    Recommended medications?

    I'm just reading this thread now and wondering what was the result. Like you, I have a similiar long list of failed medications (over a 35yr history). I end up with every side effect or the med stops working. At this point I would like to try CBD oil without THC but want to do it under...

    Therapist Shares Her Med Taper

    I want to thank everyone for their thoughts. I have some better clarity about separating out what is going on for me. Before this came up, for a few weeks I've had concerns whether this Therapist has anything else to offer me. I have been stuck restarting my life and overcoming/facing...

    Therapist Shares Her Med Taper

    On my way out from therapy (and I don't even remember how it happened), my therapist mentioned that she is considering doing a taper from her psych drugs.

    Leaving Psychiatrist - Irrational Fears Sending Me Into Anxiety

    I think I am looking for a space to write/clarify my thoughts and get some feedback. I probably need to leave my current psychiatrist but as a trauma survivor I have so many irrational fears that the thought of making this break sends me into anxiety. I have seen this doctor for 10 months...

    Seroquel turned out to be bad news - any experience weaning off of it?

    What are you taking instead of the Seroquel? My doctor suggested it and after reading reviews I was skeptical. I'm feeling stuck in my symptoms yet the medication choices don't look great from the standpoint of side effects and the awful withdrawal.

    Purpose, passion, and ptsd

    This is me but I am 54. After my accident my purpose was to heal physically. Then - boom- I can walk and I can drive and my old life, work, friends are gone. I've been in therapy for over a year looking for that elusive purpose. I found out that my PTSD is really CPTSD. Accident or not I...
