    I've Taken:

    I Sometimes Need Medicine For My Medicine...

    I can't speak much about non-psychiatric drugs, but when it comes to psychiatric drugs I am a well seasoned user. I think the worst side effects tend to come hand in hand with the best drugs, which completely sucks (but figures). For example, the best drug I have ever been on...
