    Here is a current article on MedShadow discussing the mental health topic, but I’d love to better understand individual, personal processes or tips on how you found a good balance: https://medshadow.org/mental-health-matters-what-to-know-about-mental-illness/

    I still cannot find a medication that works. I am focusing on some of the tips noted in article, like walking, sleeping schedule, eating well, etc.

    I tested many myself, but finally landed on Zoloft (generic) which works for me. I had been on it for many years and recently had to add Wellbutrin too. I had asked my doctor about the negative side effects (known by many) of Zoloft, and was concerned about (I’m female) sex drive. They suggested to try this addition. I am still unsure if it is making a difference. How do you tell if yours is working?

    I was on so many meds, I can’t even remember the number anymore. Do these things even work? I am with Ash. I have yet to find any that have helped move the needle for me. I’m not sure these things are just a pharma sham, aimed to make more money but not actually “cure” anything.🤬

    I wish there was a better way. I feel like every person is different, so of course every med works differently (or not at all) on each individual. I have heard of genetic testing or using what may have worked for a direct relative (a parent)? Has anyone done that?
