Unhappy does anyone else never do good on any meds ever - October 20th 2013, 11:12 PM

every different medication i've been on makes me feel like shit.

the most recent one (i can't remember the name of it tbh) is for my anxiety, and the moodswings it gave me practically pushed me into an anxiety attack. i upped the dosage too fast the night before. i had been on half of one for a week, and i had decided to take a full one.

never fuck around with those dose on your daily anxiety pills, ever

Ya it's a good idea to stick to the dose you're prescribed too, plus with any new medication you can experience side effects. I've been down that road a few times.

It's a good idea to always take your medication the way it's prescribed to you. Unless a doctor told you to up the dose it probably wasn't a great idea to do that on your own.

As Michael already said, all medications carry the risk of side effects. It's important that you let your doctor know that you're experiencing these side effects and then they can either adjust your dose or change your medications accordingly.
