    If you have taken meds could you please tell me if it has worked for you and if there has been any side effects because I might have to take some meds pretty soon. The thought of having to take medication is kind of scary because I don't want to have to take something for the rest of my life but I don't know that much about it.

    Hi! your question is a good one, but common for this forum.
    I really hated the idea of taking meds too. It will soon be 10 yrs now since I started. It was very very very hard for me to accept to take pills everyday; you have to deal with the issue in your best way in your gut.
    There is a medical area of the forum that might help when you know what kinds you are on. Sometimes the dosage is too much, or not enough. Other times the side effects are too bothersome, or is isn't working at all. It is a real trial and error game, I feel also, each person reacts in their own way due to body chemistry and all.

    I have been on many anti-depressants and prefer the newest one. I like to brouse sites on the web to learn the medical benefits. I am Bipolar, so I must take some mood stabilizers too. I can see the difference if I miss 2 days of meds. One new med I am on has a tremendously terrible taste if it touches my tongue. I must take it with milk or juice.

    Hope this helps a wee bit.
    Let us know how it goes!
