I have had moments in my life where I have dealt with my problems without medications, even group meditation(which I found very beneficial by the way)...but there came a time when my I was not weened off an certain drug and it messed me up so bad I had the worst breakdown I have ever had in my life, my doctor knew I was going off them and didn't tell me to ween off them or instruct me to!!!! I don't ever want to go through that again, even though I'm at a low place in my life right now also. I have been on Clonazepam almost 2 years and went off them once for 3 months, now I'm weening off them again. They were a wonder drug in the beginning, but has lost alot of the benefits for me, the killer is the side affects, I just want the damn things out of my system!!!!
Then my doc brings up putting me on an anti-depressant again yesterday because I definitely have depression, went from anxiety to depression(the depression and irrritation has taken over alot more than the anxiety). I have tried at least 5 different anti-depressants and I usually end up with the worst side affects and my stomach is so sensitive due to my IBS also. And I also hate that it takes so long for the drugs to get into your system, and takes so much longer to go out!!! I am pretty fed up and want to be able to deal with no prescription drugs, I hate relying on a drug to make me feel better!!! Another reason why I have been doing the homeopathic route, which is pretty rough right now also, but was told that it can be hard first starting out also.
Does anybody else feel this way, have some imput for me??? I think that my doctor has messed me up at times, I tend to feel like a guineau pig, but lately he's been more sensitive because of my stomach isssues and the side affects of pills. I just wanna be myself naturally!!!!
