It's been five months and I've been treated with several combinations of drugs. It is frustrating, but with the time that passes comes updated ideas on what parts of my brain to treat with which pharmaceuticals, and as the treatment goes on they're working to figure out what's even wrong with me.
This is day 3 of Zoloft. It takes five days to affect the brain and about two weeks to start working.
I'm wary of all these medications, but everyone that is part of my group (not an official group, I am referring to my Facebook cheerleading cadre of friends and family supporting me in this) has said that you need to allow the process of experimentation with the drugs. That it's a necessary part of recovery, not to shy away from the process but allow them to try different things and find what drug or combination of drugs is going to work for me to make me feel better.
