  • I took Paxil for 60 days and it quit working in the 90s after being on Zoloft for 90 days and it quit working. I’m on 5 meds now because without them I’m suicidal and homicidal. I don’t have a choice. I don’t have a luxury like normal people of a choice. It’s easy for these holistic people to tout choices when they don’t have to live in my head. I’ve been in the mental health system since 1993. I’ve been having nightmares since age 3, on no meds because I was abused. So the sleep disturbances are going to be there either way as far as that goes. If I could afford it I would get TMS, but I can’t. It’s my only option at this point to get better.

  • The problem for people like me who are on Klonipin, Lithium and 3 other meds at the moment, having been on meds since 1993, is that I’m suicidal and homicidal off my meds so not being on meds is not an option. I don’t have the luxury of not being on meds. My meds have been changed a million times. The only hope for me now is TMS which I can’t afford.

  • Well, as someone who dated a schizophrenic and was his victim, watching him go off and on his meds since 1996 has been a horror movie. Having said that, I was diagnosed bipolar at 12 and am on five meds. Without them I’m homicidal and suicidal. For all you anti-medication people, that’s all well and good, but, believe me, you don’t want to see me off my meds.
