I am sure I have no place posting here or if this is even the right thread for it, but I have to share-
I have been diagnosed with chronic major depression and severe anxiety since I was 14. At 18 I was attacked and have since suffered PTSD. I have been
on an array of medications. I am now 24, doing well in school, have a great family life, a healthy social life and healthy body and yet I am compelled
to take these 3 drugs daily. One drug is particularly bothersome as I have begged to come off of it. The dr agrees, I'm more than ready however the
withdrawl symptoms are terrible and I absolutely cannot bear the side effects of these chemicals leaving my system. When they are in me I am sick to
my stomach but when they are not in me its so much worst that I almost swallowed a whole bottle to just stop the shaking, vomiting, stabbing head
pain, severe dizziness, hallucinations...
Why continue to prescribe these to people and advertise for this medication when I hear from my health care professional that I am not the only one
experiencing these symptoms?
I'm sorry, I guess I needed to vent, but can anyone relate?
