    I'm on lamictal. I needed lithium in order to make me not sh and suicidal. So lamictal alone doesn't work for everyone

    buspirone only worked for me for maybe a month or two, and then started doing absolutely nothing- which is honestly one of the best reactions to a medicine i've ever had, because i had a month or two of almost pure bliss lol. i hear a LOT of people talk about lithium, which is something i've started heavily considering. i've been on a lot of peoples posts today raving about trazodone, but it worked so well for my anxiety that i didn't have the compulsion to do anything like that anymore. the only issue i found with it, is managing that + an ED; you have to eat enough before you take it or you'll puke/pass out, and i didn't weigh enough to even take the full, lowest dose (im not that underweight, just lower than the chart for this med). but it's something i plan on getting back into ASAP when my body lets me, because it felt like some kind of miracle med for me lol

    personally, lexapro, seroquel, gabapentin, and xanax worked for me. but i don’t take xanax anymore cause it made me physically sick. but the terrible thing about psych meds is that not every combo works for everyone there is no magic combo. i hope one day you find a combo that works for you, and can ease your troubles. stay strong. ❤️

      I have tried Seroquel and had a bad reaction to it but I can bring up the other ones to my psychiatrist! Thank you 💕
