It Seems To All Boil Down To The Meds I’m Taking

Psych meds are a funny thing. What works for one person may not work for the next.

There’s a lot of trial and error, and for those without a good insurance plan, their plight is a little more challenging.

As for me, I have been on the regimen I’m on for the better part of 10 years. And, all I can say is, “it just works.”

It works mainly in the sense that I stay out of the hospital, which is important to me.

To elaborate, the medication does not clear up my symptoms, it simply lessens the hold those symptoms have on me.

Another way of saying it is, “I have fewer problems with the particular regimen I am on.”

I guess I’ve just arrived at a place, where I expect mental health symptoms, but I also expect a degree of resilience on my part, in fighting them.

How do you view medications? In particular, the ones you take?

  1. I’m also on the med regiment that works best for me. I still have symptom of depression anyway, but I’m alive, which I probably wouldn’t be without meds. I have side effects, but they’re manageable, and the benefits far outweigh the downsides.
