Eddie is right to point out inaccuracies and bad sources of information, but Lemon's general direction has some truth too, many people abuse prescription drugs, ALL prescription drugs have side-effects, lots of side-effects.
There are also plenty of people on medication who have no problems at all, side-effects are, after all, only possibilities.
If i were you adarkplace, i would just try it and see. You are your best yardstick as far as judging whether or not taking a particular drug makes your life-quality better or worse.
You don't need our advice.
I was diagnosed with a mental psyndrome a while back and agreed to take Prozac. At first it made me happy, manically happy ! Then the positive effects lessened and the negative ones grew.
So last year i decided to dump it and use weed on a regular basis, because my condition and current life-stresses work together to cause physical symptoms as well.
For me it was a good thing to do, to dump the prescription drugs.
But i still value the meetings with my Psychiatrist
