I Hate Taking Meds

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 208 People

    The Right Stuff.

    It's really amazing what the right medication can do. I never hold expectations for any change. But this new med...Effexor.... has made me calm, even in the face of adversity. I can think more clearly, respond more coherently, and feel more respite. It's not only the med that...

    It's a Love-hate Relationship

    I have resisted taking medications most all my life.  I am the girl that doesn't even like to take a Tylenol for a headache--not even one of those headaches that throb so badly it feels like your head is going to explode in all directions.  I forget to take birth...

    Its What They Represent.

    I hate that I can't get out of bed, can't function unless I take my pills.  I hate that I have to be medicated just to feel 'normal'. I hate that they can mess with me so much. I hate that I need a stronger dose.  I hate that despite hating them, I can't be without...

    Five Years...

    I've been on some sort of anti-depressant/anti-anxiety pill for FIVE years!  I was first on Lexapro, but it made me sick.  I was off it for a few months, and then they put me on Paxil, which I hated!  It killed every emotion inside of me.  I went off...

    Walking Disease

    I was diagnosed with waaaaay too many diseases. Bpd, schizophrenia, photophobia, depression, anxiety, pts, and I'm still bulimic and anorexic. I hate taking meds. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I've always wanted to cling to my depression. I want to wallow in my despair. I...

    I stopped taking them this week, as I had a few things to write up for University and basically, I feel that I write better without them.  Otherwise, I often feel that I can do without them, that I am ok, it is wrong, but I feel it anyway, and I feel fine the first...

    I Don't Think I'd Mind If

    the meds actually worked! I'm bipolar, bulemic, and a cutter, among other things, and the meds I've tried just don't cut it (no pun intended). I've gained weight like crazy since I started taking psych meds and needless to say, that doesn't help the ED or anything else for that...

    I just don't like to take them, unless I have to. I wasn't raised stuffed full of meds like people, especially kids are now. I especially hate pain meds. I like to feel "normal." Not doped. But it drives me crazy to see these parents cramming drugs down thier kids...

    I hate that my health, mental and physical, relies on my taking pills daily that can only be gotten from pharmacies. It makes me feel tied down, trapped kinda. When I didn' have all these medications to take I felt a lot freer
