    this is the longest i've been on meds, different varieties, different strengths

    11 months now

    not making a difference

    just took my last up-dose

    not going to renew - still have renewals on lower dose - going with those to taper off then stop

    don't know what to do

    the few who pretend to care (not many) say i look better but they don't see me crying in the bathroom or at my desk

    took the burns test 3 times - feb, may, last week - same bloody score - amazingly consistent

    so what do you do when nothing works?

    If you feel like they arnt working then you right you should stop taking them. But maybe something else will work? I mean meds dont fix everything but they lighten the blow a bit. I love you!! :wub:

    In the same boat as you, after almost 3 years of taking meds, just stopped taking them about 6 weeks ago, after a while I really don't think that's a good solution depending on them for so long.:argh: Yeah, as far as talking to psychs go... hopefully you'll get an alternative to either one of those, there has to be.:unsure:

    I know what you mean I've been in the same hole for so long now.I've tried that many meds have done pretty much everything and nothing helps.I can't even smile anymore,nothing works no matter what I try now at all.I'm at my wits end with all this shit also to be honest.
