If you can only be happy through medication, is it real?

Have you used anti-depressants successfully? How did you deal with the insinuating little voice that said, "You may be feeling better, but it's really just the pills--without them, deep down, you're still a sad/angry/dysfunctional person." [more inside]

how do I recover my medication mess...?

I'm supposed to be taking 300mg Effexor XR every day. Except I've been so grumblingly ill this last week and a half that I've not bothered. What's the best way to get myself back up to speed? Impact load or slow tapering? And how slow...?

How long did it take you to adjust to taking Synthroid?

How long did it take you to adjust to taking Synthroid/levothyroxine? I just began taking 25mcg this week and I'm feeling weirder by the day! I've tried googling for info, but all I can find is hysteria-filled message boards claiming levothyroxine is manufactured by Satan himself.

Prescription drugs in Singapore

Traveling to Singapore with lawfully prescribed prescription medication including antidepressant/antianxiety drugs (klonopin, wellbutrin, and paxil.) Is it sufficient to pack these in carry-on luggage in their original bottles? Is a doctor's letter necessary/recommended? (Nothing says overcautious like "mandatory death penalty.") Thanks.

Lamictal for depression?

Is Lamictal effective for treating depression? I have a life-long history of depression with a 20 year history of SSRI use. They are effective. Recently I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and a new doctor, after one meeting has taken me off Zoloft saying it would make the mania aspect of bi-polar worse and Lamictal is the only treatment needed for depression. She actually said it was an anti-depressant. I know my depression is worse, getting even more so and, because of my HMO am having trouble finding a second opinion. Does anyone have experience with Lamictal as an effective anti-depressent?
