I've been off of all my medications. I was only on them for 6 years as a desperate attempt to save a broken marriage. Now that it's over. I didn't see the point anymore and I felt they were hurting me more than they were helping. Everyone felt that I shouldn't be on the pills. So I quit taking them. The downside was I had to deal with my feelings about my ex wife and the divorce. It hasn't been easy.
So much better. I took some nerve/pain meds for my legs 4 or 5 years ago. They were prescribed of course but the side-affect was a tendency for suicide. I didn't know that until I started reading about the med. I took it only for as long as I needed it about 3 months.
