I take paxil.
I use to be on 40mg of Paxil but I told my doctor it wasn't helping me enough & I wanted to try other things. I was then diagnosed with Bipolar & prescribed 250mg Divalproex. Tried it for over a month & it made me SICK. I go to search up more about it & find out it's mainly for Epilepsy but can be used for Bipolar. I had to stop taking it though. Now they're wanting to try me on a bunch of random stuff at one time but I don't want that because medicine costs too much & I can't afford it even with my father's Insurance so I've thought of just going back on Paxil just to be on SOMETHING. I just said it wasn't helping me enough but it did help me A LITTLE.
I will warn you about something though... If you ever decide to stop taking Paxil, I suggest cutting down your dosage slowly because I was just taken off of it all-together & the withdrawal symptoms were MURDER to me. Migraine, Vomiting, Trembling, Cramps & Fever. Pretty much what all Divalproex was doing to me the entire time I was on it. Then when I went off of it I felt myself again. I figured over a month was enough time to give it so now I'm on nothing at the moment but I need something cause I've been having episodes really bad.
Yes. Not completly comfortable saying what, but yes, I take various types of medications for various things.

Can't wait to get home and self medicate. Fml
I've been on and off Lexapro (10mg) for the past 10 years or so.
I take Klonopin whenever I feel like I'm about to have a panic attack, but those are becoming more and more rare.
