I should probably take more often then I

    do. I'm gonna end up in like a diabetic coma if I don't. Oh well, I'd just get yelled at for it if that did happen. I'd be in a coma and if I woke up from it id wake up to screaming. Yeah, I'm bad at remembering my pills.

    I have depression, and it's a god sent,

    but if I get in financial trouble and can't afford it, then I'll be tossed further into hell. That's why I refuse to take it, but as I'm afraid that I may need it. That's life I suppose; **** my health and happiness. First and foremost is that god awful green.
