    When I was first "rediagnosed" as SA in the summer of 2004, my doctor actually questioned between that or bipolar disorder. I was given Lithium (yes - it's like eating a battery!), and it took what OCD I thought I had and blew it up. I would check things 10 and 20 times - I guess my attention span became that short.

    After a week of taking the med, I told that doctor that I just had to stop taking it. Something was definitely wrong. She then tried Lexapro - did nothing, and then Paxil. I have been there ever since. Actually, I was up to 50mg/day at my worst point. Today, I am at 20.
    Heard a lot of horror stories about Lithium. Never actually taken it and honestly I'm scared to. Hopefully I'll never have to.

    I could understand that it works for some, but that's a different kind of drug.

    I have heard horror stories about Trazadone. Ffs.

    I've heard it leaves you with a hangover that you will never, ever forget. And I've heard you wake up in this "fog" that you can't snap out of.

    Buspar by far was the worst poison I ever took.

    Buspar was just candy to me.

    I guess Lexapro. Useless for both anxiety and depression, at least for me. Felt extremely tired all the time. Dear SSRIs: I need help getting OUT of bed, not staying in it. >.<
