It’s frustrating when you reluctantly agree to try a new pharmaceutical medication, only to be disappointed with a lack of help it provides.
I spent years refusing to try any mental health medications, regardless of what type.
I thought that they would rewire my brain as well as change my mental thought process for the worst. Even if I got some relief it wouldn’t be worth the cost. I’m glad that I was totally incorrect on this. I tried half a dozen different antidepressant drugs, as well as I didn’t recognizably appreciate the effects I got from any of them, however none of them had any lasting effects, especially negatively. Instead, they helped a little, which is much more than I expected. As such, I didn’t want to throw in the towel while trying numerous medications. But, the SSRI meds didn’t work well with my brain chemistry. However, a neuropathy drug called gabapentin that is used off-label as a mood fixer, worked wonders. At long last I felt some sense of stability with my day to day psychology. But the best form of relief came when I tried a cannabis oil 1 day that my buddy had on hand. Both of us live in a state that has both medical marijuana dispensaries as well as legal recreational cannabis stores. Most shop in the recreational stores because it costs more to keep a medical card. This cannabis oil turned out to be distillate oil, which has a massively high THC content compared to cannabis flower products. For the first time, I felt all of my depression simply be gone.
