    the shrink wants me to go on Lexapro for depression but I don't think I am depressed, grieving yes, depression no. I told her I was not interested and to talk to the hand. She still pressures me to go on it, but after reading about side effects and people having trouble getting off, I am not interested. I have a busy life and don't have time for side effects.

    If you don't believe you need to be on the anti-depressants the shrink shouldn't be pressuring you, instead she should let you know it's ok and you can change your mind at any time. But thats just my opinion :smile:

    And yes, I'm on medication:
    Epilim 1000mg and Lexapro 20mg for bipolar disorder (possibly borderline personality traits); and
    Murelax (oxazepam) for sleep issues.

    Every week she goes on about it, thats why I told her to talk to hand as I wasn't really interested. I feel like saying ok and then ODing on it and telling her, then she'll get off my case. She even wants to give me free samples!!!

    i haven't taken clonazepam for ages. days i think. i only take it when i think i'm going to die in the next few hours/ in the next 24 hours and the pain is unbearable. sometimes it works, sometimes it doens't.

    i take it because i'm dying.

    I currently take Zoloft 100 mg for depression and social phobia and Zyprexa 2.5-5 mg for anxiety ('cause Zoloft isn't enough). I also take propiomazine (sleeping pill) when needed.

    Clonazepam as needed for panic attacks. I have quite a stache saved up as I don't take it unless necessary. Plus they hate giving it out because too many people abuse it.

    Interesting... now I suppose I understand why everybody thinks medicine is such a huge deal this day in age. Being a "sheltered" teenager I haven't even heard of most of these medications though.

    Most recently I've been on zoloft, abilify, and trazodone.

    I used to take quite a lot of medication over the years (Amitriptyline, Olanzapine, Citalopram, Alprazolam...) the last thing I took was 40mg of Fluoxetine about a year ago and a - stupidly - weened myself off it (I wouldn't recommend this!).

    I now take nothing, not a thing. After meeting a bi polar girl who said she was quite comfortable and happy with her mania as well as her depression, because it was all a part of who she was and why should she take anything to stop that.
    Which although I found strange it made me want to try and see what my own life would be like without anything blocking my mind. Sometimes it's really difficult but I'm just about holding it together.

    Tried zoloft and lexapro for depression, the side affects were brutal. So I get by on 1.5 to 3 mg of xanax. Also my pain meds. take the edge off of the depression (I don't know why) Vicodin, 7.5/750 twice a day.
