When Medicine Makes You Worse Not Better

The past year has been both one of the most amazing and hardest years of my life. And I realized when I talked to my doctor last week that I have been getting worse not better with all the meds.

I reached a high point of 5 different medicines. Three I take everyday and 2 as needed. This is the most I've been on since I came out of psychosis 6 years ago.

We decided together that we need to re-evaluate. So I am getting off Abilify and Zoloft. Amazingly enough being on Lamictal, Abilify and Zoloft has made me MORE depressed not less.

In the two weeks since we started reducing my dose ... I feel amazing. Like the old Rachael.

Anyone else have a situation when you got worse not better on meds?
