Posting, Asking and Sharing

How our medications effect us, etc.

The treatment of mental disorders is a personal trial and error process.
Your wonder drug or combination of, will be discovered totally independent of what may or may not work for another individual. If one drug was the answer for everyone, then there would be only one drug on the market. We all react differently to different medications and varying dosages.
