    I would only take psychiatric medication if I was literally forced to do so. I rarely even take ibuprofen for headaches. Granted, I only get a handful of headaches a year, but I only take ibuprofen for the worst. I didn't even take the prescribed painkillers when I broke my arm.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I get bored sometimes and I chew on pencils. The taste is kind of good.

    Oh, and about the coffee thing.... Even an ounce of anything with coffee in it will give me huge jitters and I'll start bouncing off the walls. I can't stand the stuff.

    I don't take any meds, but maybe I should!

    Default How many of us take psychiatric medication?

    I've taken mood stabilizers for years and always will as I have bipolar I with rapid cycling and a tendency to mania/mixed mood. Life is too unpleasant for those I love when I'm not on meds; I also hate hospitals. I've been prescribed ALL the antipsychotics but had severe adverse drug reactions. Take Klonopin for anxiety. I don't like the side effects of the meds--or at least the Depakote--but dislike mania and depression and mixed moods even more. Now, hypomania...! If I could maintain at hypomania, I'd never take another pill.

    BTW, I feel the meds merely mask the symptoms and don't change who I am. I wouldn't trade having bipolar for being a "normie"; the "illness" has enriched rather than detracted from my life.
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    I have in the past but absolutley hated the side effects.

    Should I be on them? According to my therapist, yes. I'm functioning though, and I'm happier off them than on, so that's what matters the most

    Ok, ok. Methylphenidate.
