I'm new here. I normally post on another forum here.
I need to get on psych meds...badly. I'm going through some very stressful times and it's affecting other health conditions that I have. My problem is that I want to do research so I can be enlightened on this topic
--- However, I don't know where to start my research on medications. Any ideas?
And yes, medications is something my doctors and I have spoken about. I am trying to get counseling...for one reason or another it just has not happened as of yet.
Things I do not want as side effects from my psych meds: mainly jitteriness, weight gain (don't want to gain my lost weight back), insomnia, and hair loss (I'm already losing a lot of hair from having lost weight rapidly). These are things that are already affecting me. It could be way worse!
Another thing, I have taken xanax and zoloft before but I felt so spacey. I need to be functional.
